The Sarah Palin phenomenon enters new stage

Today came arguably the clearest sign that Sarah Palin is a force for Obama to reckon with. She crossed firmly into popular culture with word that her glasses are a popular fashion item.

Searches concerning Sarah Palin’s glasses spiked today on Yahoo!.

The Palin glasses are being spoken about in the same sentence with Sally Jesse Raphael‘s glasses back when she had a TV show, and Tina Fey’s glasses now (the star of NBC’s “30 Rock”).

Crossing that dividing line between political culture and mass popular culture is a big deal. And Palin’s done it. So has Obama. So, in the scope of popular culture – they are now perhaps even opponents.
