Frank Bailey Speaks on Sarah Palin and His Upcoming Tell-All Book

Here is the first video interview of Frank Bailey, whose story is told in the book Blind Allegiance which hits the stands tomorrow. Frank told the Associated Press: ‘In 2009 I had the sense if she made it to the White House and I had stayed silent, I could never forgive myself.’ To speak up when he saw things he didn’t agree with ‘went against all that investment of time and energy that I put into her,’ said Bailey. He said he ‘shed his family,’ his wife and two kids, to singularly focus on Palin during her rise to the…

The Least of Sarah Palin’s Problems

By Ken Morris (Co-author with Frank Bailey and Jeanne Devon of Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin “My problem is I do have the fire in my belly…” ~Sarah Palin discussing a run for U.S. President with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, May 19, 2011 Where to begin? After about 18 months of living in the rabbit hole of Sarah Palin’s head while co-authoring Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin—insider Frank Bailey’s factual account of being side-by-side with the candidate, then half-term governor and failed vice presidential candidate—I listened to the above quoted interview in dismay. It wasn’t because of the…

Open Thread – Blind Allegiance Eve!

Get ready! Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin is about to hit the shelves tomorrow. Even though you can’t get your hands on it yet, the books have made their way into the secretive back rooms of bookstores across the land. For the next 24 hours, the Swiss Guard, jacked up on triple lattes, will be standing vigilant, with saucer eyes and hair trigger reflexes, ready to spring into action to prevent any unlawful purchasing or peeking. OK, not really. But you still can’t get a copy until tomorrow because of the “strict on sale date” of May 24. I am…

Say it Ain’t So, Joe! Co-Author of Leaked Palin Book Speaks Out

By Ken Morris, co-author of Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin, A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years Mudflats Friends: When I first appeared on Jeanne’s ground-breaking pages well over one year ago, I wrote about participating in the eBay auction to buy a meal with Sarah Palin to benefit a worthy veterans’ charity. A short time later, after losing that auction to what looked like a rigged bid, I then offered through Mudflats an additional $200,000 to that charity if Sarah would answer civil question over a second meal, on the record, with the likes or Jeanne, Rachel Maddow, Shannyn Moore, and Keith Olbermann. While…

America by Heart – Chapter 7, The Indispensable Support of Freedom

This was a sneaky one. I read the title of the chapter thinking it might be anything. Turns out that the hidden message of this chapter is religion. We have hit the “faith” part of “Family, Faith and Flag.” Although (spoiler alert) the next chapter is called “I Hear America Praying” so we might be in for two scoops of religion in this Palin-style crap cone. Let’s get right to it. Page 181 Little Sarah had a transcendant experience when she was eleven years old. She walked out of the cabin and things seemed different when she looked at the mountains….

America by Heart – PICTURES! (in words)

Well, we had a 24-hour breather. A little intermission. A mental sorbet between courses of inedible nonsense, and sheets of trees that died in vain.  And now (rolling up sleeves) we’re ready to begin again. And lucky for us, we can ease back into the whole steaming pile of pulp with… PICTURES! I cannot reproduce any of them, but I will describe them to you so you get the idea. *********************************** 13-year old Sarah Palin, already memorializing the killin’ of stuff on film. She shows the disinterested family pet (a German Shepherd named Rufus) two dead birds she shot. Look! …

America by Heart – Chapter 5, The Rise of the Mama Grizzlies, Part 2

When we last left our “author” she was knee deep, wading through the feminist swamp, trying to slog through while simultaneously engaging in painful contortions of ideology, history, and gender. This half of the chapter is no different. We’ve moved from Hillary Clinton and her bra-burnin’ ways to the earliest suffragettes, and the hard-ass workin’ pioneer chicks of the West. Page 139 It surprises some people to hear that she considers herself a feminist. She is also a “grateful beneficiary” of Title IX, the federal law that mandates equal opportunity in women’s sports in high school and college. (??? She…

America by Heart – Chapter 3, America the Exceptional

Alright, we’re on to Chapter 3… almost half way through this tripe salad. This chapter talks about how we’re the best and we’re number one, but we’re not cocky or arrogant. We have juuuust the right blend of humility and realistic analysis of our specialness to be… well… the best. And once we realize how best we are, there’s a little celebration of free market capitalism at the end and we join Sarah in her little fantasy of calling back Milton Friedman from the grave so he can kick Michael Moore’s ass and show him what capitalism is really all…

America by Heart – Chapter 2, Why They Serve

SPOILER ALERT: It’s not to avoid the long arm of the law and to save your political family a lot of embarrassment, and yourself a stay at the Grey Bar Hotel.  Just thought I’d throw that out there right off the bat. So, why do “they” serve? A broad question that has no simple answer. The reasons that military men and women decide to enlist are many. In the past, many who served never had a choice.  We may as well ask the question, “Why do They Teach?” “Why do They Fight Fires?” “Why do They Heal the Sick?”  But the obvious…

America by Heart – Chapter 1, We the People (Part 2 of 2)

Well, I was better prepared for the second half of this God awful collection of tripe that Sarah Palin calls a “chapter.” “Better prepared” means that I’d pre-medicated with a little fermented sugar cane (rum).  So, let’s not stop and think about it too much.  It’s like ripping off a Band-Aid, just get it over with quick. Welcome back to the blogging of the book. In this installment we’ll discuss the lack of racism in the country, except by the Obamas and their pastor, and we’ll examine the lyin’ Black Congressional Caucus and their attempt to trick us into talking…
