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!

Cars 2 (G)

Talking cars have come a long way since Knight Rider, but even Pixar, animation’s reigning heavyweight, can’t quite make them A-list. In this overstuffed sequel to the 2006 hit, Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and Tow Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) leave Radiator Springs for Tokyo, Italy and England to participate in a World Grand Prix. A James Bond-esque subplot involving espionage is flashy and fun, but seems like overcompensation for relatively unmemorable characters.
