Sarah Palin will found a religion

Look at Joseph Smith, L Ron Hubbard, Mary Baker Eddy, Claude Vorilhon, Elizabeth Clare Prophet...even Hitler*.  The list goes on.  All charismatic figures without much formal education who founded quasi-religious cults.  All wrote voluminously - many about aliens and the like.

Wait...  Palin hasn't written anything.  Ok.  Never mind.

*One could argue convincingly that Nazism was indeed a religion.  See Stern, The Politics of Cultural Despair.
