This Associated Press photo is the kind sure to cause many doubletakes. What the heck is Sarah Palin doing at a phone banking operation for her nemesis Sen. Lisa Murkowski?

Well, actually it's not Palin. And, no, it's not Tina Fey. The AP identifies the Murkowski volunteer as Jan Cox. In profile, she definitely resembles Mama Grizzly #1. Palin, of course, supports the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate seat, Joe Miller.

He's running against Murkowski, who he defeated in the Republican primary but who remains in the race as a write-in candidate, and Democrat Scott McAdams, former mayor of Sitka, Alaska.
