Palin lands on top of NY Times bestseller list

'Going Rogue' has landed on the top of the New York Times bestseller list.

(CNN) - In the wake of a high-profile two week publicity tour, Sarah Palin's memoir "Going Rogue: An American Life" has landed at the top of the New York Times bestseller list.

The former Alaska governor's book takes over the top spot previously held by tennis legend Andre Agassi's tell-all, "Open."

Another potential 2012 contender is also making a strong showing on this week's list:  Mike Huckabee's "A simple Christmas" is at No. 5.

The Associated Press reported last week Palin sold 700,000 copies of her memoir in its first week, a number that far surpasses most political books.  But it falls short of the more than 900,000 copies sold of Bill Clinton's 2004 memoir "My Life" during its debut week.

    I think it's rather sad anyone cares what Palin has to say or would support her in any way, such as buying her silly book. I mean I'm excited for all the dumb Palin quotes to come out – maybe make a calender out of them! Other than that, I have to say she's a dimwit. "If god intended us to be vegetarians, he wouldn't have made animals out of meat." That is one of the silliest and dumbest things I've ever heard!

    This woman is not fit to lead anyone. In a way I hope she runs so we can find out more about her Pentecostal church and her building that community center on someone else's land then having to buy that land at a much higher price. Don't forget about using public money to fly her children around the country.

    What a joke!

  2. What???

    All I can say is my 11 year old writes better fiction and uses proper grammar. Can I get him a book on the best seller's list?

    Please.....any baffoon that's willing to part with even a modest sum to buy this collection of toilet tissue and used cocktail napkins is in serious need of counseling or at minimum a 3rd grade education. I hope at some point these Palin supporters take a class in critical thinking to stave off a portion of the stupidity.

    Clinton she is not and I bet his book was a book and not a pack of attack dogs and lies. Like him or not he had more common sense then to write a book that was rogue.

  4. CNN afraid of a liberal post

    Even with all the lies she should pay the real writer, a lot of money. But next time she should get someone to write a book for her who is truthful. But maybe not LIES ARE SELLING.
