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.

    This soon to be released book is notthing but another non-analytical story of Palin's family life and personal views–more Republican/Conservative propaganda!! Palin probabily dictated the book to her ghost writer who wrote it just like the first book. This book is berift of any public policy discourse and analysis and will be quickly dismissed as trivia which will end up in the discount book rack within six months.

    Nobody cared about her first "book," so why should we care about her latest feeble attempt to stay in the public eye? She's old news; let's put her out to pasture.

    She is a great person who loves her country and family.

    You need to get a brain scan done as quickly as possible. With the new healthcare plan, it will be affordable. Do this quick before your other senses become equally impaired.

    Palin has to fill her book with quotes, songs, movies and other peoples pictures and wrting because she has nothing of her own to contribute.
    It is completely lame that a publisher would pay for this dribble.
    She is just in for the money. I hope people are not dumb enough to pay for this.

    I tried reading her first book and it was so boring and nothing. I was glad that I hadn't bought it. She is a "know-nothing", trying to capitalize on her moment of fame. She should go back to Alaska and raise her family. Don't know why Todd puts up with her. He is raising the family while she is out tromping all over showing off.

    This sounds like a winner! Once again Sarah pretends to write a book, but instead of having it all written for her, she's going to add in things that other writers have put on paper just to fill up the empty spaces. I really think the saddest part of this whole story is that there are actually people out there who are still so facinated by this phony, that they will pay good money for the book.They really should spend it on a real book that they can learn something from..How about a dictionary?.

    What a moron... lol... it's hilarious to think that this woman will write (will have someone write) about our founding fathers yet she couldn't name one... oh wait, she's going to write about "all of them, ya betcha". And literature that inspired her, what, Mad magazine? TV Guide? Comic books? She is a clown. I love all of the stupidity this woman brings to the table, it makes the Right think they have a chance of ever taking this country "back". You idiots can thank GWB for not producing WMD's. McCain can thank this dimwit for not only losing in 2008, but for Arizona turning their back on him. lol I love it.

    Her book will be bought by those who can not read and write. Just to put it on shelves and see her picture!

    "She has still written fewer books in the amount of time that she has been in politics than Obamessiah has in his political tenure. Neither of them have enough political experiance added together to confidently write anything signifigant"

    The key difference being, and why you are way off base Fake Sniffit, that Obama actually wrote his books, while she hasn't written squat. Note also that this new book she is RELEASING (nobody should be conjugating the verb "to write" with respect to this farce) is a collection of things written and created by OTHER PEOPLE.

    I know I make you guys angry, but seriously, come up with your own just look like losers.

    This woman is absolute trash!!!! She incites people with her absurd rhetoric and is doing it for only one reason, to make money. She is evil personified! Please people, don't be taken in by the very poor excuse of a human being!!!!

    And to think this woman has brought in millions of dollars...funny isn't was all planed people...maybe she's not as dumb as we think she is...

    flashback...hubby quit his job also...I'm sure to carry the baby around while she racks up $100g's for showing her face at whatever event/rally that is foolish enough to invite her...and she has NO platform...the only thing she knows how to do is bash that's really old news...

    when it's all said and done...Mrs. Palin will be standing in thigh high fishing boots in a red-white-and blue string bikini with rifle in hand covered in hundred dollar bills....laughing at us all...

    bottom line...she's still a dumb broad!!!

    Will it be a pop-up book?
    Seems to me that's just about all she can manage without a ghost writer.
