Today’s Lady News: Scenes From A Sarah Palin Book Signing

  • Blogger Amanda Hess at The Sexist braved the snow outside at Sarah Palin‘s Going Rogue book signing in Fairfax, Virginia, to ask all the ladies waiting in line what the ex-guv means for women and feminism. Typical quotes? “[Palin] presents herself feminine…The impression is that feminists are women who don’t like to value their feminine qualities, and they like to put it down and be like a man, and I don’t think that’s appropriate for women. I kind of like her in that regard, that she’s sort of celebrating her womanhood as well.” [The Sexist]
  • Jon Stewart called out “Fox & Friends” co-host, Gretchen Carlson, for pretending to be a dumb blonde on-air by looking up the definition of difficult polysyllabic words like “ignoramus,” “recession” and “czar.” Carlson’s not an ignoramus, though, because she was actually valedictorian of her high school and attended Stanford, though. Ugh, I hate when women play the ditz card. [Jezebel]

Quotable: Sarah Palin Endorses Cannibalism

“If any vegans came over for dinner, I could whip them up a salad, then explain my philosophy on being a carnivore: If God had not intended for us to eat animals, how come He made them out of meat?”

– Sarah Palin in Going Rogue. Does that mean they’ll be serving all kinds of meat — you know, dogs, cats, and, uh, humans — at the Palin family Thanksgiving? Keep reading »

Palin Parody Book Creating Lots of Oopsies In The Media

Ha ha ha. On the very same day that HarperCollins released Sarah Palin‘s memoir, Going Rogue: An American Life, new book publisher O/R put out its first offering—Going Rouge: An American Nightmare. The covers are almost identical, though instead of the red hoodie and sunny sky, the mock version uses a stock photo of Sarah in a red suit against a stormy sky. Going Rouge is a collection of essays about Sarah Palin, curated by Richard Kim and Betsy Reed, both editors at The Nation, and written by authors and journalists like Eve Ensler, Katha Pollitt, Frank Rich, Tom Perrotta, and Naomi Klein. And the tome is apparently causing a ton of confusion. When USA Today ran a review of Palin’s book in today’s issue, the piece was accompanied by a photo of Going Rouge. Fox News Channel made the same mistake in a segment last week. (Or were these errors the work of Palin-hating employees playing a prank?) And O/R publishing has evidently been contacted by oodles of reporters wanting to chat with Palin. “One website not only thought we were Ms. Palin’s publishers but called the book Going Rough,” joked the book’s co-publisher. So what do you think—is this funny satire, or over-the-line sabotage? [NY Post]

Sarah Palin’s Memoir Gives Hope To Wolves Everywhere

Since the release of Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue: An American Life, many folks have been howling about the claims made within its covers. But there is one group that stands to profit from her opus—and it’s not the donkeys or elephants. It’s the wolves. San Francisco bookstore Green Apple Books has decided to “go rogue” and donate 100 percent of the profits from Palin’s book to the Alaska Wildlife Alliance. The AWA seeks to stop the aerial hunting of wolves and other game, which the gun-toting ex-governor supports. Why is hunting wolves a problem? Because they’re a vital part of the healthy Alaskan wilderness and aerial hunting is decimating the population and disturbing the delicate ecosystem. Who’s howling now, Sarah?

Sarah Palin’s “Going Rogue”

Great news for all you folks who were terrified that you’d have to wait until the spring to read Sarah Palin‘s memoir—HarperCollins has decided to move the release date to November 17. [Happy Birthday, Me! -- Editor] That’s right, pitbull hockey moms, only two months and 18 days until you can read it! The book now also has a title, Going Rogue: An American Life, a nod to what a McCain aide said she was doing during last year’s election. Palin collaborated on the book with World editor Lynn Vincent, and reportedly reeled in $7 million smackeroos for her effort. She said she felt it was important to tell her own story since “there have been so many things written and said through mainstream media that have not been accurate.” Though I think it’d be pretty funny if it turned out to be sci-fi/fantasy with her as the star.
