Palin Settling Scores in New Book
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s new memoir, Going Rogue, will be released Tuesday — but details from advance copies have already started to leak out.
Early reports portray the book as an exercise in score-settling and Palin’s trademark victimhood, as her litany of grievances take aim at Katie Couric, whom she reportedly accuses of being “badgering” and biased. Not surprisingly, many of the perceived slights came from the McCain campaign operation, whom she resentfully confirms would not allow her to give a concession speech on election night. (Such a speech from a vice presidential candidate is, of course, unprecedented.)
According to the AP story (linked above), a serious accusation made in the book is already in dispute. Plain claims that the McCain campaign billed her for $50,000 in expenses relating to the legal vetting process. The McCain camp denies this.
The former governor and VP nominee is scheduled to kick off her book tour next week with interviews with Oprah and Barbara Walters — so look for next week’s news coverage to be saturated with Palin mania.
