FACT CHECK: On bailouts, reformer credentials and more, Palin's bio goes rogue on some facts

 The lack of facts in Palin’s new book should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed her career. She’s tried to project a public image of this housewife turned political crusader, but has come up short on the “believe-ability” scale everytime. Reality has trumped her too many times for anyone – short of rabid gun-carrying fans – to take her seriously. Here’s what the Chicago Tribune had to say about her new book:

Sarah Palin's new book reprises familiar claims from the 2008 presidential campaign that haven't become any truer over time.
Ignoring substantial parts of her record if not the facts, she depicts herself as a frugal traveler on the taxpayer's dime, a reformer without ties to powerful interests and a politician roguishly indifferent to high ambition.
Palin goes adrift, at times, on more contemporary issues, too.
She criticizes
President Barack Obama for pushing through a bailout package that actually was achieved by his Republican predecessor George W. Busha package she seemed to support at the time.

The Associated Press in advance of its release Tuesday:”

What do you mean "you guys?"

What's scary about her is despite the lies she puts out she has a small (extremist)following - who like their idol - aren't concerned with the truth.
