Palin Takes Shots at Obamas in New Book

Some excerpts have leaked from her new book, which is set to release on Tuesday.

She's done it again. In her first book, Going Rogue, Palin talked about her advisers on the McCain campaign. But this time, in her new book, America by Heart, she's taken her criticism all the way to the White House.

 

"The second reason the charge of racism is leveled at patriotic Americans so often is that the people making the charge actually believe it. They think America -- at least America as it currently exists -- is a fundamentally unjust and unequal country. Barack Obama seems to believe this, too. Certainly his wife expressed this view when she said during the 2008 campaign that she had never felt proud of her country until her husband started winning elections. In retrospect, I guess this shouldn't surprise us, since both of them spent almost two decades in the pews of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright's church listening to his rants against America and white people."

 

Hmm, are we still on this quote from Mrs. Obama? About being patriotic? If Palin expects to run in 2012, she's going to have to come up with better talking points than these.
