Behind the Public Mask

A former aide to half-term Alaskan Gov. Sarah "Mama Fizzly" Palin has a book out that demolishes Fizzly's carefully managed image. Frank Bailey's "Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years," is based on thousands of e-mails and personal knowledge of Snowbilly Snooki and is scathing in its portrayal of her as a shallow, vindictive, thin-skinned climber with little interest in public service. One of the typical quotes:
"Getting Sarah to meetings and events was like nailing Jell-O to a tree. On the campaign trail and as governor, Sarah went through at least ten schedulers, with few lasting more than months. Nobody wanted the job because Sarah might fail to honor, at the last minute, the smallest commitments, and making excuses for her became a painful burden."
She had her staff go after people that had given her just the slightest criticism, used her power as Governor to punish personal enemies, and ignored Alaska state business after the national political spotlight was turned on her.

Now, there's speculation that Fizzly will announce she's running for the Presidency. With 58% of Americans saying they would never vote for her, we fervently hope she does, and that the Rethugs continue their run off the cliff with her.
