steam-powered politicians

As I sit here at Jitters' Cafe in Shadyside after an arduous day of apartment-hunting, my fellow coffee drinkers are watching the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  I don't care much for the show, or TV in general, but seeing Bristol Palin descend the stairs at the introduction of the show's dancers for the next several weeks reminds me of alter-egos. Like mother, like daughter, I suppose.

Why?

Because of Sarah Palin's secret life as a steampunk heroine, as told in Mile High Comic's new comic book:  Steampunk Palin:
Energy catastrophe has struck worldwide! Massive oil spills, nuclear meltdowns and more leave us desperate for viable energy sources to rebuild global society and technology. Inspired by a little tea party, Sarah Palin hits upon the answer: steam power! She begins the 'Steam Initiative', touting geothermal energy as the cure for what ails ya. The heads of Big Oil and Nuclear Power are less than happy with this trend, and they send their agents to do in the Rogue Republican. Luckily, she comes prepared with a set of steam-powered armor! (Standard equipment, don'cha know.)
Who knew?
