Whatever Happened to Loyalty?

One of Sarah Palin’s trusted advisers is planning a tell-all memoir, drawing upon thousands of personal e-mails during his time with the former Alaska governor to paint what his agent calls an expose of the inner workings of her operation.  Frank Bailey rose from a campaign volunteer to administration official and figure in the “Troopergate” scandal that fixated the public’s attention during Palin’s vice presidential bid in 2008. A preliminary draft of the unpublished book, tentatively called “Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of our Tumultuous Years,” was leaked to reporters, with excerpts making the rounds on the Internet.

I won’t read it.  I’m not a fan of people who make fast bucks off of the backs of people they formerly supported, aided and abetted.  If this fellow was highly placed and things were done inappropriately, he’s just as guilty as anyone else.  For him to profit from it is unconscionable.

All these ‘kiss and tell’ books are total rubbish.  He may ‘tell all’ but garbage is garbage whether you eat it off a plate or right out of the can.

    So why report on this pop culture garbage? Seems like a waste of time to me!

    Good question, about reading it. Most of the time I don’t! But I like Sarah Palin myself, and her rise from nowhere, to being in the face of many American liberals! And she is a tuff Alaskan woman! And since I have been to Alaska, I appreciate her! Just that simple.

    You know, this is what I’ve thought about the political turncoats, too. Scott McClellan was a lifelong friend of GW Bush, then did his tell-all book. Dick Morris was a friend of the Clintons until he decided to turn on them. This is the same thing. People can make some bucks, so they don’t care.

    Loyalty is worth less than a book deal, apparently. Sad, sad, sad …

    Duty and honour is still old school, but one does not need to be old to join!
