The war on Sarah Palin's Christmas book (+video)(Read article summary)
News that Sarah Palin is writing a book about Christmas has led to an explosion of comment in social-media spaces. Here are the most likely ramifications of this Palin development.
Yes, Sarah Palin is writing a book about Christmas. The former Alaska governor has inked a deal with HarperCollins to produce “A Happy Holiday IS a Merry Christmas,” scheduled for November release. The semi-memoir will include details of Palin Christmases past while criticizing the “over-commercialism” and “homogenization” of Christmas, according to a publisher news release.
“This will be a fun, festive, thought provoking book, which will encourage all to see what is possible when we unite in defense of our faith and ignore the politically correct Scrooges who would rather take Christ out of Christmas,” Ms. Palin said in a statement released by her publishers.
As you might imagine, this development has led to an explosion of comment in America’s social-media spaces. Given the unrestrained nature of electronic communication, much of this discussion has been less than profound. It ranges from Sarah supporters chanting “2016! 2016!” to opponents expressing gratitude that something will soon fill empty remainder bins at the remaining brick-and-mortar Barnes & Noble stores.
Calm down, everybody. Neither nirvana nor the apocalypse has arrived. Let’s run through the most likely ramifications of this fizzy development.
