We made a joke along these lines and then deleted it in the interests of succinctness but then L found a different parallel: the Palins come from Twin Peaks. They point out that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin looks just like the doomed Maddy Ferguson! Leo Johnson, Levi Johnston. Young Bristol Palin's diary surely contains an entry from some months ago that concludes "nervous about meeting 'J' tonight," right? And then these terrible conspiracies and ominous hints of something dark and seedy just beneath the perfect exterior of Real America. The soapier the story of the Palins gets, the more worried we become for the young woman of Wasilla, Alaska. Stay out of the woods! THE OWLS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM.
