What would you like to read in Palin's memoir?

FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:

Sarah Palin found being governor of Alaska was too difficult and quit halfway through her first term. But she has managed to write her memoir in just four months. Truly amazing by any literary standards I'm familiar with.

The title of Mrs. Palin's book… due out a scant four months after the book deal was announced, is "Going Rogue: An American Life."

The publisher, Harper, is moving up the release date of the 400-page book to November 17, so it can be on the shelves in time for the holiday book-buying season.

Harper says, "Governor Palin has been unbelievably conscientious and hands-on at every stage, investing herself deeply and passionately in this project." What they don't say is that she wrote the book. She did spend several weeks with a "collaborator" in San Diego after she quit the governor's job.

The publisher is expecting big things of Palin's book - ordering a first printing of 1.5 million copies.

The former vice presidential nominee was roundly criticized during the campaign for being inexperienced; and toward the end, John McCain aides complained she was not sticking to the campaign's plans… and had become a diva.

Since the election, Palin has been the subject of several ethics probes in Alaska, given speeches in the U.S. and overseas, and of course, has had her family drama sprayed all over the media.

The thing I'm most interested in is whether she will go on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric to promote the book when it comes out.

Here’s my question to you: What would you like to read about in Sarah Palin's memoir?

Interested to know which ones made it on air?

B. from Maine writes:
Betcha she had someone write it for her. Betcha it was someone who speaks English, puts sentences together, and was an English major. Let's hope she makes a mint of money from all the ignorant conservatives out there and then retires forever and ever. Amen

Jim writes:
Jack, If I wanted to even spend one minute of my life reading something shallow, trite, self-serving, poorly written and generally useless, I'd get a transcript from any news program on Fox.

Nancy writes:
Mr. Cafferty, Do you suppose Sarah Palin is much more intelligent than you are? Perhaps that's why she was able to write her memoirs in less time than you. She probably didn't need all the help that you did in getting published.

John writes:
"Going Rogue: An American Life" … I think someone put an extra "f" in the title.

Brett from Denver writes:
I would like to know what it's like for a 1950s librarian/secretary-type to live in the 21st century. I get the impression she's having a hard time of it.

Sue from Los Angeles writes:
How she really felt about the biased treatment she received from the media, especially Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric. What she really thought about McCain and how he ran the campaign. How she felt about SNL's portrayal of her. How she felt about the constant flow of lies regarding her family.

Isaac writes:
I just can't wait to color the pretty pictures.

Matthew from Orange, California writes:
I'd like to read the "75% off" sticker on the cover of the book in January.

    Jack,

    You are right about the timeframes.. 4 months is an amazing amount of work to complete a set of memoirs. I can't even predict how many boxes of crayons it took her to finish the work in that amount of time.

    Doesn't someone have to have something to remember and share that's worthwhile to write a 'memoir'??? Oh Jack, you make me smile!

    I'd like to read that she's retiring from public life because she values the quality of life for her children and that she realizes that her baby needs her 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    I'd like to read about her early life philosophy, if she was interested in big things that were going on in her day as a teenager, or, just if she was concerned with winning this or that beauty contest. Also, I would like to read about how many boyfriends she has had, and what achievements she has oversaw as governor of Alaska.

    I would hope she would hold the media accountable for the " search and destroy" mission they were/ are on. The media lied about her, her children, her husband, and political positions she held.

    Jack, something tells me you and I will be reading this “memoir” right about the same time – when hell freezes over. (I'd rather see you do the book tour interview.)

    Hey Jack,
    I would love for the publishers to highlight which parts of the book – whether they are full complete sentences or paragraphs – were actually penned by Sarah Palin. Just want to know if she can put a sentence or paragraph together.

  47. Star Taylor

    In a word....NOTHING. What a joke she was. As a professional woman in a male-driven industry, her tactics only lessened our appearance and cause. Additionally, writing a book in 4 months? Must be thin in content.

  49. yvette from Casper Wyoming

    NOT A DANG THING! About the only thing that broad contributed to this world is the ability to interject her name in a criticism of another person. For instance: Jack, this question you just asked makes you look as crazy as Sarah Palin.

