Palin Fans React To Released Clips From Oprah & Excerpts From Palin's Book

As we all know Sarah Palin has had someone write a book for her, which is titled Going Rogue: An American Life. It is due to be released November 17th. She has released some information about interviews she is doing for her "book tour", and one of those is with Oprah Winfrey.

Well, in the last 24 hours, clips from the Oprah interview have been released, teasers if you will, but it also being reported that someone from AP (Associated Press) has gotten ahold of a copy of her book and is sharing some of the information from the book.

So far, what we have learned is that the book is 400+ pages long, with only 5 chapters, and has a 16 page insert of color photos (no mention of what those pictures might be of), and that the book has no index. We've also learned that Sarah is using her book to do exactly what a great many people expected her to do. Retaliate against those she feel have wronged her, and to cry victim all over again.

The good thing about this book is that it has been printed. She can't go back and change it now. She can't try and say that she was misquoted, taken out of context, or edited to make her look bad. This is HER book. These are the words she has put her name on (for a price of course), and will have to stand by these words.

For that reason alone I am looking forward to the fall out that comes with the full release of this book.

So, in one of the two clips released by Oprah from the interview, Oprah asks about the Katie Couric interview. Sarah admits it was bad. She says she knew right away it was bad, but that the McCain campaign staffers told her it was good, and that she was showing the world her true self and it was what the people wanted to see.

She also speaks of Levi Johnston:


via The Insider


H/T to Bree Palin for the video location.





Now, as to the excerpts from the book. Well, it really is nothing more than what most people who are realistic about Sarah figured it to be. A childish and petty attempt to lash out at those people who she feels "done her wrong". According to the AP who obtained a copy of the book, these are some of the comments.

She describes Couric as condescending, biased and "badgering." She contends the anchor chose "gotcha" moments while leaving the candidate's more substantive remarks on the cutting room floor.

Palin takes another dig at Couric while asserting her expertise on energy matters. She writes that she was shocked Couric had asked her which newspapers and magazines she read; given what she called Couric's lack of knowledge about energy issues, Palin wondered whether she should have asked the news anchor what she read.


AP talks about the Palin Book


Is anyone really surprised that this would be the claims made by Sarah? After all, she has proven she has that "mean girl" streak in her. Remember her interview with John Zeigler? When she was discussing Katie Couric, her comment was "Because you aren't the center of the universe Katie". It also goes to show her lack of decorum, and her inability to control her temper when dealing with issues that she doesn't like or that bother her. That is not what should be considered "bonus points" for a politician.


So how are the fans reacting?


yogi41
Oh-oh; Nicole Wallace is going to get it from both sides. If true, this is what Palin writes about Wallace, Couric and her:

"She writes at length about Couric. She says that the idea to meet with Couric came from McCain campaign aide Nicolle Wallace, who told Palin that Couric - also a working mother - liked and admired her. It would be a favor to Couric, too, whom Palin notes had the lowest ratings of the network anchors. Wallace said Couric suffered from low self-esteem. And Palin replied that she almost began to "feel sorry" for Couric."

Certainly not a liberal, so called, feminist otherwise she would be stiff, cold and corps like.... Geez! a mannequin is preferable to their uppity-up-pence!
Jealousy has got to be a big factor for liberal women... maybe even more so with conservatives and independent women than we(ME) thinks.

It's unbelievable that Palin would be expected to cover the cost of her own vetting. Something has to be wrong about that statement. Isn't that something the campaign did BEFORE McCain picked her? That has to be one of the costs a campaign covers. Did the other possible candidates for VP get billed for their vetting? I'm beyond confused.

So those are a sampling of the reactions BEFORE they find out that the AP was incorrect on the vetting cost. It was originally reported that Sarah Palin was claiming $500,000.00 was charged to her by the McCain campaign for her vetting, when in reality Palin claims that the McCain campaign charged her $50,000.00. The correction was made, and also reported is that

“I can confirm that she was not billed for any vetting costs by the campaign,” said Trevor Potter, the campaign’s general counsel. “I do not know if she was billed by her own lawyer for his assistance to her in the vetting process, but from the excerpt that has been read to me by the AP, it sounds as if that is what she is describing.”

