Merry in March: Sarah Palin defends Christmas from 'politically correct elite'

← return to Water Cooler

It’s been a while since Sarah Palin wrote a book. The cultural plight of Christmas, however, has put the one time Republican vice presidential candidate into author mode.

Mrs. Palin has forged a new deal with publisher HarperCollins to pen “A Happy Holiday IS a Merry Christmas,” scheduled for November release.

“Palin defends one of the most sacred holidays of the Christian faith against the politically correct elite who have hijacked the season,” the publisher says, referring to the book as “a call to action.”

The author will define the case for “holding traditional Christmas dear to our hearts and for bringing back the freedom to express the Christian values of the season.”

Mrs. Palin intends to keep references to Jesus Christ in public displays, school concerts or other events. She will also take on the “over-commercialization and homogenization of Christmas in today’s society,” the publisher says.

“Amidst the fragility of this politically correct era, it is imperative that we stand up for our beliefs before the element of faith in a glorious and traditional holiday like Christmas is marginalized and ignored,” Mrs. Palin says.

“This will be a fun, festive, thought provoking book, which will encourage all to see what is possible when we unite in defense of our faith and ignore the politically correct Scrooges who would rather take Christ out of Christmas.”
