My Washington Post review of Joe McGinniss' new biography of Sarah Palin, The Rogue, is online now.
Here's how it starts:
In an America where a whopping 66 percent of adults hold an unfavorable view of 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin (according to a recent Bloomberg poll), author Joe McGinniss has done something truly remarkable. He actually makes the short-serving former Alaska governor and widely panned reality TV star a slightly more sympathetic character, at least for the regrettable time one wastes reading "The Rogue," his sketchily sourced compendium of low blows and inconsistent accusations.
I wrote about Sarah Palin in the March 2010 Reason, in an article called "Myth Alaska: Sarah Palin Bounces a Reality Check."
