Sarah Palin "Going Rogue" round-up / UPDATE: First Playgirl picture of Levi Johnston released!
UPDATE 4: Levi Johnston's first Playgirl picture has been released!
So - is Levi the new sex-symbol? The hunk from Wasilla? ;-)
Looks really good, if you ask me, and I am not even into men!
I am currently writing a long post about a subject which is definitely not covered in "Going Rogue". It will take a little while until the post is completed. In the meantime, I would like to point out a few other things:
"Celtic Diva" Linda Kellen Biegel has published a very informative post about the famous "desecration of an iconic image" photoshopping incident, which gave her national publicity back in June 2009. Linda compares the real facts with the account of the incident which the unemployed facebook-blogger Sarah Palin has provided in her already notorious book of lies "Going Rogue".
"Going Rogue" should be in shops today, and it seems certain to me that it will take years for Harper Collins' reputation to recover from this disaster which we see unfolding.
Huffington Post has appealed to their readers today: Send us any falsehoods you find in "Going Rogue," and the real story! I hope that many of our readers will participate so that HuffPost can separate truth from fiction! (h/t wayofpeace, thank you!)
Talking about fiction: It appears that the former McCain staffers who have been trashed in "Going Rogue" ignore John McCain's recommendation not to comment on the book. The former McCain staffer and Palin aide Nicolle Wallace, who is prominently featured in "Going Rogue", yesterday told NBC that "all the conversations in the book are just fabricated." Ouch!
The blog "White Noise Insanity" wrote an article about the controversy "abortion or miscarriage?" which is being discussed extensively here on palingates in the comments.
I would like to thank all of our readers who have left links to Palingates on other websites and blogs! Especially during the last days we saw considerable traffic through those links. We are very thankful for your support, and please keep it coming!
Regarding other news surrounding Sarah Palin I would like to recommend to take a look at Bree Palin's blog. She is doing a great job covering the current events.
Sarah Palin's book contains not just a virtually uncountable number of lies, but also a great mystery: Some pages seem to have gone missing! (SEE THE UPDATE BELOW)
At Amazon and Barnes & Noble, "Going Rogue" was supposed to have contained 432 pages - see the screenshots (click to enlarge):
Barnes & Noble:
From what I have heard from our fantastic source who already got hold of the book, "Going Rogue" has only 413 pages (and no index, as we all know already).
So what happened to the other pages?
Were all references to Levi Johnston deleted in the last minute, as well as the index?
Maybe our new friend Christopher Goff from Harper Collins could answer this question?
UPDATE 1: We were alerted by our readers that we might be mistaken and that Amazon and Barnes & Noble might actually have counted all the blank pages, added them to the numbered pages, therefore counting 432 pages in total. Therefore it's very well possible that this is the solution of the "mystery".
UPDATE 2: Please don't miss the hilarous "Rogue Nuggets" on Mudflats!
UPDATE 3: John Ziegler, one of Sarah Palin's nuttiest fans, reviewed "Going Rogue", and wrote:
"I was simply blown away by Going Rogue on almost every level. For many reasons, this is by far the best book and greatest literary achievement by a political figure in my lifetime."
Maybe we are all wrong and not able to recognize the infinite wisdom of the great leader Sarah Palin? ;-)
However, John Ziegler missed to mention that he is not only a big fan of Sarah Palin, but also batshit crazy - that explains A LOT:
I just saw that John Ziegler wrote in this article about "Going Rogue":
"Among other things, we discover that Sarah Palin has a ridiculously good memory. People who know me say that I have an amazing ability to recall events and I have written two books, but I was blown away by the level of detail in this project, which encompasses her entire life."
The thought doesn't even occur to him that his cult leader Sarah Palin just made all (or most) of these details up!
Why are so many psychopaths attracted by Sarah Palin? Well, I think we know the answer...
Last but not least, we have two tickets for the Quitter Queen's speech in Missouri, December 2, 2009. The location is College of the Ozarks, Point Lookout, MO, doors open at 6:00 pm, speech at 7.00 pm. Sarah is also going to have a book signing at Borders Book store in Springfield before her speech.
We really would like a dedicated palingates reader to slip into the role of citizen-reporter and cover this event for us!
