Oh, those crazy conservatives at Human Events….they do make me laugh! Most of the time they make me cringe, and occasionally they make me nauseous, but somehow they manage to toss me little crumbs that make it all worth while. Today, I received my daily email from the dark side, and in it, the offer of “Sarah Palin’s New Book” for free!
Of course, the book isn’t by Sarah Palin as the subject line might imply. And it isn’t new as the subject line might also imply. This book has been around for at least a year, and I’ve seen it sitting in stacks on the book table at Costco.
I’ve even seen it for sale at Wal-Mike’s (left), an interesting little business with lots of “local color,” located on the Parks Highway about an hour north of Wasilla, where they were also selling a ‘Sarah Palin for Governor’ frisbee for $1500. I didn’t bother to check how much they were charging for the book. But, I digress…
Back to the email:
Now, the major media is in full overdrive to smear and rewrite the accomplishments of this courageous young woman and rising Republican star.
But who is the real Sarah Palin?
She is more than a former beauty queen, conservative politician, family advocate, hockey mom with “lipstick” and moose-hunting NRA lifetime member.
She is a true reformer who took on the political and business establishment in Alaska and won.
And she may make history as the first female vice president of the United States.
(screechy brake noise) She MAY make history as the first female vice president? Yes, I received this email on November 30th, which means that Human Events doesn’t actually update, or proofread their emails before sending them. It’s the “Just use that one again” strategy.
In Sarah, the first biography of Palin, author Kaylene Johnson draws upon personal interviews with Palin herself, her family, and closely placed sources to explore her private and public life. Sarah also includes 16 pages of Sarah Palin’s most personal photos!
(screechy brake noise) MOST personal photos? Couldn’t we just have the regular personal photos? What makes these the MOST personal?? I solemnly take a vow that the next time I am in Costco, I will take a big deep breath and look at Sarah Palin’s most personal photos, and report back.
In the meantime, those of you who do not have access to this amazing free book deal, can order your very own copy of Sarah at Amazon for a mere $15.95 in paperback. AND, you know how Amazon has that thing where you can buy two related books, and get a special offer? Here’s the deal you get with Sarah:

HUH?? No, I am not making this up. Terror Occulta….truly. This is the book, of all books, that Amazon has chosen to pair with Sarah Palin’s Biography. Wow.
Here’s a brief description:
In a classic tale of good and evil, in Terror Occulta, author Victor F. Paletta goes to an eerie and wicked place that is wholly unusual and utterly fascinating. His is a distant future where life on earth has taken a turn for the worst. An enemy that once hid from a more technologically advanced people turns the tide, and is now on a relentless hunt for humans.
Could this “distant future” be…(insert creepy organ chord here)….2012???
