In this April 2, 2010 photo, Gail Lortscher, Manhattan, Kan., a participant in the Tea Party Express national bus tour smiles as she holds a sign on the grounds of the Statehouse in Topeka, Kan. Lortscher, a Sarah Palin look-alike, says, “I can’t even go into a McDonald’s without people yelling at me, ‘Hey, Sarah. "

In this April 2, 2010 photo, Gail Lortscher, Manhattan, Kan., a participant in the Tea Party Express national bus tour smiles as she holds a sign on the grounds of the Statehouse in Topeka, Kan. Lortscher, a Sarah Palin look-alike, says, “I can’t even go into a McDonald’s without people yelling at me, ‘Hey, Sarah. "

— A Sarah Palin lookalike from Kansas has been getting a lot of stares since the 2008 election.

Manhattan resident Gail Lortscher says she’d be rich if she had a nickel for every time she’s been photographed or asked for an autograph.

Friends have dubbed Lortscher “Sarah of the Flint Hills.” She even plays up her resemblance to the former Alaska governor by dressing the part.

Lortscher is a Republican and has attended three tea party events, including one last week in Topeka. She says she’s decided that maybe she can help by being Palin’s proxy in Kansas.

Lortscher says she can’t even go into a McDonald’s restaurant without people yelling at her, “Hey Sarah.”

I thought this might be a story about Tina Fey.

@Tom, Oddly enough I agree with both of your posts above, especially your 0629.

She looks like someone who wants to look like Sarah Palin.

I know Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin is a good friend of mine......and you ma'am are no Sarah Palin. (the above was disingenuous like democrat Lloyd Benson's reference to JFK in a VP debate years back - he didn't know JFK either, but the press bought it and so did the American people)

Yep. A comparison picture would have been nice.

Thanks for clearing that up about Bentsen, Prune. Are you now spamming every forum with this (unverified) bombshell?

yes, remember: there actually is a Mr. Pelosi! married to that.

Prune is right about Lloyd Blandson.

and again we see how the left is so crazy and threatened by Sarah Palin. A hot babe who can handle a rifle well, dress a moose, run a state and negotiate a huge natural gas deal, commercial fish, and raise kids, man that's one fine babe.
not to mention her looks, because of course that would be objectifying her, something the double standard allows the left to do all the time.

yes Tom, Raquel Welch is definitely a conservative. now watch for the same loons on the left to start attacking her who attack/belittle Sarah Palin. was great to see her on O'reilly!

"and again we see how the left is so crazy and threatened by Sarah Palin."

You keep saying this in the hope that it becomes true.

Also, that part about running a state, she quit that job before it was finished.

Nice to see the baggers showing their compassion for humanity by bashing women and how they look. We all know that being in government is all about how somebody looks. Brilliant, baggers, brilliant.

bearded, yes, we are "threatened" by the people who actually think Palin is qualified for any national position. Any time a mass of individuals support an unintelligent person for public office (think George W. Bush) it is a threat against what makes America great. As fellow Americans we are indeed "threatened" by the mass of the least intelligent among us who look up to the great intellect of Dame Sarah.

On any level by which someone should be considered for national office -- intelligence, an understanding of the issues and a clear idea on how best to handle them, not a quitter -- Palin falls far, far short of being a threat. We are "threatened," however, by those who support the "hot chick" over supporting someone of substance. It is the equivalent of voting for the person you want to have a beer with, and as we saw with Bush, that is a threat to our country. So in this way, what Palin represents is the actual threat.

keith, she quit because she was lameduck, and you leftist nuts were costing her relatively small state's finances many millions of dollars with frivolous ethics charges.
and yes, comments here show what I described: she elicits an aweful lot of reaction from you leftist loonies.
keith, your own attempt at smear shows that too.

Bea, while employing the usual sexual vulgarity to put down average american citizens and impuning them too, says: bearded, yes, we are "threatened" by the people who actually think Palin is qualified for any national position. Any time a mass of individuals support an unintelligent person for public office (think George W. Bush) it is a threat against what makes America great. As fellow Americans we are indeed "threatened" by the mass of the least intelligent among us who look up to the great intellect of Dame Sarah.

---"least intelligent?" a Gallup survey showed that tea party supporters [note the lack of sexual vulgarity] were more likely to be better educated, higher income than most americans. also, inicated that "republicans" were not the majority of tea party supporters.

apparently objectifying is perfectly fine when you are an elitist leftist loonie, presuming yourself smarter because of your beliefs! that's the real beginning of ignorance.

and Bea, I'd happily set my educational attainment against yours any day babe.