So what is the response after they find out this information?


lmg
And she says that most of her legal bills were generated defending what she called frivolous ethics complaints, but she reveals that about $500,000 was a bill she received to pay for the McCain campaign vetting her for the VP nod.

She said when she asked the McCain campaign if it would help her financially, she was told McCain's camp would have paid all the bills if he'd won; since he lost, the vetting legal bills were her responsibility.

Oh. My. God.

The $500,000 vetting bill is OUTRAGEOUS!

First of all, NO VP candidate should ever have to pay for the vetting bill because their team lost, regardless of what party you're in and the financial status of the individual.

Second, they asked her to pay the vetting bill after the MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of dollars SHE helped raised when she joined the ticket?

This is UNBELIEVABLE!

My question is, did John McCain know about this, or was this the ploy of her enemies within the campaign to stick it to her? I can't imagine this is normal practice for any campaign. And if McCain was not aware of this, did Sarah talk to him about it?

We still have to read the book to find out what really happened. The article only mentioned a small part of the story but provided no resolution to the story. Maybe it was all resolved in the end. I certainly hope so, otherwise it would look REALLY REALLY BAD for McCain and the entire campaign operation.

There are two different ways to see this Katie Couric interview.
When Governor Palin said she knew it wasn't going well, she is saying that Katie Couric was out for gotcha answers, and not giving up a line of questioning when Governor Palin had already answered the question every which way but Sunday. Governor Palin saw right through Katie's biased journalism. That is why she didn't see the need to go back for the 3rd, 4th and 5th segments. And her instincts were clearly right, when it was reported later that Katie Couric bad prepped for the interview with one of Obama's former advisors.
What people think she is meaning is, that she knew it wasn't going well from how she was coming off to the audience, perspective. Which, there was probably some of that in her thinkinng as well, because she was getting frustrated and annoyed with the attitude that Katie was displaying to her, but that the audience would not see.
Couple all that with the editing job CBS did, and it was a pure Obama loving, liberal smear job by Katie and CBS Evening News.

I'm a journalist, and one my personal rules is I don't set out to make my interview subjects LOOK bad. The first thing I learned about interviewing in journalism school was to build rapport. Granted, I'm more a a feature writer and I now do business journalism, but even in political reporting, your goal should not to make someone look bad. Your goal is to help your audience gain understanding that would help them make a decision. What Katie and Charlie did was pursue lines of questioning that far-left LIBERAL audience members would find important - but they did not ask Sarah anything about her ACTUAL record in Alaska, that might have showed her as a pragmatic leader with a reputation for working with Democrats to achieve meaningful reform in her state.

Furthermore, they did not ask the kind of rapport-building questions that they had asked Obama and Biden. I think that's what Sarah was really saying: Katie and I didn't hit it off. There was no rapport. That's what she meant by "bad interview." And shame on the McCain people for being so obtuse.
Today, 7:55:37



onexsturtle
I think Katie tried to get to know her by asking her what she reads, but at the same time Katie also badgered her with the abortion issue (trying to get into a debate) beforehand. In "Sarah From Alaska," it was said that Palin thought the interview didn't go well, but the staffers said it wasn't so bad, so to go out there again, which she didn't want to, but they told her she had to or all is doomed or something. They didn't mind the Gibson interview. They thought that was ok, so that was why the Katie Couric interview was set up.

It confirms what I suspected. Nicolle Wallace betrayed Sarah by getting her guard down before an interview that she knew her friend Katie was going to use to ambush Sarah. Why? Because she and Schmidt and probably others had already thrown in the towel on the campaign since it was probably after the economic meltdown. She betrayed the woman she was entrusted to.

