King: 'Going Rogue' reignites Palin divide, even in her hometown

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Palin's book 'Going Rogue' releases on Tuesday."]
Wasilla, Alaska (CNN) - At Pandemonium Booksellers, the Sarah Palin 2010 calendars are hot sellers, and since the election, the traffic in political books has been decidedly to the right.

"Glenn Beck outsells President Obama at the moment?" is our question as owner Shannon Cullip leads us on a tour of the bookstore.

"Oh yeah," she responds with a laugh. "Big time."

In the window, there is a small Wasilla Chamber of Commerce sticker and an image of the town's famous mayor-turned-governor-turned-GOP vice presidential nominee.

"Going Rogue" is shattering the presale record at Pandemonium Booksellers and reigniting the Palin political divide, even here in her hometown.

"It's either one extreme or the other, I would say," Cullip says of the bookstore's Palin conversations. "I would say people either completely, completely have her on a pedestal or don't like her. Not too much in the middle.

    "Not much in the middle" huh? Obviously this is in reference to what is between Palin's ears.

    Why would Obama's book sell more in this GOP Sarah Palin loving store. The fact that his book is for sell in that environment is amazing in it self. These Glen Beck Palin loving idiots can keep 2010 calendars as a reminder of how brainwashed they really are. At least they admit theirs a huge amount of people up there who can't stand her too.

    I think the lady from the bookstore needs to get out more. People are not buying her book for an in-depth look at Alaska's beloved Sarah Palin. Rather, they are buying the book to read more dirt and distortions. This woman has lost all credibility even with some of her faithful "Palin Bots" here in Alaska.

    I wish people would stop calling this four eye cross eye fool pretty.When she takes off her glasses you don't whether she is looking are talking to someone else. And stop saying she is a breath of fresh air. She is more like a giant stinking fart. And by the way why is it that a crazy person is always the last one to know that they are crazy ? Maybe McCain need to slap some sense into her and himself for picking her as his side kick.

    And the so called Christian Right Wing Conservatives who support this selfish ego maniac call themselves patriots?


    Then I would love for one of these so called American patriots to explain how they love America so much, yet they support someone MARRIED to an individual who actively supported a movement aimed at separating a State (Alaska) from our Union?

    I guess it's true that looks are everything. If this imbecile looked like Rosie O'Donnell do you think CNN would hang on her every word?
