    sarah palin comparisonFavorite email of the day: Jonah Green, video producer at New York Magazine, and Sam Henig, a writer for Newsweek and Slate are throwing a Sarah Palin look-alike contest/party this weekend. The contest will be judged by Max Short of GQ and catapults these three into my heart.  Their email below:

    What an inspiration. If not as a leader, then at least as a fashion icon. The hair! The glasses! The cute gun accessorizing!

    In honor of McCain's vice presidential pick, join us this Saturday for "Palin Comparison," a Sarah Palin look-alike contest. Be creative: if you don't have thick brown hair and Tina Fey glasses to work with, perhaps you have a freshly slaughtered moose, or a special needs baby. And what's a hockey mom (aka pitbull with lipstick) without a few hockey players?


    So come to Arrow at 85 Avenue A between 5th and 6th streets at 10pm this Saturday, Sept 6, in your best Palin garb. Let loose your closeted GOP fetish, your secret hunting lust, your inner sexy librarian/hockey-player baby-daddy. Free drinks and fun prizes will be awarded in multiple categories.

    See you there.

    Jonah and Sam