I think what happened there was that Nicole Wallace and Katie Couric are friends, so Nicole did that as a favor to Katie not knowing that Katie would ambush Sarah. I doubt Nicole would want to spoil McCain's chance of winning. But that was indeed nasty of Nicole to think Katie Couric would be friendly towards Sarah. Nicole had told Sarah that Katie Couric needed a ratings boost and that Katie admires Sarah, so Sarah being Sarah went out and helped not knowing that Katie Couric is in fact a witch in disguise. That was very wrong of Nicole.

Add on the frivolous ethics charges cost and I imagine Sarah was afraid she was going to lose her house, literally.

So let's assess.

The McCain campaign says that Sarah Palin was NEVER CHARGED for the vetting of her, and that she may be talking about money she was charged by her own lawyer for his help to her, and yet the Palin fans are upset about her possibly having to pay that money? So they think, like Palin if reports are accurate, that the McCain campaign should pay her attorney for work he did for her? Really?


But then, what's this?

As you probably have heard, the AP snagged a copy of my memoir, Going Rogue, before its Tuesday release. And as is expected, the AP and a number of subsequent media outlets are erroneously reporting the contents of the book. Keep your powder dry, read the book, and enjoy it! Lots of great stories about my family, Alaska, and the incredible honor it was to run alongside Senator John McCain.

We can't wait to hit the road and meet so many on the book tour! See you in Michigan first...

Basically, the AP just pulled a Pearl Harbor-like sneak attack on the Governor. They bought a copy of her book illegally on the black market. You may recall that the AP hates Sarah Palin. You may also recall that she called them out and called their actions evil when they posted the death photos of a young Marine in Afghanistan. She wrote:


Shame on the AP for purposely adding to the grieving family’s pain. Ignoring the family’s wishes by publishing a sacred image of their loved one proved a despicable and heartless act by the AP. The family said they didn’t want the photo published. AP, you did it anyway, and you know it was an evil thing to do.
She didn’t care about how that might effect the way that the AP covers her in the future. She called it like she saw it because she loves and respects the men and women in uniform. Do you think Huck or Mitt or any of the other gutless wonders in the GOP would call out the AP like that?

So, the AP found the perfect way to wreck her book roll out and stick it to her. They can print whatever they want and she can’t respond because of the “embargo” that was negotiated for who gets first dibs on interviews.

I’m sure she never thought that a sneak copy would get into the hands of people who hate her. They’re obviously lying about her book. You’ll notice that AP is careful not to quote anything from the book. Instead they just “frame” the narrative by writing, “the book includes... blah, blah, blah.” And, of course, it “includes” exactly the narrative according the AP’s view of Governor Palin.

This is golden for them. They are hoping to tell her story before she can tell it herself. They are hoping to define her before she can define herself. They can lie about her, and she can’t call them liars – at least not for a week until she is free of the embargo. And one week is a very, very long time in the new internet media age.

This is like the first week of September 2008 all over again. You remember that week – that was when the geniuses of the McCain campaign rolled out Governor Palin in Dayton, OH, and then hid her away and allowed the media to destroy her for days without any pushback or countering of all the lies being spread.

But there is one difference between September 2008 and now. She has an army of supporters now. We know the truth. We know who she is. If you’re wondering about that vetting bill story from yesterday, ask yourselves this – When has the McCain campaign ever behaved honorably or honestly with regards to Sarah Palin? When? Who are you going to believe?

So what can we ordinary barbarians do? We can fight back. We can rally around her.

Write letters to every newspaper that carries the AP stories. Remind them that the AP pulled a cowardly Pearl Harbor sneak attack on her. Remind them that Sarah Palin called out the AP when they posted the photos of a fallen Marine after his family begged them not to. Remind them that Sarah Palin has a right to have her memoir read by people without having the AP falsely frame her words.

Remember the words of Whittaker Chambers: too often conservatives, like cowards, leave their wounded on the battlefield. We won’t do that with her.

The motto of Conservatives4Palin is “We’ve got your back, Guv!” And we always have.

She can’t speak for herself now because of this “embargo.” So we’ll speak for her.

