Sarah Palin in Going Rogue": "We Were Devastated" by Daughter Bristol's Teen Pregnancy

Rate This

This will be Sarah Palin’s week. She’s traveling around the country in a bus painted to look like the cover of her book, “Going Rogue,” which comes out Tuesday (and was No. 1 on Amazon.com's bestseller list long before release). Oprah has a sit-down interview with her today, and we started seeing clips from it last week. Barbara Walters has nearly taped a mini-series, parts of which will air on Good Morning America, ABC News, Nightline and 20/20. It’s a sure bet that the interview will be a hot topic on The View, as well.

If you visit your local bookstore, undoubtedly you’ll see Palin’s book displayed front and center, and she’ll be on the cover of numerous magazines. The media blitz will certainly cover everything from Palin’s disastrous Katie Couric interview to her infighting with John McCain’s campaign staff to her views on the current administration, including notes on now Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. (Along the way, it wouldn’t even be a surprise to see a nod to Tina Fey.)

Some see the book as a revenge play, where Palin finally gets to have her say; others as a grand gesture to present herself as the viable candidate of the future. Politics is politics, after all. But the book is also something else: a new glimpse into a world where a mother of five children deals with rumors

I really like her, I think she's a human like the rest of us not immune to family struggles. I think I'm going to read her book from the library, though, not buy it. I think it was a big step for her to be on Oprah. I can't stand Oprah, but it shows she's reaching out to the more liberal audiences and isn't afraid of another interviewer like Katie Couric (who is ugly and I cannot stand her).

She, to me, is a very scary person. She is embarrasingly dumb and so are the people that vote for her.
She was, happily in the end, used to make the republicans seem more attractive but it certainly backfired on them! Yeah!
It's pretty sad that so many people WANT their potential leaders to be so lacking in intelligence and vision. Personally, I LIKE my leaders to be more than an ex beauty queen with a conservative agenda. May Obama continue trying to fix this country...if it's possible!
I will NOT be buying her book, needless to say and if she EVER gets into power, will probably leave the country!

I would like to propose a toast:

Here's to Sarah Palin; may she never - EVER - go away.

I am going to go out on a limb here: No woman since Eleanor Roosevelt has done more to further the cause of progressive politics in the United States of America than our Sarah.

Don'cha just love her? I sure do!
