Sarah Palin working on book that will honor 'American virtues and strengths'

NEW YORK (AP) — Sarah Palin is ready for the next chapter of her publishing career.

Publisher HarperCollins announced Wednesday that the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate is working on a "celebration of American virtues and strengths." The book is currently untitled and no release date has been set.

"She will also draw from her personal experience to amplify these timely — and timeless– themes."

    "She will also draw from her personal experience to amplify these timely — and timeless– themes."It's going to be a short book, then.

    Don't you first have to have some virtues before you can write about them? How can someone who has no integrity whatsoever right about virtue?

    before you are to be able to judge them,don't you first have to understand what virtues are,you seem like a one legged man in a butt kicking contest…no offense intended,but you really don't seem to understand conservative american virtues…………

    Well, Ken, I guess I don't. Virtues to me are things like integrity, kindness, charity, etc. Sarah Palin has demonstrated many, many times that she has none of those qualities. Therefore, if she epitomizes conservative American virtues, they must be something with which I am not familiar. May I also add that I probably will have no interest in them either? The virtues with which I am familiar are Christian in origin. I guess that means that the ones you are talking about are unChristian or pseudo-Christian.

    integrity is a good thing,but if you watch the news it seems like the democratic/socialist party doesn't have any,as a matter of fact they seem to be sexual perverts for the most part,kindness and charity seem to be code words by the socialists, for give me whats yours.nothing more then thinly veiled strong arm robbery, christianatity tells you to make the most of your life, not to trespass on someone elses live.why is it your rallying cry is always ''sharing'' when what your really saying is that you want your neighbor to share what they have and give nothing in doesn't sound very christian to me.

    Hi Ken,
    I'm glad that you admit that integrity is a good thing. Seems like the Republican Conservatives don't have any (integrity). Several Republican conservatives can be on your list of sexual perverts in politics. Mark Sanford. Larry Craig.Mark Foley. Bob Allen. Michael Duvall. John Ensign
    My Republican Conservative Representives rallying cry is always ''sharing'' Alaska's an 'owner state' 'municipal sharing' Research that….
    Ken, as a conservative, what can or should we do? How can your balanced opinion become the only opinion? That's what you want, right? Is it helping by calling your opposition names? Do you really think that the world's woes are because of America's Democrat Party or just liberalism with socialism mixed in?
    You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly… Matt 7:5

    Also, Ken, this isn't about Republican virtues or Democrat virtues; it is about Palin and whether or not she has any redeeming virtue. You are in the habit of throwing out red herrings in every argument. Let's keep it simple, Ken, and stick to the topic. My purpose here is not to rant every time I have a chance. What's your purpose?

    Mar 06, 2010 @ 19:36:00

    is this your list of sexual stupidity from the republican party,unless you lead a very sheltered life you know the list of democratic perverts is 3 to 1 if not more,since the year began a new one pops up about once a week,who was it the past week patterson of new york,i'm sure you heard of him,he replaced a perverted gov.and then we found out he was even more of a pervert,whats that saying about glass houses.but your right they both have their problems,and the tea party is just the group to clean it up.get on board,its the only hope for this country.


  11. ken
    Mar 06, 2010 @ 19:40:00

    my purpose is to bring this country back to right,palin is helping,thats the point.what direction are you trying to head it in.that also is the point.

    Mar 07, 2010 @ 06:53:00

    You aren't seriously implying that one side lives in a glass house and not the other are you? And where did you come up with this comment? This article is about Palin and virtue. Stick to the topic man; you're stuck on stupid.

    My purpose on this thread is to stick to the topic and express my opinion. It is just beyond me that you think Palin is the savior of America. She is undereducated; she appears to be a pathological liar; she says the same old talking points with no specifics and no solutions; she is incredibly dishonest. All of this is easily verified from a variety of sources, including her own mouth. Furthermore, she has to be one of the worst parents I have ever seen. She is running all over the US while her children are running amok at home. Willow's recent escapade would be a wake-up call to any other parent. Her treatment of Trig on the bus tour was appalling, especially when she pulled him out of the bus at night with him in a sweatshirt, diaper, and bare legs while everyone else was well-covered. Piper has no childhood; she is a little lady-in-waiting for her mom. How do you overlook all these things, Ken, not to mention her lack of foreign policy knowledge? This is a woman who has indicated that her fall-to policy for international conflict is war. Do we need more wars, or do we need, as a species, to figure out a more productive and less lethal way to solve conflict? She is a mess and very likely suffering from a significant personality disorder. This is who you want leading America?

    Bravo…I would just like to thank you for establishing again for our friend Ken that Sarah is a mess and she is certainly one of the worst parents I have ever seen. I live in Wasilla and have seen the dysfunction of the Palin family..

    Mar 07, 2010 @ 10:24:00

    Here ya go, Ken. Google Sarah's speech in Alberta and you will find that she told a story about her family taking her brother for medical care when he burned his ankle (oooh nooo it was socialized medicine no less). Then go to this website and see her "other" version of the same story.

    In response to my own comment:I've asked Syrin to delete the Defense Department comment I made earlier. As a Canadian, I don't think I'd take it too well if someone from a different country made snide comments about my country's military.I'm truly sorry for offending anyone.

    Mar 08, 2010 @ 14:40:00

    i have never stated that she is the savior of the republican party,she could however help the tea party put its agenda on the national stage,and as far as sticking to the topic,whenever bloodying sarah palin is not in the forefront the gushing praise of democratic/socialist agenda is all over this blog,while no conservative gains anything more then begruged approval.under the guise of being good american conservatives you bash every moral they hold dear,the latist showing of that was with brown,who got a maybe after he voted against the grain with the jobs bill,stop showing yourself as a conservative you are a democrat/socialist everycomment you make shows least be honest about your desire to destroy this country

    Waah, waah, waah! Conservatives are honest, Christians who only want the best for America. I call bullshit. You're such a hypocrite. And while you're screaming "socialist" at every opportunity, you might look at the socialist tendencies of Ms. Palin. Oh you didn't know? Look a little closer. When it comes to her, your brains are below the belt.

    Ken, I don't recall that sjohnson has bashed every moral WE hold dear. Correct me if Im wrong. I believe we all try to live by them in some way. I would hope that as far as morals and how they apply to politics and governing is that we all want the same honest and competent people, regardless of party or faith. Most times it's just we see different ways of getting there. For me as a Christian conservative.. The hypocracy of Palin is sickening to me. She's now the face of a Christian Conservative Republican. She's set us back decades in respect, she's an absolute joke.

    This is why I like this blog: the passionate give and take of it's followers. No shots are being fired; no one is going to jail or is liable for prosecution for expressing their strongly-held ideas. These exchanges between we folks pounding the keys in our warm, cozy homes, slinging rhetorical mud at one another is what brave generations of freedom-loving men and women have fought and died for.Syrin is right: " …we all want the same honest and competent people, regardless of
    party or faith. Most times it's just we see different ways of getting

    Well, this was talked about today. I thought this guy was an R, but he is a D. Just one more to add to the list of perverts. Check out what 'snorkel' means. Thank goodness for UrbanDictionary.
    The House ethics committee decided Wednesday to close its short-lived investigation into allegations that then-Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) groped and sexually harassed several younger male staffers in his office, according to two sources familiar with the decision.

    How weird! My comment was truncated. I actually also said that he was a train wreck and wondered if he was related to the Palins or Heaths. I recognize the disconnect between the brain and mouth.


  28. ken
    Mar 10, 2010 @ 19:48:00

    and whats the bottom line here,pelosi wants to throw a scare into any democrat who would vote against the healthcare bill,so shes making massa a scapegoat,i like the part of rahm emanual bull rushing him naked in the shower,and if what they are saying about massa is true,rahm and emanual were doing alot more then pointing fingers at each other,gay rumors have been going around about emanuel since day one.

    I'm not one to tell anyone about punctuation or sentence structure but DANG Ken.
    If you'd space out your sentences maybe I'd concur with you more often. Many others would understand your comments and where you're coming from if it were legible.


  33. sjohnson
    Mar 10, 2010 @ 19:58:00

    Well, you just never know. I do disconnect from time to time.

    Mar 11, 2010 @ 14:44:00

    Ya don't say, Ken. To tell you the truth, your rumor about Rahm is the first one I have ever heard about him being gay. One of your favorite techniques is to take any dirt coming your way and throw it at Democrats.

    That it was. Almost as though Beck was set up. By himself. Sad, that.

    I almost felt sorry for him….not real sorry. Just sort of sorry.

    Mar 11, 2010 @ 20:07:00

    I think I feel more sorry for those who take him seriously. They lead a sad life.

    Maybe there is no such thing as sadness in their universe……

    wait for it, beck has a answer for this, and massa isn't done yet,he knows he was set up.

    Mar 11, 2010 @ 23:39:00

    What? Where? You mean Beck has an answer? Wow! My life will be on hold until I hear this. Excuse me while I yawn….

    you really have no idea what beck has come to represent,this country has been getting pulled to the left for 70 years,its about to be brought back to right.get on the train or get off the tracks.


  45. sjohnson
    Mar 12, 2010 @ 15:37:00

    Oh yes, I and most of the population know that Beck has come to represent paranoia, irrational thinking, and racism in America. No thank you. He, Coulter, and Palin should be thrown down the same dark hole. They are anti-Christian and anti-American and downright disgusting with their hate-mongering.


  46. ken
    Mar 12, 2010 @ 15:51:00

    beck has the most watched show on cable t.v. so if anything you are in the minority,he has become the spokesman for american freedom,,the irrational ideas of the progressive right are coming to a end,they will no longer be allowed the benefit of doubt they will no longer be allowed to hide their marxist ideals in oh my gosh i just want to share with my neighbors, oh goshisms,christain marxists like those in central and southern america are barely christians and will not be allowed in the land of the free, try as you might to wrap your socialist propaganda around the church.that you want to throw racism at everything you don't like is the sign of a weak mind,or just a showing of what a true cannibal you want to be,and thats all that socialists are snakes with their tails in their own mouths,thay are enjoying the feast for as long as it lasts,but it will end and there will be absolutely nothing left.


  47. sjohnson
    Mar 12, 2010 @ 16:07:00

    blah, blah, blah! I call bullshit. You pulled your comment about Beck being the most popular show on cable straight out of your ass. Beck, Coulter, and Palin are all a waste of skin.


  48. ken
    Mar 12, 2010 @ 16:19:00

    beck is number one on cable t.v. google it.he is helping to pull this country out of the socialist dead end its been heading into for 80 years,stagnation is not a destanation.


  49. sjohnson

    Mar 12, 2010 @ 17:08:00

    its the # 1 news show on cable t.v. if you want to compare it to all news shows its starting to come in ahead of the big three,face it,people are tired of the socialist p.c. bull,they want some truth in their news,not just the socialist poor me ,,i just want to help my neighbor crap that the msm media keeps dishing out.the progressive/socialist brow beating is coming to a end

    First of all, it isn't a news show. It is entertainment. Even Murdoch acknowledged that. Second, Bill O'Reilly is ahead of Beck. Third, he is so full of misinformation that even I see it as entertainment. Fourth, there are many people who watch him because he has become so ridiculous that he is a curiosity. However, the fact that you are trying to defend the moron says a lot about you and your narrow-minded views.
