Sarah Palin's ex-aide is working on a manuscript for a yet unreleased book, but supposed quotes from Palin have already started appearing in the media.
Stories about the 500-page manuscript were first published in the Anchorage Daily News on Friday. However additional details were published on Politico on Tuesday.
I hate this damn job, Palin wrote in an April 28, 2009 email to then-aide Frank Bailey, a few months before her July 2009 resignation from office, according to Politico.com.
A month later, according to Bailey, Palin reconsidered issuing another public statement about her support for beauty pageant contestant Carrie Prejean, who had voiced her support for traditional marriage during a question and answer session during the Miss USA pageant in May of 2009.
If I call those reporters then I'm on the hook to answer all their other questions they want, Palin wrote, according to Bailey.
In another e-mail in June, according to Bailey, Palin described former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich and the Republican Party as egotistical, narrow minded machine goons. The assessment came after the National Republican Congressional Campaign Committee rescinded an invitation for Palin to speak at a fundraising dinner that month in favor of Gingrich.
Yes, (Newt/GOP) are egotistical, narrow minded machine goons... but all the more reason God protected me from getting up on stage in front of 5000 political and media 'elites' to praise him, then it be shown across the nation. Palin wrote.
At some point Newt would have shown his true colors anyway and we would have been devastated having known we'd earlier prostituted ourselves up in front of the country introducing him and acting like that good ol' rich white guy is the savior of the party, she wrote.
In a January 2006 e-mail, Palin said lies about her family would keep her from running for governor in November of that year, citing one rumor that her oldest son Track was not fathered by her husband Todd, the Atlantic reported.
I want to know right now who said it, who would ever lie about such a thing ... this is the type of bull**** lie about family that WILL keep me from running for Governor, she asked Scott Heyworth, then a member of the Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority. Heyworth told Todd Palin that some law enforcement friends had made the claim.
