Here are brand-new pictures from Sarah's book-signing in Cincinnati, Ohio:
So where does this strange magazine come from: "America - Let' take back our country - The case for Sarah Palin"?
Don't miss this excellent, must-read article by Geoffrey Dunn in Huffington Post:
Palin's Former Ally Calls More Lies to Rogue
Geoffrey Dunn writes:
(...) But perhaps the nastiest and most duplicitous passages of all in Going Rogue are those directed at Andree McLeod, the longtime Republican watchdog out of Anchorage who filed many of the Alaska Ethics Act complaints that, by Palin's own admission, hounded her from office.
Palin's venom directed at McLeod is both racist and viciously inaccurate. Perhaps a court will one day determine if it's also libelous.
McLeod, now in her mid-50s and who is of Armenian descent by way of Lebanon, is referred to as the "falafel lady" repeatedly by Palin throughout her book. It's an intended slur of ethnic derision, loaded with all of Palin's adolescent fury. It's also reminiscent of those members of Palin's "Team Sarah" who referred to Barack and Michelle Obama's Inaugural Dance as the "Watermelon Roll." The phrase is as appalling as it is infantile.
Perhaps most importantly--and this is the one issue that astonishes those in the Lower 48 when I talk to them about Palin and Alaska politics--McLeod is a tried and true Republican. So are most of Palin's staunchest critics in Alaska, from Lyda Green to Rick Rydell to Andrew Halcro.
McLeod had made friends with Palin after she lost her bid for Lt. Governor in 2002 and before Palin served as the chair and ethics officer of the Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission. They worked together during Palin's highly publicized battle with Republican Party Chair Randy Ruedrich. None of that is included in Going Rogue. It's a lie of omission--one of truly grand proportions.
And guess what else you won't read in Going Rogue? Sarah Palin actually supported McLeod politically during her runs for the Alaska state house. Prominently displayed on McLeod's campaign brochure was a supportive quote from the former Mayor of Wasilla:
Like many of us, Andree wants good government. She's not afraid to stand up for what's right. Though she ruffles a feather or two now and then, this intelligent Alaskan is exactly what we need during these times.-- Sarah Palin
Of course, Palin is possessed of neither the decency nor the integrity to acknowledge any of this history or the depth of her relationship with McLeod in Going Rogue. (...)
UPDATE - How to win friends and influence people:
Read the accounts of the deeply disappointed and disillusioned fans on this website about her disorganized book signing in Noblesville, Indiana!
I wonder if she had to rush to her next media interview!
Wonkette reports that several hundred fans who waited in freezing temperatures in Noblesville, Indiana were NOT happy - because Sarah left already after half an hour, leaving hundreds of books unsigned. Watch them yelling:
There is more - Wonkette strikes again!
Face to face with the Palinites, camping to see their leader:
Thanks to Bree Palin, we now have a video of Sarah Palin in Cincinnati. Apparently it is "bold" and "courageous" to turn up at a book signing, according to Sarah Palin! Give the people the Purple Heart just for turning up, it's so courageous, so brave! Thanks, Sarah, for still sending out your religious "code words".
