Sarah Palinís Going Rogue #3 In Heterophobic San Francisco Despite Ban
http://citizenpalin4president.blogspot.com/2009/12/sarah-palins-going-rogue-3-in.html ^

Liberal booksellers have banned Sarah Palin's book "Going Rogue" and refuse to carry it. They are retarded. I thought Liberals were against banning books. This is anti-free speech. The public in San Francisco demand the book, though, as it is #3 on the San Francisco bestseller list by being sold at Costco in San Francisco (among other stores).

That is so stupid (of course).

T’s OK, I banned San Fransisko from my travel plans a long time ago; beautiful city, made one of the worst dumps by the current culture and lifestyle.

And other threads say that Rogue is the #3 seller in the Bay Area. So what gives? What is the real story? WGAF?

How ironic, since one of the lies they tell about her is that she banned books.

The book is “banned” in FlamingFrisco and it’s still #3. Must be a huge underground movement of the open minded and conservative there.

These same lefties will bitch about Palin trying to “ban” books in Alaska when she runs for the White House.

I live just outside of ‘The People’s Republik of Madistan’ which is the Midwest version of Berkley, CA.

66 copies of her book are available through our library system. Nearly 400 people are on the list to read it.

Encouraging. :)

Not sure if this is sarcasm or not, but it should be common knowledge that liberals do not believe in freedom of speech which disagrees with their values.

Going Rogue was banned by all the private or non-chain book stores and it is still able to climb to #3 in sales

Liberals in San Francisco are, uh, liberal.

The fact that the non-liberal citizenry put up with them is surprising, but then I'm from the Midwest.

Hilarious. Shoot yourself in the foot by losing sales.

Probably not that big of a deal anyway since they are liberal bookstore owners. The clients are probably not the type to read Palin’s book. They are probably more into Dancing with Cats: http://images.google.com/images?q=dancing+with+cats&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=51s9S6n6DIS1tgeKs7ht&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CBgQsAQwAA

Liberals do not believe in freedom of much of anything. They are about to pass legislation which takes away a persons ability to choose not to be insured and, ultimately, what medical coverage they will be forced to have.

One is reminded of the quote from a famous British socialist playwright George Bernard Shaw who was asked what would happen if there were those who did not want to be taken care of by the government. His reply was that those folks would be lined up against a wall and amiably shot.

It turns out that the only “choice” liberals will stand up for is the choice to kill babies.

Now you know why liberals suck at business. They have no economic sense whatsoever. So of course they refuse to carry a hot seller in a down economy.

Moron moonbats will soon be complaining about unfair competition from WalMart, Costco and Amazon destroying their business, jobs and community with unfair business practices like OMG, selling popular items at low prices.

I have been to both bookstores,it is run by people who think they are smart(chattering class). They do not carry mainstream books unless it is my Michael Moore or Al Gore.. They like to think they are artsy while sipping a $7 coffee and when the store goes out of business,they blame it on the chainstores.. Now if these stores carried Going Rogue they would make money,but then the illusion of we are all libs would be shot.. Every time Anne Coulter releases a book i go to Barnes and Noble and ask the same guy to show me were the book is,it pisses him off big time to walk me down to a little place that has Anne's book on display.. They think if you ignore it,it will go away...

389 holds on 59 copies in Tucson.

I gotta hand it to our library people, most of them probably hate her, but they supply demand, as they do with many conservative books.

They still have 10 copies of Queen Nancy's book, if anyone's interested :)

"Santa" gave Going Rogue to me for Christmas and I'm on the last 50 pages. Without a doubt, this is THEEEE BEST PERSON WE COULD EVER FIND TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT!!!

I am so impressed and in awe of her goodness, determination and patriotism!!! In our lifetime, I doubt we could find a more honest, dedicated American with their heart in the right place who truly wants to represent the average citizen without expecting anything in return. I pray she will rescue this country by becoming our next President.

READ THE BOOK!!!

Thanks for posting that. I’ve been trying to decide if I should buy the book or wait for my copy from the library; I’ll order it in the morning...from ‘lefty’ Borders, just to p*ss them off, LOL! :)

Liars.

Can they take a look at themselves and see what they've become?

The downtown B Dalton Books store, at one time, had an exhibit, of all the books that had been banned in the U.S. I wonder if they are carrying Sarah Palin's book.

The IQ of the US would go up exponentially if San Francisco and the Bay Area were to drop into the Pacific Ocean. Liberals out there are not intelligent enough to understand what hypocrites they are day in and day out. I had a run in with one such liberal during the 2008 campaign. Her name was Vicki and she lambasted Governor Palin for going to multiple universities before getting her college degree. Naturally, Vicki is one of those femi-nazi liberals whose age is north of her 50th year and...she still had NOT gotten her own college degree yet. Like I said, too dumb to see the obvious hypocrisy slapping her in the face.

My guess is that they don’t want to offend their liberal customers by putting it in the store. Conservative customers would have to go out of their way to see it on their website if they wanted to buy it.

I actually bought “Going Rogue” at Borders for a Christmas gift. It took me awhile to find it on the ‘New Releases’ shelf because some ditch carp demoncrat had turned them all around.
