Sarah Palin Is Writing a Fitness Book

The Mama Grizzly is going rogue. Again.

For those who have worried that the newly waifish frame Sarah Palin has been sporting around southern California is the prelude to some kind of ill-advised Real Housewives of Wasilla reality series, we have the answer: it’s likely the impetus behind (or result of) a fitness book she is writing with her family. While the Palins certainly seem to be more active than the average American family — partaking in invigorating activities like salmon fishing, bear-chasing and dog-sledding together on their previous TV show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska — the book will instead focus on helping readers in the lower 48  indulge in their favorite foods while remaining fit.

As Palin told People magazine in an e-mail, “Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved homemade comfort foods!”

As governor of Alaska and later as the Republican candidate for Vice President in 2008, Palin’s culinary style is typically marked by heavy dishes such as moose chili and chocolate cream pie, which she would make for guests. Those days seem to be over, though, and Palin states that the book’s plan “allows a fulfilling quality of life and sustenance anyone can enjoy.”

This is Palin’s second foray into writing. Her 2009 memoir, Going Rogue, with co-writer Lynn Vincent, was a best-seller.

Pretty Sarah Palin, trim, tight amp; physically perfect from head to toe, has another best-seller upcoming with her exciting diet amp; exercise book.

There is no end to Sarah’s means of selling herself for money!  Palin is the ultimate political strip-tease, thrusting and rubbing her self all over a White House column.  The dollars rain down and she gives them another sneak peek at what’s under that dress.  See just how nasty America’s Top MILF will get for the cash at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot...

I doubt she is actually writing it, since she shows little ability to either read or write. It's much more likely that she has hired a ghost writer to write something she will later put her name to and claim as her own original work. Someone whose mind would come up with "If God didn't want us to eat animals then why did he make them out of meat?"--and hers did, it's a direct quote taken from her second book--is not someone who can create a coherent and marketable literary product.

Hey Sarah, the Hokey Pokey is a childrens song.

whew!  saw the headline and was afraid that it was a book about MENTAL fitness and had horrific visions of some informational contagion from her to her minions.  I'll be ok. ;)

Hopefully, this new physical fitness regimen is resulting in an increase of blood to her brain and will help her when she, one day soon, tries to use actual logic in her thought processes.

Maybe those folks who think that she is fit to be any sort of political office-holder will pick up her book and they, too, will see the fallacy of their pre-fitness thinking.

(sorry, I make an exception to my spiritual thinking for this brief comment and wallow in my humanness LOL)

This is not her second book, it's her third.  The second 'America by Heart' was a marketing flop.  Sounds to me as though her Fox contract is not going to be renewed and she's looking for another way to make money.  Instead of actually getting a job.  Or her  husband getting a job.  Or her eldest daughter getting a job.
