Sarah Palin's new book: "America by Heart : Reflections on Family, Faith, and ..."

Test you Palinosity by filling in the blank. Meade couldn't do it. Not in 4 attempts.

Answer: Here.

I said "Freedom." I guess I am not sufficiently Palinositous.

MamaM said...

Freedom

Too many jims said...

I guessed "Fame".

Without giving away the answer, I would ask: "Which one?"

MamaM said...

Ok...Looking up Family, Faith and Freedom reveals a number of reasons why she may not have gone that route. But the word she choose instead seems likes a clunker.

More evidence of a tin ear?

Or the crazy fox thing?

Once again it looks like she'll be provoking reaction and response.

the Future?

Ann Althouse said...

Meade said "Freedom" first too. Then "Fidelity." I can't tell you what he said next.

Methadras said...

I'm with Freedom.

Methadras said...

Just look at the answer. Didn't guess that one. Seems out of sorts.

Palladian said...

Fucking!

Palladian said...

...Foucault?

Palladian said...

...Fried Chicken?

Palladian said...

...Fox News?

MamaM said...

If Meade sprinkled his 3rd choice with a few stars, it could be considered an almost winner!

Palladian said...

...Faggots?

Palladian said...

...Stuff?

garage mahal said...

Fools.

Palladian said...

I'm going with "Stuff".

c3 said...

Freedom sounds "alliterively" appropriate

c3 said...

______

I like Freedom better.

Palin seems to value the American citizen that sees his country as a great gift that is owed an intelligent and strong defense when it comes under the usual attacks from jealous European/Roman elites. She is just common, and proud of it. Her laedership will help, but will the dollar currency we exist by even be here at the rate Obama's every policy is choke holding it with debt?

Palladian said...

*looks at real title*

That's terrible! Although it would be really funny if a third of the book was a scholarly study of the vexillological history of America.

c3 said...

How about

the Frozen Tundra

(or does Green Bay have a copyright on that phrase?)

Palladian said...

One of my personal rules: Do not read any book with the word "Heart" in the title unless it's a cardiology textbook.

John Stodder said...

Fellatio?

Flava?

Frankfurters?

Fellas?

Fauns?

Fizzies?

-------

Okay, the serious answer... Friendship?

Chip Ahoy said...

My guess was "patriotism" because those are the three things men always answer as the things in order of importance to their lives. I didn't think of alliteration always so attractive for book titles. FAIL!

Incidentally, my father really did live that axiom. Family most important ahead of God and nation wasn't just a glib arrangement of values. My brothers and sisters really tested him on that too, not me, of course, I was a precious problem-free dream-child throughout. SHUT UP I was.

At any rate, there's another book I won't be reading. I bet it doesn't even pop out.

campy said...

Shoulda titled it The Audacity of Faith.

Matt said...

FREEDOM FRIES.

Palladian said...

"Shoulda titled it The Audacity of Faith."

Bodacity of Faith

rhhardin said...

Flutists.

john said...

"Levi"

(Oh BTW, that's flautist.)

Shannon said...

I said "Football."

I was wrong.

I liked mine better than the correct one, though.

john said...

Or floutist.

Fries?

john said...

Flammistas.

There's a new Spanish desert place opening up. They are hiring.

Michael Hasenstab said...

Maltodextrose.

tim maguire said...

I'm going to defend flag. It had to be in some sense an "F" word for "America." Freedom doesn't quite get the job done, Flag does.

Just so you know, I'm not all pro-flag because I guessed it, I didn't guess it. It's only in retrospect that that seems the right word.

john said...

"I can see November from my house."

hee hee.

Trooper York said...

Shemp.

They always forget about Shemp.

ricpic said...

Palladian said: Fried Chicken.

A much better ending than the one Palin or her editor chose. Deflates the boilerplate title, makes it human.

David said...

4 tries? Easy.

Guns.
Me.
My totally hot hubby.
Fear.

Diane Wilson said...

Ferengi.

Forestry.

Fluoridation.

Flatulence.

I like where she could go with the subject matter, but the title is just frakking awful.

David said...

Learn to swallow, Vikki.

And stop serving up verbal softballs.

