I haven’t pre-ordered the Saran Palin “Going Rogue”.  Many of the juicy details have already leaked out.  She did the disastrous Katie Couric interview because she “felt sorry” for her.  The McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt gets slammed for shouting at her over the phone after Palin gets tricked into taking a fake call from Nicolas Sarkozy etc. etc.

In fact, according to the Times:

The most sustained and vehement barbs in this book are directed not at Democrats or liberals or the news media, but at the McCain campaign. The very campaign that plucked her out of Alaska, anointed her the Republican vice-presidential nominee and made her one of the most talked about women on the planet — someone who could command a reported $5 million advance for writing this book.

It all smacks of paranoid high school behavior.  Tina Fey not only did a great Palin on SNL but also the sense of Palin we see in the book reviews was captured in Fey’s movie “Mean Girls”.  This Venn Diagram captures it all:
