Interestingly, I was never contacted to confirm or add to what they attributed to me. I believe there is quite a bit more to add to this manuscript as it is still in the process of being completed. I would like to have an opportunity to speak with the authors about what I said then and what I might be able to add now.
I also want to note that my comments that are being used throughout the book are just that, informed comments! Full disclosure folks, I’m an Alaskan who was completely willing to put myself out there with what I knew to be the truth about Sarah Palin’s past, present and future. I appreciate my comments being included. I’m not really a blogger in the same sense as those I find myself in the company of in this book. However, I did get the message out and apparently with continued jabbing of my moral stick drove Sarah and Todd close to the edge of insanity! Who knew?!?
