I remember when Sarah Palin wore a mini skirt to the Memorial Day commemoration organized by the Alaska Joint Armed Services Committee, and there was such a public outcry that you would've thought she was spitting on the fallen soldiers' graves. I am by no means a right wing conservative, but give me a break. As far as I'm concerned, if you've got the figure, there's no bad time for the mini.
Well, in the late 60's and most of the 70's, politics when hand in hand with high hemlines. It wasn't at all uncommon to find a candidate flanked by a bevy of beauties in short skirts. Of course, if the candidate had been a woman, I'm not so sure the press would have been so approving.
(ahem) I'm thinking the girl on his right must be his daughter..... I'm searching for an explanation.
Here's a few more images of politics & protest featuring our friend, the mini-skirt. This next photo is actually from a Rockefeller campaign rally. Wow.
