Yesterday we learned that Sarah Palin’s memoir is set for an early November 17th release. Instantly people’s curiosity has peaked! In just a tad over 24 hours, Palin’s yet to be released book is as of this posting, #1 on Barns and Noble’s best seller list and #6 and climbing on Amazon. Everybody wants to know the inside scoop on Palin going Rogue.
Well John Fund gives us a little insight in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal by a short and revealing chat with Palin’s collaborator Lynn Vincent:
Ms. Vincent didn't reveal any details about the book, but did acknowledge it will describe Ms. Palin's frustration over her treatment by the staffers she inherited from the McCain campaign after her surprise pick as the GOP vice presidential nominee last year. Ms. Palin was booked on grueling interviews with hostile reporters while talk-show hosts such as Glenn Beck couldn't even get through to her aides. Mr. Beck tells me he was stunned when he picked up the phone one day just before the election to discover Sarah Palin was on the other end of the line. "She explained that she had been blocked from reaching her audience, so she was now 'going rogue' and booking her own interviews," Mr. Beck told me. "I was thrilled she had burst out of the cage they'd built for her and we were finally talking."
That incident was the only time Ms. Palin declared her independence from her keepers, and it's fitting that the title of her upcoming book will be "Going Rogue: An American Life."
Sounds like Palin won’t have nice things to say about the McCain staffers. I hope she tears them each a new one and unlike the cowardly staffers who anonymously bashed her after the campaign, you just know Sarah is going to call them out by name.
