    Newsmax says that you can buy Palin's book for $5. Strange price drop before the book is released.

    Sounds like someone bought a crapload to use as a give-away in some sort of promotion. Not unusual at all. As I recall, someone did that with Hillary's It Takes A Hamlet, or whatever it was called.

    I think it was It Takes a Nanny based on personal experience.

    it is a promotional offer if you subscribe to NEWSMAX magazine. It is a common marketing gimmick; take a best selling book and bundle it with a subscription to a magazine. Marketing 101.

    I think that's with a year long subscription to the magazine. I can't post any links yet, but I did hear about it a few days ago. Still, it's not much when you consider all the hype that's been going on over it. She's showing up on Oprah November 16Th. I'm sure Oprah will have read the book. It should be interesting to hear her take on it. Personally, I wouldn't walk across the street to get one if they were handing them out for free.
    I wonder what they'll talk about.. Maybe Palin will give Oprah tips on how to trap beavers. :lol:

    Isn't it terrible how the truth tends to destroy liberal myths.