  50. Mark from Naperville Illinois

    Oh man, isn't that sort of like asking about the nutritional value in a bag of Pork Rinds? I think I would read it for the same reason I slow down at gaze at the aftermath of traffic accidents...sort of a morbid curiousity that drives me to view the unviewable, or in this case, read that which cannot be comprehended.

  51. Matt in Omaha

    As a Republican non-fan of Palin, I don't really have an interest in reading the former Alaska governor's book, but I see nothing wrong with her hiring a professional "ghost" writer or collaborative writer. This is America where we have First Amendment rights, just like you have Jack. A lot of people no doubt like Mrs. Palin, and will enjoy hearing what she has to say.

    September 29, 2009 at 5:11 pm |
  52. Jordan

    Jack, I would not give Palin a dime to read her book. But if I did, I would love to read if she will be having turkey or moose for thanksgiving.....That is how little her thoughts mean to me.

  53. J.R. Springfield, MO

    I would not like to read Sarah Palin's memoir at all. In my opinion, she is an ignorant moron who never should've been given a book deal in the first place.

    Hey Jack,
    I don't expect to read anything. I won't buy it. I imagine it has 400 pages because of all the pictures!

    I would like to read how she thought she could be Vice President but couldn't even complete her job as Governor... She would have better served by rejecting the original offer, but I guess she wouldn't get that book money so it is gonna pay off in the end for the Palin family after all.

    I would not even bother to pick it up and read the cover. She could not finish an elected position-a promise to serve; so I doubt that she wrote much of "her" book!

  70. Evelyn Panter

    Sarah Palin couldn't write anything I would be interested in reading. She's a typical politician who let down her own people in Alaska to become John McCain's last hope. Now she's own tour promoting her own agenda. She's in the same right-wing catagory as our own Newt Gingrich here in Georgia.

    Not only would I never read a book written by a woman in who knows less facts about the things she rambles on about I wish she would go back to where she came from and stay there maybe read a newspaper and learn the real facts!!!!!

    September 29, 2009 at 5:12 pm |

    Jack, I would like Gov. Palin to indicate in the book, which newspaper she reads now...

  76. Mark (Newburgh, NY)

    I'd like to read her explanation of how being halfway through your first term as governor makes you a lame duck. Sure, she was lame...and a quack at that, but from a literal standpoint, she was NOT a lame duck. Mostly I'd like to read that she is leaving the public arena for good. Wishful thinking much?

    September 29, 2009 at 5:12 pm |
  77. Albert K.. L.A, CA

    Palin should explain her record of never staying in one place long enough to finish what she began there. Like transferring to five colleges for a four year degree, quitting the Alaska Oil Commission, mayor and governor positions only to become a freelance political commentator, which is like being a small town community organizer but with no actual organizing responsibilities. She should explain her need for appearing on stages – her church, TV sports caster, Miss Alaska, and the political stage.

    Jack, the one thing about Palin that was strange to me was the fact that she and her family kept her pregnancy secret almost right up until the time of Trig's birth. I hope she reveals why they did that in her memoirs.

    There is "nothing" to read in any books with an author name Sarah Palin, cause they will all be the kind with the big pop out pictures.

  95. Gerard Canta

    What's to read? Every move she made was told to us. Every stupid thing she said was analyzed. I bet it has lots of pictures in the center for those who thought she was foxy. Republicans will put it on their shelves and hope to have it signed one day. I know she couldn't write it. I also bet she can't even read it.

    I'd like to read about the time when she embraces her true nature, dons the clown shoes and joins Ringling Bros. Although, I'd feel bad for the circus industry...

  98. Peter

    Jack, it is a lot easier to write a book if you are using crayons and one syllable words. In any case, there is nothing I need to know about her life. However, I would be happy to host a book-burning.

    September 29, 2009 at 5:13 pm |
  99. Patricia/Georgia

    I'd like her to find time to read to her child she so often mentions. There is nothing in her book which would interest me. She has an ego the size of the state she ran away from so no I am not interested in a quitter.

