The phenomenal rise of America's most polarizing politician
This is the first full-scale critical biography of Palin, up through her resignation as Alaska governor, and as a potential presidential candidate in 2012. The Lies of Sarah Palin exposes:
• Personal secrets about Sarah Palin's coming of age in Wasilla and her marriage to Todd Palin
• Her extremist religious views and "End of Days" beliefs
• Lies and distortions in Troopergate and the firing of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan
• The secrets surrounding her selection as John McCain's running mate and her duplicities and betrayals during the 2008 presidential campaign
• Her extraordinary penchant for self-promotion and deceit
• Her failures as governor upon her return to Alaska after the campaign
• Her real reasons for quitting as governor of Alaska
• Her lies about Barack Obama's "death panels"
• The strange inner-circle of Washington DC powerbrokers, neoconservative intellectuals and rightwing Christian evangelists who have taken control of Palin's postgubernatorial career
• Her obsession with Barack Obama
The Lies of Sarah Palin is based on more than 100 in-depth interviews and 40,000 pages of revelatory documents. Dunn also places Palin's life in the larger context of U.S. history, politics and culture--from the political corruption that spawned her career in Alaska to the dark underbelly of America's Evangelical right-wing movement that fuels Palin's relentless quest for power.
