It was only a matter of time, and here it is: the announcement that Sarah Palin will be publishing a second book. Don't expect Going Rogue II: Rogue and Roguerer, though: this one's going to be more of a copy-paste operation.
Publisher HarperCollins announced Wednesday that the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate is working on a "celebration of American virtues and strengths." The book is currently untitled and no release date has been set.
Her new work will "include selections from classic and contemporary readings that have inspired her, as well as portraits of some of the extraordinary men and women she admires and who embody her love of country, faith, and family," the publisher's statement reads.
[Palin] is currently "gathering ideas and identifying favorite texts and examples."
Of course, if Barack Obama got millions of dollars for "writing" a book consisting mostly of excerpts from other people's works the right would be howling about Moby Teleprompter, or whatever. But this, this is "a celebration of American virtues and strengths," including — presumably — our ability to let a failed vice-presidential candidate and .5-term governor pass herself off as a political leader.
Anyway, better clear plenty of room on your bookshelf. Sarah Palin's gathering her favorite texts, and we all know how much that lady reads.
