MANCHESTER, N.H. - RuPaul is giving it a twirl and walking the political catwalk to disprove once and for all that he’s not presidential candidate Ron Paul.

The confusion started four years ago when the actor, model and drag queen was mistaken for libertarian-leaning presidential candidate Ron Paul, 76.

Despite the obvious physical contrasts and their 25-year age difference, the star of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” was peppered with questions mostly concerning her presidential platform. “They get confused when I tell them that my platform is six inches and is covered in rhinestones,”  a flabbergasted RuPaul, 51, said.

His mission is simple. He’s in New Hampshire to have his picture taken with the Texas congressman so America can once and for all not confuse the two, although he concedes that his pussycat wig and high heels do make a fierce political statement.

“Our founding fathers wore wigs, did you ever think about that,” said the performer who was born in San Diego as RuPaul Andre Charles.

The drag queen diva says he’s best suited to serve America by finding its next drag queen superstar.

When asked what Ron Paul’s drag name would be, RuPaul quickly retorted “RuPaul.”
