No Sarah, no Problem! Keynote Stripper Pinch-Hits

Porn star Lisa Ann and Sarah Palin

Tough to tell: Porn star Lisa Ann is on the left, I think, and Sarah Palin on the far right — as usual!

A controversy leading to the kickoff of the Republican National Convention today in Tampa was whether 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin would deliver a keynote speech.

Not only won’t Palin speak, she won’t be anywhere near Florida. She’s stumping for candidates in Arizona.

The poor man’s Palin, however, warmed up the crowd — in the flesh!

Porn starlet Lisa Ann — who’s made a career playing the former governor of Alaska in hardcore videos — performed at Tampa’s Thee DollHouse strip club over the weekend.

Ann, 40, is best known for playing Palin in Who’s Nailin’ Paylin? Ann started assuming her (fully nude) positions on the stage of the mammary Mecca Friday and Saturday night.

As usual, she started in a dark, extra-tight business suit and eyeglasses — stuff she shed by the first song’s end!
