Bristol Palin Accuses Michele Bachmann Of Dressing Like Sarah Palin "I think [Bachmann] dresses a lot like my mom. But a lot, a lot of women have done that the last few years. I do think it`s odd, you know, seeing people with red blazers with their hair up with glasses." The Palin clan is green with envy because Michele Bachmann has eclipsed Sarah Palin. Bachman has garnered positive publicity by doing well in the New Hampshire debate, and by doing better than expected in the polls. Meanwhile Palin`s surreal bus tour elicited only scorn and ridicule from the press, no wonder the former beauty queen quit her bus tour.
