RuPaul’s Drag Race is coming back to Logo, the network announced yesterday, for its second season on Feb. 1 at 9 p.m. Woot! To celebrate that news (or maybe just for a random bit of fun) Logo released the book cover at left of the famous drag host doing her best — and honestly, totally awesome! — Sarah Palin. LOVE! RuPaul really hit the mark with this one, from the cheesy red jacket to the signature eyewear, she makes a great version of the former Vice Presidential candidate and current media tour-er. According to the press release Logo sent along with the photo, Ru is calling this incarnation of herself “RuPalin.” J’adore that. Obsessed with that. Living for that currently. (And don’t worry, we have a call into Palin’s people to see if she has a response to RuPaul’s drag incarnation of her.)
As if changing the title of Palin’s book from Going Rogue to, ahem, Going Vogue weren’t enough, the tagline and whatnot that Ru used at the bottom really gets me. Especially the “No Experience Required” line. I mean, this is exactly what drag is all about – taking ridiculata to the next level!
Anyway, just thought I’d share. What do you think of “RuPalin”? Is the whole making-fun-of-Sarah Palin thing overplayed? Are you dying for the premiere of Drag Race’s second season?
