Palinbots Hiss and Writhe,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years (Hardcover)
One can't help but be impressed by Bailey's honesty about his infatuation with Palin and how it lead him down into the black hole of her narcissism, lies, and paranoia. This is what she's like, up close and personal, folks. Isn't she pretty? Yes. Isn't she nice? No. Bailey's saga demonstrates the classic case of a pretty face hiding a very ugly inside.
I suspect his co-authors are responsible for the delightful flashes of wit and incisive phrasing that decorate Frank's story like diamonds on gold.
You can tell by the quality of the 1 star reviews that he's hit a big ol' nerve with Palins deluded fans. Frank Bailey has apparently committed the ultimate crime by demonstrating that it _is_ possible to snap out of delusion and admit that your idol has dirty clay feet.

The flying monkeys (Palinbots) arrived yesterday in droves and they are flinging poo. I'm only a few pages into it. I'm at the part where Todd asks Bailey to order new signs and Sarah blows a gasket when she sees the new signs. Then Todd doesn't fess up to giving the go ahead. That would have been enough to send many people packing but not Bailey. I'm starting to see the Blind Allegiance.

Zascha. Do you mean the guidelines of posting a review after you have read the book. Yes, I am following the guidelines. After completing my read, I will post a review based on what I thought after reading the complete book. I have not yet posted a review on this book because it would be dishonest to express an opinion of a book that I haven't read. hint hint

Zascha, I think you got as much mileage out of my typo as you are going to get. I'm like Audrey. Sometimes we put our comments through spell check and sometimes we get lazy. I apologize to anyone who has had to read my errors. I stand by my request that people run their comments through a spell checker. The grammar and spelling errors from the post I commented on were so numerous that it was annoying.

Lucky you! Some of us misspell or make typos and spell check makes it easier on the reader.
