Book Summary: This book is full of Palinisms, wit, interviews, and seriousthoughts that are designed to give the reader a clear understanding of how Sarah Palin sees life and politics. It is a compilation of actual quotes Sarah Palin has made on a great many topics from living in Alaska, to politics, to Tina Fey. and everything in between. "We need to spend more time lifiting up America instead of apologizing for the greatest country on earth, " was a CBS News quote from February 17th, 2010 and it is just one of many that fill the 192 of this book. My Reaction: Not a Palin fan going into the reading of this book I can clearly say that I have learned a great deal about the once governor of Alaska. Her Palinisms are full of wit and hidden in each one you find an element of plain basic truth. It was eye opening to learn about her from reading her exact words. Matt Lewis researched his subject well and placed it tidy package making it an easy read. This is definitely a book for all conservatives and Palin fans, which I was not. However, If you love America, even a non-Palin supporter will appreciate her obvious love for America. She is very entertaining which makes reading her quotes interesting. If you want to know a little more about Sarah Palin and like reading nothing but quotes, then this is your book!

I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
