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.

    Wow, the irony is thick. Sarah, who turned and quit on the people who exercised the right to vote her into the state house of Alaska, will visit a place where young men and women help to preserve that precious right, a place where young men and women are trained to complete the mission, however challenging and dangerous and unpopular it may be. Why doesn't she just sign her books in Dallas and get the hell out of Texas? Oh, I forgot, she's a fighter.

    and wingnut Palin is on her capitalistic run - totally classless!

    This is a nice thing to do. Palin has class. unlike Obama who takes forever to do something. Now you Obama bashers of Palin I am sure will have plently of disrespective remarks to make about a woman who has done nothing to any of you idiots.

    In honor of our soldiers, why don't you quit using a national tragedy to sell books.

    What a disgusting, low life piece of trash that woman is.

    This book is already being scrutinized by the media and all highlights are being mentioned. After Monday on Oprah, I guess everything you want to know about this book would be exposed and from what I am hearing so far – there's nothing left!! I GUESS I DON'T HAVE TO BUY THE BOOK AFTER ALL.

    There's NO policy whatsoever – just lies and ramblings we already know about PALIN. But again, she will get over in her own way and make money – which is her goal!!

    You people in the media should get your stories straight about Palin. From what I read in over 200 comments – 90% were against her, but the media continues to give her the spot light. She cannot even get her facts straight.

    She takes advantage of any oppotunity. I hope she remembers where she is and that the people there LIKE their country. Please don't use this time to bash the administration.

    Talk about turning a tragedy into a PR stunt. This woman surely knows how the public sees her. Even if she does have good intentions, she should know better, and stay away from Ft Hood. Even the appearance of taking advantage of this tragedy is disrespectful.

    This is comical with all the Palin articles, what gives? Is CNN stirring up all those old liberal blogger's to get out there and keep campaigning for the anointed one? Meanwhile, our economy continues to slide down the tube, at least job creation and any initiative to put people to work... We have another terrorist attack at a military base, Healthcare Bill in the dead of night, phony NY23 poll results, Constitutional rights for war criminals, hmm and that is just this week! America is not going to last three more years at this rate!
    Could it be they realize they are a disaster so it is let's keep the minions busy hating a Conservative WHITE woman that called out Obama for what he is, a muslim sympathizer?
