Sarah Palin has so much more to tell us

“Dear Beltway Confidential: Buy the book. Luv ya, SP.”     (AP)

Wow. Really? Sarah Palin's forthcoming book, “Going Rogue,” has displaced whatever Dan Brown recently wrote and the latest sugar rush from Mitch Albom, for the top seller spot on the Barnes and Noble website. The book will be available Nov. 17 for $28.99. Notes CNN:

The forthcoming book has also vaulted up Amazon.com's bestseller list, currently holding the No. 3 spot just behind Glenn Beck's “Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government.”

Excited book-buyers include: Rick Santorum. He told National Review Online that the book is a chance for Palin to show her “thoughtful side.” In other news, Slate political writer John Dickerson claims the title for Palin's memoir comes from an unflattering October 2008 piece in Slate, written by John Dickerson:

Has Sarah Palin “gone rogue”? For the last few weeks, Republicans inside and outside the McCain campaign have speculated about those moments when Palin and John McCain have appeared to disagree.

Whatever the case, we are warned by incisive, voice-of-the-culture Dow Jones Market Watch that, ahem, “Sarah Palin-mania could start up again.”

If the book flies off shelves at the stores, we will know — for sure — that Palin has commercial appeal, too. That's when you'll see the media lining up to ask her to host television and radio programs. And Palin-mania will once again go full throttle.

Indeed, sirs! (Did it ever really end?)