    No matter WHAT I'd like to read, I'm sure it will be full of more nonsensical dribble. Let's all hope and pray she did turn it over to a ghost writer.Otherwise ,the book stores will have stacks of $1.00 specials.

    Jack, the only thing worth reading in her booklet would be how she plans to disappear. I've known who she is for over a year too much longer than I'd have prefered. How she was ever elected governor of Alaska is a mystery considering that she's not qualified to be dog catcher.

    You're "kidding" right? LOL!!!! I'm amazed that she even knows how to read and write. I guess IF I had to read anything in the "ahem" memoir it would be THE END....

  113. Eileen Peabody MA

    Nothing.

    I suppose I would like to read she will go away and we will never hear from her again....but she took an oath to serve as Governor and that promise fell by the side of the road.

    So, what I would like to hear is for not since it's all about jobs and if the country should bless her with any success, and also.

  116. Gregory Young

    Hey Jack, I heard that Palin is also working on a movie deal. Forest Gump is going to direct it. There's going to be a little twist in the plot. In her version of the movie John McCain will be the dummy acting as her running mate. The movie has a happy ending, because Palin who can see Russia from her back porch will actually travel there. And if all goes well she won't come back.

    September 29, 2009 at 5:14 pm |
  117. Jim Taylor

    I would like to read in HER book that she is completely leaving the public forum and moving as far back into Alaska, away from humanity, as possible. Then possibly we will not hear from her again.

  118. Bill fm PA

    Jack,
    It would be just great if Ms. Palin just went home to Alaska and took care of her children and grandchildren. I would very much like to hear from her in five or ten years about the development and growth of her grandson. Nothing else would be of any interest or substance.

    Here we go again. i get the feeling that certain individuals higher than our government are deathly afraid of Sarah Palin. Otherwise why all the attacks on her character? Is it the fact that the powers that be would not like a woman in the office of Vice President or President? I would vote for her in a minute and I will read all of her book.

    Unless it has some good salmon recipes in it, I would have not interest in buying. Why would I want to hear the imaginings of a ghost writer using the only thing of value Sarah Palin has... her name. She had more experience as a college student and sports reporter than as a politician. So no thank you, I am using my money in this recession for the CNN iPhone App... a far better purchase!

    Do you suppose she would have instructions in her novel, oops book, for that amarous wink she so often gives? Heck, I'm 78 years old, my "come on" list gets shorter with every passing day,.....for that I may read her book....or maybe ....well we won't go there.

    I would like to read how she plans to return to politics after making a mockery of herself after she stepped down as Governor. Anyone who believes that money was not the number one factor in that decision needs to have their head examined. Now we are seeing the real truth behind her departure from office. If she was truly invested in helping people as a public official, she would have stayed and tried to work through the problems and not left to make money.
    What's next for her? Her own show on Fox News?

    Jack I think the question should be if we want to read her memoir. NO, because it must be empty and we all know that. It will obviously be a collection of her odd rethorics ( death panel, plot on grand mama, PALINg around terrorists etc...). Time is precious and nobody wana waist his.

    I'd like to read about why she thought it was good for Alaska to quit as Governor halfway through her first term, only to immediately fly to California to start working on her book. I'd also like to read a discussion - complete with economists she can cite who agree with her - about why exactly she thinks too much regulation got us into this financial mess, when most educated economists believe the opposite. I just read this over, and it makes me laugh. Of course these things will not be answered in her book. –Houston, TX

    Well, at first my thoughts were that I wouldn't dare read a book from Palin, but than I thought to myself, I wonder what this chick has left to say. I mean haven't we covered every thought of hers. If I read the book and there is a good chance I'd buy it, I would love to hear her apologize for demonizing people or ideas she doesn't fully understand or have no clue about.

    Nothing absolutely nothing , she rambles so , I do not have any interest in written ramblings from her.

    Jack you know she did not write it herself! Memoirs , what a joke , she is not old enough for memoirs! Now Jack I would read McCains!

    And the publisher will make sure it is of interent to the right wingers, but I get enough of that just in the news and on the internet, so my money will not be spent to read anything about Palin.
    I get enough Palin as it is and wish she would just go away!

