Contestant: Sarah Palin
Pageant: Miss Alaska 1984

All right, if an alien compared Palin's performance with the flute to the talents of other pageant contestants across the U.S., nothing would seem amiss. But how weird is the whole spectacle when you look back on Palin circa 1984 after having known the disaster that is Palin circa 2013? At the very least, it came as a surprise to us that the she-devil has any talent besides babbling nonsense. Though the tune does sound a little...deranged?
