“America By Heart” Already a Bestseller

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 2, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Governor Palin’s book America By Heart is doing quite well. It’s hard to imagine another book paralleling the success of Going Rogue, but it’s definitely off to a good start. She tweets:

Awesome Iowa!Thank u! & just heard America by Heart is #2 NYT bestseller list behind Pres.Bush’s good book,so thanks for sharing inspiration

Furthermore, Ian Lazaran reports:

America By Heart will debut at #4 among all books on the USA Today Bestseller list. Obama’s new book continues to be a total bust. Congratulations to former President Bush for claiming the #1 spot among all books for the first time. Governor Palin, former President Clinton, and Colin Powell were the only political figures to ever occupy the spot prior to Bush’s #1 ranking this week.

[…]

Congratulations to the Governor for producing another best-seller even though she had some pretty stiff competition from Bush and Beck

If you haven’t purchased your book yet, you can order it here.

Radical Feminists Attack Palin’s Pro-life Stance Rather Than Celebrate Her Achievements

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on December 2, 2010

Anti-Palinists Hate  Sarah Palin Because of Her Pro-Life Stance-Radical Feminists’ Outdated Anti-Male Concepts are Exemplified By Their Non-Comprehension Of Victorian Repressive Tensions In The Art Of Dorothea Tanning.

The vitriolic hatred of Sarah Palin by the radical feminists, as exemplified especially by the Blog “Shakesville,” shows, beyond doubt, the terrible dilemma and schizophrenic mindset the conundrum that is Sarah Palin has put such feminists into.

On the face of it, a woman of Palin’s achievements should be the cause for triumphalism amongst feminists. In every aspect of her life, her career achievements in a “patriarchal” world, her completely equal sharing role with her husband (a “real man” if that has any bearing on the matter), her capacity to be an author, outdoors person, activist and caring mother are an incredible advance on where women were as late as the mid 1960’s.

But no, Palin is under ceaseless attack for one reason only, her dedicated pro-life stance. Whatever feminism was before the rise of Palin, and of course its aim of equality of opportunity was laudable, it is now seen to be mono-focussed. Pro/anti-life considerations are its defining motif above all else.

No matter what Palin has achieved, no matter what she may further achieve-even to the ultimate feminist triumph of becoming the first female president of the United States – she will never be acceptable to the feminist left.

This is the ultimate failure of feminism in its current aspect as a manifestation and tool of the Alinsky radical left. In this current guise, its goal is to defeat Palin and prevent her from achieving the highest office in the land. This is because she is a woman whose life views they disagree with-at the cost of negating economic policies which will help all women.

This dichotomy in the collective mind of radical feminists is highlighted further by their failure to grasp that there are elements in society and human nature which transcend the blinkered notion of “patriarchy” and the liberal world view.

Their attitude to Palin’s life reinforcing/religious stance is mirrored by their non-comprehension of the Dionysian nature of humankind which finds its expression in women as well as in men. The surrealist paintings of Dorothea Tanning are an odd journey into a world which, if depicted by a man, would be the subject of much feminist attack as misogynist, e.g. one of her seminal works Eine Klein Nachtmusik .

Tanning’s paintings bring the viewer into “an unsettling world” of what appears to be Victorian repressive neurosis.

The male created surrealism of e.g. Dali has a dreamlike, or similarly other-worldly nature, but there is nothing of the overt, distorted nature of Tanning’s work. Even the title of her major work “The Truth about Comets and Little Girls” reinforces this unsettling innuendo. “Her work explores the female psyche through the medium of dreams. Her paintings often combine a superficial childhood innocence with rather disturbing undertones and morbid symbolism”

Even Hieronymus Bosch, the predecessor of what we know as surrealism presents nothing of the nature of Tanning’s oeuvre. His work, even with his most gory depictions, have an element of being so over the top that they transcend being unsettling.

Feminists, Paglia perhaps excepted, have been so radicalized by years of extreme anti-patriarchal propaganda that they have inured themselves to viewing the broader brush of humanity. This humanity expresses itself in regarding men and women as having diverse, but equal natures, some aspects of which are not particularly attractive, but that in reality are held nonetheless.

Women can hold to a pro-life stance for which they shouldn’t be demonized by other women who “know better” and which demonization leads to, ultimately, the detriment of all women and society as a whole. The feminists, in their black and white view of the world, are unable even to entertain a reasonable dialogue regarding an individual’s pro-life stance. By doing so, they expose themselves as lacking a truly humanistic and balanced view that accepts the diversity in women in the arts and in the body politic.

Bristol Palin: Mr. Olbermann–Sorry We Can’t All Be As Perfect As You

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 2, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Bristol Palin respectfully, but forcefully, took down “perfect” Keith Olbermann today. His decision to attack a 20 year old speaks volumes about how childish he is, and the manner in which she handled him speaks loud and clear about her level of maturity. On Facebook, Bristol writes:

Recently, a left wing commentator named Keith Olbermann attacked me for being a spokesperson for abstinence education and for being an Ambassador for the Candies Foundation, which promotes teen pregnancy awareness and prevention education. He went so far as to call me “the worst person” he knows, apparently, for my efforts to educate teenagers about the real world risks of premarital sex.

