In The Lies of Sarah Palin, Geoffrey Dunn provides the first full-scale and in-depth political biography of the controversial Republican vice-presidential candidate and former governor of Alaska. He also provides the shocking inside story of her betrayal of running mate John McCain during the presidential campaign and her self-serving resignation as governor in July of the following year. Dunn deftly places Palin in the American tradition of right-wing demagoguesfrom Huey Long to Joe McCarthyand details her troubling obsession with Barack Obama as it fuels her own political ambitions and a potential run for the presidency in The Lies of Sarah Palin is a journalistic tour de force that vividly reveals the Queen of the Tea Party movement as a vengeful and manipulative empress without clothes.
Poor Sarah Palin has had a truly terrible week, one that really proves the ol' maxim that men plan and God laughs. Or, in Palin's case, a woman plans and the lamestream media, once again, reveals its screwy priorities. This is because, as Palin told Greta Van Susteren of Fox News last week, the title of president would in some way "limit" her, and especially her ability to be a "maverick", and definitely limit her ability to earn money from Fox News acting as pundit from the TV studio they built for her on her property. Presumably she expected — and with good reason a phrase one rarely employs in connection to Palin — to be front page news the next day. Never mind that her candidacy was always going to be much less of threat to the Democrats than that of, oh let's say, Chris Christie, who also announced that he would not run this week. It's very, very hard not to imagine Palin grinning in anticipation at all the attention she would, once again, take away from the actual candidates by her announcement that she is Too Big To Run. And then, that west coast geek had to go and die. Yes, Steve Jobs had the temerity to die on the day Palin made her announcement — or, to be strictly accurate, for talk show host Mark Levin read out her announcement — meaning that all the talk in the papers the next day was of Jobs and how he changed the world blah blah and Palin was bumped to page The only talk about her was along the lines of " Is the Sarah Palin industry doomed? But not one without redeeming points!
