Gov. Sarah Palin will write her memoirs.

The book comes out in Spring 2010 — the year she is up for re-election.

“There’s been so much written about and spoken about in the mainstream media and in the anonymous blogosphere world, that this will be a wonderful, refreshing chance for me to get to tell my story, that a lot of people have asked about, unfiltered,” the Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate said during a brief telephone interview Tuesday with The Associated Press.

“Wonderful” and “refreshing”? Is it going to be a book or a hygiene product?

One chapter will be entitled “How to Wrap a Bear for Mailing.”*
