Sarah Palin’s writing skills
By Ted Belman
For those of you who still believe that Sarah Palin is intellectually challenged or worse, an idiot or bimbo, I recommend that you read her book review, published by Breitbart, which begins:
I don’t normally read “true crime” books, and I’ve certainly never written a review of one, but Errol Morris’ new book, “A Wilderness of Error,” isn’t typical of the genre. It’s much more interesting and I think important. It’s a book about the failings of a legal system administered by very fallible human beings, and it’s a book about how we buy into false media narratives that tidy up uncomfortably complex stories and give us permission to call off any further search for truth – and, yes, Morris argues with refreshing clarity that objective truth is real and worthy of being sought after despite the pretentious nonsense preached in faculty lounges about all truth being relative. In fact, he argues passionately that the search for truth is what journalism and justice is all about.
The book she reviews takes to task her arch nemesis Joe McGinniss. You know the creep who rented the house next to hers for the summer so that he could watch all of her family’s comings and goings.
The reason I am drawing your attention to it was that I was startled how good her writing skills are and wanted to share them with you. She didn’t take journalism for nothing.
Of course these skills are apparent in all her Facebook posts but I felt more apparent in this review.
For those of you who weren’t aware of it, Sarah Palin has always been a book worm. She was known for reading the newspaper from cover to cover and for always having a book in hand that she was currently reading.
