A grumpy Sarah Palin posted a note on her Facebook page which claims that the AP’s report on the contents on the book is erroneous. It doesn’t seem to matter to her that the AP has actually read the book, because she said, “And as is expected, the AP and a number of subsequent media outlets are erroneously reporting the contents of the book.”
The AP bought a copy of her book early and was able to spill the beans on Palin’s complaints about the McCain campaign, Katie Couric, and her daughter Bristol’s pregnancy. Palin essentially called the AP a liar on herFacebook page, “As you probably have heard, the AP snagged a copy of my memoir, Going Rogue, before its Tuesday release. And as is expected, the AP and a number of subsequent media outlets are erroneously reporting the contents of the book.”
She urged her fans to buy the book, “Keep your powder dry, read the book, and enjoy it! Lots of great stories about my family, Alaska, and the incredible honor it was to run alongside Senator John McCain.” She should have posted, please buy my book. Please, please buy my book. Don’t listen to the nation’s dominant wire service, listen to me.
Instead of blaming the bookseller who sold the book early, Palin is blaming the Associated Press for reading it. Her charge that the AP is erroneously reporting on the book is complete nonsense. By acknowledging that the AP got a copy of the book, it is hard to believe that they would incorrectly report its contents.
The book sounds like exactly what one would expect from Palin. It is going to be short on policy, but full of blame for everyone else associated with the 2008 campaign except her. In the world of Sarah, when things dog wrong it is always someone else’s fault. This woman has never taken responsibility for any of her previous mistakes, so why should she start now?
