That's from Witness. His character's name was John Book.

I love the "He's my cousin. From Ohio" (I'm pretty sure that's not the exact line, but it's kinda close) line when he punched the tourist.

I just wish I could find a bf/husband named Todd so I could say "thanks to God and Todd"-but she already said it first

She's saying the Newsweek cover is sexist-and from the point of view that I don't believe a posed picture like that has been used for a male politician in the US in that context before (maybe it has and I just don't recall)..and she posed for that for Runner's World and they used it for Newsweek, I have to agree with her. I think it was most likely more a conscious decision to try to sell magazines more than one to try to demean her in some way. It does seem like an unfair double standard.

And no full frontal for Levi either-so until he can do that I don't see him having the porn career that Gov Palin thinks he wants to have.

Fans line up to meet Palin on book tour's first stop

The Associated Press
updated 4:00 p.m. ET, Wed., Nov . 18, 2009

GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan - Hundreds of Sarah Palin fans lined up Wednesday at a Michigan book store to get the chance to meet the former Alaska governor as she kicked off a national tour for her book "Going Rogue."

Some supporters camped out overnight to be among the first to get wristbands from the Barnes and Noble bookstore at Woodland Mall in Grand Rapids. Those with the orange bands will get the opportunity to have the former 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate sign their copies of the book at the three-hour signing event Wednesday evening.

The memoir was released Tuesday but has topped best-seller lists for weeks.

"Everyone here has been excited and patient," Barnes and Noble spokeswoman Maddie Hjulstrom said of the waiting crowd.

Calvin College students Megan Patzky and Sarah Cranmer were among those waiting overnight to get wrist bands. The two 20-year-olds skipped their Wednesday classes at the private college located less than a mile from the book store .

Patzky bought a copy last night for her father, a Palin supporter, and plans to give it to him as a Christmas present.

After standing in the cold all night, the pair was happy to get into the Woodland Mall around 6:15 a.m.

"We were hoping that someone would start selling coffee, but nobody did," Patzky joked.

Todd Shaffer, of East Lansing, said some of those in line were Palin supporters and other were there to get books signed to give as gifts.

A Transportation Security Administration worker at Lansing's Capital Region International Airport, the 38-year-old arrived early Wednesday at the bookstore and described himself as a conservative Republican who voted for Palin and presidential candidate John McCain last year.

Shaffer said he would vote for Palin if she ran for president in 2012.

"As a woman in politics, she's a pioneer in the Republican Party and she's opened a lot of doors up for a lot of women to think about politics" as a career, he said. "I thought she added a lot to the ticket."

like i said earlier, she firms up the base but does nothing for anyone else. the gop would be beyond retarded to let her get that far, and i'm just speaking strategically. i guess it's happened once though, it can always happen again

i think she has a point here.

certainly her looks have a lot to do with why she's so loved among a small part of the GOP base, and while she has wielded those looks to her advantage and showcased them as part of her appeal, i don't think men would be treated the same. (still, we don't have a male politician on her level -- the only one that comes to mind is JFK).

i also didn't think it was fair for Barbara Walters to ask her children "is mommy a good cook?" but then again, she's not a politician any more. she's a celebrity about to make a good $5m or so on her book, so maybe it is all fair game?

i guess the big picture is that it's unfortunate that there really are a different set of rules for female politicians, and it's unfortunate that one's physical attractiveness is part of the appeal. but the Palin people work her obvious assets as much as they complain about how she's subject to said double-standards, so not sure what to say there.

She's on Hannity tonight

Huffington Post

Over a year after she infamously stalled on Katie Couric's question about what news sources she reads, Sarah Palin has told Sean Hannity what's in her media diet.

"She asked about what I read, and I read," Palin told Hannity in an interview to air Wednesday night on Fox News. "I read Newsmax and the Frontiersman and Wall Street Journal and everything online. I absorb the news via many, many sources."

Newsmax is a conservative news website, while the Frontiersman is the local Wasilla, Alaska newspaper.

In one of the more memorable moments of the 2008 campaign, Palin did not name a single publication when Couric asked, "What newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?"

Palin has said that she was offended by Couric's question because it implied that Alaskans couldn't stay informed like people in the lower 48 states.

In her interview with Oprah, Palin said the question annoyed her.

"I was already so annoyed, and it was very unprofessional of me to wear that annoyance on my sleeve," she told Oprah. "To me it was in the context of, 'Do you read? How do you stay informed? You're way up there!' It seemed like she was discovering a nomadic tribe."

Palin also told Hannity that she believes the Fort Hood massacre was an act of terrorism and that Major Nidal Malik Hasan should have been "profiled."

She also spoke out about David Letterman, saying she wouldn't go on his show and give him that "ratings boost." She described President Obama as "very charismatic, quite articulate" and "very, very talented as a politician," but said she would "not hesitate to say that his associates have been extremely radical."

The interview airs on Fox News' "Hannity" at 9PM Wednesday.

The leaps of logic (or backpedaling) are absolutely astounding.
