Jan Brewer's Writing a Book -- and a Sarah-Palin-Sympathizing Ghost Writer's Helping Her Do it

Jan Brewer's writing a book -- with a Sarah Palin sympathizer.
By now, you've probably heard that Governor Jan Brewer is having someone write writing her memoirs to be released by Harper Collins this fall. What you probably haven't heard is that she's having someone who did "important work" on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's book help out.

The book is titled "Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America's Border" (a little self-serving, we know, which is why New Times came up with its own title for Jan's book, as well as a complete table of contents, which you can see here), and she's been paired with conservative political writer Jessica Gavora, who almost certainly will do the majority of the heavy lifting.

Gavora and Palin go way back. On her Facebook page, Gavora boasts that "she grew up in Fairbanks where she played high school basketball against future Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin."

She even helped Palin pen her own memoirs, America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag.

In addition to her work on Palin's memoirs, Gavora's written her own book,Tilting the Playing Field: Schools, Sports, Sex and Title IX,' and is a former chief speechwriter for John Ashcroft, Attorney General under George W. Bush.

Brewer's book is pimped by the publisher as the tale of "America's toughest governor" in a state and country "under siege'' by a "dysfunctional'' federal government that has failed to protect its citizens and "a national political movement that cynically depends on uncontrolled illegal immigration to realize its vision of a transformed America.''

We'll definitely be coughing up the $26.99 to get our hands on a copy -- our grill's not gonna light itself.

So that's why Gov. Brewer recently vacationed in Alaska with the Palin's - nothing like toasting the same ghostwriter AND celebrating ignorance as a tool for *we has done did published some literarily werks*

Well, it appears that Governor Jan Brewer has learned quite well from the Flaccid Fool of MCSO.

She calls herself "America's Toughest Governor." The MCSO shurf calls himself "America's Toughest Sheriff."

She's co-authoring a book. As has the Senile Spinster. Remember "Joe's Law?"

I wonder if her book will be selling on eBay for 1 penny, as the Ancient One's book was recently.

I bet Jan won't even be reading her own book. Just like her hero the MCSO shurf.

I'm buyin' it. I'm really looking forward to reading about the REAL stories of the headless desert-dwelling zombies. The story she couldn't tell IRL.

Its funny how libs never refer to those who help them write books, that don't sell,as ghostwriters, but conservatives, like Sarah Palin, who has sold close to 4 million with her combined books, always have their helpers described as ghostwriters.

They are ghostwriters, not consultants.. why else would Sarah Palin come out saying she disliked something her ghostwriter put in the book. Lynn Vincent, look her up.. then ask yourself, geez, why would she'd be considered a co-author..No no no.. I digress; I believe Sarah could write a book while touring the country and throw it out there all in under 8 months. Very talented troglodyte that one.As for Brewer, well; we all know she's got brains.Get a bit more rational sodakhic, we all know most people who are not in the field of writing generally have a ghostwriter working on their projects/memoirs. However most "libs"(?) don't go on nationwide tours signing a body of work that doesn't entirely belong to them.

Instead of your grill, can I buy it used. I want to laugh, but i don't want to enrich our Gov for her work of fiction. But she does know where the border is now.

Before using the book as kindling for an evening fire, I might want to know how many "has did"s are in it. Oh gee, I guess the professional propaganda writer will take those out. Oh well, no need to buy the kindling then.

I figured she wouldn't write well enough to pen a short article, let alone a book.

Save your money. No one will be buying a stupid book about the country's mostUneducated governor. Might sell a few copies to the TP faithful and that's it.

When you used the term "TP" I assumed you were referring to her book being bathroom reading material. Either way I agree.

The part about needing to read might prove problematic for the TP'ers......but hey, they can always pick up an audio book...do they do them on 8 track?
