    She wanted a staff made up of huskies and drunks.

    I just woke up from a dream. In my dream, I heard a voice: “I, Sarah Louise Palin, do solemnly swear…"

    They have the most amazing pharmacological treatment for nightmares available now. You should check it out.

    In case anyone was wondering, these excerpts are for real. Garry Trudeau received one of only three advance copies of the book. http://andrewsullivan.thedailybeast.com/2011/09/rogue-alert.html

    Does Roland not realize that when the book is published, his tweets will be compared against it?

    Has anyone on the Fox team ever cared that their statements could be proven wrong? The true believers won’t check, and the people who do are obviously un-American.

    If anything starts to blow up, just state you were always right from the beginning and blame the problem on the left.

    What amazes me is that the USA allows a foreign national to play games with their political process!

    I have to wonder when China (or ???) will buy their own “faux news” network to influence US policy.

    This remains an entertaining week of strips, but I can’t understand why Joe McGinniss called the book “The Rogue”. Sarah Palin is about as much of a rogue as is my lemon zester, although, unlike Palin, my zester works reliably and hasn’t quit.

    Does anyone still take Palin seriously, and, if so, why?

    I don’t watch TV news, but I have read that Fox is the highest rated news program. If it is bad as many of you say it is, how do you know that? Are you watching it and thus contributing to its popularity, or are you simply parroting the opinions of whatever news source you favor?

    The Chicago Tribune isn’t running this week’s strips. They say it violates their ‘fairness’ policy. So sad.

    This is the only far-right network, so it attracts a large number who love the far right. However, if you take the other networks together, plus the likes of the BBC which is very popular in this country, then Fox is swamped. It’s by using a multiplicity of sources that we get perspective – not by relying on only one source, which is the MO of far too many on the right.
    By the way, to the degree that I watch television news at all, I keep an eye on Fox – but in all the years I’ve been doing it, they have not changed a bit, so it’s kind of a pointless exercise.

    I get all my news from Doonesbury. Anything else like Europe are just fluff pieces to fill in the time on 24 hour TV

    These strips aren’t about Palin, they are about America, and about the way the media operate.


    Palin is not the disease, she is the symptom. The disease will keep creating Palins unless something happens to change our course, and I don’t see that happening any time soon.


    When do we see the book on Perry? On Bachmann?


    Of course, as one person remarked yesterday, those who love Sarah won’t read or believe McGinniss’ book or care, and those who fear her will find what they want to find. The person who is genuinely neutral in his judgement of Palin might be influenced by the book, but he’s not to sort to read this kind of book either. ( I think he lives Missouri. But there may even be two or three others like him. )


    Still, good to have this stuff down, if only for the sake of future historians, if there should be such.
