Sarah Palin Has Secret ‘Lou Sarah’ Facebook Account To Praise Other Sarah Palin Facebook Account

  sarah palin 'likes' sarah palin

Amazing grace, how sweet the ghostwriter.
Sarah Palin has apparently created a second Facebook account with her Gmail address so that this fake “Lou Sarah” person can praise the other Sarah Palin on Facebook. The Gmail address is available for anyone to see in this leaked manuscript about Sarah Palin, and the Facebook page for “Lou Sarah” — Sarah Palin’s middle name is “Louise” — is just a bunch of praise and “Likes” for the things Sarah Palin likes and writes on her other Sarah Palin Facebook page. “Lou Sarah” even says “amen” to Facebook posts by Sarah Sarah. UPDATE (2/23): The “Lou Sarah” account has been taken down.

So we’ve been reading this leaked Palin book. Interesting read! But this manuscript doesn’t seem quite ready to be published, despite it being leaked around to the entire Internet. Frank Bailey and his co-authors excerpt a bunch of Sarah Palin’s e-mails, and one page of these excerpts shows Palin’s personal Gmail address. We searched for this address on Facebook, the way millions of people search for people on Facebook every day, and it appears that Palin keeps a second Facebook account. Besides staying in touch with Sarah Palin’s father brother Chuck Heath, what does “Lou Sarah” use Facebook for? Saying “amen” to her own Facebook fan page missives, in the guise of a completely different person. “Lou Sarah” also really “Likes” Bristol Palin’s Dancing With the Stars photos.

Yeah, your editor friended her. Fingers crossed!

“Lou Sarah” is also friends with some of Sarah Palin’s political appointees. Still, “Lou” has only 12 total friends on Facebook.

“Lou” is a fan of Sarah Palin, Bristol Palin, Mark Ballas (Bristol Palin’s gorilla-costumed dancing partner on Dancing With the Stars), and the Wasilla-based Edge Fitness.

From what we can see, “Lou” wrote a total of four happy things on Bristol Palin’s fan page in recent months:

How the unemployed spent their spare time.
Hey look, she spelled her daughter's name correctly! (She doesn't always do that in these e-mails.)
If only they knew how much they liked it.

This is our favorite, because she liked her own comment:

Dance for Mark Zuckerberg's invasive default privacy settings!

“Lou” had some inside knowledge Wasilla’s Edge Fitness was going to be featured on Sarah Palin’s Alaska. She alerted her fellow plebes:

WRASSLIN' MOOSE!

Here’s the full list of “Lou Sarah’s” recent Facebook activity that was visible to us. Ah yes, the BlackBerry:

Can Slate stop doing those dumb fake Facebook profiles now? Please?

Apparently Palin is not reading the liberal newspapers and other publications that provide news about Facebook privacy settings. Still, Sarah Palin “liking” a Fox video about the things she likes? Very meta, “Lou.”

According to this profile, Sarah Palin is not friends with Frank Bailey. But then again, she’s also not friends with her children. She’s just “likes” one of their celebrity fan pages. [Facebook]
