Thanks But No Thanks: The Voter's Guide to Sarah Palin

Front Cover
Harvard Perspectives Press, 2008 - Biography & Autobiography - 178 pages
Within hours of the stunning announcement of Sarah Palin as Senator John McCain's surprise Republican running mate, journalists, activists, and ordinary concerned citizens began to research Palin's biography, public statements, and political background. Sue Katz' Thanks But No Thanks: The Voter's Guide to Sarah Palin is the product of the best of that research and weaves the personal and the political together in a compelling, thematic presentation of what Americans should expect if Palin is elected either in 2008 or as President in 2012.

Katz engages Sarah Palin and her record relentlessly on issues such as the economic crisis, foreign policy, human rights, gender issues, and honesty in government. Also included as handy references for voters and debate-watchers: a year-by-year chronology of key events in Palin's life; a detailed history of Palin's performance in past elections; and the full text of her acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.

About the author (2008)

Author and teacher Sue Katz has published journalism and political commentary for many years and is the creator of the popular Sue Katz: Consenting Adult blog. Her passport shows more wear than Palin's--she has lived and worked on three continents, teaching martial arts in her institutes in Israel, promoting global volunteerism while living in Europe, and writing, editing and teaching (from salsa to senior fitness) in the United States. A rebel with a newfound interest in electoral politics, Sue continues her lifelong commitment to social justice activism from her home outside Boston. She attended Boston University as an undergraduate and earned her master's degree from Tel Aviv University. Her second book, an edgy and unabashed look at the private behavior of boomers, is due in 2009.
