Get Ready to Go Rogue With Sarah Palin

Attention lucky readers! Sarah Palin has finished her book Going Rogue: An American Life, just four months after she announced the book deal. The memoir will be released on Nov. 17 instead of in the Spring as originally planned.

While we don't know too much about the 400-page book, the publisher says: "Governor Palin has been unbelievably conscientious and hands-on at every stage." (Isn't that a given if you're writing a book?) When the book was announced, Palin said she was excited to have an "unfiltered forum" to set the record straight about her life and views.

The publisher believes that the book will be popular — it ordered 1.5 million copies for the first printing, the same number ordered for late Sen. Ted Kennedy's posthumous memoir.

Sarah Palin is definitely a fascinating figure, and based on what we hear from the likes of Levi Johnston, her "American life" can be pretty entertaining. Would you buy her book?

Definitely should be sold in the comedy section. I may read it at the library if I need a good laugh or to feel mentally superior.

Nope, urban legend. From the transcript of the interview with Charles Gibson: GIBSON: What insight into Russian actions, particularly in the last couple of weeks, does the proximity of the state give you? PALIN: They’re our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska. GIBSON: What insight does that give you into what they’re doing in Georgia? PALIN: Well, I’m giving you that perspective of how small our world is and how important it is that we work with our allies to keep good relation with all of these countries, especially Russia. We will not repeat a Cold War. We must have good relationship with our allies, pressuring, also, helping us to remind Russia that it’s in their benefit, also, a mutually beneficial relationship for us all to be getting along. She's right, by the way - you can see the easternmost land point of Russia from the westernmost point of Alaska. I don't happen to think that gives her foreign policy credentials, but the "I can see Russia from my house!" is all Tina Fey.

Right, you guys do realize that whole "I can see Russia from my house" comment was Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live, not actually Sarah Palin, right? I'm sure I'll read it eventually. It'd be interesting to get her take on how women who claim to be feminists have completely vilified her with incredibly demeaning, anti-woman remarks for having the audacity to have her own opinions on the world.

I'll probably read it, when it's out (at library or at bookstore), but not going to buy it. :p

Running, you made me laugh. :) I think I will read it. I like to read people's bios and opinions just to see what their thinking.

Will it have any her looking at Russia from her back yard? Will it be sold in the fiction or comedy or sci fi section?
