Wigging Out Over Palin

Palinmania has spread to Brooklyn, where Orthodox women are scooping up Sarah Palin wigs at $695 a pop. It's a safe bet you won't see too many guys duplicating the Joe Biden hairplugs look, unless of course you want to dress up like a moron for Halloween.
The Sarah Palin wig? Jew betcha.

A line of wigs based on the Alaska governor's famous coif has been a huge hit with Hanukkah moms, according to the owner of the Brooklyn shop that designed them.

"We've sold about 50 'Sarah P' wigs in the past five weeks," said Schlomo Klein, vice president of Georgie in Borough Park.

For 30 years, his store has catered to married Orthodox Jewish women, who are required to keep their hair covered. Many do so by wearing the wigs, called sheitels. The Sarah look costs $695, and the side-swept up-do comes in 44 different color combinations, the most popular of which so far is Palin's brown.
