Going Rogue: An American Life by
Well Writen And Gives You An Insight Of Goverment And Palin's Life
On September 3, 2008 Alaska Governor Sarah Palin gave a speech at the
Republican National Convention that electrified the nation and instantly
made her one of the most recognizable women in the world.
As chief executive of America's largest state, she had built a record as a
reformer who cast aside politics-as-usual and pushed through changes
other politicians only talked about: Energy independence. Ethics reform.
And the biggest private sector infrastructure project in U.S. history. While
revitalizing public school funding and ensuring the state met its
responsibilities to seniors and Alaska Native populations, Palin also beat
the political good ol' boys club at their own game and brought Big Oil to
Like her GOP running mate, John McCain, Palin wasn't a packaged and
over-produced candidate. She was a Main Street American woman: a
working mom, wife of a blue collar union man, and mother of five children,
the eldest of whom was serving his country in a yearlong deployment in
Iraq and the youngest, an infant with special needs. Palin's hometown
story touched a populist nerve, rallying hundreds of thousands of ordinary
Americans to the GOP ticket.
But as the campaign unfolded, Palin became a lightning rod for both
praise and criticism. Supporters called her refreshing, honest, a kitchen-
table public servant they felt would fight for their interests. Opponents
derided her as a wide-eyed Pollyanna unprepared for national leadership.
But none of them knew the real Sarah Palin.
In this eagerly anticipated memoir, Palin paints an intimate portrait of
growing up in the wilds of Alaska; meeting her lifelong love; her decision to
enter politics; the importance of faith and family; and the unique joys and
trials of life as a high-profile working mother. She also opens up for the first
time about the 2008 presidential race, providing a rare, mom's-eye view of
high-stakes national politics - from patriots dedicated to Country First to
slick politicos bent on winning at any cost.
Going Rogue traces one ordinary citizen's extraordinary journey, and
imparts Palin's vision of a way forward for America and her unfailing hope
in the greatest nation on earth.
