If for some reason you feel compelled to own Sarah Palin’s new book “Going Rogue”, might we suggest you grab it from these guys?

San Francisco’s Green Apple Books has decided that the best way to justify selling Palin’s book is to have it benefit some cause. To that end, they’ve decided to give 100% of the proceeds from sales of “Going Rogue” to the Alaska Wildlife Federation. From their blog,

“With all due to respect to the Republicans who were as overjoyed as I was (for different reasons, of course) by Sarah Palin’s nomination to the McCain ticket last year, Green Apple is donating 100% of the profits from sales of Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue: An American Life to the Alaska Wildlife Alliance.”

Founded in 1978, the AWA is the only group in Alaska solely dedicated to the protection of Alaska’s wildlife. That means wolves, bears, and other animals that were consistently under threat under Palin’s tenure as Governor of Alaska. We can’t think of a better way to offset this book — and commend Green Apple for not just going rogue, but being “mavericks.”

    People might also like to buy the similarly named book “Going Rouge”

    Despite the snarky title it is a collection of about two dozen individually authored,serious, articles about who Sarah Palin really is.

    “Going Rouge” is edited by two senior editors from the magazine The Nation.
    It is a left leaning magazine, but the quality of writing is stellar.

      I hate extremists, so no to your liberal garbage book and no Sarah’s Republican garbage book.

    How many 9 dollar books do you think they will sell?

    Fox News is showing fake footage of Palin VP crowds from a year ago and saying THEY ARE PEOPLE IN LINE TO BUY THE BOOK NOW!!!!!! Hilarious!

    Sarah Palin/Fabio 2012!

  • don miguelo

    I want the one where the mama wolf plays dead to the helicopter, then kills the “hunters” when they get too close, commandeers the helicopter and flies it into the ex-governer’s face for revenge.

    –And then writes a book about that! NOW THAT I would buy!

  • VeggieTart

    I can’t imagine why they’re selling the book at all, but if it benefits the wolves, more power to ‘em.
