Sarah Palin Xbox: The Replica

Bummed that the auction for a Sarah Palin-autographed Xbox has been taken down from eBay after a bid was submitted for the $1.1 million asking price? Now you can own the replica: an eBay user is selling another Xbox, with a fake autograph, for $1,100. The replica "has been painstakingly recrafted using:
    * Detailed photographs of the original signed Xbox 360
    * Imagery of Palin's signature on the infamous "helicopter-wolf-hunting" bill from 2003," according to the seller.

UPDATE: The original auction is back on! According to eBay, it was taken down by mistake (and had nothing to do with the anonymous bid placed at $1.1 million). Hope returns for anyone interested in bidding. Effects on the market value of a replica have yet to be determined.
