Nick Gillespie on Joe McGinniss' Sarah Palin Bio in the Washington Post


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.

To see how it ends, go here.

I wrote about Sarah Palin in the March 2010 Reason, in an article called "Myth Alaska: Sarah Palin Bounces a Reality Check."
