There are a lot of interesting tidbits to be found in the tell-all penned by Frank Bailey, an aide to Sarah Palin while she was governor of Alaska, which draws on Bailey’s firsthand experiences and Palin’s own e-mails. Much of it confirms what we already know about Palin namely, that she’s obsessed with her portrayal in the media, with gossip about her family, and with slights from her enemies. But of all the book’s revelations, one that might actually be relevant/entertaining going forward, if Palin runs for president, is the nasty e-mail she wrote about Newt Gingrich.
Here’s what Palin sent to her “team” after her scheduled appearance speaking about Gingrich at a fund-raising event was canceled:
“Yes, (Newt/GOP) are egotistical, narrow minded machine goons but all the more reason God protected me from getting up on stage in front of 5000 political and media ‘elites’ to praise him, then it be shown across the nation.” Palin wrote in the e-mail.
Yeesh. Can’t wait for the next time those two try to pretend to like each other. Also, Good ol’ rich white guy? In private, Sarah Palin kind of sounds like Markos Moulitsas.
