Sarah Palin magazine, with never-before-seen baby photos, on sale for $9
Desperate for a fresh fix of Sarah Palin, two-and-a-half months after "Going Rogue"? Lucky for you, a new 100-page glossy mag devoted to the former VP nominee is now available on newsstands, featuring dozens of rarely seen childhood and family photos.
Among them: a cute and chubby young Sarah, looking exactly like daughter Piper; the youngster posing with her siblings and a freshly killed bear; another posing with moose antlers still attached to fragments of bloody skull.
A possible problem for the ex-gov, who has sought to control her image since leaving office: The publisher did it without her knowledge. Unclear how they got the pics.
"The genesis of it was really simple," said Steve LeGrice of Imagine That Publishing, which collaborated with IMG marketing firm. "There was clearly this huge enthusiasm for Sarah Palin and at the same time all the people in the media world were sitting around scratching their heads" about how to cash in. LeGrice, who also published fanzines about "New Moon" and Michael Jackson, told our colleague Garance Franke-Ruta that they decided to "put out a magazine all in her own words ..... without any opinion or anything added in." A rep for Palin declined comment.
