Sarah Palin’s Memoir, ‘Going Rogue,’ expected November 17

September 29, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Playing on the maverick image she is trying so hard to convey, former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin has named her apparently highly anticipated book, ‘Going Rogue: An American Life.’ Palin mischievously embraced the phrase “going rogue” at the end of her troubled campaign for vice president on the ticket headed by Sen. John McCain,  Since stepping down as governor, Palin has been in huge demand as a speaker, and continues to harvest flocks of media attention. To strike while the iron is hot, ‘Going Rogue’, said to be 400 pages will have a huge first printing of 1.5 million copies, and has been moved up from it’s original spring release, to Nov. 17, for right-thinking Christmas shoppers. “Going Rogue” will not be available as an e-book until Dec. 26, the day after Christmas however to make sure the printed copies do well first.

Jonathan Burnham, Palin’s publisher at Harper, called the fall “the best possible time for a major book of this kind.”  Describing the book, Burnham said: “Governor Palin has been unbelievably conscientious and hands-on at every stage, investing herself deeply and passionately in this project. “It’s her words, her life, and it’s all there in full and fascinating detail.”

Harper by the way is part of HarperCollins, a publishing firm owned by News Corp., the media empire of magnate Rupert Murdoch which also includes the Fox News Channel and the New York Post.  Palin’s book was announced just four months ago, so the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee is a very fast writer, or perhaps has a few ghostwriters helping out.  The official line though is that after Palin left office on July 26, she took her family to the home of her collaborator, Lynn Vincent in San Diego, and worked on the book for several weeks, I guess proving she can finish some projects she starts.

    Alaska was a pretty corrupt system until Palin stepped in. Her reforms took on entrenched politicians (inc. Republicans), a mafioso-style union boss, and Big Oil.

    Wouldn’t it have been nice if Obama had been principled and brave enough to confront the corrupt Chicago Democratic Machine? Or shady political operators like Tony Rezko? Racist preachers? Instead of doing business with every last one of them?

    IMO people could end up voting for the Gipper-in-Heels in droves- they’ll surely being looking for some such antidote to the Bolshevik con-artist who’s taking a wrecking-ball to this society now.

    Small wonder then that the far-left moonbats -along with Team Obama’s David Plouffe’s internet squad- are out to destroy her.

    Go get em ‘Cuda- you’re one tough lady… and there’s a lot of us behind you.

    As a women, I would be interested to read it as she is a strong part of our country and is a strong women with strong morals and integrity and a Christian as I am. She is a mother of many children and has been able to be successful at that and other things…this is commendable, if you ask me…

    Palin is about as opposite of “Rogue” as one can get. Her mind has no capacity for original or independent thought. She just parrots what, to her total lack of education and even native intelligence, makes sense to her. And what makes sense to her seems completely political and devoid of insight. She does not notice that she and her family are a joke. Her continuance in the public eye is pure entertainment, like “Dumb and Dumber”. Those that are her supporters really need to have their heads examined because they are definitely not on straight.
