Blind Allegiance To Sarah Palin

By Frank Bailey

It was inevitable that someone who worked with Sarah Palin would write a revealing book. Nowadays it doesn’t even have to be a book. The story can go viral online and spread around the world with no way to stop it.

The book would be funny if it were not so sad. Sarah’s sweetness and light routine is a big con. Her voters and supporters were left in the lurch when she saw a career opportunity and left Alaska. Her financial backers were taken on an expensive ride. Her family was put on display for her own political ends. Her handlers tried to keep members of the press from doing their jobs. You feel sorry for anybody that has to be around her.

In summary, she is not meticulous with her words (ask any reporter), makes the wrong assumptions (ask any voter), takes things personally (ask David Letterman), and does not always do her best (ask Gabby Giffords).

When someone like this rises to leadership in an organization, it is a sign of serious trouble.
