"Continetti, the associate editor of The Weekly Standard, shows that because Palin was a strong and popular conservative with traditional values, Washington Democrats and their allies in the so-called 'mainstream media' decided she had to be destroyed. His book details how these elite liberals attacked her in ways that no previous candidate had ever experienced. Everything from her clothing to her parenting style to her church were fair game, and no rumor was too malicious to spread."Penguin has to be worried that what bombshells Sarah Palin will drop in her memoir will overshadow any revelations Continetti will make in his book, so it plans to release Persecution five days ahead of Rogue's scheduled release date. Continetti's publisher is promising that its book "will surprise people with its fresh details about Palin and the 2008 campaign."
