We Read Sarah Palin’s Book (So You Don’t Have To)
What you need to know about “Going Rogue.”
-The Betty Editors
Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue is going great, selling more than 700,000 copies in a week and bringing out big crowds for her cross-country book tour. At BettyConfidential we decided to read her book and give you the abbreviated version of what Sarah says about her husband, Todd, son Trig, daughter Bristol, Katie Couric, the campaign, the media and her future. Consider this your CliffsNotes — just in time for some spirited debate over the Thanksgiving dinner table.
Let’s start where she does, when everything changed: So where was Sarah when John McCain popped the question, asking her to be his vice presidential running mate? She had just left the Right to Life tent at the Alaska State Fair and was on her way with infant Trig and her daughter Piper to a hula hoop contest. “One of my Blackberrys vibrated me back to work… Please, Lord, just for an hour, anything but politics,” she prayed. No such luck. McCain asked her if she wanted “to help him change history.” But he knew her answer. Earlier she had told him when she was being vetted for the job, “I’ll do whatever I can to help my country.”
