Sarah Palin Magazine Hits Newsstands

Since so many in the mainstream media just won’t give Sarah Palin a fair hearing, her supporters have taken matters into their own hands and produced a magazine of their own.
A new (so far) single-issue magazine concerning the former Republican vice presidential nominee has hit newsstands and convenience stores around the country.
The 100-page glossy magazine claims to present “Sarah Palin: The Untold Story … in her own words!” –and it was produced, according to its publisher, without her knowledge.

The magazine contains previously unpublished family pictures of Palin, including her as a child with her siblings, one of her holding a cardboard box of freshly caught fish, and another with moose antlers.
Another photo shows a woman carrying a placard that reads “Palin 2012” above a statement from Palin saying: “My desire is to help our country in whatever role that may be, and I cannot predict doors will be open in 2012.”
The magazine, whose initial print run is several hundred thousand, is reportedly selling well. It will remain on sale until the end of April.
