'101 Things You - and John McCain - Didn't Know About Sarah Palin'

By Gregory Bergman

BOSTON, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Sarah Palin is living proof that politics does indeed make strange bedfellows. In "101 Things You -- and John McCain -- Didn't Know" about Sarah Palin (Adams Media/October 1, 2008) by comedian Greg Bergman, readers learn the (alleged) truth about the (reputed) Republican darling from Alaska who has taken the nation by (ice) storm. From hunter, to hockey mom, to live action figure, this book confirms America's latest instant-celebrity is indeed stranger -- and scarier -- than ever imagined.

With the polls projecting a statistical dead-heat and the election nearly one month away, left-leaning voters are feeling the pressure -- and desperate for a laugh. For the 18 million-strong Sisterhood of the Traveling Pantsuits to the 72 million registered Democrats praying for a Palin pratfall, "101 Things You -- and John McCain -- Didn't Know about Sarah Palin" proves politics can be much funnier than fiction. For instance:

-- When Sarah Palin was a little girl, her father Charlie reportedly often took her moose hunting before school. We know that eating together as a family is important, but hunting your meal down as a family? Now that's true togetherness ...

-- Palin attended a Pentecostal church until 2002. Interestingly, she's characteristically silent on the subject of her speaking in tongues.

-- Palin has sued the federal government for putting polar bears on the endangered species list. Apparently they are not as cute and cuddly up close as they are in cartoons.

-- In 2007, Sarah Palin offered $150 to every hunter who hacked off the left foreleg of a wolf shot from a plane. Talk about wolves being thrown, uh ... to the wolves.

A hilarious and irreverent look at America's favorite "Caribou Barbie," this is the only humor book on Palin currently available.

Author and comedian Gregory Bergman is the author of "WTF?," "BizzWords," "Isms," and "The Little Book of Bathroom Philosophy." His work has been featured in the "Wall Street Journal" and on NPR. Bergman is based in Los Angeles.
