Editorial Reviews

Review

Love her or hate her, people are drawn to Sarah Palin. Now, a new book wants you to color her. One year after the race for the White House, publishers have released several books about the GOP vice presidential candidate. The most anticipated is her own memoir, "Going Rogue: An American Life," which lands on store shelves on Nov. 17 and is tops in pre-orders on Amazon and Barnes & Noble's websites. Will there be parodies? You betcha. In fact, the two spoof books share the same title. "Going Rouge: Sarah Palin - An American Nightmare" features essays by writers for The Nation, a liberal magazine. The other is "Going Rouge -- The Sarah Palin Rogue Coloring and Activity Book" by husband and wife team Julie Sigwart and Michael Stinson. "That other book just has a bunch of words," joked Stinson of The Nation's book. "We got pictures!" But coloring pictures is only half of it. There are mazes such as "Help Sarah find her way to the White House" (hint: it's impossible) and a cut-out paper doll page titled "Dress Sarah for Success!" (wardrobe options include an Alaskan wolf pelt skirt). There's also a word search with this theme: "Sarah wins nomination for Pres! Who will she pick for her Veep?" Names to be found include Rush Limbaugh, Joe the Plumber, and Hairstylist. Stinson, 57, and his wife are long-time liberal political activists who live in Ocean Pines, Md., and work as graphic artists. He is also well acquainted with the Alaskan terrain. He worked there as a uranium prospector in the 1970s. At one point the helicopter he was flying in crashed over the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and Stinson, along with the rest of crew, spent a week in the remote wilderness before they were found. ("We actually did talk about cannibalism.") Echoing Palin's "drill, baby, drill" statement from her vice presidential debate, he said the goal of the coloring book is to have it "sell, baby, sell!" He called the response to date "phenomenal," especially among bookstores in Alaska. "We decided to do something playful and spontaneous," said Stinson, who used to collect every issue of Mad Magazine. "We also figured a coloring book was the perfect vehicle in which to lampoon her." --Stephen Lowman, The Washington Post

If you have a sense of humor, you'll like this one. Funny political humor that doesn't pull any punches. I think it will appeal to more liberal people, of course. However, some progressive conservatives will get the joke. Personally, I'd like to see an entire series covering more politicians and giving all of them this kind of treatment.

You betcha... a book truly befitting ol Sarah and her followers. I'm an Alaskan, and the only thing funnier than this book is Sarah herself.

This is a wonderful piece of American political culture, and in many ways a deceptively simple explanation of everything wrong with Ms. Palin.

Should you get this? You betcha!

I think this book is too funny! It was given to me as a gag gift (obviously, as it is a coloring book for adults) and I ordered two more for my father (an extremely hardcore republican that voted for Bush... TWICE! He knew once Palin was chosen as McCain's running mate the race was over) and one for his best friend (a hardcore Democrat like me). Every year on Christmas Eve, since I was about 11 or 12, we all go over to their house and exchange gifts... mostly gag gifts & political gag gifts (like the George W. toilet bowl brush, or commemorative Obama plate and bobble head) for a few hours of bipartisan jabs, jokes and laughter. The next morning my ribs usually hurt from laughing so hard. I know that both of them will find this as funny as I did, because even though they are on polar opposite sides of the political spectrum, both of them are intelligent enough to take it for what it is meant to be and will know that it is a joke... a coloring book aimed at adults (which in my mind makes it even funnier) poking fun at Palin. Last year I (democrat) gave my father (republican) a book called "Help, Mom there are liberals under my bed" which, like the rest in the series, actually is a real children's book (unlike this book which is obviously for adults). I gave my husband, also a democrat (I am tolerant of other people's views, but if he were a republican that would have been a deal breaker... j/k), the book "The Great Derangement", which was not a gag gift, yet still political thereby making it pertinent to the tradition. I gave my Dad's best friend (democrat) the book, "The 3 little pigs go to the white house" (re: the Bush Administration) again obviously aimed at adults.Read more ›

it's a joke book about a joke of a politician. This book treats Palin exactly as she deserves to be treated, as a silly bimbo pushed on the gullible, it may be the most enduring thing to come from her "political career".

This is a typical example of how liberals try to make fun of us true conservatives. We do not care about the fact that Sarah is not very bright. We do not need smart leaders; we need leaders who will make a difference and are courageous enough to make mindless statements. Because liberals are so in love with reason and logic, they do not realize that Palin's thoughts have a deep Zen wisdom, full of paradoxes that over-educated Obama-loving anti-life gay communists will not be able to understand.
One of biggest weaknesses of the book is the fact that it is not an easy coloring and activity book. We managed to do the coloring just fine. However, our family got together and even though we spent hours helping each other trying to figure out the puzzles, we were unable to solve the word puzzles and many of the other activities. We first got worried that we were not smart enough for this book, but then we contacted all our cousins, who had graduated high school. Even they could not solve the puzzles!!! This book should come with a warning that makes it clear how difficult the puzzles are.
