As you know, Sarah Palin's forthcoming book is smashing all records in pre-order, is already a major best seller and is due out November 17th.
And that has the Angry Left absolutely seething. So a startup Leftard publisher is coming out of the wordwork with their own hit job version, due out the same day as Palin's book, one day after Oprah has her on to try and rejuvenate Oprah's sagging ratings and credibility. And as you'll notice, with a markedly similar cover design and title in a clear attempt to make a few bucks confusing people.
"Going Rouge - An American Nightmare" is only available in paper online from this sleazy publisher or as an e-book, and of course, ( unlike Sarah's actual book) there are no refunds.
The creative contributors of this hit piece are just lovely.It's edited by Richard Kim and Betsy Reed, two senior editors for the hard Left Nation Magazine, and the excerpts are done by Leftard icons like Max Blumenthal, Michelle Goldberg, Jane Hamsher, Naomi Klein, Dahlia Lithwick,Joe Conason, John Nichols, Matt Taibbi, Michael Tomasky and Katrina vanden Heuvel.
I suppose David Corn, Andrew Sullivan, Keith Olbermann and Maureen Dowd were either too busy or too pricy.
Each order of "Going Rouge' comes with a souvenir Special Edition plastic waterproof photo suitable for spitting on during the Ten Minute Hate.
I may have made that last one up.
I would not be surprised to see HarperCollins slap an injuction on these people as this is a clear effort to to deceive the public and constitutes trademark infringement and unfair competition.
My goodness, but the Left is deathly afraid of this woman.
And it will be even worse once her book comes out. Sarah Palin could very well end upo the first billionaire political author.
