The cover of Business Week’s European edition, Nov. 16, 1998:


No, Sarah Palin and former DaimlerChryslerBenz CEO Jürgen Schrempp aren’t wearing exactly the same glasses. But they’re similar, no?

Still, I’m not gonna accuse Palin of wanton cosmopolitanism: Angular, rimless glasses were a frighteningly Teutonic fashion statement when Schrempp first donned them in the 1990s (he has since moved back to regular rims). Nowadays I imagine you can get ’em at the Eye Guys on North Main in Wasilla.
