But the Alaskan pol has achieved one measure of fame – someone’s written an opera about her.

“Say It Ain’t So, Joe,” a presentation by Guerilla Opera, opens Saturday at Boston Conservatory’s Zack Box Theater. The work is composer Curtis Hughes’ musical take on America’s favorite moose-hunting winker, you betcha. It focuses on that contentious – and sometimes comical – debate from October 2008 between Palin and Joe Biden, though the show also includes cameos from Hillary Clinton, Gwen Ifill, Diane Sawyer and, of course, the right-wing’s favorite Everyman, Joe the Plumber.

“Mrs. Palin is an inspiration to working mothers everywhere because she bailed on her job right before Fourth of July weekend,” Fey said in her acceptance speech. “You are living my dream. Thank you, Mrs. Palin!”
