Much of it was written in seclusion in San Diego

Apparently San Diego has proven not only to be America’s Finest City, but also a fertile ground for writing as well. Sarah Palin, the famous (or infamous, depending on your politics) former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate apparently has already finished her memoir, far in advance of its originally planned completion date.

NBC reported that Palin worked full-time for almost four months to finish the book, actually moving her family to San Diego for most of the month of August so she could work on the project with her collaborator.

The book now has been given a title, “Going Rogue: An American Life”, which is appropriately inflammatory given the attitude and actions of Ms. Palin since she was announced as John McCain’s running mate way back in 2008.

The completion of the book comes just four months after the book deal was first announced and the release date has been moved up from the spring of 2010 to Nov. 17th of this year.

Her publisher was quoted as saying, “Governor Palin has been unbelievably conscientious and hands-on at every stage, investing herself deeply and passionately in this project,” said Jonathan Burnham, publisher of Harper. “It’s her words, her life, and it’s all there in full and fascinating detail.”

The book, her first, will be approximately 400 pages , with a huge first printing planned of 1.5 million copies. The exciting aspect for the publisher is that, because it was completed early, it will be available in hard cover for the holiday buying season. Publishers as a whole have been concerned that e-books, rapidly becoming more popular, might take away sales from more expensive hardcover editions. For this reason, the e-book will not be available until after Christmas.

During and after last year’s presidential campaign, many experts questioned whether Palin hurt McCain’s presidential bid by “going rogue,” or defying his campaign’s control (not to mention her lack of experience and ability to speak to any issues coherently), so the book could actually provide some interesting reading.

Our question is, “Could this be considered premature publication?”

    Alaska was a pretty corrupt system until Palin stepped in. Her reforms took on entrenched politicians (inc. Republicans), a mafioso-style union boss, and Big Oil.

    Wouldn’t it have been nice if Obama had been principled and brave enough to confront the corrupt Chicago Democratic Machine? Or shady political operators like Tony Rezko? Racist preachers? Instead of doing business with every last one of them?

    IMO people could end up voting for the Gipper-in-Heels in droves- they’ll surely being looking for some such antidote to the Bolshevik con-artist who’s taking a wrecking-ball to this society now.

    Small wonder then that far-left moonbats -along with Team Obama’s David Plouffe internet-control squad- are out to destroy her. The fact that she’s been highly successful in life while rejecting liberal feminism explains the extra dose of venom in the attacks-

    Go get em ‘Cuda- you’re one tough lady… and there’s a lot of us behind you.

    Sarah Palin is a breath of fresh air. She has demonstrated real passion towards her family and country; real passion, not practiced emoting for the cameras. I would vote for her hands down over Barry Obama. Palin is change I can believe in. Go Sarah!

    I think it’s adorable that she wrote a book. Now, how about she starts being the mom that she proclaims to be instead of parading her children and grandchild around like a circus act? Using her grandchild as a poster child for abstinence is disgusting and unforgivable. That child will grow up someday thinking he was unwanted and a burden. I, at one time, felt sorry for her daughter. Now, I realize she’s just a carbon copy of her mother. Arrogant, uneducated and self-righteous. A true narcissist.

    As for Sarah, her lies and abuses are all well known as well as her lack of education and logic. I’m hoping someone gives me a copy for the holidays because I just love a good laugh, but wouldn’t give her a dime. If she’s lucky, she can run for some other office so that she can justify a new wardrobe.

    Sadly, she’s doomed. The Democrats remember all to well her baseless accusations, her lack of common knowledge and lies. The GOP isn’t desperate enough to give her the chance to run. Her only option would be to run as Independent. Good luck.
