But how many of those were real words?

I’m more curious to know Fox’s future marketing strategy.With the Republicans trying to find themselves on immigration, same sex marriage and… who knows… after three more record tornado outbreaks in the heartland they might even flip on global warming… they have to be looking at their long term market share.The 23% are stroking out or shooting themselves at gun shows so Fox might have to go all Barnes and Noble and embrace talking pictures and horseless carriages… and the modern world reality.

Although I do miss walking into a big book chain and leafing through all sorts of new titles with the smell of fresh brew in the air.A roaring fire and a Kindle on a cold winter’s night… not the same but easier on the eyes.

Sarah Palin lives in a country where a piece of toast with Mary's visage on it can fetch a good price on ebay.

$ 15.85 : Price per word Palin got from Fox.

$ 3 Million : Contract with Fox.

$ 1 Million: Price she got for "Sarah Palin's Alaska".

Handing the democrats the 2008 election on a silver platter: Priceless

Probably not that far off from what she made on her book.

Sara Palin is very intelligent and she would improve this Country allot more than Obama has.

On the whole she made out a whole lot better financially than if she were still in Alaska.  Too bad she's still no sharper than a sack of wet mice.

Sara Palin is one of the best Governors of time. I would vote for her again if she would run for President. She would do allot better job than Obama. Obama has done nothing for this country and added to much debt. I predict end times in the next 20 years to come. The Country was blind to vote Obama back in. The saying goes you learn from your mistakes. Hopefully in four years they will vote for the Republican Candidate to get this country back on track.I am praying that we can make out of this Presidency with little damage.

More importantly, how many were written on her hands?

@cent-fan I love it when I can have the best of both worlds. Go into a bookstore, pick through until I find something I like, then download it onto my Kindle and go drink coffee while I read.

Life is good.

A friend gave me a copy of her book "Rogue" as a gift. I found it very useful. 20-30 pages and the whole brush pile was aflame.

@jmann0269 Thank you for that hilarious comment. I'm guessing it was sarcasm. No rational person could think that moron would improve anything beyond her own bottom line.

@jmann0269 Based upon what evidence?  Her half-term as governor?  Her ridiculous (and stupid) commentary since the failed run in 2008?

I'd give her only half of a vote since she only serves half terms.

Did she rule during all of the Phanerozoic, then, or did she quit sometime in the Carboniferous, just before the end Permian Mass Extinction?

LOL, maybe you should pray for a high school education before you post to a comment board frequented by educated adults. The over-simplicity and poor grammar of your posts make you sound like a child.

I'm with cent-fan. Kindle just isn't the same as having the book in your hands. I didn't miss albums (much) when cds came out, but I'll never give up my books. Then again, I still don't use a cell-phone. 3D tv? You bet.

@Diecash1@jmann0269"Based upon what evidence?"  

Based on that she is the most attacked, reviled, hated person by liberals in this country.

That should tell you something. About her and about the libtards.

Go on Sarah, keep going. Keep getting under their skin. They can't stand the truth. Make them squirm.

I guess you didn't have a "liberal education" after all. 

At least you're admitting that you can't do reading comprehension.

Tero, we had some seriously cold weather here this past week. My MIL hadn't started her car for over two weeks. It wouldn't start this morning. I walked in this morning after getting home from work and she was in her room praying for her car to start. I went out and gave her a jump from my truck. She thanked GOD for answering her prayers. I kind of think it was me, my truck and the jumper cables.

@Diecash1 @jmann0269 I'm actually surprised this thread isn't chock full of that sort of posting.  The fact that it's only RustyTroll and whoever this is, speaks to exactly how far the mighty Sarah has fallen.  Where are her legions of Mama Bears and loyal followers to sing her praises on high?  How Fox is foolish for letting her go and that she is worth every penny.

Lol. I was giving him blu-ray dvd's, gift certificates and 1st edition hardbacks. We're still friends (I think) but me taking $ 200 off of him this past election has strained it a bit. Come to think of it, I haven't talked to him since I picked up my money.

@sacredh We still do the gift thing (I actually enjoy Christmas shopping). And we always try to give each other what we want.

Now, though, when my mother asks for books by Beck or O'Really, I order online. I feel like I'm downloading bad porn.

Sue_N, We quit exchanging gifts a couple of years ago. I always gave him something he wanted. He gave me redneck propaganda that he'd already read. He got upset when I told him that I was using them to start fires.

England is a socialist country. Using their language correctly would bestow unwarranted credibility upon them.

Incorrect. Palin is loved by liberals. We appreciate the laughs and the victories she handed us with her peculiar brand of "wisdom".

We don't have to stand her brand of baloney; liberals didn't toss her from her Fox contract - the fact that her hurt more then helped did.

@reallife @Diecash1 @jmann0269 You mistake our pointing and laughing for fear and that's just precious.  

Based upon your comment history, you're likely as dumb as she, but apparently not as well paid.  Don't sweat it.  The repubs are always looking for the next dim bulb and it could be you!