    I wouldn't like to read anything in Palin's memoir. There are too many other books existing that have real relevant information for me to even pick up her work ....If It can be called HER writings.

    I just can't understand why the news media just doesn't let her disappear into obscurity. Her daily appearance in the news says something about our priorities....but maybe she's still being presented for comic relief or as a far right reference point.

    Sarah Palin demonstrates her ignorance every time she opens her mouth. I am not interested in reading anything attributed to her. The publisher says she was "unbelievably conscientious and hands-on", but was she candid, honest and introspective? I think not. I hope the book is a flop, otherwise we'll never be rid of this woman!

    Jack,

    I'd like to read that Sarah Palin decided to resign from all public activities since I'm nothing more than an embarrasement to myself and anyone who says to the contrary should be incarcerated. I've embarrassed my family and country, including the McCains for running with the presidential campaign. The best I could do is give a public apology for opening my big fat mouth.

    Hi Jack........Ahhh, one is assuming that I would spend the money
    on the book, or drive to the library to rent it........WRONG !

    There is nothing........absolutely nothing I care to read from her, about her, or by her. Just about the time I think she is retreating to the back pages of the newspaper, she's baaaaaaack. Then comes the circuit...all national networks, plus talk shows, plus late night, and on and on.

    If this is a poor sell, perhaps she will use some of the recently earned $300,000.00 + to purchase the surplus.

    Will there ever be a period after the name Palin ?

    I would like for her to admit the following:

    #1-She's a hypocrite for making a welfare state even more welfare oriented by taking windfall profits from oil companies & turning it into an equally distributed monthly check.

    #2-She's an idiot for doing the above & decrying even the thought of it being done, nationally.

    #3-She's a typical politician who couldn't do her job worth a flip, then decided to quit when the going got rough & profit from the notariety.

    Anything less than the above is unacceptable.

    Nothing. I want to hear nothing from this woman. Please allow me to quote your article Jack, "Sarah Palin found being governor of Alaska was too difficult and quit halfway through her first term." I want to hear from the person who IS doing the job of Governor. Who is the Governor of Alaska now? Does anyone even know who he is? Why are we NOT hearing about Sean Parnell; who seems up to the job? But we are suppose to be interested in this woman's opinions and activities. She couldn't even write her own book. In school that is called cheating. In the publishing world that is called profits. PLEASE! She is a quitter and a cheat, a simple undisputed fact. Can we please turn the page and move on?

    I really admire Palin for having her downs syndrome baby. Don't know if I could have made that decision.

    In all the furor about the politics of Sarah Pallin her treatment of the wolves of Alaska is usually forgotten. Ms. Pallin has personally shot wolves from the air. Her Fish and Game department killed a mother wolf then shot all her cubs in their den. Wolf cubs are routinely poisoned in their dens. Ms. Pallin arranged for $400,000 from state funds to be used for killing wolves. What's important here is her deep ignorance about how an ecosystem works or any tiny bit of knowledge about the environment. It is well known that people who love to kill animals are often abusive to humans as well. No wonder Pallin's family is such a mess. Her ex son in law says she takes very little interest in her children. Instead she spends time in her room watching TV leaving them to raise themselves. This ignorant awful woman is a menace. I'm not going to read any part of her, no doubt, awful book.

    I would love to read about all the times she has saved the "real" America. Like from putin, the bridge to nowhere and Big Government. And also how she had to quit mid-term for the people of Alaska.

    Jack, I would like to hear (I will not buy the book to read) that she is going to move as far back into the interior of Alaska, far away from all humanity, and live her life out in the wilderness with the rest of the animals.

    Absolutely nothing! McCain was right when he said she had become a diva and that stands. Politicians should not make money off their scandals and should not be put in celebrity status. If they choose to, most of their profits should be donated to families in poverty in the United States. Yes I said poverty, remember that word? It seems almost forgotten. Take care of the people America!

  206. John A. Thomas

    It will not be difficult to determine whether Ms. Palin wrote the book or not. If it interesting, engaging and makes good, common sense we'll know that she definitely used a "ghost" writer.

