Republican nobody Sarah Palin isn't really a nobody at all, it has been revealed. For Sarah is, in real life, none other than the revered former writer from TheSpoof.com, Gnarly Erik!
'Erik', who wrote some 9081 stories for TheSpoof.com, before he deleted them in a blind rage last year, is the alter-ego of the woman who, despite having had no experience in leadership on a large scale, may end up having to lead on the largest scale, if anything happens to Senator John McCain, should he become President in November.
Hailing from Alaska, 'Erik' got a bit annoyed last year, and reverted to sending pointless letters to local rags and nursing journals, and griping about non-issues in 'his' community, rather than waste any more time posting useless stories to TheSpoof.
Gnarled with her lack of success, 'Erik', or rather Palin, has now come out of the cupboard as herself, and has ditched the alter-ego and chillblains in favour of the sexy, empty-head that currently stands in Mr McCain's shadow in warmer climates.
Palin said yesterday:
"It's true I was once a bit gnarly, but I'm over it now."
Alaska is big and cold.
