Sarah Palin Impersonator Crashes 2012 CPAC (PHOTO)

A convincing Sarah Palin impersonator, sitting in the Woodley Park Noodes & Co. near the hotel hosting the Conservative Political Action Conference, said she will not endorse Newt Gingrich during Sarah Palin's speech at CPAC on Saturday -- because, in fact, she is not (as reporters learned afterward) Sarah Palin.

The woman, who calls herself "the world's premier Sarah Palin impressionist," winked and used a folksy voice while discussing the need for the political process to work its course before she endorsed. "It's cold here in Washington!" she said, then stammering, "And Alaska."
