NEW YORK — It's official: Bristol Palin has a book deal.

The daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has signed with William Morrow to publish "Not Afraid of Life," to come out this summer. Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins, announced Tuesday that the memoir would provide "an inside look at her life."

Will you be following Piper into the restroom at her school to make sure she washes her hands? Are you in agreement with Andrew Sullivan on his "Trig" theory? Misogyny (pronounced /mɪˈsɒdʒɪni/) is the hatred of women. Misogyny comes from Greek misogunia (μισογυνία) from misos (μῖσος, hatred) and gynē (γυνή, woman). According to sociologist Allan G. Johnson, "misogyny is a cultural attitude of hatred for females because they are female." Johnson argues that: "[Misogyny] is a central part of sexist prejudice and ideology and, as such, is an important basis for the oppression of females in male-dominated societies. Misogyny is manifested in many different ways, from jokes to pornography to violence to the self-contempt women may be taught to feel for their own bodies." Michael Flood defines misogyny as the hatred of women and notes: "Though most common in men, misogyny also exists in and is practiced by women against other women or even themselves. Misogyny functions as an ideology or belief system that has accompanied patriarchal, or male-dominated societies for thousands of years and continues to place women in subordinate positions with limited access to power and decision making. [...] Aristotle contended that women exist as natural deformities or imperfect males [...] Ever since, women in Western cultures have internalised their role as societal scapegoats, influenced in the twenty-first century by multimedia objectification of women with its culturally sanctioned self-loathing and fixations on plastic surgery, anorexia and bulimia." Misogyny is not to be confused with the term misandry, the hatred of men or boys.

With any luck, she won’t need a ghost writer like her mom, anyway.

Oh heck, I can't remember how to spell it at age 60. How the hell can she have memories worthy of writing at her tender age?

Damn, let's all repeat the Big Media meme, that "the book is a memoir".

Over and over again.

Can’t really blame her. Now’s the time it will sell. I bought Sarah Palin’s two books as they came out, and found them very much worth reading, but I’ll pass on this one. Still, if she can make a bit of money off it by celebrity lovers, why not?

Better than Billy Beer.

Do you fault Ronald Reagan for having a left wing ballet dancer for a son?

I remember years ago when Nancy Reagan wrote her missive and finally had her say in "My Turn". Published in 1989, it was her opportunity to set the record straight on so many issues where she was dinged in MSM. That was in 1989... before MSM morphed into tabloid journalism in order to compete with the minute to minute reporting in social media.

Bristol Palin has chosen to tell her own story from "HER" perspective. Those who despise her will continue to do so... those who are in the middle may find it illuminating and those who have sought to protect her will continue to do likewise. Amy, Karena and Kara NEVER took on the heat from MSM that this young woman has had to deal with.

I strongly doubt your conservative cred Pissant, when you feel a need to attack this young woman and bring up Democrat daughters as your example. Who the heck's side are you on anyway?

the memoir would provide "an inside look at her life." I don't want even an outside look. Thinking about the inside look at that life makes me shiver.

When Bristol is 75 years old and is the husband of perhaps the most consequential president and conservative of the century, I might tune in.

How can a 20 year old have a memoir?

I have tremendous respect for Sarah and Todd, but I'm becoming weary of the constant "Palin Bombardment."

Did you read my post? Thickheaded. This young woman's life is ahead of her. The movement of information in media today is not what it was in Nancy Reagan's time. Should Bristol allow the media to define her? Live her life according to their parameters? If she were my child I would want her to get her message out. There is a very large youthful generation of which this young woman is a part, that will embrace her and understand the dirt-job that was thrown at her life.

I remember being quite surprised at Nancy's title... "My Turn". I loved it in fact. At least there was one conservative willing to call the MSM out on their bull.

You on the other hand seem to want to stifle Bristol and others like her who have endured liberal attacks... what side are you on?????

Amazon Bestsellers Rank on Duncan Hunter's book: #392,870.
So that's your definition of *fine*......oooookkkkk.

Really think Bristol's book will do better than #392,870........Just saying.

We all know that ROn Jr. wanted nothing more than to embarrass his Dad. Still does. But the icky part of this is that apparently she has the blessing of her mother on this. That’s ridiculous. I’m going to call it the Charlie Sheen syndrome. People throw money at you for doing very unimportant things ... why wouldn’t you believe you’re above it.

She’ll make a little money, and that’s fine. Maybe a first hand account of being in the crosshairs of the media would have some interest. Howver, I am going to make a blanket statement - I don’t like books from politicians or their families...or more specifically, I don’t like it when people cash in on fame which is the result of seeking public office. Its a free country; but, if the proceeds aren’t going to charity, I’m not buying a politicians book...or a relative’s.

It is so sophomoric watching you find anything even remotely negative about Palin...usually from the Left, and breathlessly post it in here.

I guess nothing exciting is happening with your boy Duncan...aye?

Ah come on now, a BOOK? NOTHING a “twenty something” has to say would be the least bit interesting to me. So ridiculous.

This is one of the reasons Palin is going to have a tough time, too much “baggage”, namely her kids.

I’m not a far of Bristol’s, but I suspect that many families have at least one black or gray sheep. I know you don’t like Sarah, and I understand, but please leave the kids out of it. IMO, they’re not all that relevant. If you want to criticize Sarah’s policies, then please do so in a civil way. On second thought, you already have. Then just leave the family out of it, please. By posting articles about Bristol to slam Sarah, you’re starting to look like a petty and desperate troll.

Comparing a young woman who has tried to make amends in hopes of helping other young women.....

..to the druggie, philandering narcissist Charlie Sheen who doesn't try to help anyone except himself is... beyond the pale....

..Every starlet, every single one... who finds herself pregnant out of wedlock.... is instantly glamorized and adored...(ie Natalie Portman, Kate Hudson, etc...they adorn the pages of glitzy magazines patting their 'baby bumps'...)

...Bristol Palin, who didn't choose her last name or parents, but DID choose to keep her baby rather than abort it...

..is vilified every day......no matter what she does, says, wears, takes part in.....

Hildy, do you really want to be part of this vilification?

The kid is the one putting her face out for all to see: pissant merely posted a nationally-published article.

This kid is cashing in on her mom's fame, and her own -- which resulted largely from the fact that she had an illegitimate child.
