Oh boy… Chris Matthews is going to be harder than Chinese arithmetic when he interviews this guy every night for the next month.

From the Associated Press:

JUNEAU, Alaska – A former member of Sarah Palin’s inner circle has written a scathing tell-all, saying Palin was ready to quit as governor months before she actually resigned and was eager to leave office when more lucrative opportunities came around.

“In 2009 I had the sense if she made it to the White House and I had stayed silent, I could never forgive myself,” Frank Bailey told The Associated Press.

Do you think the AP will have 11 “fact checkers” combing through this book?

Brace for hard-hitting revelations like this:

The book describes cameras rolling as Palin strode through the door at an Anchorage hotel “over and over and over,” for an RGA ad.”

Hey, if staging is good enough for Obama it should be good enough for Palin.

Another of Bailey’s revelations: Palin hates meetings. If he’s trying to make me like her even more, he just did.

As Levi Johnston can attest to Bailey, if the book thing doesn’t work out, there’s always Playgirl Magazine.

What I continue to find sorry is the depiction of Palin leaving office for private life as somehow a greedy move. As if it’s more noble and selfless to be addicted to power, refuse to give it up, and occupy your entire life — decades upon decades in some cases — giving away money that isn’t yours while taking credit for the philanthropy and enjoying endless perks on the taxpayers’ dime. Give me Palin’s form of greed any day.

    We don`t need no stinking fact checkers !! Any ol` scathing and damning "evidence" will do much better. We can apologize later if it turns out we were wrong about the "facts". Bwaaa haa haah !

    Chris….harder than Chinese arithmetic………for the next month…… ! We just thought Chris was "blue" before ! ;-)

    Your phrasages are comedy gold Doug !

    Living the kind of political life that Sarah Palin has lived thus far has caused her staff member, Frank Bailey, to want to marshmallow her to death making it seem that even her self-professed closest political enforcer can’t find anything more negative to wright about than “…she doesn’t like meetings….”

    What, no un-paid parking tickets from the `70s ? No un-paid overdue library book fees ?

    Franky just ain`t diggin` deep enough !

    This must be a big story, since the cover indicates he needed not one, but two ghostwriters.

    …and the cover photo. OMG! That’s the angriest, “set-your-affairs-in-order-suck’a,” look in their archives?

    Sometimes you make me so angry I could use harsh language!

    Clu..! The marshmallows aren't working..? Break out the wet noodles!

    Nothing Burger DEFINED! I will differ w/ Doug on one point though. Chrissy will offer to make Bailey a CO-HOST! At least daily segments featuring Frank reading another "juicy morsel" or tasty tidbit in front of a backdrop as dour and disturbing as a concentration camp ( or as close as they can get it ) and still remain on the air!

    How in God's creation after 3 years of watching Teh Wun channelling Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's best tough-guy looks with three hours of mirror/me time can -anyone- come off as being 'vain'?

    Palin writes a book and it's a NYT best seller for 12 weeks. Watch this Sleazebag Chronicle crash and burn. Some people have lives and make a difference. Others try to cash in on them.

    In a word – Parasites.

    ……..and write terse letters ! Oooooh !

  9. Doug on May 23rd, 2011 11:36 pm

    Speaking of the cover, question for the group: Did the publisher intend the cover to make it look like Bailey was checking out Sarah's behind?

  10. SignPainterGuy on May 24th, 2011 12:16 am

    Probably not, but the scuzzo couldn`t hide HIS intent in a burlap sack !
