Will Sarah Palin go rouge on TV when she talks?

Will Sarah Palin go rouge on TV when she talks?

Oprah Winfrey, the queen of TV talk shows, has announced she will host the ex-governor, ex-vice-presidential-candidate, still-moose-hunting Sarah Palin on 16 November for a conversation about her upcoming memoir, “Going Rogue”, which will be available in bookstores the next day. The 400-page tome apparently took some four months to complete (@ 3.3 pages a day?). This naturally leads to the question of just how many ghost writers were chained to their computers so the book could be completed on time to meet the publisher’s deadline. Seriously now, the book isn’t even in stores yet or available on the Internet, but it’s already the fourth most-ordered volume on Amazon and has breached the New York Times’ best seller list. With sales like this Palin will be able to pay off all her lawyers, buy a house in a state closer to the rest of the country than Alaska - and put away some cash for her run for the presidency in 2012. Hey, it’s only three years away.
