Book on Palin Set For Release

How often do we hear about a former aide to one person or another writing a tell-all book, using it as a vehicle to possible fame and fortune? You have Andrew Young writing about democrat Presidential candidate John Edwards. Scott McClellan wrote about former two-term Republican President George Bush. Sometimes the book really is explosive as was the case with Young’s book on Edwards. Other times, it is a tempest in a teapot. McClellan’s book on Bush was really not all that revealing when it came right down to it.

The fact that former aide to Sarah Palin, Frank Bailey, is set to release a book soon is not news to most of us. News broke last Feb when a manuscript was “leaked” and the leftwing press got a hold of it. Now CNN is calling the soon to be released book a “chilling expose” on the former Governor of Alaska.  Based on what was leaked a couple of months ago, there had better be something better than Palin was “deeply exasperated with her political opponent” and the increased “attacks she faced after being tapped to be the GOP vice presidential nominee.” (Source: CNN)

There were some hints that her run for Governor may have broken some campaign laws back in 2006, but I think the leak was designed to make a mountain out of a molehill. The leftist press has been going after her since 2008 and they have little luck so far digging up any real dirt on Palin and her goings-on.

One thing that certainly needs to be pointed out and I was glad to see CNN also point this out, the co-authors might also have an axe to grind:

The book is also written by Jeanne Devon, a longtime critic of the former governor who publishes the anti-Palin blog Mudflats, and California author Ken Morris, who has written anti-Palin articles on his own website (Source CNN) (Note: PACNW Right did not include the links to the author’s websites).

Big thumbs up for Journalistic integrity.
