More Astonishment From Palin's Uterine Stalker

When last heard from, Andrew Sullivan was trying to finagle out his marijuana bust on Cape Cod. That provided enough amusement. Now the deranged former "conservative" with the very unhealthy obsession over Sarah Palin is shocked -- shocked! -- Mrs. Palin managed to churn out a 400-page book in a scant four months. I think his problem is it will be a huge bestseller, far outpacing anything he could ever dream of.
Someone in her position with a decent sense of perspective and self-knowledge might have said no to John McCain in August of 2008. Or taken the pick as an opportunity to get boned up on policy.
Boned up? Seems a rather odd choice of words for Sullivan.
But why the rush? It couldn't be that she's trying to beat any other account of her bizarre career and surreal private life, could it?
Let me guess. Is Sullivan planning a book compilation chronicling the past year's bizarre, incoherent ramblings about Trig Palin? You know, the insane, pathological obsession that has reduced him to a punchline?

Who knows? Yet what seems to horrify Mr. Raw Muscle Glutes is Palin's ghostwriter is -- horror of horrors! -- a Christian! Imagine that, a Christian author. Rather nefarious, don't you think?.
Just as Palin was relatively unknown when McCain tapped her as his running mate, Vincent hardly is a household name.

For the past 10 years, she has been working for Christian-based World Magazine, from which she took leave to work full time with Palin.

Like so many before her, Vincent settled in San Diego after a Navy career brought her here. From 1986 to 1989, she was stationed at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station as an air traffic controller and later at North Island Naval Air Station before retiring in 1991. Vincent's husband, Danny, who also was in the Navy, still works in air traffic control at North Island.

When Vincent, 47, was chosen as ghostwriter, the liberal online Huffington Post focused on an earlier book of hers that was critical of the Democratic Party. Vincent is clearly uncomfortable with political pigeonholing and points to her books involving Christian pop singer Michael English, former terrorist Kamal Saleem and Delta Force leader Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin.

The best-known of her collaborations, however, is about a millionaire art dealer whose life changed after he befriended a homeless drifter. “Same Kind of Different as Me” has sold more than 560,000 copies. It has spent 75 weeks on The New York Times best-seller list, raised millions of dollars for homeless shelters and grabbed Hollywood's attention.

Movie rights were picked up by Mark Clayman, executive producer of “The Pursuit of Happyness.” He is working with Ralph Winter (of “X-Men” fame).
Whatever the case, these upcoming 400 page probably give new meaning to Sullivan's pathetic existence. Look at all the fresh material there will be for him to obsess over.

Maybe when he's done with that he can check up on who the ghostwriter for Barack Obama's books were.
