Dear Sarah,

Thank you for turning in the manuscript so quickly. I thought only Stephen King could crank out 400 pages in four months! Seriously, there's some terrific material here, and all of us at Harper Collins are thrilled to be publishing your life story.

Before we move ahead, the fact-checking department has asked me to pass along a few notes and comments that may require some revisions on your part.

1. Eric Clapton spells his last name with a C.

More significantly, his publicists tell us that you were not the inspiration for "Layla," and that he doesn't recall ever having an affair with you. Is it possible you've got him confused with another rock star?

2. The mainland of Russia is indeed visible from parts of western Alaska during favorable weather conditions in the Bering Straits. Considering the ridicule you endured over this issue during the campaign, your desire to set the record straight is understandable. Still, 78 pages is a big chunk of the book. Perhaps it's possible to deal with the I-can-see-Russia controversy a bit more succinctly.

1. nice try... but......
the mainland of Russia is not visible from anywhere in Alaska. There is one island that is American and one island that is Russian that on a clear day can see each other.

Sarcasm should always be reality based

3. She needs supervision.
I don't think she's particularly well supervised now.

6. Yes, but Sarah is the smartest person in the room...
...she doesn't need any supervision or anyone telling her what to do.

Doncha know?

7. I don't care if she can see two polar bears humping in Moscow from her front porch
Edited on Wed Nov-04-09 10:37 AM by JBoris
I don't care if she can see the shine from "Prime Minister" Putin's head whilst jogging for a photo shoot.
It doesn't matter, she is an anti-intellectual neocon who floats by on her middle-America cred. She isn't qualified to hold national office, no matter how many countries she can or cannot see.

4. How about getting her to support a few more candidates?
It really helps the Dems.

5. I thought it was common knowledge that Pattie Boyd, wife of George Harrison, was the
inspiration of "Layla".

9. Dems should pay plane fare and buy a new wardrobe
for Palin, she does us good. I can just hear her, "Thanks but no thanks and I'll take it."
