What if Sarah Palin is the parody?

This past weekend on SNL, Tina Fey once again parodied Sarah Palin, this time using Palin’s actual responses from the now infamous Katie Couric interview.
But what if Sarah Palin really is a parody?
What if this is all just a crazy character and she’s working us all, like Borat or Andy Kaufman?
Think about it in pure stereotypical, demographic, Hollywood terms:
A former beauty queen from a small town in Alaska who marries a half-Native snow mobile champ; She’s a born-again young-earth creationist who is blessed by a witch-hunter and believes the Flintstones are real; She has five kids, including the oldest (named Track) in the military, and her pregnant, unwed teenage daughter planning a wedding; Palin wins mayor on big, national, wedge issues; She goes on to governor, where she gets deep into a scandal that started with a sister in a bad divorce with a state trooper.
Then she was picked out of obscurity and thrown onto the Republican ticket at a time when the country is in the middle of two wars and struggling with a floundering economy.
What a great bio. You couldn’t write that. No one would believe it.
What if she’s just locked in the punch?
