Sarah Palin is "just like us", but wants to be more like Queen Elizabeth II

Sarah Palin is depicted on some medallions:

This 1 oz. gold medallion honors Alaska's Sarah Palin. As Alaska's first woman Governor, she had a reputation of being against "business as usual". She was thrust into the national spotlight when she was chosen to be John McCain's vice presidential running mate. A donation from the sale of these medallions will be made to Wounded Warrior Project, helping seriously injured service members. The price for this 1 oz. pure gold medallion is $400.00 over the market price of gold, please call for quote. Order today before gold rises any further.

Another very famous woman also has her likeness on gold coins:

B.U. British Sovereign "Elizabeth II" Gold Coins $549.95

Although no portion of the gold sovereign sales goes to charity, the Queen is Patron of more than 620 charities and organisations.

The protocol when meeting Queen Elizabeth II:

Only shake the queen's hand if she offers it to you first. If you are wearing gloves, do not remove them.

Do not begin a conversation with the queen. Instead, wait until she starts speaking to you.

Hairdresser Rhonda Halliday had a bizarre experience when she was summoned to look after Sarah Palin's hair:

After being ushered to a room on the 15th floor and given some instructions (don't talk to Palin unless she talks first) she did Palin's hair while the former Alaska governor chatted with her family.

Rumour has it that Queen Elizabeth II doesn't carry money in her purse, apart from Sundays:

The Queen carries a comb, a handkerchief, a small gold compact, and a tube of lipstick in her handbag. The Queen does carry money on Sundays--a folded note of unknown denomination which she discreetly places in the collection plate.

Queen Sarah doesn't appear to have cash in her purse either:

Halliday was the last one out of the room because she had to put her equipment away, then watched as they all drove off without anyone mentioning payment or a tip, which is common when the hairdresser travels to the client for the appointment.

A commenter remarked that Sarah Palin had done something similar in Anchorage:

"Just like when she worked downtown Anchorage. She would go for her fancy coffees, get a few extras for her buddies, and then tell the coffee girls she did not have her purse and would walk out. She did this consistently. Palin pays for NOTHING. Grifter."

I wouldn't say Her Majesty the Queen (the real one) is a grifter. Her staff make sure any bills incurred are paid immediately, so the queen herself doesn't have to fish for money out of her purse.

Sarah Palin needs to take a good look at herself and see that she's no queen, just a spoiled celebrity. She could also instruct her staff to pay any bills promptly, so hard working Americans are not left waiting for their money in these difficult times...

Her fans think she's accessible and just like them:

"Please notice that Sarah is not afraid to reach out and touch the American people when she meets them. In fact, it's rarely just a quick shake of the hand. More often she holds the person's hand throughout the time she speaks with them, with a firm grip with a warm hand as she ... looks them straight in the eye and makes even the most shy open up in the glow of her personality. Just one more great attribute of this great person. BTW: I'll never wash that hand again!!!"

"I love your book, Sarah....feel like I know you...what a normal family and normal life...just like are truly an inspiration to all women..."

How many of them fail to pay their bills, travel in a private luxury jet, build an enormous house and expect people not to talk to them unless they're addressed first?

Sarah Palin's fans are very misguided and naive. She's a celebrity who thinks she's entitled to be treated with deference, who still carries the title of governor after quitting office after only half a term. Sarah Palin travels with her family to reinforce the idea that she's "one of them". The children are mere props and the adults are just as dishonest as queen Sarah.

I'm not pro-monarchy, but Queen Elizabeth II has centuries of tradition and decades of hard work behind her. She is not a "nouveau riche" wannabe from the Valley pretending to be like her own supporters to make them part with their hard earned money for her own benefit.
