Palin book cover unveiled

Sarah Palin’s new book will be released in November.
Sarah Palin’s new book will be released in November.

(CNN) - Get used to this image - it's a cover that will be gracing every bookstore come November.

Harper Collins Thursday unveiled the cover art for Sarah Palin's forthcoming work set to be released in late fall, "America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag."

The cover features a smiling Palin looking straight into the camera while donning a flag pin and flag-studded bracelet.

Harper Collins, the publishing behemoth behind Palin's wildly successful 2009 memoir Going Rogue, says the new book "ranges widely over American history, culture, and current affairs, and reflects on the key values-both national and spiritual-that have been such a profound part of Governor Palin's life and continue to inform her vision of America's future."

"Written in her own refreshingly candid voice, America By Heart 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," Harper Collins also said.

The official release date is scheduled for November 23, 2010 – almost a year-to-the-date of Going Rogue's debut. The date also coincides with what will likely be the begining of the next race for the White House. Of course, the former Alaska governor has not indicated whether she plans to be a presidential candidate.

    CNN cut the photo off. It doesn't show the ridiculous flag bracelet and flag pin.

    Palin is predictable that she probably my favorite comedian.

    Ha, ha, ha – you used "Palin" and "profound" in the same sentence! Thanks for the laugh!

    The sheer thought of Ms. Palin ranging "widely over American history, culture, and current affairs, and reflects on the key values-both national and spiritual" is a very scary thing. Now that she can put herself off as historian, culture vulture, and spiritual adviser is
    perfect sign of how low America has sunk.
    God save us from this woman.

    "America By Heart 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"

    - Maybe she'll be able to tell us what newspapers she read them from this time.

    Another doorstop for the Republican offices. They bought all of her last books to make it a bestseller but couldn't even give them away. I hope they waste what little money the RNC has on this next moron edition.
    Some people will buy anything.

    Amazing that anyone would be foolish enough to buy a book written by a borderline idiot.
    Perhaps she does appeal to rednecks and inbreds.

    If the locations selling this garbage have a hint of decency, they'll treat it like pornography...put it behind the counter out of sight or put paper over the cover so we don't have to see that stupid woman's face.

    "...in her own refrshingly candid voice..."? hahaha I'd be surprised if she even knew what's in the book. I really hope she'll run. I want to see her in an open debate or in an interview that's not part of the right wing propganda machine.

    Well there's one item that definitely WON'T be on my Christmas wish list this year. Who really cares what she has to say about anything?

    any moron can run for president.

    even one who quit her job halfway
    through it.

    you'd have to be an idiot to think
    this nitwit isn't.

    Sarah Palin has certainly put some life into the Republican Party and might help some Republicans get elected. She turned what could have been fleeting fame into a bonanza for herslf and her family. Fine.
    What troubles me is that some portion of Americans actually think she should run for the Presidency in 2012 ! This beautiful and dynamic woman is uneducated, blissfully uninformed on international matters and doesn;t care. Read GAME CHANGE. When prepping for the McCain campaign she did not know why we have a North and South Korea or what the Federal Reserve does. She could not tell anyone what books or journals she reads ! (My guess is very little.) She is an attractive novelty, nothing more. To quote someone else, if she looked like Golda Meir she would have disappeard long ago. Dangerous !

    Sarah Palin "writes" a book once a month. Who cares? It's all about hauling in money while she is still young and FOX News Corp is footing the bill. This woman can't spell.

    Ghost writers and a soft-focus air brushed photograph of an attractive middle aged woman wearing expensive hair extensions still will not make a silk purse out of a political pig's ear. Sara Palin was unqualified to be in national politics and will remain unqualified. Self-promotion and its successful coupled pair, fame and wealth, are not the indicators of personal political qualification; rather, they indicate the qualifications of Palin's dreaded "elites", her public relations team, her writers, her photographers and her decorum coaches. All of these people are infinitely more qualified to be engaged in national political debates than Palin ever will be.

    Yawn... another waste of trees. Seems to be a trend these days: revisionist history all wrapped up in the dubious populism of the folksy, rural, feel good, neo-fascist middle America everyman aesthetic. Does anyone else smell moose strudel?

    She will be a factor in 2012. without McCain things might have had a better out come for her in 2008.

    Is it not time to completely forget about this woman? She is not a role model for anyone or anything for that matter but she continues to get attention. It blows me away that this is what we pay attention to. Please wake up people. Take control of your own lives and quit waiting for someone to do it for you. Once we decide to make these people do honest work we wont give them the avenue to bamboozle us with there nonsense. She is playing off our weaknesses.

    She's living proof of the old PT Barnum rule about a sucker being born every minute; in her case, there are two categories of sucker: 1. her deluded fans, who are blinded by their irrational hatred of Obama, the government, democrats, liberals and by their intolerant and xenophobic distortions of both Christianity and conservatism, and 2. Sara Palin himself, who was suckered, 1st by the cynical McCain campaign and later by the Tea Party and by Fox News, into believing her own hype; she's a true dunderhead, and that fact that she has had several "books" published by a mainstream press says a lot about the sad, corporately fueled state of our nation's intellectual life.

    What a sick joke!
