Where in the World Is Sarah Palin?

images.jpegWhere in the world is Sarah Palin? The short answer is easy: Writing her memoir. Long answer: Emailing her family members with sports trivia questions from an undisclosed location for the last month while working on her memoir.

NPR linked to an interview with Palin’s father, Chuck Heath, that gave crucial intelligence about the state of Palin’s memoir: “Heath said he gets e-mails when she’s looking for trivial details of her past, like how many points she scored in a high school basketball game or the year the family attended the Boston Marathon. ‘Sarah’s been out of town for almost a month now,’ Heath told The (Idaho) Spokesman-Review. ‘I don’t know exactly where she is, but she’s writing her book.’”

Earlier in the summer, Politico reporter Michael Calderone speculated in a mediabistro.com interview that Palin’s unexpected retirement as governor of Alaska would help her focus on writing her book. (Via Publishers Weekly)
