I was sitting here trying to think who she reminded me of.

Thank You!!

Here's another photo--she's a dead ringer.

Republicans have a bridge to sell you, and a nice house in Alaska, too. It just keeps getting stranger....

Apparently, Peggy's also a role model for Jane (from Wikipedia article):

As the series progressed, increased emphasis was put on Peggy's superiority complex and her egotism. She frequently aggrandizes her own accomplishments and is often unintentionally encouraged by others, such as her continual recognition as substitute teacher of the year, although she won the first award due to the fact she created it. Her belief that someone can do anything if they put their mind to it often leads her into trouble when she takes the philosophy too literally; she often believes she can do something for which she has not the skill or background. It is perhaps not the fact that Peggy thinks so highly of herself, but in her assumption (and expectation) that everyone else thinks equally highly of her, which leads her into predicaments.

Unlike Peggy, Palin was runner-up for the Miss Alaska title, won Miss Congeniality in that contest, and plays the flute.

I'm sure you agree that these are great qualifications for a president if McCain kicks the bucket while a president.

Well, I have to admit that winning "Miss Congeniality" was never on the resumé of Dick Cheney. And I hear her shooting skills are MUCH better than his!

Is she a redneck as Mrs Hill?
She has a 17 years old pregnant daughter. Maybe that qualifies her a red neck?

After listening to her interview the other night, her voice lingered in my head, and I suddenly realized where I'd heard it before: She's the mayor of "South Park"!

Big article in the New York Times today:

Once Elected, Palin Hired Friends and Lashed Foes

Gov. Sarah Palin lives by the maxim that all politics is local, not to mention personal.

So when there was a vacancy at the top of the State Division of Agriculture, she appointed a high school classmate, Franci Havemeister, to the $95,000-a-year directorship. A former real estate agent, Ms. Havemeister cited her childhood love of cows as a qualification for running the roughly $2 million agency.
[...]

--And the story just gets worse from there...

Did Sarah kill off her lookalike?

Just have to reiterate the comment above--who knew just how accurate the description would turn out to be?

//Her belief that someone can do anything if they put their mind to it often leads her into trouble when she takes the philosophy too literally; she often believes she can do something for which she has not the skill or background. It is perhaps not the fact that [Sarah] thinks so highly of herself, but in her assumption (and expectation) that everyone else thinks equally highly of her, which leads her into predicaments.//
