Sam Tanenhaus' New Yorker review of Sarah Palin's book, as well as another book about the former governor, contains this nugget: Palin, though notoriously ill-travelled outside the United States, did journey far to the first of the four colleges she attended, in Hawaii. She and a friend who went with her lasted only one semester. “Hawaii was a little too perfect,” Palin writes. “Perpetual sunshine isn’t necessarily conducive to serious academics for eighteen-year-old Alaska girls.” Perhaps not.
I just received a media advisory alerting me that "EARLY SHOW co-anchor Harry Smith will conduct an exclusive interview with Chuck and Sally Heath, Gov. Sarah Palin’s parents, at their home in Wasilla, Alaska, on Saturday, Sept. 27. The interview will be broadcast on THE EARLY SHOW on Monday, Sept. 29 (7:00-9:00AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network." Call me soft, but this gives me the willies. It's one thing to spotlight Palin's husband, whose overactive role in her public duties suggests he could do with constant media oversight.
