Palin Periodical Hits Newsstand

Camp Buehring, Kuwait - Alaska Governor Sarah ...Image via Wikipedia
Sarah Palin: Faith, Family, Freedom, a glossy 100-page magazine published by a subsidiary of the IMG marketing firm and Imagine That Publishing, will be available through April 30 for those willing to dole out $8.99 for the periodical purportedly prepared without Palin's knowledge or authorization.

Editor/Publisher Steven LeGrice, founding editor of  In Touch magazine, said the journal is all in the words of the former almost 1-term Alaska Governor and current Fox News commentator without any opinion added in, which sounds like a fact-checker's and copy editor's worst nightmare. The periodical is replete with family photos the publisher obtained from private sources.

Included in the publication are segments on "Where Sarah Palin Stands on the Big Issues," and "The Wit & Wisdom of Sarah," which begs the question: Are there enough photos to fill 99 pages?  There are photos of Palin on her Going Rogue book tour and childhood pictures aplenty, including one featuring Palin, her siblings, and a dead bear bleeding over a stump. No, really.

"TUOL" believes LeGrice missed a golden opportunity by not having the magazine open from the right in honor of its namesake's politics. Wonder if Sen. John McCain plans on purchasing a copy, if for no other reason, than to complete the puzzle page.
