Latest Palin tell-all: More of the same ugly

Frank Bailey was Sarah Palin's aide and he was her heavy. He played a role in "Troopergate," for example, working behind the scenes to get Palin's ex-brother-in-law, state trooper Mike Wooten, fired after Wooten divorced Palin's sister. Now Bailey is riddled with regret. He says Palin was not the political breath of fresh air he thought she was. She's self-concerned and ambitious and a prima donna. She wrote glowing letters to the editor about herself, has a fake tan, and can't be bothered to stick to a schedule. Bailey doesn't like Palin. His book, "Blind Allegiance," appears to add flesh to the Palin persona, but there doesn't seem to be much new here. Palin haters won't be surprised by any of it. Palin lovers won't care. But the U.K. Daily Mail loves it.
