8/50 Going Rogue by Sarah Palin

  I am not political by nature. I have opinions. I am smart enough to keep them to myself most times. I read Sarah's book to hear her story. She tells the story of the 2008 presidential election from her point of view. She's a smart woman, that Sarah. She loves her family. She wants her country to be better. She probably was misrepresented in the press. She commands attention. I went to a McCain/Palin rally in my hometown and she is a good public speaker. Sarah and I may not agree on everything, but she said things in her book that I have heard myself say.At times she waves the American flag and stirs your patriotic heartstrings. At times she sounds like she is campaigning again. And maybe she is. Because she certainly isn't done.

2.5/5 stars
