So There Are Actually Two Sarah Palins But Don’t Panic You Guys!


A perfectly logical explanation for this, after the jump!

See?

The only possible conclusion is that the one on the left is a post-op Meghan McCain. Hey America, just try ignoring Meghan now that she’s actually Sarah Palin.

    Sarah must feel like she’s looking into a mirror! Except for the fact that when Sarah looks in the mirror she only sees a swirling black cloud and thunder.

  • Extemporanus

    I predicted this months ago.

    Palin’s body doubles should totally hook up with Saddam’s body doubles to create history’s greatest monster.

    Insert Battlestar Galactica reference?

    Threesome.

  • JMP

    Shouldn’t the intelligent alternate-universe double have a goatee?

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    Wow, she’s even got that chin-jutting smile down. Not enough highlights, though.

    One of the other pictures shows that she’s sitting in the religion section… which is about right.

    Thanks for the aneurysm , Wonkette.

    It takes a lot of dedication to fly to Hoth just to raid Princess Leia’s old closet.

    Do you think the woman is still alive?

  • ManchuCandidate

    [re=464945]Pilate[/re]:
    The Sarah Palin, also known as Number 42, was generally acknowledged by the Cylons as a failure due to it’s delusions/narcissism and it’s lack of perception and any knowledge.

    Personally, I’d rather see more of these Cylons:

  • Snarkalicious

    I beg your pardon. Do you think that woman(?) is still alive?

  • iburl

    Not Surprised. How many Kim Jung Il’s, Saddam Hussein, and Bin Ladens are there? Why should our torture-loving, lying-out-their-ass, violence worshipping (wannabe) dictators be any different?

  • Extemporanus

    Check out this wide shot from the same book signing.

    Whoever took the photo deserves an award for outstanding editorializing.

  • CapnFatback

    That Tina Fey is good.

  • Oldskool

    Sure she can do her hair like Sayruh and wear the same glasses but can she ramble incoherently and be applauded for it? The bar is high, lady.

    Does the twin also have a slutty daughter with a bastard child?

    The Freepers are dedicated to the cause!:

    I would rather stick a very private and important part of my anatomy in a meat grinder than to shop at Best Buy.

    Oh, and this Freeper’s not shopping at Best Buy, but will participate in an Honor shunning:

    I am buying both a laptop and desktop for myself this year and will get one of my daughters (the oldest) a laptop. My youngest continues to be a disappointment so she will not be recieving much.

  • Advocatus_Diaboli

    “Why just the other day I was telling my other brother Daryl and my sisters Sarah and Sarah how bad those taxes are, you betcha.

    “Also.”

  • Lascauxcaveman

    I will never, ever again fantasize about making it with identical twins.

    Thanks for that, Wonkett.

  • Vulpes82

    Sarah’s look is totally, “Listen, bitch, there’s only room for one Sarah Palin in this podunk town, and I’m her. When I get out of here, I’m going to shoot you from a helicopter. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!111!!! Also.”

  • Snidely

    They could be the Doublemint Twins if the one on the right could just learn to walk and chew gum at the same time.

  • JMP

    Looking closer, the Palin on the left looks a bit younger, from maybe around 1985. Don’t worry, young Sarah; you can find out what traumatic event caused your life to go so wrong, and fix it – and America – when you get back.

    Unfortunately, we don’t actually have Mr. Fusion available yet in 2009, so generating the 1.21 gigawatts might prove difficult.

  • Dreadful Gate

    I’d hit all three of ‘em. Hard. And repeatedly.

  • Joshua Norton

    Funny thing is you can’t find Palin’s book anywhere in San Francisco. Funnier thing is that no one has even asked for it.

  • Extemporanus

    [re=464945]Pilate[/re]: [re=464963]ManchuCandidate[/re]: Sarah is Number 2.

  • Cape Clod

    At that point Palin lept over the table, knocked the woman to the ground and started strangling her while screaming ‘There can be only one!!!’

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=464964]Snarkalicious[/re]: It depends on your definition of a permanent vegetative state.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Hopefully, it will be like Highlander.

    One of these two Sarahs will lose their heads in a death duel.

    “THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE! ALSO!!”

  • Wanderlust

    There is no blonde streaky hairdye left in Real Merika.

    Last year Dolly from the Family Circus was Sarah Palin for Halloween. I predict we’ll be seeing a lot of that in the future, too.

  • V572625694

    [re=464988]Joshua Norton[/re]: Well duh! because SF isn’t “real America,” as everyone knows. There probably aren’t a lot of HBO “Real Sex” episodes filmed in Wasilla, either.

  • chascates

    Were the plastic surgeons suggested for breast reduction, liposuction, or what?

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    Oh great, another illegitimate Palin.

  • rottenart

    I think all you people talking about a Wonder Twin Sandwich are overlooking the danger posed to the space-time continuum if they were to actually touch. I think I saw it on The Twighlight Zone. Or maybe The Simpsons.

  • Madeline

    Oddly, the woman next to fake shiny-vest Sarah is a Nicole Wallace look-alike. Coincidence?

