Here’s just a little glimpse into the excitement the former governor of Alaska has created in the last few days with her ‘Going Rogue’ book tour. It’s amazing that she sold 300,000 books in just one day! Take a look at her first stop –
Nov. 16 – The Oprah Show
(extra footage from the interview) not a very friendly audience
The Left and the media might hate her, but Sarah Palin is a ratings sensation.
Such appears to be the case given the announcement that Monday’s episode of “Oprah” was the most watched for the daytime talk queen in two years.
Nov. 17 – National Review Online Interview
The Rogue, on the Record
A chat with Sarah.
By Rich Lowry & Robert Costa
Former Alaska governor and Going Rogue author Sarah Palin talked to NRO this afternoon in a wide-ranging and frank interview.
She thinks President Obama’s bow to the emperor of Japan reflects an attitude that America should be “subservient to other countries”; characterizes Newt Gingrich’s thinking on NY-23 as reflective of a “political machine”; thinks that South Carolina voters should consider sending Sen. Lindsey Graham a message by supporting a conservative primary challenger; calls the media’s treatment of Carrie Prejean “unfair”; and says she would give John McCain “the benefit of the doubt” in their dispute over whether she was charged with fees for her vetting. And oh, yeah — her anonymous critics don’t have “guts,” and she’s not a David Brooks fan.
“That was a mistake,” Palin says of the Obama bow. “It was symbolic of, perhaps, our country being led to believe that we are subservient to other countries.” She says she would “like to see us head more in the direction of Ronald Reagan’s thinking — knowing that we are a very, very blessed nation and a superpower.” She adds, “We can get there through a position of strength and not believing that we have to kowtow or bow to anybody.” Asked if she would have bowed, she replies, “No, sir.”
Nov. 18 – Grand Rapids MI
Next Stop – Kentwood MI
5:50 p.m. | Proving the axiom that power does hold some privileges, state Rep. Kevin Elsenheimer, the Republican leader of the House of Representatives from Bellaire, was able to skirt the lengthy line and get his two copies of “Going Rogue” signed ahead of the thousand or so people who waited hours. “I feel bad. I’m kind of hanging my head low,” he said as he made his way through a crowd of media. “We just really appreciate that she made Michigan her first stop.”
5:30 p.m. | Palin comes out of the bus, clad in a red and black jacket and black skirt and carrying her son Trig. She tells the people gathered outside that she was thrilled to be back in Michigan.
“Alaska and Michigan have so much in common with the huntin’ and the fishin’ and the hockey moms,” she said “This is the heart of industry in America.”
She also answered random questions from the media as she made her way from the outside stage to the bookstore. She said she thought the new mammogram guidelines set a dangerous precedent.
And she also said that the Newsweek cover photo of her in a pair of shorts was “quite cheesy. I never would have posed for Newsweek like that.”
5:26 p.m. | Palin’s bus pulls up to Woodland Mall in Kentwood. A cheer erupts. No sign of her yet, though.
