Tina Fey, there’s another Palin impersonator?!!?

A woman standing behind GOP presidential candidate John McCain at his rally in Cedar Falls Sunday got some airplay over the past few days, as the woman can be seen saying, "Thank you," when McCain praises his running mate, Sarah Palin.

Here's the video, referenced on The Rachel Maddow Show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bkqa7IaF6rE

The following was reported by IowaPolitics.com in their daily email to subscribers (but I cannot find a link to this information on its website): An Iowa woman impersonating Sarah Palin apparently made her way on stage at Republican presidential candidate John McCain's rally in Cedar Falls on Sunday and stood right behind McCain as he gave his speech, reacting to the speech like she was the real Palin.    

The woman has been identified as Eva Andersen, a music major at the University of Northern Iowa and a former student at Center Point-Urbana High School who was featured in this summer's production of High School Musical by Theatre Cedar Rapids. 

UPDATE:  James Q. Lynch of The Cedar Rapids Gazette has the full story.
