Sarah Palin Reaches America.

Going Rogue is going universal.

Publisher HarperCollins said Friday that Sarah Palin's memoir sold 300,000 copies its first day....

"Going Rogue" was released this week and its print run already has been increased from 1.5 million copies to 2.5 million, HarperCollins announced Friday.

From the anals of the HuffPo we find that the Army was afraid that if Palin were to sign books in front of media cameras the voice of the military, i.e. soldiers in general, would possibly upset the brass' working relationship with the Commander in Chief, i.e. Obama: Cheers for Palin, even a quiet turn-out to buy her book, contrasted to the dead silence when Obama gives a "Hope n Change" rodomontade. And maybe we'll see when Sarah Palin shows up on television to sign her book how things really stand as men and women of our military show up and express themselves publicly.

RALEIGH, N.C. — The U.S. Army said Friday it would open Sarah Palin's appearance on Fort Bragg to media, a reversal from earlier in the week when the military wanted the event closed out of fears it would prompt political grandstanding against President Barack Obama.

Fort Bragg spokesman Tom McCollum [said:]

The Army now plans to allow any interested media to cover Palin's appearance, including allowing interviews with people who attend the event and rotating journalists into the building where Palin will be signing books.

McCollum said Thursday officials planned to allow the general public on base but prevent media from attending so the Palin book signing would not become a political platform to express opinions "directed against the commander in chief."
