Presented in a unique reversible-book format, this is the ultimate chronicle of the public reaction to a certain former Alaskan governor who is famous or infamous, depending on who is speaking. Both sides of the Sarah Palin argument find strong and unabashedly-biased voices in the book, including quotes and interviews with fascinating figures that include Glenn Beck, Rudy Giuliani, and Mitt Romney in the pro-Palin camp, and Conan O’Brien, Maureen Dowd, and James Carville to balance the discussion in the anti-Palin camp. Functioning as two books in one, this account of the fans and critics of Sarah Palin shows that when it comes to controversial and highly-publicized political personalities, there is no fine line between love and hate.

Rendezvous with America The Unexpected Story.... In the political battlefield of 2008 where politicians were hiding under their desks and making sorry excuses for their overspending and irresponsible leadership, Sarah Palin took America by storm. Chronicling Governor Palin's life, Mark Nusbaum reveals the "real" Sarah Palin amidst the political turmoil unfolding around her. He describes in detail why her passion for individual liberty, limited government, and fiscal prudence is capturing American hearts and minds. To Democrats, "She is an existential threat" - Dick Morris To "business as usual" Republicans, she is their biggest nightmare. "Political figures like this don't come along very often. Republicans haven't seen anyone like Palin emerge from their ranks since Ronald Reagan...They've been starved for a leader with charisma and a knack for leadership. Now they have one." - Fred Barnes Weekly Standard It's a mistake to underestimate her... - Former President Bill Clinton Does She Have a Rendezvous with America? With masterful precision Mark Nusbaum weaves the ebb and flow of Governor Palin's 2008 campaign message into a platform of ideas that are destined to shape America's future. As she has spent her career fighting for and delivering transparency, accountability, limited government, and pro-growth economic policies for the citizens of Alaska, Sarah Palin is now on the edge of leading a movement to take America back from big government liberals. I watched the way she connected with people..., and she's powerful. Her politics aren't my politics. But you can see that she's a very powerful, very disciplined, incredibly gracious woman... People connect to her." - Lorne Michaels, Executive Producer, Saturday Night Live "Now democrats have something to worry about!" - Howard Wolfson, Clinton Campaign Manager This book explains the impact Governor Palin's message and the choice Americans have in the days ahead.

Deer in the Headlights

Deer in the Headlights is a poignant, at times very funny, and fascinating tale of a boy thrust into the media spotlight and now figuring out how to be an adult and a dad.

Levi Johnston—best known as Bristol Palin’s baby daddy and Sarah Palin’s favorite whipping boy—sets out to clear his name and, with any luck, end his run as Alaska’s most hated man. Promising hockey player and Governor Sarah Palin’s almost son-in-law, Levi Johnston was eighteen when Palin became the vice presidential nominee. His unique place as Bristol’s live-in boyfriend provided him a true insider’s view of what was going on behind closed doors at the Palin household. And how Sarah’s public views were often at odds with her home values. It makes it all the more curious that Sarah eventually turned her anger directly on Levi, after losing her ticket to the White House. After being bullied, lied about, and outspent in the courts when he attempted to bond with his new son, Tripp, Levi Johnston now is ready to set the record straight. Deer in the Headlights is a poignant, at times very funny, and fascinating tale of a boy thrust into the media spotlight and now figuring out how to be an adult and a dad. Johnston, ever honest, had a unique window into Palintology at a critical time; he sat in the family’s living room and paid attention. Not bitter and never petty, Johnston shares his story. As Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC so aptly put it: “I love that kid. He’s honest, he’s straightforward, he’s not embarrassed.”

A hilarious, informative guide to language and grammar inspired by America’s favorite maverick. It would seem to go without saying that a strong understanding of how to use language properly and effectively is a requisite for success in the 21st century. And yet, increasingly even some of America’s most prominent public figures and leaders seem to have only the most tenuous grasp of how to put together a coherent sentence or paragraph. No individual could be more representative of this unfortunate national tendency than Sarah Palin—the former Governor of Alaska, Fox News pundit, and now campaign surrogate for Donald Trump (another public figure with only a passing familiarity with how to use the English language). Time and again, Ms. Palin finds ways to bungle basic tenets of vocabulary, syntax, and grammar, often giving speeches or interviews that upon reexamination read more like the drunken ravings of someone unhinged. But it is for this very reason that Ms. Palin can be a great example for all Americans. Often it is only possible to learn from making mistakes, and Ms. Palin has made plenty. This book will be a guide that uses the colorful and chaotic language of Ms. Palin to illustrate key lessons of how (not) to write and speak well.

