Palin takes brief break for Thanksgiving

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Palin's book tour continues after the holiday."] (CNN) - Sarah Palin is taking a break from her marathon book tour to celebrate Thanksgiving with her family in Richland, Washington, her spokeswoman confirmed to CNN Wednesday.

Palin's parents are originally from the area, and an aunt of the former vice presidential candidate currently lives there.

But Palin won't be off the book trail for long: She's slated to sign books at a Hastings bookstore in Richland Sunday.

The menu at "Aunt Katie's house" isn't public, says Palin spokeswoman Meg Stapleton, "but there's no doubt there will be meat - right next to the mashed potatoes."

    Along the way is Palin stopping from her book selling to give back at all...contributing to food banks or stopping to help at shelters???

    If Sarah was in charge of the White House state dinner, I am sure she would have served elk, moose, deer and rabbit to the prime minister of India.

    I love how the Sara Palin hating libs here always get their panties in a knot over any mention of Palin's name. Why the attacks on a private citizen? The one you need to worry about is the the one you voted into the White House.

    A break from what? She doesn't actually DO anything. Others do things for her and she takes credit for it when it goes well or assigns blame when it doesn't.

    Really who cares what this bag of air is doing for Thanksgiving.
    I am thankful she never was elected VP and quite frankly wish CNN would stop reporting about every move she makes.
    I have always respected CNN for their reporting and hope to continue tuning in but enough with Palin everyday.

    Why is this news and why is she the lead?
    CNN- how much were you paid for this coverage of this nobody?
    Not since Paris Hilton fever have i seen so much ado about nothing.

    She should take a break. I mean it was probably hard writing that book using up all of her three brain cells that she has. Oh wait she didnt even write it herself. Please Ms. Palin, take all the time you need. Longer the better.

    This woman is amazing. On her brief book tour break for holidays with the family, she is running in a 5K Marathon to benefit Red Cross today.

    Gov Sarah Palin is the perfect role model.

    Palin, Baby, Palin!

    The latest synonym for 'death panel' is......

    Palin Administration!

    No one cares.

    Get a clue CNN! When Palin takes a break, you should also finally take a break from mentioning her! We're all tired of hearing about her! 'Palin does this, Palin does that' and now reporting 'Palin isn't doing anything!'

    I watched her hour long love fest with Hannity last night and thought she did very well. Of course 99% of the questions were slow,down the middle powder puffs as expected but never the less she was reasonably lucid and gave a couple answers that bordered on intelligent.

    The Dems may yet get their fondest wish and see her become a serious contender in '012?? If she limits her appearances to Fox and Limbaugh it might happen???

    And now she'll have plenty of dough so she can play in the big leagues!!!

    So... the news is that there ISN'T any news about Palin? This ticker was really worth writing, wasn't it!

    Boy the media sure is giving Sarah Palin a good deal on marketing her book for her. For example, this story conveniently told people when and where they could buy her book and have it signed. Looks like free advertising to me! what was that she was saying about the MSM being all against her? I'm sure she likes things the way they are just fine 😉

    Everyday you give press to this publicity seeking "nobody'. Please stop. I seriously doubt very few people care about what she does or says.

  22. All about women in 2012.....

    I took a brief break from housecleaning today. I am not sure I will have a Thanksgiving dinner today. Trying to find somewhere to go.

    Who cares!!! believe it or not this most of us don't care about her book tour and don't need daily updates. There are "real" problems facing us that are about doing our job and reporting on those.
