Sarah Palin’s book an immediate top seller

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (pictured below) has completed her memoir and it is ready for the printer.

The book is called, "Going Rogue: An American Life" (cover is shown at left).

Two days after the release date was announced, it became the top seller at both Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.

Politico.com has an article at the link below that reports about the Palin book that has “taken off like a rocket.”

HarperCollins will print 1.5 million copies for the book’s first run, the same number that was printed for late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s memoir "True Compass."

Kennedy’s book, published earlier this month, currently stands at number six on the Amazon list.

A publishing industry source told POLITICO that they "cannot remember a non-fiction book taking off like this in the pre-order market. It became number one only a couple of hours after nothing more than a date announcement. It is truly unprecedented."

Much of the 400-page book is based on journals Palin kept during her vice-presidential run.

Palin backers hope the book will help prevent the leftist media from incorrectly framing the discussion about what she believes and stands for.

It should slow them down when it comes to what they allow our country to hear and see about Sarah.

From a Lucianne commenter:

While ACORN was busy committing nationwide vote fraud on behalf of Democrats, the media was busy investigating Sarah Palin's daughter.

While Obama was absorbing Rev. Wright's anti-American hate sermons, the media was investigating Sarah Palin's infant son, Trigg.

While the media was whitewashing the hateful lunacy of Bill Ayers and Rashid Khalidi, they were investigating Sarah Palin's wardrobe expenditures.