    Fake Nicole Wallace is telling fake Sarah Palin that the fake Katie Couric (7th from left, blue shirt, white sweater) has low self-esteem.

  • Jim89048

    I think Sarah on the left is hiding yet another pregnancy.

    Dear Megan–stop complaining and take a hint.

  • Centrist

    Wonkette, this Centrist loves you but there are really three Sarah Palins. This one stars in a famous music video…
    I was watching the new Eminem video “We Made You’. Its an excellent vid. I was intrigued by the celebrity look-alikes and then I noticed an absolute ringer for Gov. Palin. Turns out its the adult film star who played Sara Palin in the parody ‘Nalin Paylin’. It is the most read post on my site to date…

  • Prommie

    Can this doppelganger talk like this, though?
    O’REILLY: Let me be very bold and fresh again. Do you believe that you are smart enough, incisive enough, intellectual enough to handle the most powerful job in the world?
    PALIN: I believe that I am because I have common sense, and I have, I believe, the values that are reflective of so many other American values. And I believe that what Americans are seeking is not the elitism, the the kind of spineless… a spinelessness that perhaps is made up for that with some kind of elite Ivy League education and a fat resume that’s based on anything but hard work and private sector, free enterprise principles. Americans could be seeking something like that in positive change in their leadership. I’m not saying that has to be me.

  • magic titty

    Sheesh. Let Katie from Des MoinesSarah be Sarah!!

    [re=465019]Country Club Jihadi[/re]: She certainly doesn’t need it due to Nature’s stern barriers.

    [re=465019]Country Club Jihadi[/re]: that’s no woman, that’s John Denver!

  • BlueStateLibtard

    I think Megan is actually talking about her father. He is the only “human” I know who would actually do this. I may be poor white trash living in the underbelly of a bankrupt East Coast elitist state, subsisting on hobo beans and cheap laughs, but at least I don’t have to deal with that.

    She didn’t mention them, because Meghan didn’t get it when people gave her the brown paper bags.

  • V572625694

    [re=465033]Prommie[/re]: Ms Palin’s prose is like (pick one):

    (1) a surrealist game of Mad-Libs.
    (2) Edward Lear on meth.
    (3) Successories wisdom randomized and strung together.

  • S.Luggo

    [re=465033]Prommie[/re]: That would make a great bumper sticker. The whole quote, I mean.

    I wonder if John Woo has seen this photo? I smell a Face/Off sequel!

  • Extemporanus

    [re=465058]V572625694[/re]: I’ll reaffirm my my vote for Mad-Libs, with the added observation that she appears to have skipped all the noun blanks, and instead focused solely on the verbs, adverbs, and adjectives. I believe she then went back and filled in more adjectives where the nouns were supposed to go. And in the margins. And on on her hand. And…

    Also, Lear on meth actually sounds like something I might want to read. Redundant, also.

  • NYNYNY

    [re=464939]pampl[/re]: Popular activity among straight Republican men. The subtext of the action is “If you get enough plastic surgery, I might find you (a woman) attractive.” The sub-subtext is “Get a sex-change.”

  • NYNYNY

    [re=465081]rottenart[/re]: Suck/Off. Oh wait, that’s already a movie.

  • rottenart

    Also, if all Palin fans were to engage in this level of commitment to their idolatry, they’d be a lot easier to recognize and ridicule.

  • Magog

  • rottenart

    [re=465093]NYNYNY[/re]: Scrolling down to Woo’s filmography, I’m amazed at how many of those titles would fit a movie about the Palinator Twins:

    Plain Jane to the Rescue
    Paycheck
    Run, Tiger, Run
    Once a Thief
    Laughing Times
    All the Invisible Children

  • Rotundo

    [re=465245]brown_recluse[/re]: Well said! I was wondering if the doppelganger Palin would have to have a lobotomy so she could get the intellectual side to match Caribou Barbie too. I’m thinking that the answer is an unqualified “You Betcha”.

  • DickRod

    So, apparently, getting plastic surgery to look more like Snowbilly means getting a MAJOR LEAGUE boob reduction. I mean, honey, you gave THOSE up to look like Palin?? Jesus wept.

  • Bebe Loves You

    “I am Sarah Palin of Borg. Resistance is futile. Your life as it has been is over. From this time forward, you will service us.”

    Yeah, that pretty much sums things up.

  • Boojum

    The caption on this photo on the actual Facebook page, which says it was added by Sarah Palin herself herself, is as follows:

    “Gov. Sarah Palin talks with a woman who’s looks resemble that of Gov. Sarah Palin at Borders bookstore during the third “Going Rogue” book signing event Thursday, November 19, 2009, in Noblesville, IN.”

    “who’s looks resemble”. And people say she isn’t smart.

  • sweet old bob

    Well,I got two Palins and I’m not ashamed…two Palins and I love ‘em both the same…but I digress and there may actually be three if you squint and include the short one (who really looks more Alaska) behind the one on the left. Anyway, the real reason I wrote was to put you on notice (as if you didn’t already know) that Slate is having a “Write like Sarah” contest and I’d dare say there are quite a few of you who would be up to the challenge since she’s not exactly Hemingway.
