Sarah Palin's Book Is Already on Clearance
Holly Bailey


screenshot of Amazon.com, 10/23/09


With just under a month to go before itís released to the masses, Sarah Palinís upcoming autobiography, Going Rogue, has already been near the top of Amazonís bestseller list for weeks. No surprise, considering the enormous amount of interestóboth bad and goodóthe former Alaska governor has generated since John McCain named her as his vice presidential running mate last year. But there may be more to the story: over the past week or so, Amazon has been steadily dropping the price of Palinís book to compete with other retailers, including Wal-Mart, which offered it for presale at $10. Amazon, which originally listed it at $28.99, is now basically giving the book away for a measly $9. This, as my fellow NEWSWEEKer Sarah Ball notes, is cheaper than buying a copy of Pat the Bunny. Heck, even How to Win Friends and Influence People is priced higher. Of course, it would be absolutely, positively un-American for Wal-Mart to back down from its promise of offering people the absolute lowest price, and now it's reportedly charging $8.98 for the Palin opus. By your Gagglerís math, thatís a whopping 2 cents a page, or, as weíd describe it, practically free. Will Amazon go even lower? Could there be a buy-one-get-one-free scenario in the offing? Not likely, now that the trade association representing independent bookstores has gotten involved. It has asked the Justice Department to investigate Amazon, Wal-Mart, and Target (a partner with Amazon) for charging below-cost prices for books in order to dominate the bookselling industry. You know what that means: buy your copies now.

If she made a photo shoot book, full of bikini pics and glamor shots, it would be a best seller, I'm sure of it. that's all she really needs to do now if she wants to make big money. Just forget the politics career for cryin' out loud, dump that that notion and focus on your celebrity, complete with pics, sexy videos, perhaps consider making a music video. but forget politics, its over, just focus on making money.

If I was her manager I would suggest that..

C'mon, Mr.T and get that toungue outta yer cheek. But I agree that at present,she has no political functionality. Now If MEEMOON were her advisor,I'd have her meet us in Orlando and.........well...she wouldn't wanna write a book about it,that's fer damn sure. Pics or no pics. Maybe.

PS: (A riddle) If "MILF" means "moms I'd like ta f**K" and "milferage" would be doing just that, what would "pilferage" be?

I don't know, I give up..

What does "milferage" meen? The knowledge (understanding) of the word might better help me to give you a more meaningful response, however, I doubt it. I'm not into giving meaningful responses right now, its not in my agenda.

I suppose I missed the point entirely, won't be the first time...
