What We're Up Against

It's officially a cult: The Washington Post reports that an entire single-issue magazine about Sarah Palin is being circulated around the country for $8.99. From the Atlantic's Politics blog (my italics):

"Hundreds of thousands" of copies are circulating, according to the publisher, and for $8.99 you can get a glossy tabloid with previously unpublished childhood photos of Palin, plus quotes from the former governor, that purports to give Palin's "untold story...in her own words!" According to the publisher, the project was undertaken without Palin's knowledge.
That's how you know it's a cult -- when the project is undertaken without the knowledge of the subject. When enough demand exists to put this together without any input from Palin.

And the full truth about her still hasn't been revealed. Oh, but when that tree falls, I want to be in those woods so I can hear it.
