Item description for Sarah: How a Hockey Mom Turned Alaska's Political Establishment Upside Down by Kaylene Johnson & Cassandra Campbell...
Overview Sarah Palin, a hockey mom and small-town mayor, thought her dream of making a difference in the male-dominated realm of Alaska politics was over when she clashed with the state chairman of her Republican Party and went head-to-head with the powerful Republican governor. In 2006, she became a long-shot candidate for governor, demanding a higher ethical standard in state government. Then, fate intervened. Her populist reform message suddenly became front-page news when a major political scandal rocked Alaska politics. Alaskans began listening to her, and they liked what they heard. Kaylene Johnson is a writer and long-time Alaskan. Her award-winning articles have appeared in Alaskan Wildernes Discovery Guide, Alaska magazine, the Los Angeles Times, Spirit magazine, and other publications. She is married with two sons and two grandsons.

Super Silly Sarah Star Simpleton Sawdust Oct 24, 2009
To Reason Why is not the question. Someone left this book behind and there was not a thing to look at while I waited patentiently for my appointment. The pain of the extraction was not as awful as reading this work making me wonder if the tree huggers are right. Certainly a waste of a good tree to deliever a prduct that at best might serve to stablize a table with a leg too short. Her impressive background might place her on a par with the Virgin Mary or in political terms more of a Mary Magdalane. She is a true Fairey Princess of high moral values and thical standards that are so low you could trip over them. Idaho's loss is our pain and the lunatic fringe's gain. I strongly recommend this book for the weak minded. Two stars I have awared this book simply for the fact that the publisher deserves credit for being able to make a small mint off the fools that still don't have a hint about this leader of dimwits.
A true patriot Oct 20, 2009
I loved this book. To be honest, there has been alot of controversy over Sarah Palin and I wanted to read up on her background and form my own opinion. I couldn't put the book down. It was easy to read and in a time of economical, political, and ethical uncertainty this book was able excite me and encourage me. She is not just another politician. She is a strong, God-centered, family oriented woman who happens to be in politics. She embodies honesty, integrity, and transparency. She is a breath of fresh air.

I got this book for myself and one for my brother. We both loved the book very much. It was interesting and not boring at all.
Complete Idiot! Aug 26, 2009
If you want to see the real Sarah Palin just go to [...] and listen to her mindless rants. Come on she's a complete moron. I hope that people don't look up to her they'd be just as stupid.
Cuts through the mud Aug 20, 2009
What an enigma. Sarah Palin is a hard to know from available writings in the marketplace of ideas. So, this book cuts through the mud. It is short on politics and long on personality. It is not a book to dig out political positions of Alaska's former governor, but it is a good book to see how she came to be what she is. It becomes clear in this book that through her life and its experiences, she is a strong-willed person who sets her face like a flint toward the direction she wishes to go. From the stories of her high school experiences to the stories regarding her political positioning, it became apparent to me that this is a person whom I would like to know -- a different opinion than that of what I had from merely reading what others say about her.
