Palin takes brief break for Thanksgiving

Palin's book tour continues after the holiday.
Palin's book tour continues after the holiday.

(CNN) – Sarah Palin is taking a break from her marathon book tour to celebrate Thanksgiving with her family in Richland, Washington, her spokeswoman confirmed to CNN Wednesday.

Palin's parents are originally from the area, and an aunt of the former vice presidential candidate currently lives there.

But Palin won't be off the book trail for long: She's slated to sign books at a Hastings bookstore in Richland Sunday.

The menu at "Aunt Katie's house" isn't public, says Palin spokeswoman Meg Stapleton, "but there's no doubt there will be meat - right next to the mashed potatoes."

    When Palin takes a detour it is just following her mind. It wonders like that. She can take her time eating and return to the trail in 20 or 30 years.

  2. I've watched her long enough to know she is lying

    there is no break, as her dad said, 'she is re-loading'

    watch out America, the U.S. is one giant moose in her eyes and she is hoovering over us with her rifle

    no doubt she is really out scouting her next disabled citizen group to use for her advertisements to sell her book (that she didn't write but put her name on)

    GO SARAH GO, you know the truth, the libs are scared, no one but you is so smart

    I am Thankful for our Freedom of Speech so those with opposing views like Sarah Palin, still have the right to voice them.

    Unfortunately, we have an administration in place that if given the chance, would enact a law to prosecute anyone disaggreeing with their policies. This is a core reason why most Americans reject the thought of expanding Big Government and the undying liberal desire for more control of our lives and of course, increased taxes to pay for it.

    You most certainly deserve a break Sarah Palin. Every hard working, honest mother, wife and great American deserves a break. Enjoy!

  5. give me a break

    Glad to her she is taking a break. I am sick of hearing about her. You'd think she was an actual political leader.

    She's not. She's an ex mayor who quit her governorship and wrote a book. Oh, wait, the book was 90% ghost written.

    She's left no legacy in Alaska politics (unless you count the many ethics concerns that still continue today).

    So why is she on the political blog! She is merely entertainment. And I'll give her that – she is entertaining.

  8. PULEEEZZZ!! lets tell some truth

    Sarah did not write this book, and she does not read... How ironic that she would go on a book tour. People who buy this book don't have a clue about this person.. She is just a pretty face. There is nothing between her ears! nothing!!

    Thanks John McCain. If it weren't for you this idiot would still be unheard of. Next to Cheney this dummy has to be the worst VP pick in history.

    It's a shame that people who support Palin aren't smart enough to know that picking an unqualified moron (Bush?) can lead to disaster for this country.

    You are a joke Palin. I'd love to see you win the Republican nomination. It would be funny seeing a clown like you try to debate the ever-eloquent President Obama.
