Thoughts For the Thoughtless: Sarah Palin Edition.


Awesome review of Sarah Palin’s “book”:

Now we are faced with the daunting task of wrapping our minds around the Palin memoir Going Rogue, appearing atop a bestseller list near you. Millions of copies will be sold of a book written by someone who can’t write, intended for an audience that doesn’t read, about the thoughts of a person who doesn’t think. God is dead.

One thought on “Thoughts For the Thoughtless: Sarah Palin Edition.

  1. Aside from the attempt at humor (or the possibility that the Palin phenemona could possibly be read as some sort of dialectic), I think the clever, feel good summation actually gets it all wrong.

    She is someone who doesn’t MUCH write, and the people who buy it don’t MUCH read, and its about her thoughts, as a person who don’t spend a lot of TIME thinking, reflectively.

    This is a very different sort of book that the one described above in the quote. A very different sort of act and phenomena. Its not so much marked by its shallowness or emptiness. I DO think people who by the book read it, I do think that Palin thought about her thought when “writing” it. It means, at least in part, that thinking and writing and reading are a significant part of what gives on political capital, still. But not only that. An American sentiment is attempting to gain a body.
