Sarah Palin Wrote a Book
Sarah Palin wrote a book. Well, Sarah Palin has her name on a book and her face on the dust jacket. Due out November 17, it's already available for pre-order from Amazon and other reputable book purveyors. Printing presses hum from Ketchikan to Sandpoint. It's cheap too; just $15.65 with free shipping if you order more than one.
Michael Palin books are funnier; perhaps Sarah Palin's book isn't supposed to be funny. As an office book, this tome may end up as a door-stop.
Amazon offers a bundle. Palin's book and the latest in-your-face diatribe from Dick Morris can be had in the same shipping container. Mr. Morris, the author of a dozen books, is worth a few cents more than Gov Palin. His book goes for $15.78.
The Huffington Post (obviously not biased) hints that Sarah allegedly might have possibly maybe perhaps (gotta watch that libel) received a 7 million dollar advance for her work. She doesn't have much to lose at this point. Her life has been probed and exposed since she accepted the Vice Presidential nomination on September 3rd, 2008. Her family has been subjected to every form of investigative pressure imaginable; she may as well earn a few dollars from the rectal probe that has become national politics. One can only speculate at the tourist dollars her sudden fame brought to chilly Wasilla. She single handedly saved the lip balm industry as investigative journalists and private detectives scoured the frozen tundra for evidence of malfeasance and nonfeasance.
Who really wrote the book? Did Sarah touch type her own story? Did she filter her anecdotes through a ghost writer or three? Perhaps she hired a spinmeister from Acorn or The Heritage Foundation? Hopefully she used both, thereby attracting attention from Fox and MSNBC.
Joe The Plumber scored his own book deal. His decision was easier than Sarah's. He could continue toiling away under bathroom sinks swathed in anonymity or bare his political soul through Pearlgate Publishing. Samuel Wurzelbacher (you'd call yourself Joe too) sees his masterpiece listed on Amazon.com for $18.96. Joe's travails are worth more than Dick and Sarah. Joe's book ranks #715,182 on the Amazon Bestseller list. Joe credits a co-auther, Thomas N. Tabback, who also wrote a novel titled Things Forgotten. Thomas' novel was also published by Pearlgate and has climbed to #447,996 in the Amazon annals.
Tom Delay wrote a book titled No Retreat, No Surrender: One American's Fight shortly after surrendering his job as Republican House Majority Leader. Amazon wants $10.38 for it. Delay was assisted by Stephen Mansfield, who also gets credit for penning The Faith of Barak Obama and The Faith of George Bush. Ex-congressman Delay also competed briefly on the 9th season of Dancing with the Stars on ABC. A foot boo boo forced him to drop out.
