Sarah Palin Can’t Win, But She’s Going to be a Force in the GOP

REPORTING FROM THE RETAIL TRENCHES:  Going Rogue has hit bookstore shelves packing the kind of right-wing mojo that I didn’t feel with Glenn Beck’s latest leaden screed, Arguing With Idiots.  Palin fans seem genuinely excited to buy this book.  Indeed, many of them appear to view their purchase of her somewhat fanciful memoir as a subversive act in itself.

Sarah Palin is no Hillary Clinton and never will be, but the buzz surrounding Going Rogue reminds me — a tiny bit! — of the reaction to Hillary’s 2003 autobiography Living History.  (Now that book was a genuine blockbuster.)

In a Republican presidential field where Newt Gingrich and Haley Barbour are considered serious candidates, there’s certainly room for Palin to give the corporate bag men plenty of headaches as they try to muscle through an electable dude to put them back on the government gravy train.



  1. True, it just applies to both parties. They both are worthless.
