That awkward moment when the reviewer, who was specifically invited to review the book by co-author Nancy French, trashes Sarah Palin's newest book.

So the story is that Nancy French reached out to Jason Mankey, a fellow blogger on Patheos and a self described Pagan, to review "Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas."

Jason is a very kindly fellow, and I think he really tried to approach the task with an open mind.

Did not last long.

Here is a smattering of his observations:

After a quick one and a half page history of Christmas Governor Palin writes: 

” . . So fast forward a few years and jump over to a different continent. ‘Christmas’ became an American federal holiday in 1870 when President Ulysses S. Grant signed a bill the House and Senate had already overwhelmingly passed. In this country, our federal holiday does not honor the agricultural gods of Rome or the pagan rituals of the winter solstice. Here in America, Christmas marks Christ’s birth, a moment of unquestioned historical, cultural, and religious significance. (This is revealed in the actual name of the holiday: Christmas.)” 

There are several problems here, and the biggest is a complete lack of context detailing why Christmas became a national holiday in 1870. As a holiday, Christmas slowly grew in importance throughout the 19th Century, and its growth had nothing to do with Jesus. Christmas exploded in popularity due to secular influences. One of those influences was literary. The popularity of both Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and Clement Moore’s A Visit From St. Nicholas played a large role in spreading the holiday, but neither work makes a mention of Jesus’s birthday. The impulse to “sell stuff” also played a huge role in creating our Modern Christmas. If Christmas had always been this hugely important thing about Jesus, wouldn’t it have been a holiday long before 1870? Don’t tell me that my boozy great-great-great-great-uncle was the first Christian with the willpower to proclaim Christmas a national holiday.

Jason is also stunned to find that not only does Palin attack gay marriage, she also attacks anyone who does not agree with her viewpoints.

 ” . . .This is frequently where liberals and conservatives part ways . . . . Liberals tend to believe people are good, and institutions like the church or the traditional family are actually oppressive . . . By contrast, conservatives tend to believe that people aren’t that great to start with. And without faith and family to guide us and reinforce values that often go against our selfish desires, we’ll drift towards our own destruction.” 

I have never met a liberal who argued that families are “oppressive.” Some of the people I know most dedicated to family are politically liberal. There’s also the innuendo that liberals can’t be Christian.

All in all the book serves as a crash course in Palin's venomous character, that Jason apparently had not been completely aware of before reading the book.

In another section of the book Palin makes the assertion that “there’s a relationship between Christianity and a healthy civilization” that almost resulted in me spitting coffee all over myself. Was civilization “healthy” when the majority of Europeans worked as serfs? How about Christian Europe before the Renaissance when science and reason were dirty words? (Come to think of it, we seem to be headed back to that era.) How about when people were being burnt at the stake for witchcraft in the name of Christ? Slavery was healthy? All of that happened in an era when nearly everyone in Europe was a Christian. I’m not going to blame all of those problems on Christianity, but if those are healthy societies I’d like to see the sick ones! 

Palin’s scorn for atheists almost feels like blood-boiling rage on occasion, and the idea that a person might do good just for the sake of doing good seems alien to her. At one point she states that “”The logical result of atheism is severe moral decay,” an assertion not supported by anything I’ve ever read or come across. I’m confused as to what she thinks these atheists are going to do to society. 

Confusion and bewilderment plagued me throughout Good Tidings, especially during the bits about “The War on Christmas.” There is no war on Christmas, and the only wars on Christmas have generally involved Christians going after Christians. Christmas is bigger than ever, it’s practically inescapable, and if someone says “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” they aren’t secretly honoring Satan under their breath. Christmas is one of the “Holidays” being referred to, I don’t think anyone believes it’s being left out. Perhaps the Palin family doesn’t celebrate the New Year?

At this point Jason is fairly seething, and in the end he does a really good job of summarizing just how Palin gets the entire point of Christmas wrong.

I’ve always liked to believe that The Holidays are a time to celebrate our commonalities instead of our differences. This is where Mrs. Palin and I disagree most on the subject of Christmas. For her it can only be a celebration about the birth of Jesus, and anything else diminishes the holiday. What Palin fails to understand is that the “reason for the season” varies from person to person. If Christmas is just about Jesus for you, that’s fine, and I think that’s beautiful. But I don’t understand why anyone needs what’s in their hearts to be affirmed by Target or Wal-Mart. Aren’t those the last places a Christian wants to see Jesus? Did I miss something in the Beatitudes about Jesus endorsing cheap plastic junk from China? It seems as if Palin wants society to fill some sort of role as religious teacher. If she truly cared about the family and the home, wouldn’t she want those institutions to teach those values?

