The 24,000 emails that Sarah Palin sent and received while she was governor of Alaska didn’t turn out to be filled with salacious and incriminating tidbits, like many reporters had hoped. But as editor Michael Solomon discovered, they were full of beautiful verse. And thus, Michael has put together a collection of 50 Palin poems in the volume Hope Like Heck: The Selected Poems of Sarah Palin.
