Sarah Palin Look-a-like Gets Hate Mail And Nasty Phone Calls

BANGOR, Maine (AP) -- A Maine TV news anchor who bears a resemblance to the Republican vice presidential nominee says she's been getting "hate mail and nasty phone calls" from viewers who think she's trying to copy Sarah Palin's signature style.

Cindy Michaels from WVII-TV has long brown hair that she sometimes wears up in a style similar to Palin's, and she also wears glasses on occasion.

Michaels says viewers recently began accusing her of trying to copy Palin's style or, worse, somehow trying to subliminally sway votes.

While smarting over accusations of bias, Michaels says she's generally flattered by the comparisons to Palin. Michaels describes her as a "beautiful woman."

    To John; Sarah Palin might be ugly but that doesn't necessarily make Michelle Obama ugly and I support Mccain. To imply that Michelle Obama is ugly just because Sarah Palin might be is exactly the kind of covert racist and prejudice comments used by true wimps like you who are causing the current crisis we're going through and the worst part is not acknowledging that it's a racial comment and giving a candid apology for it. It's exactly the kind of new age philosophy that implies that wrong doing should be rewarded and goodness should be punished as stated by Ted Nugent who's a true republican in my view. Unfortunately, you're not a true republican even though you'll probably vote for one which you don't even deserve to. I hope though, that one day people like you will grow up even though some of them include 80 year olds who should already have.

    TANK... I don't think the article said anything about her trying to look like Sarah Palin, but then, that's not a bad thing. She's beautiful.... a lot better looking than Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton!

    Sarah Palin is HOT because she looks just like Hank Hill's wife, Peggy.

    To Tank; I know now how you came up with your name "Tank"; you're in the tank for Obama. Too bad, being in the tank for obama makes you think a good looking women like Sarah Palin is ugly. I guess you think Michelle Obama is good looking! LMAO

    Obviously, liberals are so desperate they would do anything, even evil. Just goes to show you what these people have become. They will lie, cheat and steal to get their way. This is why McCain and Palin will be running this country. Tank, you better get used to looking at her because you will see her for more than 4 years.

    She is a pretty woman for sure. I just do not think its fair just because you look like someone that a bunch of crazies should be writing you. What are those people thinking? They need help and fast. Very immature, and pure evil if you ask me.
