Palin to visit Fort Hood during book tour

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Palin will visit the Army base in early December."]WASHINGTON (CNN) - Sarah Palin will travel to the Fort Hood Army post in early December as part of her national book tour, Palin's publisher confirmed to CNN Friday.

The December 4 visit will come roughly one month after a mass shooting on the base that left 13 people dead and 38 wounded.

The stop, which had not been previously announced, is scheduled for the same day Palin signs books at a store in in the Dallas area.

The former Alaska governor is also making an appearance at Fort Bragg in North Carolina during her tour.

The visit was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

    I don't think this is a wise move on Palin's part. She needs to fire whoever suggested this visit. It'll be twisted into a story about how she is using the tragedy to sell books for her own enrichment. Visit the base after more time has passed and not as part of a book tour.

    Just what the troops at Fort Hood need is a negative person such as Palin visiting them.

    Excuse me, but isn't she just a private citizen at the moment?
    What gives her the right to access to a military base that should be a Devcon Delta? Then any citizen should have that same access, and that makes it unsafe. Sorry, but you gave up your status as a governor and as a public figure the day you resigned.

    She should be denied access. PUBLIC CITIZEN SARAH.

    Palin will not go to a large city. She is afraid the media might ask her a tough question such as what day or year is this. I plan on writing a book also the title is called Nothing.

    No one cashes in on a national tragedy like a Republican. They love our troops, they just won't help them get health care once their home.

    I can't believe you CNN. Please give it a rest. Aren't you tired of the vile comments from the left? I guess you just can't get enough uneducated coments about the $9.99 E-BOOK or Tina Fey's made up comment about seeing Russia from Palin's house. Where is NEWS about Rangel? Oh that's right, there isn't any–why don't you actually report on something constructive and tell us why nothing is being done.

    Being the self-proclaimed Christian that she is, I'm sure that she has the noblest of intentions.

    I wonder why Sarah Palin choose Oprah instead of FOX NEWS to launch her book? Your answer--– Even FOX NEWS cannot tolerate her lies. GO FIGURE!!! My parents always told me a liar is a THIEF and Sarah Palin underlines what my parents meant.

    I took a hiatus from blogging here but I need to get back in after seeing so many stories about Sarah Palin courtesy of CNN. Is she running for President in the next general election? It sure seems so.

    A book tour? A book tour?! The only thing spurring Palin to visit the site of a such an awful event is to make it part of a publicity stunt?

    My lord, don't embarrass the dead like that.

    Wait, here it comes...........
    The twisted, cool-aid drinking liberals held up in their parents' basement – with Snickers Bar in one hand and mouse in the other – are a-wait with nervousness.....their palms are sweaty, heartbeat is increasing, eyes are glossing over.....the anticipation, ohhhh the anticipation....when will it come? WHEN WILL IT COME!!!!!!

    AHHHHH!!!! There it is, a SARAH PALIN thread on the CNN POLITICAL TICKER!!!!!! Their eyes widen with delusional excitement, their mouths froth over with venom-inspired hatred, they just can't take the overwhelming urge anymore!!!! Type, type, type, they must type with fervor.....get the words out, they MUST get the words out!!!!!!.....write anything with four letter words, and use stupid and dumb, use ugly and bimbo.......most importantly USE NO FACTS!!!! USE NO FACTS!!!!!

    There.....the fix is satisfied.....they can rest now, but only until the sickening PDS symptoms begin again......will it be tomorrow? Will it be in 30 minutes? No one knows.....only the poor, twisted sufferers in the basements across liberal America know for sure......

    Why? Are any other GOP Presidential contenders going to use the massacre as a campaign opportunity? Going Classless & Clueless.

    Go Sarah Go, you will split your party and make matters worse. then add in Lou Dobbs as an Independant and we will win – not by 11 million votes as last time, but around 22 to 25 million votes.

    Thank you for running and continuing to run your mouth, it's great

    Since when are civilians (not employed by the government) allowed on military bases on their book tour? I am disgusted by this. She has no standing that would justify this visit. How low can you go, Sarah?
