Sarah Palin's second book will be entitled "America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag." It will be released on November 23rd.

That's according to the Associated Press, which cites an announcement from publisher HarperCollins.

The former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential candidate's first book, "Going Rogue," became a monster bestseller, moving more than two million copies.

Her latest effort is reportedly focused on American values like "family, faith, and patriotism."

The AP reports that, according to the HarperCollins statement, the book will include "selections from classic and contemporary readings" that have moved the controvertial Republican. The nation's founding documents will be included, the publisher said, as well as "great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies."

Also included will be "portraits" of people Palin admires, including some that she met while on her "Going Rogue" book tour. On that tour, the Fox News contributor made stops largely in the sorts of rural conservative areas she called "real America" during the 2008 campaign.

The AP reports that the book will have an initial printing of 1 million copies and retail for $25.99, and that Palin will again work with a collaborator.

Palin plans to tour in support of the book, which is being released almost a year-to-the-day after "Going Rogue."

It just too funny to see the backwood, ill informed, ignorant hate mongers attacking her.
The best part is when her oppugners go rabid.

It is a good thing she has a collaborator, that way one person on the team will have the ability to read and write.

mention her name and all the clueless haters come out of the woodwork to make 'jokes' about how dumb she supposedly is and how they can see russia, etc.. it's all awfully tired and ill-informed. agree with her or not, the woman is anything but dumb. try actually listening to her or reading some of her extensive writings and leave the 'jokes' to SNL. palin derangement syndrome only makes YOU look like the ranting dummy.

@El Polacko

Not quite.
Journalism ?degree? recipient saying ?exspecially.??

You lot love to talk of 'facts' Well, a couple of years of book sales,talk of 'reload' and adoption by the intentionally ignorant(as in pig $tup%d), and we?ll have this decade?s ?nucular.?

If the rest of the country have to learn effective communication and writing, even those that weren't 'given passports after college by their parents to glob trotting', why shouldn't she?

Presumeably you speak of Cameron. Anglophiles always provide the best giggles. Britain is not that image your mind paints you. No one has tea and crumpets. There are numerous accents and yes...Cameron has got RP speech as a function of his background but, he is more grounded than Brown.

He modernised a conservative party [Maggie's party] into one that has finally regained control albeit shared.

Labour morphed from what it was into a pseudo lapdog for G
Dub. Brown is caustic and their [Labour's] loss was a reflection of brits pressing the reset button.I think your evaluation is very confused.

There are NO redeeming qualities of Palin. One glimpses moments of honesty, as it were, through a mist of misunderstanding but she is a d&mn liar. That's what gets people. People hate to be lied to. It is to suggest they aren't worthy of devoting the time to make sure they are receiving the truth.

To then marinate the whole manure in folksy one-liners like, 'betcha', abandon the people you campaigned and got elected to serve mid=stream, to stoke the hate she does, parade your special needs child for sympathy, have your sleezy husband act shadow government whilst you are governor and yet he wanted to cede Alaska from the U.S, there isn't enough time in this world to despise her as one should.

Americans DO NOT like those that are in it for free ride. Methinks this... has had a free ride for far too long with the pat approval of those that defend her mindlessly.

You mean the media who asked her questions that you ask any candidate?

Questions that she couldn't answer because she's a clueless moron?

That media?

I bet Sarah's new book makes you angrier than Obama giving $8.4 billion to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, in addition to the billions they already got. And I bet you don't think any legal action should be taken against Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, and Maxine Waters. I bet you think they should keep the money that they got from Fannie and Freddie. Chris is getting out before they come after him. But damage is already done. They are responsible for housing market crash. Why aren't you whining about that? Because Obama got money from them too and why rock the boat? Seems to me they all should pay the money back.

Bush gave that money to Fannie and Freddie.

Speaking of Bush, how many times did you vote for him?
