Just in time for holiday shopping: Sarah Palin's memoir

The Los Angeles Times reports that Sarah Palin's memoir, entitled Going Rogue: An American Life, has been fast-tracked and will be released on Nov. 17 - just in time for holiday shoppers.


Originally the book was set for a spring release date. Publisher Harper will print 1.5 million copies, reports the Times - the same number as the early fall's big political seller, Ted Kennedy's True Compass (published by Twelve).

From the Times' Top of the Ticket:

"Harper publisher Jonathan Burnham says the ex-governor obviously invested herself deeply -- and also quite quickly -- in penning the 400-page volume and it contains "fascinating details."

Some of which, no doubt, will not be so fascinating to some within the failed campaign camp of Arizona Sen. John McCain, who picked her as the first GOP female on a presidential ticket in an obvious bid for the Arctic vote."

I wish they would release this unedited.


Is it going to be translated into English?

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…


As a mother, hearing the father of her daughter's baby tell it, and others who knew her well: she is nothing what she appeared: not kind, not moral and certainly not with the upstanding christian values she portrayed. She clearly was not well-read, thoughtful, or qualified to maybe be President. That she is agressive and can succeed is obvious, but hardly enough to impress me.


Talk about a lump of coal in your Christmas stocking.


Sarah Palin is a great American success story. Unfortunately the left wing haters will try to diminish her achievments.

Another source of toilet paper ... rough, but useful!

Reaganite Republican

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 far-left moonbats -along with Team Obama’s David Plouffe internet-control squad- are out to destroy her. The fact that she's been highly successful in life while rejecting liberal feminism explains the extra dose of venom in the attacks-

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



You Leftys just keep on trashing anyone that has an argument to you drivel. It is going to result in a changing of the guard. Perhaps you should get your news from somewhere else than a Katie Couric snippet between the Simpsons and Family Guy. Things are changing- and not in the BananaBama way either.

I've respectfully read all the above comments. And I'm left with: I'm with you, Patrick!


We ordered 2. It is going to be a collector's item. I like her because she is a woman like me and my daughters! Whomever would think that the Progressives hate woman so much! Yet they have all been born.

can't fight this feeling anymore

Does that mean you'd like Paris Hilton as a candidate? She's a woman like you and your daughters. Just curious.


Just to get back to the publishing angle for a moment: with a 1.5 million first printing - which is pretty significant - it's unlikely that the book will become a collector's item.


People can admire whoever they want. But that doesn't mean that person can write a book (or have a book ghost written for them) that has anything interesting in it. NOW Sarah Palin has done more than Miley Cyrus but I think she is not quite at the stage where there is enough substance to really be interesting for an entire memoir. NOW if she were writing a day to day diary of the Presidential campaign, warts and all, totally honest? Might be interesting.


She did more than Miley Cyrus? How so? She quit her post. She didn't become vice president. She didn't succeed in marrying off her trampy daughter to the dumbass who knocked her up like she wanted to.
At least Miley has and is succeeding at HER chosen career. And is twice as bright.


She was the elected mayor, the governor of a STATE and a major party VP candidate. All are accomplishments above any pop star (although our society would have you think otherwise). And an honest campaign book by Spiro Agnew would have been interesting too.It isn't praising her to say THAT. I think it is funny and interesting that she generates inaccurate "she's just like ME" comments and undeserved (I mean did she run over YOUR dog?) "I hate her with a poisonous bile that knows no bounds" comments.

She ran out on a job that was over her head and says dumb things on TV. That describes half the radio and TV talk show hosts in the country.
