Somebody said 4th District Republican candidate Beth Anne Rankin had remade herself in the image of Sarah Palin. I scoffed. Then I checked her website and found some recent campaign photos. Hair and glasses (right) do have some similarity, don’t they? Below is an earlier photo of Rankin. Another good example of the new look is here — Rankin with Dick “Toesucker” Morris. Careful, Beth Anne.

(PS — Not to laugh, by the way. Sarah Palin’s backing has helped several candidates. Will she come to Ark.?)
