It's come to this: A nice local television anchor in Bangor, Maine is getting hate mail from people who are convinced she looks like Sarah Palin, on account of her nearsightedness and occasional bun.
How dare Cindy Michaels go around reporting the news while blatantly resembling an Alaskan hockey mom?
Check out this tragic video, in which Cindy combs her hair and a disgruntled viewer slams her "cheapo glasses." (Full disclosure: I am also a bespectacled brunette, and I did not pay a lot for these glasses.)
Clearly, this is a difficult time to be a nearsighted non-blonde, unless you happen to be good at impressions.
Thanks a bunch, Sarah Palin, for sabotaging my right to choose an updo.