We won’t leave her on the battlefield. We’ll carry her.


Update: The AP admits to illegally obtaining the book:


AP, however, stands by its story. "We've read the book; we've read it carefully — and we stand by our reporting," Paul Colford, AP director of media relations, said Friday.

People who steal also lie.


Standing UP for their Woman & Keeping theirs and her powder dry


Of course like Sarah, Palin fans don't hesitate to "make things up", as the AP does not admit to illegally obtaining the book. They state that they bought the book. Now we know that some people were sent out books before the release of the book in order to preview it, such as Oprah & Barbara Walters, and I am sure that there were many others who got the book before it was released for sale. Now I doubt highly that these people were made to sign agreements to not give away or even sell their advance copies of the book. But no doubt that isn't the way the Palin fans see it.

How do they react to this affront to Sarah?

This is going to get really interesting. Are we about to bust the AP's chops for blatant bias yet again?
Next week all will be clearer

Please help to post lists and contact information of all organizations, news outlets, newspapers. blogs, etc that run with the AP lies. An important battle in the revolution of reclaiming America has begun. Let's make the public response to Letterman look like a tiptoe through the tulips.

Let's make all these leftist haters learn a valuable lesson for the future. Broadcasting LIES will have consequences.......revolutionary consequences. Busy, busy, busy.....our work is never done. Type...type...type

(What about the consequences when Sarah lies?)

Drudge quotes Rogue, he doesn't make stuff up.

Drudge is the real reporter. AP is the real Fake Reporter.

What a world!

I can't believe these bastards, they include Levi's mumblings because she didn't mention him. Schmidt does prove to be more of a weasel then we first thought, maybe McCain had the post
partum depression, that was the way he behaved.


Recovering Democrat
I think it's hilarious (if true) that she didn't include anything about Levi. Punk doesn't deserve the ink! And it works on two levels:
1. Sarah has more class than to publicly trash the father of her beloved grandson
2. It might make sane people conclude that she has some dirt on Levi, not the other way around, and that she is, indeed, keeping her powder dry. ha!


Brian72
I've already seen some liberals saying that she did not trash Levi in the book because he has the goods on her and she did not want to provoke him into exposing the dirt.
Total crap.

If someone (in this case AP) does something illegal doesn't that mean that they pay a fine....or even go to jail? Just like Pelosi healthcare will do to those who do not have health insurance.

To be fair, we don't know if AP "stole" the book. No one is accusing Drudge of "stealing" it, right? Other than that AP sucks!


KeeleyH
AP might have finally stubbed its own toe. In the past, they got away with making things up and never retracting, or putting the retractions on page 97 where nobody noticed. This time, Sarah's entire book will not be shoved to page 97. It will be a bestseller and millions will read the truth. The book is so attention grabbing right now that every page will be read and dissected. It's going to be impossible to "make things up" about what's in the book.

The truth will finally win out, and the whole world will notice AP's credibility going down the toilet

I LOVE what Sarah is doing. One by one the media will see her for who she REALLY is instead of the person they wanted to make people believe she was. She is going to show everyone the REAL Sarah. It's already started. Barbara Walters of all people saying what a terrific interview she just had. I bet now she regrets treating Sarah like crap. Barbara wasn't really a bater, but she did actually believe that Sarah said that she could see russia from her house when she NEVER said that. One by one she will gain back supporters, people who are moderate or people who have no opinion of her are gonna look at her and realize that she is smart, that she is not who the media said she was. The hard lefties, forget about them, they are too far gone to be saved, but everyone else, just watch, she will bring in lots of new supporters


Lakerfanalways
Sarah just smacked Obama again..Read it on her facebook page..she is PISSED



And her facebook fans? Well they feel the same.


Mark Hill
typical of the media...the truth is, they cant stand it is a best seller and not even for sale yet...the hope this thwarts sales but hate to tell them, it wont, if anything it will sell even better...the great thing about the left is they never figure it out, the dumb get dumber.


