How long did you wait in line?

Are you sure that's the author's signature?
cuz it looks like the author turned her youngest one loose with a magic marker

So what's the plan - proudly display it on the coffeetable...or stuff it in a desk drawer?

I'm going hunting/camping next week. I usually bring old newspaper to get the fire going. Can I pick up the book?

Very nice!

Cool gift.

The autograph is the only real surprise. (Well, that and the fact that you got a book book rather than the audio book.) After all, as of yesterday Going Rogue is still #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List.

The best ever golf story..........................
A man was at the country club for his weekly round of golf.
He began his round with an eagle on the first hole and a birdie on the second.

On the third hole he had just scored his first ever hole-in-one ever when his cell phone rang. It was a doctor notifying him that his wife had just been in a terrible accident and was in critical
condition and in the ICU.

The man told the doctor to inform his wife where he was and that he'd be there as soon as possible. As he hung up, he realized he would be leaving what was shaping up to be his best ever round of golf.

He decided to get in a couple of more holes before heading to the hospital. He ended up playing all eighteen, finishing his round shooting a personal best 61, shattering the club record by five strokes and beating his previous best game by more than 10. He was jubilant!

Then he remembered his wife. Feeling guilty he dashed to the hospital. He saw the doctor in the corridor and asked about his wife's condition.

The doctor glared at him and shouted, "You went ahead and finished your round of golf didn't you!" "I hope you're proud of yourself!"

"While you were out for the past four hours enjoying yourself at the country club, your wife has been languishing in the ICU!

But it's just as well you went ahead and finished that round because it will more than likely be your last!" For the rest of her life she will require round the clock care and you will be her care giver! She will need IV's; you will have to change her colostomy bag every three hours; she will have to be spoon fed three times a day; and then there's also the hygiene care."

The man was feeling so guilty he broke down and sobbed.

The doctor snickered and said, "I'm just messing with you. She's dead. What'd you shoot?"

Did she use that same pen to mark out her McCain visor?

The very fact that you were allowed to TOUCH that book and open it, is BLASPHEMY! I hope Sarah takes a shower tonight, 'cause I feel dirty for her.

My brother actually spent money on purchasing this book. When I gasped in horror, he said he wore dark sunglasses, put his collar up, and hid his face. He has unbounded the book, is scanning it, and has a program that can run all types of references like how many times certain words or phrases are used - like "maverick". He said just reading what little he has while scanning it - sounds like she talked in a microphone and someone typed what she said with very little editing showing how stupid she actually is.

That's almost as cool as giving a liberal weenie a 12 guage shotgun for home protection.

You spent time typing that?

Go make your kid cut his hair.

If I had that book in my possession, it would remind me of how I felt when I had that baseball which was autographed by George W. Bush (when he was Governor).......creepy, so I gave it away. In the case of this book, I, like 1:23PM, would burn it.

3:37, Your brother needs to get a life or a job.

337 - Your brother spent >$20.00 to purchase Sarah Palin's memoir, is going through the labor of unbinding and scanning each page of her book, running a "program" to analyze the text, interpreting the analysis and also reading the book, just to prove he doesn't like Sarah Palin?

The question that leaps to mind is, Who's the stupid one?

Could have been worse...could have been one of those awful Obama (look at how neat I am) autobiographies he wrote having done nothing noteworthy in his entire life.

I think it'd have more sales if she'd named it "Going Commando".

My employees pooled their money and bought me front row tics to Van Morrison at Bass Hall next month.

It's probably because you're a sanctimonious prick who likes to give derogative comments to anyone's opinion that differs from your own.
