Sarah Palin Impersonator Shows up at CPAC 2011

There's no question that Sarah Palin is a media star. So when a woman with Sarah Palin's iconic hairdo, dressed in a bright red skirt suit with an American flag pin, oh and don't forget the trendy thin-framed glasses, shows up in the lobby of the very hotel where the Conservative Political Action Conference is being held, there's going to be a mass frenzy!
Young kids went up to her and shook her hand, reporters tried to get interviews with her, and absolutely everyone wanted to get a snapshot of her!
However, on closer inspection, this person was simply a Sarah Palin impersonator, not the real deal.
Earlier this week, Palin declined an invitation to speak at CPAC and drew criticism from some conservatives, including former Sen. Rick Santorum, one of several CPAC guest speakers considering a presidential bid. Palin has said she had a scheduling conflict.
So Lyons seized the opportunity to give the CPAC attendees what they wanted. A representative of the entertainment firm accompanying Lyons said she has performed as the former governor at many venues, including on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
