Sarah Pee's Legacy: It's In The Eyes

If Sarah Palin did one thing for this nation, it was to expand the meaning of eyewear. No longer do glasses automatically connote intelligence. And no longer do glasses mean you're not a sex kitten. Clearly Dorothy Parker, that tightly packaged bubble of caustic sass, if alive, would be forced to amend her seemingly age-infinite adage, Boys Don't Make Passes At Girls With Glasses. Something like a general guideline to help get us back to glasses as the original signifier of intelligence would be useful. Maybe: Don't Make Glasses For Girls That Cannot Passeth (school exams) Because It's Confusing For Everyone.

And Tina Fey is going to have to find a new way to pretend she's ugly on 30 Rock.
