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.
