I’m sure David Letterman is putting His Best Man On It in regards to the inevitable “Top 10 Revelations in Sarah Palin’s New Book.” References to moose, Levi Johnston, Willow Palin, Todd, Russia and pit bulls should be copious. Maybe they can juxtapose a Roman Polanski child-rape joke in there for good measure. I won’t be surprised if the entire week’s Top 10s aren’t dedicated to the Palin theme.- JP
Of course, we’ll also get the nightly clown-car of CNN, Headline News and MSNBC gathering together a baker’s dozen of talking heads speculating who wrote the book, seeing as how they concluded long ago that Palin is completely illiterate. FOX will have positive coverage, though make no mistake, ol’ fair and balanced Bill will make sure and have Geraldo or Mark Lamont Hill on to bash, bash, bash away, then lament that “Ms. Palin is always welcome here at The Factor.”
Then, I suspect, once the dust settles and once all the mockery has settled down, Americans will begin finishing Palin’s book, and if it’s anything like every other thing Palin has done in the last year, it will be electrifying for some, infuriating for others, and I suspect by Christmas it will be clear whether or not Palin is running for POTUS. The initial run of 1.5 million is ambitious, but I imagine a second-printing will be ordered within days of the first, especially once the book starts getting play on talk radio, which [it] inevitably will.