Of course for all of us here at IM none of this comes as any surprise. After all we know the darkness and hatred that hides in the heart of Sarah Palin.

However it is interesting that the book she is currently marketing to soften her image with anecdotes and family recipes, is in fact serving to inform previously uninformed people as to just how hateful and divisive of a person she really is.

Only Sarah Palin could write a book about Christmas that makes people want to protect the holiday....from her.

      Isn't it just pathetic and sad that "conservatives tend to believe that people aren't that great to begin with"?

      Every one of us are born with a huge capacity for love and kindness and when nurtured it grows and spreads. Most of us have had many heartbreaks and trials and tribulations thrown our way and we still reach out into the world with kindness.

      The fact that this book has not sold well only reinforces the idea that there are more of us who are loving and compassionate than angry and bitter-liberal and conservative both.

      Some of us may not belong to an organized religion but celebrate Christmas with wishes for peace on earth and goodwill towards all. We don't celebrate our differences, we gather together and celebrate our love.

      Happy holidays to all and may your heart be filled with joy and love.

      This woman simply doesn't understand the concept of projection. She has written her own epitaph.
      As a Conservative, Sarah believes that people, including herself, I presume, "aren't that good to begin with." Without "faith and family" to reinforce values, "we’ll drift towards our own destruction.” Sarah has no faith. She uses her family for her own ends. Ergo, by her own logic, values are not being reinforced for her, and she is drifting toward her own destruction. And we can all see that -- she's an anorexic 90 pounds perhaps, and dropping. Anyone with a positive opinion of this fuckwit after all this time is either too stupid or too lazy to examine what has actually come out of her mouth. Most of us were on to her when she sneered nastily about "community organizers" back at the 2008 Republican convention. Come on, Palinbots: You've had FIVE years to figure her out.

    Great review. Very thoughtful and well reasoned. My favorite segment:

    "Palin's tendency to paint with broad strokes allows no room for understanding. She just can't comprehend why a plastic nativity scene on public property might upset somebody. THERE IS NO WALKING IN SOMEONE ELSE'S SHOES IN PALIN'S WORLD. SHE DEMANDS THAT WE ONLY WALK IN HER'S.'

    Obama’s shutdown critics look like morons after budget deal

    Guess what, tired Beltway pundits: Obama's successful leadership from October brought an end to GOP hostage-taking

    ...The budget agreement Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash. struck this week — mutually agreeable to many Democrats and many Republicans — badly discredits both arguments.

    “We’ve got to find a way to make divided government work,” Ryan told reporters Wednesday.

    It’s very hard to look back at the events of the past couple months and not credit Obama with provoking this volte-face. Ryan never really cast his lot with the Obamacare defunders. But back in the summer, he was a leading advocate of the view that Republicans should use the debt limit to force Obama to agree to a budget on GOP terms.

    “I think it will fold into the debt ceiling fight. I think that’s inevitable. And preferable in my opinion. I like combining all of our leverage, which is sequester and the debt limit,” Ryan told National Review. “Nobody believes [Obama won't negotiate].”

    The deal he struck with Murray, by contrast, wasn’t negotiated under threat of default. As such, it contain no fruits of the right’s extortion fantasies. No cuts to big social insurance programs. No pound of Obamacare flesh. But it doesn’t bear any of the hallmarks of a GOP cave either. No tax increase on rich people. No unemployment extension. Nothing about this deal suggests Obama destroyed the GOP and is now running roughshod over them for sport....

    ...In that sense his refusal to negotiate in October wasn’t a failure of leadership, but precisely the tough-minded act of leadership Republicans needed to reach an understanding of the limits of their power....

