Don't be surprised if you see a few Sarah Palin look-alikes in Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods like Brooklyn's Borough Park. A wig wholesaler there says its Palin wig has become one of the company's most popular items.

Georgie Wigs Vice President Shlomo Klein says the company has sold about 50 Palin wigs since the Alaska governor became John McCain's running mate.

Klein says the Palin wig is popular because it is conservative yet fashionable.

He doesn't think it's odd that Jewish women would model themselves on Palin, a devout Christian. Klein says Palin is at least pro-Israel.

The Palin wig sells for $695.
