Miss Alaska 1984?

Posted Tuesday, September 9, 2008, at 8:18 PM

Okay, people, looks as if no one is going to post a photo of the Republican Vice-presidential candidate as Miss Alaska 1984 - so I have to do it! And you KNOW how I hate to get involved in political matters -- even if they're as fluffy as this topic!

Actually, I do have a good claim to the right of posting photos of Miss Alaska candidates, as my very own cousin - Linda Rowley - was Miss Alaska the year we moved up to Fairbanks. Somewhere I have a photo of her in the Midnight Sun costume which won the title, even if she didn't. In fact, I googled the topic and discovered that Linda is on Wikipedia! No, hoon, there's no photo on the on-line encyclopedia.

It was, in fact, hoon who inadvertently gave me this idea, since he went so BONKERS over Ms. Palin on one of the other blogs. I was just reading B.J.'s blog when the topic came up again - so VOILA! Here it is!

I have found another site with more photos of dear Sarah, but to the great disappointment of all her male supporters, there is so far no SWIM SUIT shot! Even though I distinctly remember that catagory being a part of the competition. So sad.....

Okay, so I'm not going to ruin this touching moment by chattering on endlessly.......I'll just fade off into the distance and let all you disgusting members of the masculine gender drool all over your computer keyboard....

Maybe I can round up a few more visual treats for you this week....

Does that gold crown in the background spell out "hoon"???

Actually, Ms. Palin was the runner-up that year... So, why is she wearing a crown? The winner that year was a black girl who is living in Virginia now. She's all over the internet, too!

Ms. Palin may not go on Letterman, but I'll bet the REAL Miss Alaska 1984 WILL!

Why should Palin go on Liberalman. Nice to see Oprah showing her true colors too, standing tall and proud for women all over the world and NOT having Palin on her sorry show. I am sure Hillary wouldn't have been invited either.

This is a photo of Sarah Palin as the title holder of her local pageant which qualified her for the state pageant. So she was "Miss Small Town" who went on to compete in the Miss Alaska pageant (where she did not win the title but was a finalist) in the Miss America Pageant system. Hope that clears it up.

I believe she got a college scholarship out of the deal. Pretty good for runner-up.
