America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag Releases Today

Today’s the day Sarah Palin’s second book is released. Click on the book title at left to order a Signed Edition at amazon.com. I ordered for myself and gifts, but cheapskate me opted for free shipping, so most people will probably have the book read by the time I get mine!

Regarding that last “campaign or no campaign,” full disclosure on Kathryn Lopez is that, despite being very prolife, she is somehow still a Mitt Romney gal. To that end, she also mentions Palin’s words about Romney in the book.