      ...Sarah and Todd Palin have a well established pattern to those they don't like or feel should not be on this earth and now Martin Bashir has joined these ranks. It is not pretty and it is a terrible place to be in. First once you have publicly said something negative about Todd or Sarah Palin the hundreds sometimes thousands of threatening, nasty, hate-filled emails start to arrive, then and often times in sympatico the phone calls start again spewing negative and hate filled words. Then the emails to your employer starts based in pure ignorance and no bearing on reality but nonetheless they do their job and result in either you being attacked, fired, both. Then the news media starts in on you and you do not get a say back. You are blocked. And if you are lucky that is all that happens.

      ...There is good news in all of this. Not every news outlet agrees with Ms. Palin anymore. They do not all adhere to her whims and report from her point of view. Some have even started calling her a traitor to her own country and many have dropped the title Governor and Ex-governor. In the past three weeks I have seen more accurate portrayals of the Palins and I think we will see more and more of that. Slowly with time, patience, and all of us rallying together we will see the Palins truths unfold before the public they have all deceived.

    The Screwy Scammer of Scottsdale Is Already Full of Shit, What's a Little More?

    ...Remember, psychopaths and bullies are good at playing the victim when anyone gives back to them what they dish out. We know Sarah Palin is ever the victim and has a team of blog comment writers who market her victimhood for her along with a lot of other bullshit. There I go again, "attacking millions of people" and "insulting millions of people" as those Palin Flying Monkeys say. Sarah Palin is very good at setting up situations that get reactions from people they can use to show everyone how victimized they are. Sarah says something vile, gets an angry response and now she has turned it around to benefit herself.

    slightly o/t -- there's a story about paying
    Alaska public pensions out of general funds -- did Sarah time her resignation so she'd qualify for the 2 1/2 year minimum of service as Gov. so she could collect a lifetime pension? Is that a matter of public record?
    Is this one reason for her abrupt resignation? How much is she getting in pension benefits? Should the legislature put a cap on such largesse for those who never served a full term?

      How do we find out what Sarah Palin actually took and will take from the State of Alaska? Will she have a pension paid to her? If so, at what age does it begin? Does she have insurance (life and/or medical) through the State of Alaska? Are any members of her family currently covered by any types of insurance through the State of Alaska?

      I think as long as Parnell is Gov we won't see the information easily if even properly requested. He'll block the request somehow is my guess. But, once he is out of office (and, I sincerely hope he is not reelected by the Alaskan voters!) perhaps the information can be obtained more easily?

      Curious to see if anyone knows the answers?

    2. If I were an Alaskan, and found out that SP gets a lifetime pension for far less than one term as Governor, I would be very angry. After all, she did not quit due to illness or family emergency, she quit because she could and to get $$$ from others. If she gets a pension also, that is gross negligence on the Legislature's part!

      In this case, if you don't do your time, you don't get your dime!

    Source Publishers Weekly. Sarah's little book of holiday hate has been selling about 9,000 copies per week and is 21 in hard cover non-fiction though 12/08/13.

    The Duck Dude Family have 4 books in the top 25 currently. Also, too, The Pioneer Woman's cookbook is out selling Sarah's. Now, that's a real American Family....rich, well, bred and BEEF now that's what's for dinner.....

    I understand that "Patheos" is a site that includes views from ALL religions and non-believers. My first question while reading Jason's excellent and non biased review was, A) What the hell was Nancy French (the ghostwriter of Sarah's Holiday Book AND mini-me's blog) thinking? and B) How many "Are You Farking kidding me? You want me to review WHAT?" 's did she get from other Patheos bloggers?
    What Jason did well was show the Consumerism driven reason for Celebrating "Christmas" in the first place and show Sarah's black, hate filled heart toward all who choose to think for themselves and not believe in Judeo/Christian beliefs.

    Epic Fail, Mrs, French, you clearly don't know the character of who signs your checks.

    I guess Brancy won't have the cajones to link to Jason's review,

  29. OMG! That insufferable witchass is sick beyond belief. It's her insane belief that the "Religion of palin/heath" is what her and her racist, pitiful, sexist, cheating, homophobic, idiot followers believe. Her tiny senseless booklet with a big "O" on its cover is their " Bible."

    It's sorta like a cat giving its feeder a much tortured mouse as a present.

    Ode to President Obama.

    she is sick, cocoa. Puffs crazy.

  31. Do you have rights for all those images you're putting on those t-shirts? I'm sensing both copyright infringement and a post that is mostly designed to advertise your online store.