    The title itself is laughable! The woman couldn't govern her own state for a full year. Instead of being entitled "Going Rogue: An Americal Life" she should have called it "Getting Out - Before I Made a COMPLETE Fool of Myself."

    She's all talk. I'm a Republican, but I gotta say - this lady is pathetic!

    I'd like to read how stupid she honestly believes her "supporters" really are. "Heaven" knows she is the typical "user" of simple people who do not think for themselves, allowing themselves to be led by such as Palin.
    She realized the money to be made if she got the Governorship of Alaska out of her way. She received better offers for more money... so good for her. I only wish she was worth the price.

Hopefully sh will finally answer what a V.P. does and have the right answer. And as for it being a 400 page book, knowing her, Ii bet she googled herself, and just cut and pasted all the good things that were said about her and thats how it got finshed in 4 months.

  215. LaVern Strawn

    If I did read it (and I won't), I wouldn't believe it anyway. She is sure to give herself credit for good things and blame others for her own faults, which is what I have heard thus far from her public appearances. Since she is still lying about important issues in her public speaking, I would imagine her book is full of lies. I'm just not interested in more lies from the Republican side of life.

    Nothing other than as much crap as her comments. Palin will draw attention to herself, but to verify whether she'll make sense, just go through her numerous comments from the failed McCain campaign to her sudden death in Alaskan politics.

    Well, at first my thoughts were that I wouldn’t dare read a book from Palin, but than I thought to myself, I wonder what this chick has left to say. I mean haven’t we covered every thought of hers. If I read the book and there is a good chance I’d buy it, I would love to hear her apologize for demonizing people or ideas she doesn’t fully understand or have no clue about.

    I would like to know if she was pregnant when she married Todd. During the campaign it came out from her father that she was dating this hot new basketball player. Then suddenly they eloped and had to go across the street to get witnesses for the ceremony from a retirement home. Then just exactly 8 months later their first born came along. The Obama campaign would not allow us to bring up family and because with her daughter pregnant this was an interesting PATTERN, I've always wondered if it's true. How old is the younger daughter? And is Sarah still declaring abstinence as her philosophy with this one? Good luck. Now, I know accidents happen. It's what all parents fear for their daughters. How many "mistakes" before it's stupidity or trailer park trash?

    I would like to read if she thinks she is smarter than a fifth grader. From all that I have heard from her since the election and before, she isn't. She constantly complains and whines. I wonder if John McCain had won the presidency, would she have quit as the Vice President after one year if the job was too strenuous for her. Obviously, she cannot handle the pressure. In my opinion, she is the dumbest candidate since President Nixon. You couldn't pay me enough to want to read her book because it seems that she is all about the money, honey.!

    I would like to read how she has decided to never run for public office again. I pray this book is just a shot at her 15 minutes of fame and she will be done with it. She should disappear from the media like she did after that Katie Couric interview during the presidential election. The best thing about having Sarah Palin around is watching her being made fun of on SNL. Jack, it took me a hour to figure out I was watching Tina Fey.

    You left wingers in the media are so afraid of Sarah Palin that you will go to any length to diss her. But she's not down and out yet. She has struck a chord with mainstream America and there's nothing I'd like to read more in her memoir than she's making a run for the presidency in 2012.

    Not expecting anything contemplative or insightful – after all, what can you produce in 4 mo. beyond a tabloid article – I'd like Palin to confess she had self-knowledge of being a total fraud, from the McCain campaign up to now and into the future. She selling a bill of goods to the public for her own profit. The book should contain an apology and a promise to retire from public life immediately as she does nothing but stir the pot with the Fundamentalists.

    I still have a problem understanding why the nation and the world thought Alaskans liked Palin.

All I would like to hear from her is that when she is ice fishing this winter she will be testing the strength of the ice lead. Do I hear early break up? Global warming, anyone?

    I would like to read she is going to stay home in Alaska and stop making a fool of herself with her speeches that have all the substance of a tub of soapsuds...Her extremely limited education does not provide her with enough knowledge to back up anything she says. She needs to stay home and get her own house in order. She can in no way solve the world's problems; many men with a lot more brain cells than she has (approximately 2) have tried it, and she is not even close to being in their league.

