Who is Patsy Gilbert?
Truly great impersonators have more than just “the look,” they also have the uncanny ability to embody the heart and soul of the person they are imitating. That’s what makes Patsy Gilbert so spectacular in her presentation of political luminary Governor Sarah Palin.
Like the celebrated vice-presidential candidate, both were pageant queens and athletic team captains. Similarly, Patsy cut her teeth in broadcast journalism—developing a homespun honesty on both sides of the camera. They are both runners and have gun-totin' First-Dude types who love to hunt and fish. While Palin relished being a Hockey Mom, Gilbert loved her real-life role as Soccer Mom. Even more remarkably, like Sarah, Patsy and her husband were blessed with a loving Down’s Syndrome child.
