Snooki And Sarah Palin: One And The Same Person?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Television personality Donny Deutsch says former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is so popular because she and `Jersey Shore` reality star Nicole `Snooki` Polizzi are one and the same."

I`d wish I had been the first one to make that telling comparison, Deutsch is spot on!

Physically they don`t bear much resemblance to each other, other than that they are both cartoonish-looking. Snooki has her trademark poof hairdo and her orange face, and Palin has her trademark glasses and her deer-caught-in-the-headlights stare.

Snooki is the star of the "Jersey Shore" reality show, and Palin is the star of "Sarah Palin`s Alaska" reality show. Snooki`s fans tune in to watch her get roaring drunk and say outrageous things, and Palin`s devotees tune in to watch her kill animals and make ridiculous statements.

Both of these female icons have written books, Snooki wrote a novel, and Palin wrote an autobiography that read like a novel. Of course they both hired ghostwriters.

I can see Snooki following Palin`s lead and entering the political realm. If Snooki washes the fake tan from her face and flattens her poof hairdo a couple of feet, she will broaden her base.

Who would you prefer as President of the United States: Snooki or Sarah Palin?
