You betcha! Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Wasilla, Alaska's, most famous media figure and vice presidential candidate, will soon be following in the footsteps of Hulk Hogan, Valerie Bertinelli and Santa Claus when she appears at the Mall of America
on Dec. 7 to sign copies of her new memoir, "Going Rogue."
For those of you not planning (unwilling?) to attend the sure-too-be-mobbed affair in the giant mall's Rotunda, hosted by Barnes and Noble, we have news: Palin has fired up a new Twitter account and is said to be ready to post a stream of 140-character updates as she bolsters her frequent flyer miles account jetting around the country while on book tour.
She's got 13,000 followers. She's on 593 lists
. And as of this morning, there are precisely 0, zip, nada, no tweets for them to feast on. That said, she's been updating her Facebook page
(973,752 supporters) like a fiend. Sample:
"We're in the process of arranging interviews with local and national media. An interview with Oprah Winfrey is already scheduled, and I'm also hoping to have the opportunity to talk with Bill O'Reilly, Barbara Walters, Sean Hannity, Greta Van Susteren, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham, Dennis Miller, Tammy Bruce, and others, including local Alaska personalities Bob & Mark and Eddie Burke. (Variety is the spice of life!)"
O'Reilly, Hannity, Van Susteren, Beck, Limbaugh, Levin, Ingraham, Miller, Bruce. There's some variety for ya, wink wink.
Oh, Levi's been busy, too
: The father of Bristol Palin's son will be making an appearance of a different sort of his own -- in Playgirl. In fact, Levi's going to be stripping for the skin mag's cameras on Nov. 16. That's the same day Palin's book is set to be released.
Now that's going rogue.
