Sarah Palin derangement syndrome for profit

In case you haven't heard, the Sarah Palin-obsessed lowlife editors of The Nation are rushing the publication of a copycat book to capitalize on Palin's popularity.  Don't be fooled!  The book cover is very similar to the real book, and conservatives who see it at Borders or Barnes and Noble, might just grab it believing it is.  From Gateway Pundit:
A new low for the rabid left…

They just can’t hate this Christian conservative woman enough.

A far left startup publisher is going to release “Going Rouge,” a collection of Palin hit-pieces, on November 17th, the same day as Sarah Palin’s best seller “Going Rogue” hits the book stores.

Shelf Life reported, via Free Republic:

We know that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin can hunt, and even field-dress a moose, but how will she take to poachers on her book sales? Start-up publisher OR Books has announced plans to publish Going Rouge: Sarah Palin An American Nightmare, a collection of essays about the maverick Republican with a title — and cover design — remarkably similar to Palin’s upcoming memoir. What’s more, OR’s paperback tome will be released on Nov. 17, the same day that Palin’s own Going Rogue: An American Life hits shelves — and one day after Palin’s just-announced, first-ever appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s show. (A shout-out to Ron Hogan at GalleyCat for the tip.)
Allahpundit and Ed Morissey have more at here and here.  The REAL book is doing very well in advance of its November 17 release date, as Amazon confirms on its website:

 If you want to buy, Sarah's book you can get it here.  If you want to buy the other book, find it for yourself.


  1. It's sad that some people just don't have anything better to do than to bash Sarah Palin long after she stepped out of the spot light.

  2. By the way, Barry Obama whines about Fox and Rush, but he wouldn't survive one day receiving the criticism that Palin receives. I don't recall Letterman joking about Natasha and Malea getting 'knocked up' by A-Rod...

  3. uh, when did she step out of the spotlight and when in her constant stay in the spotlight has she done anything OTHER than bash everyone else? She is petty and she is not well versed in serious policy issues, nor has she demonstrated any indication that she wants to be. And this is not a left-right thing. She can be another rightwing TV/Radio clown, OR she could raise the level of debate instead of lowering it. She could be a serious advocate on policy, or continue to be an immature child.
