Sarah, we hardly knew ye ;-)

I went to this morning to check on my pre-ordered copy of Sarah Palin's autobiography and while there I looked at some of the other Palin books.

All of the books that came up on the first page were, or seemed to be, positive except one. So I clicked on that one to see what they might have to say that was critical of Gov. Palin.

This is from the publisher's description of 101 Things You - and John McCain Didn't Know About Sarah Palin.

Hunter. Hockey mom. Live action figure.
Sarah Palin is living proof that politics does indeed make strange bedfellows. In 101 Things You--and John McCain--Didn't Know about Sarah Palin, readers learn the (alleged) truth about the (reputed) Republican darling from Alaska who's taken the nation by (ice) storm. In this hilarious, irreverent look at the world's most infamous Miss Congeniality, comedian and WTF? (ISBN 1605500313) author Gregory Bergman reveals more than one hundred bizarre, obscure facts about the bizarre, obscure governor from Wasilla, including:

#10 Sarah Palin supports funding for abstinence-only programs in schools. Just call her Grandma.

#22 "First Dude" Todd Palin, aka Sarah's husband, works for British Petroleum. Maybe he can bring gas prices down for good.

#55 Sarah Palin's future son-in-law Levi Johnston is a self-proclaimed "f-king redneck." "First Grandbaby" Billy Bob Johnston?

#100 In 2007, Sarah Palin offered $150 to every hunter who hacked off the left foreleg of a wolf shot from a plane. Talk about wolves being thrown, uh, to the wolves.

These are the four things the publisher considered most outrageous to hang out there and hook people into buying the book to see just what a wackjob Mrs. Palin is!

The author, Gregory Bergman has obviously never been outside the city limits of Manhattan, Washington DC or Los Angeles - unless you count the time he has spent in the air flying from one to the other.
