From The Guardian: Amanda Marcotte's Entertaining Review of the New Palin Book.

Although I will never buy or read any book by Sarah Palin, I do look at the reviews.  Amanda Marcotte's recent piece in The Guardian on Palin's new book, America by Heart, is interesting and entertaining.  The book's intended audience, notes Marcotte, is angry, white, conservative Americans and:

As expected, the book is a mish-mash of lies, contradictions, empty feelgood rhetoric and, above all, the stoking the feelings of resentment in her target audience against the usual cadre of villains: people of colour, liberals, feminists, cosmopolitan types, even Nasa (as the Palin-watch blog palingates points out, "potentially elitist, many educated people working there")… anyone who has books on their bedside table without the words "chicken soup" in the title.

Check out the full review here.

Yes, you'd have to pay me to read Sarah Palin's book.
