Six thousand leaked emails! Faking her way through her own faith! “Incompetent and ethically compromised”!
It’s more schadenfreude than we can even stand.
Frank Bailey is the author of a new book entitled “Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin” (is there any other kind?) and it sounds delicious. Bailey was once a part of Palin’s inner circle, which is how he got his hands on so many of her emails. She would probably be pissed if she actually read books.
Among the highlights:
- Writing fake letters to editors and signing phony names
- Spending hours to freeping TV station polls
- Launching a smear campaign against a neighbor Palin didn’t like
- Calling elderly supporters the “crazy old men’s club”
- Miscellaneous mean-girl bullshit
Our favorite story is the one about the neighbor. This poor person complained about the traffic jams that Palin was causing around her mansion. Her response? Send her daughter out to sell lemonade, so that it would look like the neighbor was attacking a lemonade stand. GENIUS.
Palin also apparently defended her willful ignorance on just about everything by saying “Remember: amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.”
Amateurs? Wasn’t it God who provided instructions for … oh never mind.
