PALIN PILE-ON

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Could this am­bi­tious ef­fort in­di­cate that some folks are, uh, ner­vous about Sarah Palin’s po­lit­i­cal prow­ess? Maybe.

“Go­ing Rouge: Sarah Palin, An Amer­i­can Night­mare” was re­leased smack in the mid­dle of the for­mer Alaska gov­er­nor’s book tour show­cas­ing her best­selling au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, “Go­ing Rogue: An Amer­i­can Story.”

Richard Kim and Betsy Reed, se­nior ed­i­tors at The Na­tion mag­a­zine, edited this clone book loaded with lib­eral coun­ter­point against Mrs. Palin, in­clud­ing a cover nearly iden­ti­cal to the orig­i­nal. They call her “an Amer­i­can ob­ses­sion that just won’t go away.”

But is it all that clever? This marks the fourth time in re­cent weeks that the wag­gish “Go­ing Rouge” has been used in a new book ti­tle about Mrs. Palin — and one of those ti­tles is a col­or­ing book.

The new­est “Rouge” vol­ume in­cludes ob­ser­va­tions by Joe Cona­son, Mark Herts­gaard, Naomi Klein, Frank Rich, Hanna
