Excellent Insider Memoir

I found Frank Bailey's story fascinating and credible. Sarah Palin's ignorance was sufficiently demonstrated during the 2008 campaign, but this book answers the questions that lingered. For example, How did such an empty-headed ignoramus become the Governor of Alaska in the first place? Bailey was there and the tells it like he saw it. Reminded me of a similar book by Andrew Young, The Politician. The narrator is terrific too.

Sad Man Stripper

Here's what I like about Sarah Palin: She's an American Sex Symbol over the age of forty. Our culture has precious few of those.

Everything else about her, you can keep.

So I'll confess, I was looking for some good gossip. If you're looking for good gossip too - you'll probably wind up as dissappointed (and oddly confused) as I.

Frank Bailey's book reads like a letter written by a sad, clingy ex boyfriend. He sacrificed his principles for a girl who don't love him no more. It's pretty creepy. And I have to say - given the length of the book, he doesn't really have much of a score to settle. He raised his hand and enthusiastically volunteered to compromise his own ethics for her, and she, apparently let him do that, but besides being thin-skinned and somewhat dopey (and not in love with Frank Bailey) Sarah's reputation comes out of the book the same way it went in. Better, actually, Someone took a shot at her and came up with not much.

Frank, on the other hand, makes himself look pretty bad. Imagine a sad-faced, mid-life strip show. Hard to watch and hard to look away.

I must add that the book has a lot of Church-y stuff in it that you might enjoy as little (or a lot more!) than I did. But, the writing team did a nice job with the pace and the prose.
