If you thought being governor of Alaska and a new grandmother would be enough to fill the cold, dark nights in the Arctic state, you underestimate Sarah Palin, the failed vice presidential candidate.

Palin has reportedly enlisted the services of Robert Barnett, the Washington lawyer who represented President Obama, would-be President Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Bill Clinton in their multimillion-dollar book deals.

    If you think that this woman is not all that intelligent, most should look in the mirror. Do you have a college degree? Have you contributed to your local government the way that she has? Are you a governer of your state? Statisics say that you are probably not. Yes, you should believe that your elected officals should be more prepared than others to take on the tasks that are before them, but is there any doubt that she has done a better than average job in Alaska? Look at where the CEO's of banks and Enron have came from. The came from places like Harvard and Yale. It is really hard to understand why people would attack a woman who stands up for what they believe in and has a proven track record (more so than others). Again, look in the mirror, and before you spew verbal diarrhea, use the old adage, people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

    Maybe it will be a children book. Dick and Jane, see Sally run, etc.

    So many “Smart people” out there criticizing, judging, undermining... condemning Sarah Palin. But not one of them can take a single breath without the will of God... God made Sarah Palin just as he made every single one of us... Fear God! For there to be evil in the world is a privilege, a gift, an opportunity to do good. Sarah Palin should not feel a bit bad at all for the fact that so many shallow pitiful people chose the prospect of a brighter economy versus Life and the Sanctity of Family.

    Oh, give me a break! This woman just will not go away. She needs to go out and shoot something and then eat it. Leave the rest of us alone.

    I can't believe this. This is so very sad. This woman keeps humiliating herself in every way possible. What a mess!

    With her resume and unemployment being what it is I am sure she is preparing for the future. I can't imagine shortlisting her for any real job with her 44 years and one page of experience and qualifications.

    I've not been able to imagine a Palin book that would be worth the cost of shipping and handling, but methinks her inability to complete a readable sentence is no obstacle. There are lots of "editors" who can take care of that problem. Where the content would come from, I don't know.

    As a retired newspaper reporter and editor who attended journalism school - no, not the University of Idaho - I'm in awe of Palin's ability to get a degree, given the quality of her prose. Still, I wish her the best and hope she can continue to "progress" herself. Perhaps she could start by learning that "progress" is not a transitive verb.

    Sarah Palin has no boundries, her accusations and statements are bazaar. I think the woman will do anything to keep herself on stage.

    Enough with Palin and her non sense, we already had to put up with her through the campaign, I am so proud of all of us who voted for our president, that now she can do what ever she is ridiculous, how could she ever though that the whole country would vote for more of the same, more hate, more fear, more division against minorities...... more hipocresy....the time has come that all of us....white, black, Gay and straight are respected by a government that will not exclude us because we are not....accepted by the religion because we are Gay, well I am happy there are no more Palins, no more Mcains...and most important NO MORE Bushes or Cheneys....

    I really don't care to Palin. She never did interest me during the election part of the fact that i am a democrat but still her voice and image just annoys me. And her coming out with a book is not the best way if you want people to stay out of your personal life.

    For God's sakes, the woman can't even remember which newspapers she reads. Her train of thought is rambling, her sentence structure poor, and her knowledge of anything of substance is non-existant. How in the world will she get it together to write a book? And who would want to read it????? Good Luck, Sarah!

    Sarah Palin write a book? Aaugh! Its bad enough to listen to her I sure don't want to read about her – especially when that old standby – Green Eggs and Ham – is still being sold and treasured. Sarah's book? In the immortal words of Dr. Seuss – I will not like it, Sam I am.

    I was really looking forward to her potential run in 2012 and getting to know the real Sarah Palin. If this is any indication of what she is really like, please just make go away.
