Beyond Tina Fey: The Sarah Palin Look-Alike Gallery
Tonight’s vice-presidential debate will be the first opportunity for American TV viewers to spend quality time with Republican nominee Sarah Palin since she accepted the nomination a month ago.

How else to explain the rapture that greeted Tina Fey’s impersonation on Saturday Night Live?
Looking for Palin doppelgangers has become a minor pop-culture phenomenon, with Web surfers collected separated-at-birth pairings of the candidate and, well, any slightly famous person with a beehive and glasses.
