Hmmmm… Which one of these books am I going to buy? One of them was not actually written by Sarah Palin and will almost certainly make her look like a mentally-challenged imbecile.
And the other is a collection of dry essays from the editors of The Nation.
Man! Tough choice…
Start-up publisher OR Books has announced plans to publish Going Rouge: Sarah Palin An American Nightmare, a collection of essays about the maverick Republican with a title — and cover design — remarkably similar to Palin’s upcoming memoir. What’s more, OR's paperback tome will be released on Nov. 17, the same day that Palin's own Going Rogue: An American Life hits shelves…
Going Rouge is compiled by Richard Kim and Betsy Reed, two top editors of the left-leaning weekly The Nation, and includes essays by Nation regulars like Katrina vanden Heuvel, Naomi Klein, and Katha Pollitt.
First of all, this parasite book is stupid on the part of The Nation. It's brashly duplicitous and intentionally confusing and small and petty.
And I think it would just be terrible if some not-very-clear-thinking Palin fan, putting emotion before reason, got suckered into supporting such a thing.
