Frank Bailey, a former aide to Sarah Palin in her inner circle, has written a tell-all portrayal of Sarah Palin, which will be released tomorrow, May 23.
Sarah Palin is known as the youngest and the first woman that served as Governor of Alaska.
In his book Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years, Bailey says the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee was ready to quit as Alaska governor months before her actual resignation and eager to move to more lucrative opportunities, reported USA Today. Bailey based his book on thousands of e-mails since the time he started work with Palin in 2006 through her term as governor.
Bailey portrays Palin as a self-serving rule breaker who loves to be a victim.
In 2009, I had this sense that if she made it to the White House and I stayed silent I can never forgive myself, Bailey said to the Associated Press.
An unpublished manuscript of the book was leaked in February. It portrayed Palin as consumed with every slight of her political opponents. In it, Bailey gripes about Palin's inability to adhere to a schedule. Getting Sarah to meetings and events was like nailing Jell-O to a tree, Bailey wrote. Sarah might fail to honor, at the last minute, the smallest commitments, and making excuses for her became a painful burden.''
Regarding the manuscript, a spokeswoman for Sarah PAC said that Palin would not respond to untruth.
According to Bailey, Palin responded to her failed run for vice presidency with her quitting as Alaska governor in Feburary 2009. Five months later, Palin said at her resignation that she did not want to be the same kind of lame duck governor who announces she's not seeking re-election only to travel the country or the world riding out their term. What she wanted was more high-profile opportunities.
Bailey wrote the book not only to show the real Palin to the world, but to serve as a warning to others who may follow her blinded, reported the Associated Press.
I certainly don't hate her, but I look at a lot of wasted opportunities on her part, Bailey said to the AP. He would love her to read the book and said, Palin is very ambitious, and it will not surprise me at all to see her fight and try to protect herself.
Other books concerning Palin include an upcoming book by Levi Johnston, father of Palin's grandson Tripp, and The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin by Joe McGinnis, who temporarily moved next door to the Palin family in Alaska.
