I'm going on record. I am not going to buy nor read Sarah Palin's book. She is coming to the Coeur d'Alene Fred Meyer store December 10th on her signing tour. I will be no where in sight.
I must admit I considered going with my handy Flip video but have even decided against that. I just don't like the woman and do not, for the life of me, understand why this vacant, ill spoken woman gets the press she does. She appeals to ordinary Americans? She's one of us? I guess that makes me something other than ordinary.
I've been listening to all the hype until I'm to the point of not turning on the tube unless it's for the BCC. They seem to be the only real news broadcast out there any more and even they are over dosing on Palin. Did you listen to any of the Oprah interview? Was there anything other than whining? Is there anything in the book that has not yet been revealed? I'll pocket my $30 and take a chance.
It's hard for me to take her seriously as a family values person when her own family is somewhat dysfunctional. I don't blame this on the family as much as a mother whose ambitions out weighed motherhood. It's hard for me to take her seriously as a help to Republican candidates when she goes into an area, as she recently did in New York, without knowing the issues nor the constituency. Personality alone won't cut it in the end when the Democrat wins!
I find it especially hard to take her seriously when, as Maureen Dowd quotes from her book telling of Palin going into labor one 4th of July while kayaking, "I so wanted a patriotic baby that I paddled as hard as I could to speed up the contractions, but she held out until the next day."
This super hero of a woman belongs in a comic book. I can just see her in figure flattering tights with cape flowing behind her, fighting for the American underdog. Can she succeed in her fight against political corruption and media bias? Dang it, you betcha! Just not in the White House.
