Second Palin book due in November

Sarah Palin's second book will be titled 'America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag.'
Sarah Palin's second book will be titled 'America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag.'

(CNN) – Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will release her second book in November, publisher Harper Collins announced Wednesday.

"America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag " will include selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her-from the nation's founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies," the publisher said in a statement announcing the new book. "The book will also include portraits of some of the extraordinary men and women she admires and who embody her deep love of country, her strong rootedness in faith, and her profound love and appreciation of family. She will also draw from personal experience to amplify these timely (and timeless) themes-themes that are sure to inspire her numerous supporters and all readers across the country."

The second book was inspired by the people Palin met during her 35-city tour in support of her first book, "Going Rogue," Harper Collins also said. The upcoming book "celebrates the enduring strengths and virtues that have made this country great," the publisher added.

"America By Heart" will hit bookshelves on November 23, according to Harper Collins.

Palin has become one of the GOP's biggest stars since being tapped as Sen. John McCain's running mate during the 2008 presidential race. In addition to being an author, the former Alaska governor has become a sought after speaker and a contributor on Fox News. Given her popularity with the GOP's conservative base and with the Tea Party movement, Palin's political future remains the subject of speculation - with many political observers wondering whether her books, speeches, and television appearances are a precursor to a White House bid.

    Republicans have allowed this woman to waste 2 valuable years of their time while she goes around pandering for her own personal wealth, she's a fraud. Democrats don't allow this kind of pandering that clearly has nothing to do with politics, policies, jobs, education and our economy.

    The second book was inspired by the people Palin met during her 35-city tour in support of her first book, "Going Rogue." And by the fact that she realized there was still a few million dollars she hadn't sucked out of the pockets of the people who blindly follow this nimrod no matter what inanities spill from her lips. You betcha!

    "The second book was inspired by the people Palin met during her 35-city tour in support of her first book" and by Ms. Palin's deep desire to score as much cash as she possibly can before the American people discover that "he Empress wears no clothes".

    I don't consider Sarah Palin an author. Someone ghost wrote her last book. I don't begrudge her the money that she made on her last book, although I did not buy it nor did I read it. I consider her an ignorant woman and would not waste my time reading it nor the one that is coming out in November. She does nothing for me as a role model and I am really a bit tired of hearing about her. If in fact, she decides to run for officei n 2012 (God forbid), it will be hilarious. She has not gone to school so that her knowledge of basic facts would not be embarrassing to her or to others. And she surely still does not know enough about the many ideas that she would need to debate our President in any forthcoming debates. In other words, she would again be a laughingstock to the country. And I would hope by now that her following would have learned that she is nothing but a phony who is out to make money off of them (which is fine if that is what she wants to do), Although I have the feeling that they are still running after her as if she is a movie star. I have never understood why they have been drawn to her except that she pretends to be this home-grown country girl, which she is not. If her followers would think a minute they would realize that she is a millionaire and that she is duping them. She is not one of them and never has been.

    Make that money Ms. Palin off of your uninformed supporters. I wonder how much you are giving to charity? I am quite sure this book is full of lies like everything else you do.

    I guess when you quit your publicly elected office you have time to do such things...keep "going rogue"!

    You can't blame her for going back to the well for another drink of all that money. Her first (ghost written) book reportedly enriched her by nearly $ 10 million dollars so it's only to be expected that she'd do a round two!!

    My guess is that this one will be a total flop at the box office as her first one recieved awful reviews and was largely supported by her rabid fans.

    I'm sure the Dems are still clinging to the hope that she avoids another Katie Couric moment and by some miracle ends up on the 2012 ticket!!

    Didn't waste money on 1st one – won't waste money on this one.

    My own loves, children, life, are all I need to feel good about myself, family, country.

    She's a ditz that chases $$$$$$$ – how shallow.

    A real Patriot....A Big Star...An Avid Reader...Inspired by the Founding Fathers...who the heck believes this spit? I suppose without any new ideas someone just selected "excerpts" from sermons, poetry, and songs that could be plagiarized so Ms. Palin could stuff more bucks into her pockets? I hope she has an interesting ghost writer – maybe a 3rd book could be titled "My admiration for Ghost Writers"

    No doubt the Republican National Committee will dig deep into their pockets to buy enough copies to make sure it gets on the NY Times best seller list like her first book.

    Will this one also be "Ghostwritten", or will it include crayons.

    So it's a scrapbook of "stuff she likes"? What a piece of self-promotional crap. I mean really...write a godd-mn book or don't...but selling a bunch of stuff other people did that you like and collected under a cover with your picture on it...COMPLETE CRAP. Way to suck money out of your mindless zombie supporters with your celebrity status, Caribou Barbie. Kudos.

    So in other words, Sarah Palin couldn't get enough original content for the book ...and Harper Collins filled it with "the nation's founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs", I wouldn't waste the money.. that info will be out on the web the next day!

    Just wish she would go away, hasn't she taken enough money from people who for what ever reason choose to buy her book. Don;t believe a word the woman has to say and her hillbilly aproach insults my intelegence.
