In a bombshell revelation today, it has been revealed that Palin's mom is in fact the nine year Ex Prime Minister of New Zealand, Ms. Helen Clark.
The two women, who are remarkably similar in appearance and dress were until recently unaware of the link.
When questioned by our reporter, Palin, who was still in shock, said that she always believed her "real" mom was out there somewhere beyond her bedroom window, and that she was looking forward to meeting Ms. Clark and perhaps "shootin' a few critters and drilling for oil in the wilderness".
When asked if she knew anything about New Zealand, Palin replied. "Sure, it's just over there somewhere, by Russia probably, they have those cute Eskimo people, what language do they speak?"
When contacted, Clark, 58, expressed surprise, but conceded that it was possible, as at one time she had a liason with a Canadin mountie, followed by "a very vague nine months in a hut in Alaska where we smoked a lot of Bearshit and inhaled a lot of skunk, anything could and probably did, happen but I honestly can't remember" Added Clark, "I must be off now, I have a country to run you know" In a recent development and due entirely to this story, Helen Clark has been replaced by John Key, rumoured to be the secret love child of Oliver Hardy
