Description

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.
