The title says it all: Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years

The title of this insider’s view of Sarah Palin’s gubernatorial and vice-presidential campaigns says it all: Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years (Howard Books, 2011). The author, Frank Bailey, was initially drawn to Palin’s gubernatorial campaign by his belief in her as something different: a charismatic, tell-it-like-it-is, get-er-done political figure who was not part of a political establishment. He quickly became part of her “rag tag” inner circle and, over nearly four years, evolved from besotted supporter to disillusioned chronicler of Palin’s insecurities, intellectual vapidity and irritation with the actual details of governance. Scary to think what might have been … or still could be!

THE BELOVED HEADBANGERS: Sometimes critics can’t be trusted. After last week’s debacle, when I sought critical opinion on a Rihanna show from a writer who was pretty much terrified of her, I decided to go to the public to find out how Godsmack’s current tour is going. According to Ticketmaster’s fan reviews page for Godsmack—which, by the way, is playing at Mandalay Bay on July 8 ($54)—they’re killing it. “Freaking awesome. They literally tore the place down,” wrote “runner4life2519” in the aftermath of the band’s May 29 Milwaukee show.
