Short-Shorts Pics: Sarah Palin’s Body Politic

Things may not have worked out so well for Sarah Palin in the election, but John McCain’s former running mate is already experiencing sunny days again.

The Alaska governor—who caught some heat for her expensive campaign wardrobe—hit the pool in Miami in considerably less ostentatious clothes yesterday, donning a pair of skimpy shorts while basking in the tropical climate of Florida.

The 44-year-old former beauty queen was in town for a gathering of the Republican Governors Association yesterday, where GOP state leaders discussed the challenges facing their party and the country in the coming years.

The eagle-eyed lensmen of Bauer-Griffin captured the former candidate as she rebooted poolside.

The conference was also attended by Texas governor Rick Perry and Missouri gov Matt Blunt. And no, pictures of Perry and Blunt in thongs will not be forthcoming. You’re welcome.
