Overview

Sarah Palin has many faces: hockey mom, fundamentalist Christian, sex symbol, Republican ideologue, fashion icon, “maverick” populist. But, above all, Palin has become one thing: an American obsession that just won’t go away. Edited by two senior editors at The Nation magazine, this sharp, smart, up-to-the-minute book examines Palin’s quirky origins in Wasilla, Alaska, her spectacular rise to the effective leadership of the Republican Party, and the nightmarish prospect of her continuing to dominate the nation’s political scene.

"Going Rouge, Sarah Palin: An American Nightmare" says it all. This book gives the truth behind the liar that Ms. Palin is. Earmarks are bad, she tells us, but the truth is she made sure her state got plenty, the most in the U.S. per citizen. As mayor of Wasilla, she made sure RAPE VICTIMS PAID FOR THEIR OWN RAPE KITS! Read this book if you want the truth about Sarah Palin

BE CAREFUL ordering this book. It is NOT the Sarah Palin book I expected. The "misspelling" of Rogue to Rouge did not catch my attention. I know this is my fault and I paid for it. When I started reading the first few pages I could not figure out what was going on. All it did was make fun or run her down. After a few more pages I threw it in the trash. Now I am going to order the REAL Sarah Palin book. Going Rogue - The American Dream by Ms. Palin.....

How she was chosen by John McCain's vetting team is a joke! John McCain should be ashamed of himself!