Lynda Webster
A dems only defense tactic is slander. I'll give them credit for at least knowing they can't fight what's right and the facts.

Since they have no morals, they don't see themselves as doing anything wrong, just Replublicans.

John Joseph McEnery
I guarantee they already had a bad review written up before they even got their hands on your book. They pulled that with Glenn Beck's Comedy Tour this past Summer

Barbara Nesselrotte
We do not believe the media. We believe you. Don't let the dogs in. They don't have the ......to stand up for what is right.


Anne Britton Raab
What do you expect from the News Media?? The truth?? Don't worry... we can decipher the truth from their lies!!

Bruce O. Axtell
You are more and more our Ester, God Bless You, Sara

Michael Tierney
Read it?...I'm going to memorize it! Please don't quit, we need you!

Hank McKeithan
Sarah,
We will keep our powder dry, our tomahawks sharp, and be vigilant. We have high respect for your views and low or no respect for the government-bought press and media that continue to attack your character and family. God Bless you and keep you.

Craig Sayre
I don't like the implications of the title of this message. It sounds vaguely threatening - like there is about to be a war or something. She's starting to sound like Pat Buchanan with his silly "Buchanan Brigades".

(I wonder how long before this post is deleted?)


Brenda M Ross
After Charles Gibson attacked you and your religion I have been boycotting ABC, CBS, NBC, and many other lying news medias. I even wrote FCC about the attack on religion made by Gibson and of course was told he had rights too. Bah humbug the news medias have violated my rights daily ever since but does any gov't official protect me, NO.


Eugene Schreiber
Sarah you have to file law suits against these people in court. Start with the Huffington Post and Letterman. Sue them for billions and shut them down. Fight back and do not take this treatment, please

Karla Gehlen
At long last, a book written by a truly intelligent woman, and an outstanding human being!! I cannot wait to read it to my daughter

(Wouldn't that be considered child abuse?)


Gary L. Farmer
Roger, Keep the powder dry and the aim true!
As a retired US Navy aviator (flew a lot of missions out of Alaska also) keep on hammering the liberals and their blatant socialist agendas. The core values of our country must be maintained and these incompetents and their lemmings need to disappear from public office at all levels.

Cathy Cormany
Will be at Walmart (or Costco) when they open, to grab my copy--and 'trash' the fake 'Going Rouge' wherever I find it.
Remember, Sarah's has the Facebook photo, the other is a
slam job done by MoveOn or some such crapshack. Make no mistake, when they slam her, it's US they are spitting at. Hard working, military supporting, flag flying, Christmas celebrating non-whining Americans. Pls come to So Cal. Sarah! Not all of us are fruits and nuts out here!

(Now there is the fans of Sarahs that we have come to know and love..willing to break the law for Sarah)



Okay enough of that. Lets just say you have now gotten a pretty good idea on how her fans are reacting to this situation. They refuse to accept that the AP is telling the truth about what is in the book, even though there is no reason to lie since the book will be out shortly anyhow. We know without question that Sarah is willing to lie, about anything and everything, and we know this because it has been proven time and again.
She lied about the Bridge to Nowhere, she lied about the Pipeline, She lied about the ethics complaints, she lied about Troopergate, she even lied on Oprah about not liking drama when she obviously feeds on it, she even lied to her fans about her "tweeting", since she never did start tweeting to them, in 10 days time, after she left office, and has even just blown off the twitter account she used to have, and started up a new one just for her book tour, when it is widely known that she could have simply kept the same account, changed her name and kept those same followers. These are but a few examples of the lies she tells, which are easily documented for all to see.

Her dedicated fans are those who cannot be reasoned with. They cannot be talked to and hope for a rational response because no matter what you say, how much proof you offer them, they will believe whatever Sarah tells them, without question. She could tell them that their own child was switched at birth and they would no doubt accept is as fact. These people are that dedicated to her. It is like a cult. Dangerous, and exceptionally amusing to watch at times, but sad that these are people who have decided to buy into the lie that is Sarah Palin.
