Sarah Palin may be able to spot Russia from her house, but she won’t be seeing Naperville anytime soon.
The former governor of Alaska and the first Republican woman to run for vice president has canceled a book-signing appearance originally scheduled for 6 p.m. Dec. 1 at the Naperville Marriott Hotel.
The event was sponsored by Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville. “This cancellation is due to circumstances out of the control of Anderson’s Bookshops,” the store said in a statement released Wednesday afternoon.
So I popped over to Amazon to have a gander at her rankings.
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #646 in Books
This was up around #1000 earlier today, so I imagine that SarahPAC is probably doing some bulk buying. While I was at Amazon, I read her biography.
Sarah Palin grew up in Alaska towns, from Skagway to Wasilla to Anchorage, while her dad taught science and coached high school sports. (Wrong, Sarah never grew up). She and her future husband, Todd Palin, graduated from Wasilla High School in 1982, and she went on to earn her college degree from the School of Journalism at the University of Idaho.(Rilly?) Palin served two terms on the Wasilla City Council, then two terms as the city’s mayor and manager, (and was persuaded not to quit by her FIL) and was elected by her peers as president of the Alaska Conference of Mayors. She then chaired the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, and the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission. (And quit). Palin was elected Alaska’s youngest, and first female, governor, serving from 2006 to 2009. (Then she quit). While serving her state she was tapped as Senator John McCain’s running mate in 2008, becoming the first female Republican vice presidential candidate in our nation’s history. (And the laughing-stock of the entire world).
The Palins reside in Wasilla with their five (four) children, including a son in the U.S. Army, (last I heard he was wandering around a liquor store in Wasilla) and one grandson. (Poor Kyla never gets mentioned and we will never know exactly how many babbies Bristol has produced. I think it’s four but it could be as high as five, with another one currently being hidden and lied about). They enjoy an extended family throughout Alaska and the Lower 48. (Shame they don’t know who the baby daddies are – but they are out there somewhere).
So there you have it. Sarah Palin has quit her book-signing in Naperville. Snigger.
