"Sarah From Alaska: The Sudden Rise and Brutal Education of a New Conservative Superstar" is a new book about former Governor Palin and the VP Campaign. The writers are two reporters who covered her extensively during the campaign and then came back to Alaska for further research. I haven't read it yet, but I know all the people quoted in the linked Juneau Empire article and I respect their opinions. It also has the ring of truth from my own observations. Here's the article: http://www.juneauempire.com/stories/112309/sta_528072912.shtml#mdw-comments
Pat Forgey is a local reporter for the Empire and I'd consider him pretty objective. You'll note that the quotes closely conform with much that I've said about She Who Was Once Governor. Maybe hearing it from somebody else will cause less hysteria than hearing it from me. So, to avoid having another thread shut down, I'll leave this diary too short and let the linked article speak for itself.
