    Sarah Palin is keenly aware of what America needs right now. It's a strong dose of values, including the basics strength coming from patriotism and family. For all the confused Washington politicians trying to figure out what's happening...there are still 300 million Americans out here doing what we need to and we sent you a message to that effect earlier this month. You may have thought you were chalking up political points for the history books, but we are not impressed. How about doing something for the people and the country for a change?

    I understand to a certain extent why CNN gives Palin so much air time given how she was involved in elections but it is really everyday that CNN has some story on her. I know that people do love her (god knows why) but still...there is more print devoted to her than anyone in the WORLD. I feel saturated with Palin information. THIS IS TOO MUCH.

    I hope she doesn't try to alter history in this book.

    Does her new book come with crayons? How can this empty woman have two books on her nothing experiences published in less than a year.. This latest one must detail all of her bathroom breaks.

    Seriously, does she actually know how to write? I mean anything more complicated than "Go Dog, Go."

    Oh no – not more Palin – we are overwhelmed with her self serving publicity. Nobody is dumb enough to believe that she wrote a book on her own. Maybe we'll all be lucky and the road will hit Palin instead of Palin hitting the road.

    The Democrats desperately need to keep Sarah Palin, Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell percolating and in the public eye. Their cluelessness, bigotry, garbled utterances, and shrieking voices tar all Tea Party candidates and Republicans. Go Sarah - The Tea Party McGovern in 2012!

    I think the one thing that's going to get to Sarah Palin she will not be able to fight is OVEREXPOSURE! Not sure who her agent is but oneday soon Sarah is going to fall like a rock. Perhaps she should ask the Obamas about that "overexposure-thingy" because 2 years ago they were rock stars and now they too are just hype. Of course when this does happen I'm sure Mrs. Palin will just blame the "evil left wing media" for it like she always does.

    Good. keep her out of Alaska. We don't want her.

    Why isn't she going to some "blue states" ? Why doesn't she come to New York City and appear on "The View" with Barabra Walters?? How about Boston, Los Angeles? People who have a brain already know why. Gutless wonder.She still hasn't figured out that if she runs for president, we have states above the Mason-Dixon line she will have to deal with.

    Is this the same "America by heart" that her husband wanted to secede from? By the way, covering this fool gives free publicity to Fox News.

    You have got to be kidding. Who wrote this book for her? She has no clue as to American history She has no culture or class for that matter and as for current affairs she seems to screw that up also.

    What, she's not going to the West Coast or the East Coast?

    Too afraid of people who can actually think for themselves?

    Hope she hits the road, and keeps going. Another person that apparently was ignored when they were young.

    Theres no use trying to teach people about her or her constant lying.The people that follow her want to believe the lies she tells.Jesus even spoke of those in the later days that would rather believe lies than the truth.She is the sheep in wolves clothing and nobody sees it.Every click on her posts keeps her around.Ignore her totally.

    Like Newt- another conservative daring to say that her values are better than liberals.
    Well Sarah, you and your party of hypocrits can claim the high ground, but like that story of Christ in the temple, you are nothing more than a money-changer, playing to the lowest common denominator.
    Stop dictating to me and other about our lives and who we are. – You have no clue

    Couldn't she possibly take the road leads to the bridge to nowhere and not find her way back?

    Would be good if she literally "Hit the road"-but that would probably damage the pavement.! Maybe she'll wear out before she gets to SC-we have enough problems-Haley-without this moron.

    Thank God she isn't coming to where I live. Thanks to Reganomics and W the property values are low enough. If Caribou Barbie were to try to sell her coloring book here she would chase out the few remaining people from their homes. Still, I can't help wondering if the republican marketing machine will snap up copies just so the title enters the best seller lists. I sort of doubt it since that brainless bimbo has burned all the bridges behind her.
