from www.nydailynews.com – Sarah Palin may not be bringing her brand of political red meat to the GOP convention this month, but a willing surrogate is ready to step into her spike-heeled shoes.
Lisa Ann, star of the political porn flick “Who’s Nailin’ Paylin?” has been getting lots of exposure since the news broke she will be bringing her Palin look-alike pole act to The Dollhouse strip club in Tampa for the GOP convention.
“I feel like I’m her rep at this point,” Ann joked in an interview with GQ magazine.
“Like, ‘Hey, don’t worry, I’m your double. Just stay at home and relax with your family. I’ll take care of this convention thing.’”
She said the most unusual thing about this act is that men want her to get back into her clothes once it’s over.
“I’ll put my suit back on after the show because a lot of the guys want pictures with me in the suit so they can put it on their Facebook or whatever they choose,” Ann told GQ.
“Because I’m dressed for once! It’s really funny that they want the picture of me dressed because, of course, that’s never happened to me before, except when you’re on the street.”
The real Palin confirmed Sunday that she won’t be speaking at the Republican convention, ending weeks of speculation.
“Everything I said at the 2008 convention about then-candidate Obama still stands today,” she told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “This year is a good opportunity for other voices to speak at the convention and I’m excited to hear them.”
It wasn’t clear from the statement whether Palin had turned down an offer or was never officially invited to speak at the Tampa event.
Palin also didn’t say if she planned to skip the event altogther, but Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus suggested she wouldn’t be there in a statement to Buzzfeed.
“Gov. Palin has been a force in our party and while I am disappointed she won’t be in Tampa I know she will continue to be actively engaged in replacing Barack Obama,” he said.
Ann, meanwhile, said she’s looking forward to the big business she hears political conventions bring to local strip clubs.
“I know this from girls who travel,” she said.
“They’ve told me about the conventions — supposedly it gets really crowded. There are a lot of people with a lot of money there. I definitely think there’s going to be a lot of people down there this year because even Republicans have come in to see me and said, ‘you know, we think this is hilarious.’ It’s just light humor, after all.”