Framing Sarah Palin

Framing Sarah Palin

75 Like pop culture characters Gracie Hart or Elle Woods, Palin was a woman
who projected a confident femininity, without “whining” ... A similar framing of
Palin appeared in the Wall StreetJournal in early September: “Maybe Sarah Palin
from Wasilla is a lot closer to the ... They hate victimology,” as expressed by
Hillary Clinton or traditional feminism, but admired Palin's “grit, determination and
character.

Sarah Palin’s 2008 vice presidential candidacy garnered tremendous levels of interest, polarizing the American public—both Democrats and Republicans alike. While many have wondered who she "really" is, trying to cut through the persona she projects and the one projected by the media, Beail and Longworth analyze why she touches such a nerve with the American electorate. Why does she ignite such passionate loyalty – and such loathing? How did her candidacy mobilize new parts of the electorate? Using the notion of "framing" as a way of understanding political perception, the authors analyze the narratives told by and about Sarah Palin in the 2008 election – from beauty queen, maverick, faithful fundamentalist and post-feminist role model to pit bull hockey mom, frontier woman, and political outsider. They discuss where those frames are rooted historically in popular and political culture, why they were selected, and the ways that the frames resonated with the electorate. Framing Sarah Palin addresses the question of what the choice and perception of these frames tells us about the state of American politics, and about the status of American women in politics in particular. What do the debates engendered by these images of Palin say about the current roles and power available to women in American society? What are the implications of her experience for future candidates, particularly women candidates, in American politics?

I Love You But I Hate Your Politics

I Love You  But I Hate Your Politics

We’ve all been there – the family dinners turned full-fledged political debates, the awkward chat in the kitchen at work, the difficulty of discussing politics on a first date or even at dinner with a long-time partner. Today’s divisive climate – and the seemingly neverending circus of Brexit – has made discussion of current events uncomfortable and often uncivil. So, how exactly do we find ways to reach across the aisle to those whose views we find unpalatable? Psychotherapist and lifetime liberal Jeanne Safer hopes to shed some light on the situation. Combining her professional expertise with personal experience gleaned from over forty years of happy marriage to her stalwart conservative husband Richard Brookhiser, as well as a wealth of interviews with politically mixed couples, Safer offers frank advice for salvaging and strengthening relationships strained by political differences. Part relationship guide, part anthropological study, I Love You, But I Hate Your Politics is a helpful and entertaining how-to for anyone who has felt they are walking on eggshells in these increasingly uncertain times.

The Joy of Hate

The Joy of Hate

The Joy of Hate tackles this conundrum head on--replacing the idiocy of open-mindness with a shrewd judgmentalism that rejects stupid ideas, notions, and people.

From the irreverent star of Fox News’s Red Eye and The Five, hilarious observations on the manufactured outrage of an oversensitive, wussified culture. Greg Gutfeld hates artificial tolerance. At the root of every single major political conflict is the annoying coddling Americans must endure of these harebrained liberal hypocrisies. In fact, most of the time liberals uses the mantle of tolerance as a guise for their pathetic intolerance. And what we really need is smart intolerance, or as Gutfeld reminds us, what we used to call common sense. The Joy of Hate tackles this conundrum head on--replacing the idiocy of open-mindness with a shrewd judgmentalism that rejects stupid ideas, notions, and people. With countless examples grabbed from the headlines, Gutfeld provides readers with the enormous tally of what pisses us all off. For example: - The double standard: You can make fun of Christians, but God forbid Muslims. It's okay to call a woman any name imaginable, as long as she's a Republican. And no problem if you're a bigot, as long as you're politically correct about it. - The demonizing of the Tea Party and romanticizing of the Occupy Wall Streeters. - The media who are always offended (see MSNBC lineup) - How critics of Obamacare or illegal immigration are somehow immediately labeled racists. - The endless debate over the Ground Zero Mosque (which Gutfeld planned to open a Muslim gay bar next to). - As well as pretentious music criticism, slow-moving ceiling fans, and snotty restaurant hostesses. Funny and sarcastic to the point of being mean (but in a nice way), The Joy of Hate points out the true jerks in this society and tells them all off.
