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."

    CNN: Please desist from following this irrelevant fodder. Are you seriously thinking the more we know of her, the more credibility she deserves? Stop endorsing her!

    Sarah, you need to take breaks every chance you get. When another year passes you'll will be steady on the road gettting rid of the Obamination we have in the White House. Never Again will America be this dumb.

    Can CNN please take a long break from reporting ANYTHING Sarah Palin. At least put her in the entertainment section with Britney and Paris.

    Her book is hilariously filled with misinformation. The really odd thing is she goes on and on about her special needs baby... yet never mentions her son anymore. Something tells me she was ashamed of him and shipped him off overseas for a reason....

    Oh, and nobody cares about her anymore.

    Mrs. Palin, today I am going to put politics aside like we all should today, and I am going to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving. If you have a roof over your head, food to eat, water to drink, and a bed to sleep on, you are luckier than over 1 billion people on this earth. Please be thankful today, and please put politics aside. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    Rather than complain about CNN giving Palin all this space, I've decided to read the articles and esp. the comments as entertainment, as comic relief. Ya can't make this up, folks! She thinks she's real! We can watch the wreck as it happens. Can't imagine what happens next. One of these days she'll come out with something so even-more mindless or disturbing or damaging that she'll self-destruct. I guess CNN sees her as a (forgive the metaphor) cash-cow, since she does get attention.

    Must we put up with CNN constantly promoting Sarah? You are the only news media talking about her today. This is Thanksgiving, a special day that needs no additional "turkeys"

    Only CNN follow Sarah Palin so closely. No other new media care to print her every move, not even FOX; I wonder why CNN think everyone care what she does or not do. I am sick and tired of reading about this sick woman.

    She reminds me of George Bush, who became the first president by only 537 votes. No wonder the country crashed and burned under the moronic leadership of ignorant people. Get a life CNN and give us a break; write real news and not insane articles of this sick woman.

    WHO CARES what the Palins are doing today? Do you seriously think this is "political news"? Why not just start a Palin Ticker page of her own? This is NOT political news!

    gosh even when this woman takes a so-called break she makes headlines here. And Sarah complains about her treatment by the "evil left wing media"?

    Palin is a lying quitter, thats why her Republican/Conservative "followers" like her.

    I hear her work of fiction is selling for $4.95 on the closeout rack at K-Mart.

    GOP: Evolve or die.

    She will need a turkey break, all liars need to re group and make sure she has cover stories to cover all her lies. At least the break will save some emissions on the enviroment from that huge fuel burning bus.We should all give Thanks that when her mouth opens during her break it will be for eating instead of inciting hate and divide.I am truly thankful I won't have to hear her screecing lying voice for a day !
