Sarah Palin coming to Mall of America to sign copies of her new "War on Christmas" book

Will she be glitterbombed?
Vice Presidential candidate-turned-unintentional punchline Sarah Palin will be signing copies of her new book at the Mall of America's Barnes & Noble store on Friday, November 22 from 6 until 8 p.m.

WILL THE SECOND TIME BE THE CHARM? Sarah Palin almost signs City Pages "Going Crazy" parody issue

The book, entitled "Good Tidings and Great Joy," explores "the traditional roots and true meaning of Christmas," according to a press release. In other words, it's about one of the gravest threats confronting our civilization today -- the "War on Christmas."

A Time Magazine piece published today hits a few of the book's "highlights":
For readers who want classic Palin, have cheer. There are plenty of references to "dopey-hopey-changey things you hear from politicians," criticisms of the Lamestream Media, digs at "cultural elites," jokes about NPR-loving liberals, mentions of the "unfolding train wreck of Obamacare" and even an allusion to death panels...

A central trope in the book is Palin's disgust and frustration at people saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas." While hitting on various points about the commercialization of the holiday (it's good, it's bad, it's beside the point), she extolls businesses like Hobby Lobby that use religious imagery in advertisements and shames businesses like Target and Wal-Mart who have eschewed ­Christmas for more politically correct terms...

In many ways, Christmas is just the occasion for Palin's book. She argues that Christians are being reviled and marginalized in American society--and that Christian faith should be more central to culture, politics, schools and public squares. Some chapters lean heavy on the evangelism, as she recounts Biblical stories and advocates for more Christ in Christmas. "God," she writes, "is the only cure for what ails us."
The book makes no mention of Palin's future political plans, but with all her doom-and-gloom talk about the marginalization of Christianity in American society, we can't help but dream about how fun a Palin/Bradlee Dean 2016 presidential ticket would be.

If I hear one more thing about this "war on Christmas", I might just snap. I mean, come on ... it goes on for over a month. Furthermore, what other religion gets to shut down government offices and schools for their holidays.

Who in there right mind would would pay money to buy a book she wrote, oh that's right she is not in her right mind herself. It makes sense now.

She is one hot babe, way hotter than the rest of those dried up old hags in politics today, at least the right has it correct when it comes to promoting good looking ladies in office.  The democrats get Hillary, the right gets Sarah, guys who would you chose?

"Rachel Rubin : plz go educate urself. If someone doesnt like someone u dont need to bash her like these trolls. Show me some intelligent. Then talk." Shall I point out the errors in grammar and spelling here, or will someone beat me tot he punch? Plz? Urself? Doesnt? U? Dont? Intelligent...? How can you expect someone who has such horrible diction to be able to express herself intelligently?

Jason Gabbert, actually it's Wrong to pass judgement and act like you should have a say in how others live their lives and find happiness when it doesn't affect you or cause any harm. It's Wrong to deny people equal rights under the law because of your own hangups. It's Right to live and let live, and even Righter to take a stand against unfair discrimination.

Carla Mayer actually hit it on the head. Her book should be called "War on Sarah" because it is more about personal attacks than it is about Christmas. If she's so concerned with saving Christmas, why not fight to stop corporations from staying eternally open on the Holidays forcing low-income retail & fast food workers to miss out on family time? Oh nevermind I forgot she's uncomfortable around Brown people....

Paul Bailey

@Dee Finkelson, so people who don't like Palin are automatically those who rely on food stamps and government assistance? Sounds like you fit in perfectly with Palin's camp.

We go out of our way to comment about people like her because all she does is spread ignorance, fear, and hate.