Accusing me of hypocrisy is by now, an old canard. What Mr. Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with insincere incredulity. Mr. Olbermann fails to understand that in order to have credibility as a spokesperson, it sometimes takes a person who has made mistakes. Parents warn their children about the mistakes they made so they are not repeated. Former gang members travel to schools to educate teenagers about the risks of gang life. Recovered addicts lecture to others about the risks of alcohol and drug abuse. And yes, a teen mother talks about the benefits of preventing teen pregnancy.

I have never claimed to be perfect. If that makes me the “worst person in the world” to Mr. Olbermann, then I must apologize for not being absolutely faultless like he undoubtedly must be.

To Mr. Olbermann let me say this: you can attack me all you want. But you will not stop me from getting my message out about teen pregnancy prevention. And one day, if you ever have a daughter, you may change your mind about me.

Bristol Palin

Hopefully Olbermann–radical far-Left loon that he is–has learned a thing or two. The logical thing for him to do now is acknowledge he was out of line and way off base, but I don’t expect it. Who knows? Maybe he’ll surprise me.

The Palins Talk Fish with Biologist Tim Sands

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 2, 2010

Governor Palin posted a link to this video on Facebook today, accompanied by this comment:

Enjoy this video from “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” about how we manage our fish for abundance.

The video, entitled “The Palins Count Fish”  is posted on the TLC YouTube channel with this description:

Watch a deleted scene from Sarah Palin’s Alaska where Sarah, Todd and Piper meet with Tim Sands of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to count fish.

Remember to watch Sarah Palin’s Alaska Sunday nights at 9/8c on TLC and check out the official site at TLC.com/SPAlaska. Also check out the show’s companion site at SPAlaska.com.

SPAlaska.com also posted the bonus video in an article on that website yesterday.

Viewer ratings for “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” broke TLC records with its premiere episode, saw a normal decline in the second episode, and then became stronger in its third and most recent episode.  The bloggers at SPAlaska.com were excited by this latter increase and posted this article yesterday:

Big news around these parts today! The ratings for the most recent episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska are in, and as Larry David would say, they’re “Prettay good. Prettay, prettay … prettay good!”

In a 17% increase from the previous episode’s ratings, 3.5 million people tuned in to see Track and Todd go fishing, and Sarah and Willow prep some salmon. That’s half a million more than last week and includes a 42% increase in the important 18- to 49-year-old demographic, rising from seven hundred-thousand to one million.

We’re not the only one’s talking about this big bump; here are what some other’s have had to say about it:

It seems clear that the general feeling on this news is: “wow!”

Let’s celebrate!

Fan at Lexington Book Signing: “I came to meet the 45th president”

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 2, 2010

Governor Palin signed copies of her new book America by Heart at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington, Kentucky last night.   Hundreds of fans showed up for the event.  For one of them, this was about the 10th book signing of Governor Palin’s that he had attended.

Laura Butler at the Lexington Herald-Leader reports:

Hundreds of people flooded Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington on Wednesday night to meet Sarah Palin, who visited the store to sign copies of her book America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag.

The book, Palin’s thoughts about the future of the United States and words from those she finds most inspiring, was released Nov. 23, about a year after her best-selling memoir, Going Rogue.

To get one of the 500 vouchers available for places in line, customers had to buy a copy of the book from Joseph-Beth. Each person could bring two copies of the book for Palin to sign, Joseph-Beth employees said.

The vouchers, labeled with letters A through W, were gone long before the event.

[…]

Kaye Hughes of Lexington brought her daughter Kacie, a fourth-grader. The two secured their two books, which they will give to Kaye’s mother and sister for Christmas, on Nov. 16, the first day they were made available. Even though the meet-and-greet was short, the Hugheses said meeting Palin and her daughter Piper made for an exciting evening.

“They were really trying to keep the line moving, but she shook both our hands and asked Kacie about school and just held onto her hand while she talked,” Kaye said. “It was cool to meet Piper, too. They’re both just very nice.”

Tammy Pickett and Jennifer Cross’s smiles and neon green sweatshirts shone across the store as they waited for their turn. Pickett embroidered both shirts, which read, “I came to meet the 45th president.” She said she made similar sweatshirts when she met President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on their campaign trails.

Pickett said Palin liked the shirts so much she made an exception to her normal rule of signing only books; Palin signed both sweatshirts and had the women pose with her for a photo.

Gary Chiero, 59, from Columbus, Ohio, also dressed for the occasion — in a red track suit; red, white and blue T-shirt; backpack and baseball cap, all embroidered with the phrase “Palin Man.” He said he’s worn the outfit to about 10 of her book signings.

