Snort:

The daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has signed with William Morrow to publish "Not Afraid of Life," to come out this summer. Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins, announced Tuesday that the memoir would provide "an inside look at her life."

...

Plainspoken and disarmingly down to earth, Bristol offers new insight and understanding of who she is and what she values most.

Really, Bristol? You need a whole book to do that? I'm pretty sure I can sum it up in a paragraph:

She got knocked up in high school and now spends her days getting paid to pretend to be a virgin while performing "scandalous" dances on national TV "out here in [her] underwear", who suffers from the apparently hereditary delusion that she might have to run for political office even though she can't be bothered to vote because the nation desperately needs her unique insight and experience as a knocked-up teen turned reality TV star turned Googler economics policy adviser to her mother.

See? No need to waste time writing hiring a ghostwriter to share what few details of your life haven't already been sold to celebrity magazines when you obviously have more important things to do, like ganging up on your mother's critics on Facebook with your spelling-challenged, potty-mouthed, gay-bashing kid sister.

On the other hand, maybe you should keep cashing in while you still can, 'cause I'm pretty sure I can see your 16th minute from my house.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
