America's most controversial hockey mom has inspired a new item made for religious women that probably isn't sold up there in Alaska, gosh darn it!The imagery here is not necessarily working for me. Call it a failure of imagination or experience on my part, but I just never met a Chassidic woman who aspired to look like a moose-hunting hockey mom. The imagery further devolve:
The 'Sarah Palin Wig,' based on the hairstyle of the Last Frontier State governor and GOP vice presidential candidate, is the latest head covering to go on sale at Sheitel.com, a Brooklyn wig shop and Web site for Orthodox Jewish women who maintain modesty by concealing their natural hair.
"One of our stylists thought it would make a good style, so we produced it," said Boruch Shlanger, one of Sheitel.com's owners, in an e-mail to The Shmooze. "It is very easy to maintain, and is a very classic look, yet fashion forward!"
'There had been requests for Hillary Clinton wigs in the past,' wrote Shlanger, who temporarily produced Clinton sheitls, 'but none recently.'Oy vey.