Tim Moss of Nicholasville planned to give one of his signed books as a gift, but he said the experience was a present to himself as he spent his birthday evening waiting with fellow ticket-holders.

“I teased my wife and told her when I got the tickets that I was going to spend my birthday with another woman, but she was OK with it when she found out who it was,” Moss said. “It’s definitely going near the top of the list of memorable birthdays.”

Jacqueline Sprague at WTVQ Channel 36 writes (view video on website):

Hundreds of people, of all ages, packed Joseph-Beth Booksellers at Lexington Green Wednesday night to see Sarah Palin who was signing copies of her latest book America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag.”She’s a big role model of mine and I just love all the things she supports. My husband’s in the Marine Corp and I’m just a very strong Republican and I’m glad to be here to see her,” says Kayla Lee of Richmond.

“We like Sarah a lot. We’ve been to Alaska four times and we like Alaska,” explains Mary Kay & Frank Weymouth of Nicholasville.

“I’m a fan of Sarah’s. I saw her over at Women of Joy in Louisville and was really inspired,” comments Dian Watz of Winchester.

600 tickets were handed out to the event and some people drove hours and even came from different states to meet Palin.

“It took us probably 2 and a half hours to get here. We’re very excited. We’re very big Sarah Palin Fans.We just really like her. We think that she’s down to earth, she’s a mother and she’s very intelligent no matter what others may say,” comments Jennifer Cross of Jamestown, KY.

“I’ve been following her book signing tour. I followed the first one, Going Rogue in American and I did like 7 stops there and have got to know her and her organization and I believe in what they’re doing,” says Greg Chiero of Columbus, OH.

And Palin’s supporters hope she decides to run for President in 2012.

“We’re for it. We’ll give her our vote, just like we did when she was the VP candidate,” explains the Weymouths.

“I wasn’t able to vote when she was running in the election with John McCain. I’m looking forward to hopefully voting for her in 2012,” says Lee.

Fans Wait Overnight for Sarah Palin’s Brentwood Book Signing

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 2, 2010

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Hundreds of people attended Governor Palin’s book signing at her book signing at Costco in Brentwood, Tennessee yesterday.  One person spent 42 hours in the parking lot waiting for Governor Palin in spite of the rain and cold.  According to Tina Andreadis from HarperCollins, the book tour stops have averaged 800 to 1000 people per stop.

Bonnie Burch at the Tennessean reports:

Moments after leaving the executive-style wooden desk where Sarah Palin signed their copies of her new book, Nancy Henrich of Nashville and Janice Kay of Brentwood hugged each other as their eyes brimmed with tears.  

The two women didn’t even know each other early Wednesday morning before stepping into a long line of Palin fans awaiting a chance to catch a moment with the former Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor.

But after waiting hours in a cold Costco parking lot, the two became fast friends.

“She reflects exactly what this country is about,” said Henrich, a grandmother of seven. “I want a Palin America.”

[…]

“This tour has been very high energy. Everywhere we go, we’ve averaged between 800 to 1,000 people a stop,” said Tina Andreadis, a vice president and director of publicity at Harper Collins.

Only 1,000 wristbands were available for those wishing to see Palin. Liv Miller of Brentwood camped out in the rainy, cold parking lot for 42 hours to be the first person to meet Palin, who is also the star of TLC’s reality show Sarah Palin’s Alaska.

Admired for values

After seeing information about the Brentwood event posted on Palin’s Facebook page, Ronna Mason and her family traveled from their home in Dothan, Ala., to see the political figure.

“I think it’s her family values that I admire so much. She’s just an amazing person,” she said.

Before the general event, Palin met with parents of children with special needs and a group of veterans who meet in the Costco’s café area every Friday morning.

“She told us that she appreciated the service we did for our country. And she is even prettier and more vivacious to what you see on the television,” said John Frame, who served in the U.S. Army from 1962 to 1988.

With only Costco members and their guests able to enter the store, the event was a boon for the local membership warehouse club.

“Since this was announced about two weeks ago, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in new membership applications. It’s been a tremendous benefit to our members,” said Janet Kilgore, who handles marketing for the local Costco.

WATE.com wrote:

People camped out and lined up before dawn in Nashville Wednesday to get a signed copy of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s new book.

Palin signed copies of “America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag” at a Costco in Brentwood as part of her national book tour.

The veterans who have been meeting at the Brentwood Costco every week for the last 10 years were the first to get her signature.

“She recognizes the value of the military,” one commented.

WSMV Channel 4 TV reported:

People began lining up Tuesday night outside the Costco in Cool Springs all night for a chance to meet her.

“I just admire her so much, and you know I just thought I’m just going to do it,” said Brentwod resident Wendy Ivester, who was at the event. “She is very beautiful and personable and just sincere. I’m a conservative also, and I just agree with what she stands for.”

“I’m thankful that she stands for godly values. That means a lot to me,” said Columbia resident Celia Hampton, who was at the book signing.

The book signing ran from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
