'RuPaul's Drag Race': RuPaul announces season 2 premiere as 'RuPalin'!

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?

  • edita

    oh isnt she/he just so clever? making fun of palin? how fresh!

    • Jake

      oh, please.. get over yourself. Making fun of stooopid Sarah Palin and her conservative, republican ilk will never get old.

      • edita

        its a boring, predictable way to go. and the people who do it think their just the height of funny, when the jokes got stale some time ago.

      • crispy

        Why is it always conservatives who don’t know how to properly use there, their, and they’re?

      • edita

        haha crispy you got me..and i’m not conservative. just sick of palin and palin jokes!

      • Jake

        Perhaps the jokes got stale for you but don’t pretend to speak for the rest of us who can obviously think for ourselves. Where exactly did RuPaul say he was the height of funny? Opinions on what is or isn’t funny is subjective, just as it is with most forms of expression and from the looks of it, you’re in the minority.

      • Jake

        Opinions *are* subjective… damn, stupid DOES rub off! *wink*

      • edita

        but jake i never said i was speaking for anyone but myself. and so what if i’m in the minority? i can still voice my subjective opinion just like the majority can.

      • Jake

        edita, when you write: “its a boring, predictable way to go. and the people who do it think their just the height of funny, when the jokes got stale some time ago.” it comes accross as definitive, particularly when you delve into commenting on those making the jokes and then claiming that it got ‘stale long ago’. It’s always best to clarify by stating “in my opinion” or to say, before making a comment that expands on your opinion with ‘to me’. For example, “to me, the joke got stale long ago”.

    Lol :) that is one awesome parody of SP. I think Rupalin is looks better on her cover then SP.

  • Jason
