Palin’s “Going Rogue” tour begins 18 Nov. Ca-ching!

Although you won’t be able to be part of Sarah Palin’s book tour for her memoir, “Going Rogue” in Seattle, San Francisco, Philadelphia or Los Angeles (too many Democrats), you can catch her in Noblesville, Indiana, Washington, Pennsylvania and Rochester, NY. And don’t look for book signings in the Big Apple either. Her book is coming out on 17 November and there is that Oprah appearance the day before. "Going Rogue" has a first printing of 1.5 million copies and has been at or near the top of's best-seller list for weeks, even though not a copy has been available to actually hold in your hands yet. As if that’s not enough, ABC News announced Barbara Walters would interview Palin for three ABC News broadcasts - "Good Morning America", "Nightline" and "20/20" beginning on launch day. And Palin is looking for interviews with all those calm, non-partisan folks on the Fox News Channel. Other planned appearances include Cincinnati, Columbus, Roanoke, the Army post in Fort Bragg, Orlando and Albuquerque. Read more: AP
