Love her or hate her, Sarah Palin will not be ignored. We are living in an era when politicians and experts of all kinds inspire mistrust, and Palin presents herself as the ultimate outsider - just a regular American gal, hunting moose and being a "mama bear" to her cubs.
Of course, this regular gal is a bestselling author, a reality TV star, a regular paid contributor on Fox News and a frequent public speaker, charging $100,000 performance fees, you know, like regular Americans.
Palin will be signing copies of her latest bestseller, America by Heart, on Monday at Borders on Kirby starting at 11a.m. The book tour is yet another long and winding promotional effort that allows her to meet "ordinary men and women who have shared with her their hopes and dreams, their love of country, and their fears about what lies ahead," which were the inspiration for the book.