    Ah Jack... you've missed the point!

    400 pages makes the book just the right thickness to:

    1 – Fit inbetween the concrete block and the trailer bottom, stopping that annoying tilt that makes makes the bobblehead collection go crazy.

    2 – Prop that broken window sash open

    3 – Replace the missing leg on the butt-sprung easy chair on the porch, and finally

    4 – Provide a month's worth of paper for the outhouse

    I hope the book is a huge flop, and that Sarah Palin finally fades from memory, never to be mentioned on CNN again.

    It's too much to expect Sarah Palin to have anything truly significant to say, but perhaps I'd enjoy reading it if the title was, "Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Alaska anymore." Or perhaps, "There's no place like Nome, there's no place like Nome."

    I wouldn't read her book if it was free unless someone guaranteed me she was leaving the US and I never had to hear or see her on any media outlet again. Shame on her for her divisive politics most recently scaring old people with death panels. I think she also owes all Americans an apology for the comments during the election about
    good to be in the real America during some of her campaign stops.I also saw her speaking at a rally during the 08 presidential campaign where someone in the crowd yelled out "kill him"(referring to Obama) and she said nothing to admonish this kind of behavior. Sarah Palin needs to just go away and shut up.

    Such a book would be read by the curious and those who seek out the notoriety of people in the moment such as former Gov. Palin.
    She was not qualifed to be a Vice President, and certainly not a President of our country. Even to those who may diagree with this position, what substantive value could she possibly provide?

    I would suggest her only motive is monetary.

    The Truth! For almost a year we have listened to all her lies and stories about her experience in foreign affairs and politics. We all found what she truely cares about, MONEY.
    Nothing this women has to say is of interest to me. I'm a 59 year old retired women and this women makes me ill. I can't believe anyone would pay one dime to read what she has to say. But then again I never thought GW Bush would ever be elected President, because of his lack of intelligence. This women also lacks intelligence. We all watched the Couric interview.

    This sounds like an ideal bathroom book. It sounds like the kind of droll nonsense you'd want to occupy your mind with for those idle couple of minutes while doing the needful....I'm sure the cover will be fairly attractive in hardbound...and nobody will really care what the subject matter is anyway, so what's the difference? Sarah Palin makes for good potty talk.

    I would like to read that she is retiring from public life and moving to Russia, which evidently she can see from her house, which is apparently 83 kilometers in the air, since that's how high she'd need to be to see the 700 statute miles to the border....

    Jack,

    I want to read about when she will be entering the convent and taking a vow of silence.

    I plan on purchasing the book. I'm sure it will be a good one. I'd like to see and read about her life in high school and the work she did afterward.

    Ms. Palin's autobiography and publisher Harper's first printing of 1.5 million copies demonstrates that mediocracy is valued over competence and success.
    I wrote my autobiography "Intrigue, Capitalism, Love – My True Story" a 4 year effort, 423 pages covering a huge success story and colossal achievements, but get no exposure.
    To answer your question, what could I possible learn from a total failure, absolutely nothing, but it appears that failure is rewarded, God help us.

    She's not smart enough to write anything worth reading.

    It depends on who she is using as a ghost writer. Otherwise, there is nothing that a Sarah Palin or a Michelle Bachmann for that matter could possibly contribute to anyone's erudition. What an embarrassment she has been to this country .....

    I wont read the darn thing, but maybe she can explain how to be a quieter and liar and still have people look up to her???

    Nothing... Absolutely nothing... Sara Palin's philosophies on foreign and domestic policy, or the lack there of, ruined any chances of me taking her seriously as a writer, let alone a future presidential hopeful. Here policies, rhetoric, and viewpoints are warped. Clearly, anyone who lies about seeing Russia from Alaska lacks the wherewithal to write a quality memoir.

    I would like to read her political obituary. She was nothing more than a last ditch effort to get attention for the Mcain campaign which backfired any way. Lets move on!!!!!!

    Thank God, just in time for Christmas. I was planning to make confetti out of that book for my Christmas decorations.
