NRO’s Robert Costa has a roundup of media reactions to Going Rogue. Most amusing: Obama-supporting Marc Ambinder maintains that Palin has “to show humility” in order to be relevant.

Judging from some of the comments, one would have to go back to the Bible to find a book about which so many have written so much without ever having read it.

AP tries pre-emptive assault, fails

Power Line (no fans of Palin) surprisingly scorches Associated Pravda for a fact-light “fact check.” An excerpt:

This is frankly pathetic. Palin says she didn’t “often” stay at high-end hotels, and the AP counters by saying she did, once. Yes, that’s why she said “not often” rather than “never.”

Really, when you lose the Pawlenty-koolaid-drinking elitists at Power Line so easily…

Mark Steyn also contributes his usual sterling observations:

That looks like AP paid 1.8333333 fact-checkers to agree with Mrs Palin: She says she didn’t “often” go for “high-end” hotels; they say she “usually opted for less-pricey hotels”. That’s gonna make one must-see edition of “Point/Counterpoint”.
