Sarah Palin Coincidentally Goes to Iowa on 'The Colbert Report' (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert - Sarah PalinApparently, you can't have a party (or even a Republican party debate) without Sarah Palin appearing somewhere in the immediate vicinity. The former governor of Alaska announced that she would be visiting the Iowa State Fair this weekend, "coincidentally" just thirty miles away from the current Republican debates currently being held in Ames.

This startling case of kismet certainly wasn't lost on Stephen Colbert on last night's 'Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11.30PM ET on Comedy Central), who suspected that this wasn't all about the funnel cake (invented by Thomas Edison, don't you know?).

"This is the same kind of coincidence that took her bus tour to New Hampshire on the day Mitt Romney declared his candidacy," Colbert wryly observed. "Apparently, Sarah Palin's version of the Bat-signal is anyone else's spotlight."

The last time the Sarah Palin Bus Tour was on the road to New Hampshire, the bus ran off the road and Sarah Palin got stuck on Paul Revere's Ride where (according to Sarah Palin) Paul Revere "Warned the British that the British are coming." Two months later, Sarah Palin finally arrives involved in "Courage, New Hampshire." With any luck, Sarah Palin may arrive in Iowa with "Courage, Iowa" and to late to present a Straw Poll. Sarah Palin may make the news in new methodologies, as surviving a harrowing experience with a wild animal native to the forest. The wild animal, an Opossum playing dead, has gotten within a falling forward distance of Sarah Palin. She (Sarah Palin) feeling threatened, is overcome with hysterics and is saved by some heroic woodsmen out picking-up firewood for a Pit Bar-B-Que. The Opossum is unharmed and is relocated back into the wild forest, approximately 50 feet away and near the the river, 'Trickling Creek.' Wow! That is dull excitment!!
