Tin Pei Ling and Sarah Palin

Tin Peiling and Sarah Palin

Tin Pei Ling, at the age of 27, is the youngest woman candidate to be unveiled by the People’s Action Party in recent history, and the youngest candidate since former PAP MP Ng Kah Ting was fielded in 1963 at the age of 23.

Sarah Louise Palin, 47, is an American politician and commentator. She was the youngest person and the first woman elected Governor of Alaska, an office she held from December 2006 until resigning in July 2009. In the 2008 presidential election, she was the Republican Party nominee for Vice President, becoming the first Alaskan on the national ticket of a major party and the first Republican woman nominated for the vice-presidency.

I can’t help but notice their names kind of rhyme with each other’s and both had the effect of boasting a more youthful image for otherwise solemn ruling parties.

Oh… and I found two images of them sharing the same taste for caps.

  1. She’s quite pretty and has the brains and talent. Too bad her husband’s already balding.
