Sarah Palin's "Going Rogue" Book... Bestseller Or Doorstop?
Palin Relaxing With Her Snuggie
Sarah Palin has written a book called Going Rogue.
It hits book stores today.
It's being called a memoir of her life.
I'm sorry, a memoir? It's not like she has this great history behind her life as a hockey Mom and ex Governor of Alaska. And certainly her political career has been beyond laughable.
So the question now is...
will Palin's book end up on the bestseller list? Or go over like a fart in church?
Besides the obvious that will plague this book, (Palin's lack of popularity) I read that her book was ghostwritten by Lynn Vincent. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot!
Why you ask? Whos' Lynn Vincent?
Lovely Lynn is not only the ghostwriter of Sarah's book, she is pretty cozy with well known, white supremacist, Robert Stacy McCain (no relation to McCain the maverick) and she co-wrote a book with him.
Some snippettes The First Post about Lynn and Robert Stacy McCain,
She (Lynn) is also staunchly anti-gay, backing the controversial vote to re-criminalise gay marriage in California, and - this is where Palin and her publishers might have drawn the line, but didn't - she is closely associated with a well-known white supremacist.
He is Robert Stacey NcCain, a former editor at the Washington Times, a paper he left two years ago after a steaming row with a colleague.
Another Vincent collaboration was with a retired general, William Boykin, former head of the US Army's Special Forces Command. He described his career mission as to defeat Satan in order to save America as a Christian country. "We are hated because we are a nation of believers," he said.
"Defeat Satan to save America as a Christian country"?
Yikes! What year is this again?
As mentioned previously, Lynn is also a credited author on Robert Stacy McCain's book, “Donkey Cons: Sex, Crime, and Corruption in the Democratic Party". Again, just lovely.
According to a comment left on Little Green Footballs
After resigning as governor in late July, Palin spent most of August in San Diego working with Vincent on the book, “Going Rogue: An American Life.” Rumors swirled about Palin sightings at Vincent’s condo complex in north San Diego County. Palin reportedly was joined here by her family and top aide, Meghan Stapleton. This month, Palin huddled with her editors in New York.
So out of all the ghostwriters that Palin had to choose from, she picked Lynne Vincent? As always, Palin shows her brilliance. And to think that she ran for VP. *shudders* Continued on the next page
