Second Palin book due in November

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Sarah Palin's second book will be titled 'America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag.'"]
(CNN) – Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will release her second book in November, publisher Harper Collins announced Wednesday.

"America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag " 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," the publisher said in a statement announcing the new book. "The book will also include portraits of some of the extraordinary men and women she admires and who embody her deep love of country, her strong rootedness in faith, and her profound love and appreciation of family. She will also draw from personal experience to amplify these timely (and timeless) themes-themes that are sure to inspire her numerous supporters and all readers across the country."

The second book was inspired by the people Palin met during her 35-city tour in support of her first book, "Going Rogue," Harper Collins also said. The upcoming book "celebrates the enduring strengths and virtues that have made this country great," the publisher added.

"America By Heart" will hit bookshelves on November 23, according to Harper Collins.

Palin has become one of the GOP's biggest stars since being tapped as Sen. John McCain's running mate during the 2008 presidential race. In addition to being an author, the former Alaska governor has become a sought after speaker and a contributor on Fox News. Given her popularity with the GOP's conservative base and with the Tea Party movement, Palin's political future remains the subject of speculation - with many political observers wondering whether her books, speeches, and television appearances are a precursor to a White House bid.

    At least this time the media got it right: they state "Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will RELEASE her second book" and they didn't state "Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will WRITE her second book" ... especially since she didn't even write the 1st one. How quaint, a journalist who will just copy other"s works instead of trying to be creative enough to write something original and from the heart. Oh, I forgot who I was talking about for a second ... sorry.

    There is just no limit to the detritus that Palin will regurgitate and gift-wrap to sell to gullible sycophants, is there?

    Making that money while the MSM has their head up her butt. She is the dumbest, most ignorant, screechingest person this country has ever seen. She knows absolutely nothing about nothing but pretends she has a brain. While ghost writers put down fabrications about her.

    Who's going to write the book for her. This idiot doesn't even know how to construct a sentence properly let alone write a book. Why does CNN continue to cover this dumb bell?

    I am one of those that thinks Palin couldn't run the country better than my cat; however, I'll give her this: the woman knows how to capitalize off an amazing opportunity given to her. In a way, it's become the driving force of our country. You know, being able to take your 5 minutes of fame and run with it. How else would Miley Cyrus still be around? In a weird way, because I extremely dislike most of what Palin stands for, I am cheering her on to make as much money as possible. Because that's exactly what she's doing. She doesn't care about anyone; she's trying to make as much money as she can before people get tired of her. In that regard, I say get yours, girl.

    REALLY!?! Is there anything else this useless person can say? What did she forget on the last failed book she now recalls?

    Palin may be a "star" ... (republicans said the same about President Obama – but then that was a bad thing) but I hope she follows the copyright laws – that she won't be claiming other people's ideas as her own ... that will be two books – However the President wrote both – rather than just collecting an anthology ...

    does the ghost writer of sarah's book get any credit? how about royalty payments? guess it is easy to just have the money to hire someone and say , "write me a book–let me know when it is finished." she knows all of her worshipers will buy it-wow just like free money.

    Will she ever go away? I saw her other book in the dollar was $1.00 and nobody wanted it..who cares what this quitter thinks or says..she is nothing.

    REALLY??? Who would read her book anyway? We all have heroes from history. We don't need her telling us who she admires. I'd be surprised if she even knows of any REAL heroes from history, much less the enduring values that have made this country great!

    Vacuous dimwit writes (by way of ghost writer) new pop-up, coloring book. The sheep will be lining up to pour more $ into her greedy pockets.

    Question here is, who's going to write this one for her?

    And will it have a coloring page?

    Question... has there EVER been anyone more adept than Palin at milking an adoring public for cash while saying absolutely nothing? Just wondering...

    She really is a money grubbing hustler who takes advantage of a group of people who are less informed than she is. There should be a law against lying.

    Ah the old dependable "Family, Faith, & Flag" theme is always good to get a conservative all lathered up. Why not throw in a little of Mom's apple pie for good measure? It won't matter if the book has any substance – and wilth Sarah facts & truth are always in short supply. All this means another few million in Carabou Barbie's bank account.

    LOL, as soon as I heard about the book, I wondered who actually wrote it. She's a nitwit... But ignorance is glorified amongst her fans...

    The sad thing is there are people out there who take this woman seriously. She is about as shallow and dimwitted as anyone can get and yet people would actually vote her for president.

    Her "strong rootedness"?

    I don't think anyone who went through 4 different colleges and spent six years to complete a 4 year degree is capable of writing a book. She is probably going to have someone write it for her just like she did on her first book.

    although i am not a fan of palin, she sure knows how to cash in on her brand. sarah-you just keep on siphoning money from your dimwit followers. next thing you know she will copyright "sarah palin". that way she can sue everyone who mentions her name with her consent (i.e. paying her first).
