The woman at John McCain’s rally in Cedar Falls who worked her way through the crowd and stood on stage, pretending to be Sarah Palin, has produced a rap video. University of Northern Iowa sophomore Eva Anderson wore glasses, styled her hair like Palin and stood right behind McCain at his rally on the U.N.I. campus. She mouthed "thank you" for the cameras when McCain praised his running mate.
Calling herself "EvaDivaSuperstar," the 19-year-old has produced a rap video. "Hey, I’ve got something to say to all you Palin impersonators like Tina Fey," Anderson says. "You see us in ones and twos and threes. It’s a Palin epidemic. It’s a Palin disease. There’s a lot of fakes. Yea, I’m keepin’ tally — so let’s see you show your face at a political rally."
Anderson’s mugging for the cameras at the McCain rally in Cedar Falls was replayed over and over on the Internet and on cable news programs last week. Her rap video lasts a little longer than two minutes — perhaps expanding the U.N.I. student’s 15 minutes of fame.
"So listen up cuz I’m going to preach. I even took a class on political speech. Stand back, yo, cuz I’m gonna crush ya. I’m the next best thing cuz from my house I see Russia," EvaDivaSuperstar raps. Go to www.radioiowa.com to watch EvaDiva’s Palin rap.
Anderson graduated from Center Point-Urbana High School and played the lead in last summer’s "High School Musical" production at Theatre Cedar Rapids. She’s majoring in music at U.N.I. The real Palin, by the way, campaigned in Dubuque this afternoon
