Going Rogue/Going Rouge

Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin has come out with a new book, "Going Rogue". Judging from the comments that both conservative and liberal men make about her, I hope she has a few pictures from her swimsuit segment in that famous beauty pageant. Her book will be a sure-fire bestseller.

My colleague, "Sue", is a dead-ringer for Sarah Palin: So much so, in fact, that Sue is constantly waylaid in public by men begging for her autograph and asking for a picture with her. When we are in a business meeting, the men are inevitably staring at her until they finally screw up the courage to ask her "Why do you look so familiar?"

It is an amazing experience to be part of "Sarah Palin's" retinue.

But although Sarah Palin is a highly attractive, polished woman, I feel that there is less substance to her than I'd like. I admit immediately that I've not read her book yet (it's release is slated to be November 17th). However, it's not clear if we can really call it hers, as she had it ghost written by Lynn Vincent.

Interestingly, there's another book about Sarah Palin that will be released shortly. It's called "Going Rouge", and is supposed to be composed of a group of commentaries written about her by a group of people who are distinctively unimpressed with her.

Both books will be interesting to skim through... *ahem*, I mean read.

You work with Tina Fey?

Glad to see you are back. I doubt that I will read either of those books.

Glad to hear you are finally on the road to recovery.

I don't have much respect for Sarah Palin and I think it was a mistake for McCain to pick her as his running mate.

I will not likely be reading either of the books about her. I really think she has screwed up enough to seriously hinder her political future.

I'm glad you're feeling enough better to post once in a while. You were missed

I think that Palin made a poor showing in a number of interviews during the last election. Regardless of that, I am more than willing to give her a serious look, and hope that she improves her presentation and knowledge on the issues. If nothing else, she does strike me as a conservative of character, and I would much rather have that than a great communicator. My personal opinion is that most of the media will savage her regardless of how well she performs. I would have loved to have Condi Rice run for president last time, but that didn't happen. At the very least, Palin gives conservatives someone to look into. I haven't seen the Republican party pushing a lot of those forward lately.

I am glad you are back to it. Rest well and take care of yourself.

I do see a place for her on the GOP somewhere.
Not as President, but I'm eager to see what's in store for the GOP as even more changes are coming for the country.
