A trio of Sarah Palin lookalikes, along with a Bristol Palin lookalike, posed at the corner of Castro and Market in San Francisco yesterday.

The younger of the two female Palins seen here had issued a public call for a mass gathering of Palin lookalikes for Halloween — but only two other Palins showed up (along with 25 disappointed media members). A complete washout!

Even so, I predict that “Sarah Palin” will be the popular costume for this year’s Halloween.

Politically speaking, whatever the outcome of the election, I think the Democrats’ biggest mistake this campaign was to keep Palin in the headlines for the last two months. She now is easily the most famous woman in America. And name recognition leads to popularity, which leads to votes — no matter what the reason for your fame. If they had simply ignored her, the McCain ticket would have faded into obscurity. As they say: All publicity is good publicity!

There was actually one other participant: A guy dressed as a moose showed up, so the Palins could hunt him. But he was too emabarrassed to stand with the lookalikes, so instead he hovered at the back of the crowd.

    Wonder what kept other Palin lookalikes from tunring up …
    Can’t have been that Palin-puppet hanging in a noose, can it?

    Agree that the dems have kept Palin n the news – which also meant that lots of people were interested in going to see for themselves – and were enthused by what they saw and heard.

    I was hoping to get over to West Hollywood tonight for the big Halloween bash, I’m guessing there will be hundreds of Palin-drag queens on the streets.

    I hope I can make it before the crowds, otherwise the parking situation is impossible.

    I was going to show up dressed like Palin, but I had to WORK! Don’t these people have jobs?

    Is mental instability a prerequisite to living in San Fran?

    i disagree with your take. the first rule of the communists is to demonize their enemies, following Goebbels. as we have seen over the last 8 years, it works. only those of the most exceptional mind and character can withstand the onslaught. Palin has authentic character but she’s not nearly articulate enough to turn the tide.
