This holiday season the internet and bookstores will be overloaded in Sarah Palin books and novelty items. Not only is Sarah’s ghostwritten autobiography coming out November 17th but many other books and various items will be available for holiday shoppers to choose from. Question is what will we learn about Sarah Palin.
Until then, you can spend your holiday dollars trying to look like Sarah Palin for Halloween. Hate her or love her Palin seems to be a big Halloween item this year. The Sarah Palin mask is especially big this year.
Another book coming out November 17th is ORbooks Going Rouge: Sarah Palin An American Nightmare, compiled by Richard Kim and Betsy Reed, two top editors of the left-leaning weekly The Nation, and includes essays by Nation regulars like Katrina vanden Heuvel, Naomi Klein, and Katha Pollitt. Other contributors are Jeanne Devon of the Alaskan blog The Mudflats, Max Blumenthal, Shannyn Moore, Linda Hirshman, Naomi Klein, Dahlia Lithwick, Amanda Marcotte and many others. This will be a very enjoyable book.
According to its website it’s the first release from OR Books, a fledgling outfit founded earlier this year by publishing veterans John Oakes and Colin Robinson that “embraces progressive change in politics, culture and the way we do business”.
On that very same day you can pick up a copy of a kid’s version of Going Rouge, so no the little ones won’t be left out of the fun.
Also expected out soon is the book Renegade: Sarah Palin’s Hatchet Man by one of Sarah’s former aides Frank Bailey known for. Frank and a co-author claim the book will be “accurate, factual and very documented.” She stated the book will tell Bailey’s “side of the story.”
Bailey became notorious in Alaska during the Troopergate scandal. He was in the thick of the scandal before most of the nation had ever heard of Sarah Palin.
Along with his deleted emails and his recorded phone call released during the Troopergate scandal, which showed him pressuring a State Trooper officer to help get Palin’s former brother-in-law fired, his behavior raised questions about just how much the governor knew about Bailey’s dirty work.
Palin denied ever knowing about the phone call and called Bailey’s action “out of bounds” and “wrong,” even though Bailey told the Trooper he was calling on behalf of both the governor and her husband. Palin punished Bailey with a two month paid leave.
According to the co-author, the title of the book was inspired by a blog written by Andrew Halco, former State Representative and one of Palin’s opponents in the Governor’s race where he labeled Bailey the governor’s hatchet man.
And writer Geoffrey Dunn will be coming out with his book soon, expected around the first of the year. Dunn has authored many columns on Sarah Palin and relocated his family to Alaska for the summer so he could spend time conducting interviews and doing research for his book.
Also coming out with a book soon is former boyfriend of Palin’s daughter Bristol. Levi Johnston has reportedly now decided he’s reading to tell more. Johnston has become a vital figure in the controversy over whether several claims Palin and the McCain Campaign were factual. To this point Johnston has been fairly respectable and credible in his claims and actions.
From this quote of Tank Jones, Johnston’s agent and manager things have changed and if so, looks like things could get quite interesting in Wasilla. Good Luck Levi. Stay Safe.
“There’s a whole lot of material he hasn’t talked about because he wanted to protect the family,” Jones says. But since the Palin’s have been talking trash about him, Levi isn’t keeping quiet anymore. “The gloves are off; everything is going to come out.”
If you’re not a big fan of reading or just want to see Palin in person, you might and we stress the word might want to put your money elsewhere and take a leap of faith that Palin will show up for the events reportedly planned over the next few months.
You can take you chances if you live in Wisconsin if Sarah Palin speaks in a Milwaukee suburb next month as part of a program presented by Wisconsin Right to Life event on November 6th.
Hold on to your extra pennies so you can share in the fun of Sarah Palin. Happy shopping!
