Former Sarah Palin Staffer Releases Tell-All Book
Matt | On 26, May 2011
We all know someone who has or does throw political stones at Sarah Palin on occasion. I know a few that do it regularly. But, we haven’t heard too much from her inner circle about what it’s REALLY like to work with the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate.
Now one of Palin’s former staffers, Frank Bailey, has released a book called “Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin” and it has the people talking. The book is built on the foundation of thousands of emails that Bailey collected between he and Palin when he worked for her in Alaska. So, it builds a more credible “foundation of truth” than if he were just name-calling with no references.
One major takeaway from the book, according to published media reports, is that Palin is exactly the political novice we thought she was. After she and John McCain (R-AZ) lost their bid for the White House, she became disinterested in her day job as Alaska’s governor. She was a pain in the ass to schedule for events because she was so damn flaky. Also, the former governor was more interested in media superstardom once the VP thing didn’t work out. (She later left her governor’s post and became a speaking circuit attraction and FOX News contributor).
Palin’s only formal response to this book has been to say it’s a work of “fiction.” Her team also points to the potential legal trouble that Bailey may face from Alaskan authorities because he used work emails for personal gain.
Whatever happens to Bailey, the cat is out of the bag with the book. It adds further confirmation that Sarah Palin is truly out of her league politically. She can continue to knock those that call her out. The facts still speak for themselves.
