Sarah Palin's Book Tour of Bumblefuck U.S.A. Coming to Sam's Club Far From You

Posted By on Tue, Nov 17, 2009 at 1:40 PM

If you haven't heard, former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin is out today with her new book Going Rogue.

The 432-page tome is already getting some critical reviews from those who say Palin doesn't always get her facts straight in the book.

Honestly, though, who cares?! Palin was never about authenticity. She was about spontaneity!

Like that time in St. Louis during the VP debate when she casually asked Joe Biden, "Hey, can I call you Joe?" and then used the informality to belittle him. "Say it ain't so, Joe, there you go again pointing backwards again."

Or that time that time that she -- or her handlers -- came to St. Louis and dropped tens of thousands of dollars on clothes and accoutrements at the Saks Fifth Avenue.

Given Palin's ties to St. Louis and her affinity for our stores, we here at Daily RFT figured Palin would give our fair city a visit during her book tour.

Think again.

Apparently St. Louis is too cosmopolitan (read Democrat) for the former Alaska governor.

St. Louis isn't the only city overlooked by Palin either. Even though she's swinging through states such as New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Minneapolis, Palin is avoiding the major cities of NYC, Detroit, Philly, Pittsburgh and Minneapolis.

Instead, Palin will be places like the Meier store in Fort Wayne, Indiana; the Sam's Club in Washington, Pennsylvania; and the Army/Air Force PX in Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

In other words, look for Palin everywhere you aren't.
