Wonkette Digs Up What Looks Like Palin's Personal Facebook Page--Apparently She "Likes" Herself

The manuscript of an as-yet unpublished tell-all memoir by a Sarah Palin aide named Frank Bailey is circulating. The memoir, unsurprisingly, has much unflattering material in it about Conservative Queen of Mean, including, as the Anchorage Daily reports, "charges that Palin broke state election law in her 2006 gubernatorial campaign and was consumed by petty grievances up until she resigned."

But a small, surprising and hilarious development from the leaked memoir may arise from the sleuthing done by the good folks over at Wonkette, who sifted through the hundred of pages of the manuscript.

In their own words:

... Frank Bailey and his co-authors excerpt a bunch of Sarah Palin’s e-mails, and on one page, they mistakenly left uncensored what Bailey presents as Palin’s recent (likely current, even) e-mail address. We put this thing into Facebook, and, what do you know, it appears the snowbilly grifter has her very own personal account! Besides keeping in touch with her father, what does Palin use the Facebook for? Saying “amen” to her own Facebook fan page missives, in the guise of a mere commoner. Say hello to “Lou Sarah,” liker of Bristol Palin Dancing With the Stars photos.


Indeed, as both Wonkette and Gawker run down, there's compelling evidence that this small facebook page is an avatar for Palin herself--revealing insider connections and doing her best to bolster her own image. She also posts obsessively on her daughter's page.

Here is Alternet's own screen grab of this page that appears to be Palin's "sock-puppet page."
