A biographer of Sarah Palin’s has found her target audience: 9-12 year olds.  “Speaking up: the Sarah Palin Story” is being published by Christian pulisher Zondervan’s Zonderkidz division.  We can just imagine what they’ll say about her.  At least until it’s actually published, in September.

Sarah Palin is almost as entertaining as Yogi Berra when it comes to saying things she didn’t really mean.  Or maybe she did.

“What would your response be if I asked you to remove some books from the collection?” –Sarah Palin, inquiring with Wasilla librarian Mary Ellen Emmons about banning books right after taking office in 1996

Here are some other Palinisms to consider:

What Would Ronnie Do?

“This is Reagan country (applause). Yeah! And perhaps it was destiny that the man who went to California’s Eureka College would become so woven within and inter-linked to the Golden State.” –Sarah Palin, blundering on Reagan’s education while speaking at a fundraiser at California State University-Stanislaus. Eureka College is in Illinois. (June 25, 2010)


"Papers, Please"

“We’re all Arizonans now.” –Sarah Palin, defending Arizona’s new law cracking down on illegal immigration, May 15, 2010


"No, that's NOT right!"

“Go back to what our founders and our founding documents meant — they’re quite clear — that we would create law based on the God of the bible and the Ten Commandments.” –-Sarah Palin, arguing that Judeo-Christian belief was the basis for American law and should continue to be used as a guiding force for creating future legislation, interview with Bill O’Reilly, May 6, 2010


"Do as I say, not as I do!"

“We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada. And I think now, isn’t that ironic?” –Sarah Palin, admitting that her family used to get treatment in Canada’s single-payer health care system, despite having demonized such government-run programs as socialized medicine that will lead to death-panel-like rationing, March 6, 2010
