How To Sell Crap

Sarah Palin will be selling a new “book” in November.

The Alaska ex-governor and former Republican vice presidential candidate, whose memoir Going Rogue has sold more than 2 million copies, has been working on a tribute to American values.

It will include “selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her,” according to HarperCollins, along with “the nation’s founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies.”

It sounds like she’s going to be printing out 200 pages of Facebook entries and asking $25 per copy. And a lot of people will buy it.

Jeez, what a racket.