"Family, Faith & Insect Repellent" apparently would work too. After all, she's from Alaska.

America By Heart: Reflections On Family, Faith and Fucking Freezing Our Asses Off Up Here

Beth said...

I peeked. And that's just stupid.

Beth said...

Which flag? It should be Flags or the Flag.

Über said...

I read over it too fast and didn't pick up on the alliteration device... so I said "Patriotism."

At least I get points for being close by getting the theme right, right?

Über said...

Given the stink about kids wearing the flag and a kid drawing the flag, I think she's got her finger on the pulse of something rather than making a misstep like you suggest.

Fey.

You all forgot about Fey. The word has some creepy etymology that hints nicely at palinsanity.
There's also Fey as in the namesake who mocks Palin but who symbolizes the larger world of Palin-haterz who practice the palindrome harass sarah.

EDH said...

Fellatio?!!!

edutcher said...

Amazing that the National Socialists are still so afraid of a woman they claim to hold in such contempt.

Paul Zrimsek said...

If she's got it by heart, why does she need to write notes on her hand?

Pogo said...

Fudd.

Elmer.

Has anybody seen that mad Awaskan watewy?

Beth said...

Shhh. I'm hunting wabbits.

Palladian said...

"Shhh. I'm hunting wabbits."

and wolves, fwom a hewicopter!

MamaM said...

@Uber I didn't realize until I talked to my son that "crazy like a fox" isn't a current or common phrase.

Crazy like a fox: seemingly foolish but in fact very shrewd and cunning.

Tin ear: an insensitivity to subtlety or appropriateness in verbal expression

Jeremy said...

"Balls in my mouth?"

Jeremy said...

"...being a loser?"

*A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds that just 41% say they would vote for the former Alaska governor if she ran for president in 2012. Forty-eight percent (48%) say they would not vote for Palin, and 11% more are undecided.

john said...

Hi Jeremy,

Just spread out a little fox scent and you show up.

Interesting percentages. If they're correct, it looks like it would be a neck-and-neck race with Obama.

And she's not even running (compared with Obama who hasn't stopped).

Alex said...

Ah Jeremy has showed up and blown his load already. What a mess.

Regarding the book title - meh.

Über said...

@MamaM ...

I'm familiar with both expressions... But I fumbled on reading comprehension with the short hand "crazy fox"...

Sorry about that. :)

Fen said...

Jeremy: Teabaggers, can I suck on your balls?

No sicko. You cant suck their balls. So quit asking.

Jeremy said...

Ohhhhh, Fenny...you pick the wrong name for your group of moron wing nuts and just can't get away from it.

Open wide, little man...

TheGiantPeach said...

If it were ".... Ferris Wheels," I might consider reading it.

Right....because there's absolutely no relevant historical context to the name "tea party" beyond the vulgar pejorative leftists use to smear us with.

paul a'barge said...

Meade's mind was elsewhere ... hey, it's Spring at Meadehouse.

paul a'barge said...

Finger food

Paco Wové said...

"Which flag?"

That you even have to ask...

MadisonMan said...

Fairbanks.

knox said...

Flag?

Flag???

That's just weird and awkward.

Big Mike said...

I didn't guess it either. But at least Sarah Palin is a welcome diversion from all Kagan all the time.

Mitch H. said...

"Firearms".

veni vidi vici said...

She is laughing at everyone. Right, left and center.

Especially the critics and haters, who fuel her success by forcing nominally conservative folks into sympathy with her.

Me, I just don't care enough about what she's selling, which appears to be more of that bromidic, homespun with a vamped-up accent "Americana" horseshit that successful center-right politicians like to bathe in, and that Democrats only pull out during election season to burnish their "God? We love him and the flag too!" credentials (while making themselves look foolish for doing so).

Heckuva polity, America!


wv: "epurge" -- the virtual corrollary to ebinging.

c3 said...

two comments:
1) One obvious answer given her new style of political commentary would have been "Facebook"
2) Less than 100 comments for a Palin post. Flavor of the month?

Em said...

Guessed "foritude"

Flag? Eh.

Em said...

that would be "fortitude"

Sorry - trying to type quietly, sleeping hubs.
