Palin gives details on book tour

Palin reveled details of her book tour on Facebook.

(CNN) - Sarah Palin says she's gearing up for her highly anticipated book tour later this month, writing on Facebook Tuesday she is "very, very excited to travel the country as she promotes her forthcoming memoir, "Going Rogue: An American Life."

The former Alaska governor hinted she'd likely sit down with a string of friendly faces during the tour that begins in two weeks, a list of conservative television hosts that include Fox's Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck. She also wants to appear with Fox host Greta Van Susteren.

Palin added she'll likely appear on the radio programs of conservative talkers Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Dennis Miller, and Laura Ingraham, and Tammy Bruce.

The former Republican vice presidential nominee already has a high-profile sit down on The Oprah Winfrey Show November 16 - the day before her memoir is released.

The Alaska Republican said she also wants to sit down with legendary interviewer Barbara Walters during the tour.

    "Sarah Palin should try to tread water against a host who doesn't share her ultra-conservative views. She needs to be able to prove herself against someone who won't nod in agreement with everything she says. She needs to go on the Howard Stern show and get some much needed respect. There is no respect in only speaking with those whom agree with you. He will take her out of her element and show who she really is."

    Yeah! Like Obama has!

  2. Canadian POV

    When the author doesn't even realize the meaning of the title of her own book, it speaks volumes about her shallow intellect. If she does know what going rogue means and is proud to call that an American Life then it is no wonder that the rest of the world despises the US when the GOP speak for the nation. She doesn't stand a chance to become president but then again neither did W but they had the power and means to steal that election. In the event that Palin was elected president the allies of the US would very, very quickly evaporate because the civilized western world would have no choice but to form its own alliance to protect the planet from the bible thumping nut jobs.

    She seized oil company profits, and redistributed the wealth to Alaska's citizens.

    She's a closet socialist.

    I can't wait to not see Sarah Palin. Wow, how exciting it will be to avoid any show she goes on. The thought of seeing her in person just makes me feel ill.

    I really hope that when Sarah talks to Oprah, Oprah asks her the one question of which I've always wanted to hear the answer to. That would be "WHY did she allow at her rallies for people to yell racists and hateful things at then candidate Obama and she nothing about it?" Even Sen McCain put a stop to such foolishness while Sarah Palin allowed it to continue. And if she gives the answer that she wasn't aware it was going on, then she will hold far less creditability with me than she does now.

    Perhaps Ms. Palin and her publishing team should look to references other than X-men comic books and 80s cop movies as inspiration for brand-naming their product. However, given the fact that the book is ready for print, I think these definitions of 'rogue' from Webster's dictionary are quite fitting (thanks Mary from Oregon):

    Main Entry: rogue
    Function: noun
    Date: 1561
    5. rogue(n): an individual exhibiting a chance and usually inferior biological variation.

    Better yet:

    Main Entry: rogue
    Function: adjective
    Date: 1872
    1 : resembling or suggesting a rogue elephant especially in being isolated, aberrant, dangerous, or uncontrollable
    2 : corrupt, dishonest

    Put some lipstick on that! (HA-HA)

    I see she struck again! She stuck her unwelcome nose into upstate New York politics and destroyed what was left of the Republican party there. Keep up the good work Sarah!

    "selling lies" should be your book title Palin

    You should be able to read a book (without pictures) before you pretend to write one.
    The trees that will be sacrificed for this artificial tome would have been better used as, say, toilet paper.

    There is a saying. Better to remain silent when people think you are stupid rather than speaking and removing all doubt. Speak Sarah, Speak! Sarah, Rush, Glen, etc. These are the voices of the new Republican Party. What a bunch of hateful dolts.

    She's smart, she's the most talked about conservative in her party, and everything she does gets a lot of reaction (both good and bad). I hope her book sells millions and I hope she finds a prominent role in her party.

    whats going to be funny is that nobody or should I say No real everyday Americans want, will read, or are intrested in its book. Even funnier would be if no one showed up for its book signing, Though I did visit the christian coalition website and I tell ya they love it. They think it has a chance to win in 2012 and think its inteligent. these are some really stupid people. well it said it would like to be interviewed by barbara but barbara does not want to interview it. And as for the drug addict limpo, he's to scared to interview anybody. he never has anyone on his show so why change tactics now.

    Hopefully Oprah and Barbara will ask Sarah some tough questions. The others won't. Republicans are very foolish if they hitch a ride on her wagon.

    I am a democrat and you want to know what bothers me about seeing her anywhere - her stupidity is an insult to my intelligence as an American and a woman - she belongs on Jerry Springer and nothing better than that kind of trash show will ever suit her – so plaster her all over the place and run her in 2012 - the media will love it!

    The real person they should all be talking to is the person who wrote the book because you can bet is was not Sarah Palin!
    So, afraid to talk to Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow et al those who would ask her serious questions- NO – she chooses to talk to the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly. This woman is a joke! She quit on the state of Alaska to have someone write a book for her and she reaps the $$$$$ -

    Do any of you libertards find it strange that we know more about Sarah Palin than we do about Hussein Obama? That is the power of the state run media he has set up and you fools believe them.
