Bristol Palin is writing a memoir -- or is she?

Bristolpalin_onextra
Bristol Palin, the 20-year-old daughter of the former Alaska governor and current Fox News commentator Sarah Palin is writing a memoir for publication later this year. The younger Palin is best known for her appearances on "Dancing With the Stars" and for having a child at age 18 with on-again, off-again beau Levi Johnston. 

Well, she was writing the book -- as of Monday, at least. Entertainment Weekly and the Hollywood Reporter linked to the Amazon.com page for the upcoming book. EW.com writer Keith Staskiewicz added, with no small amount of frustration, "I guess the fact that Bristol Palin is apparently set to write a memoir of her own shouldn’t necessarily make my brain implode in on itself like the house at the end of 'Poltergeist.' "

Since then, Amazon has removed the page from its website. The Associated Press reports that "publicist Seale Ballenger of the Harper imprint William Morrow, the book's presumed publisher, declined to comment Tuesday."

Instead of working on her book, apparently, Bristol Palin was talking to E! News, whom she told she would "probably" run for office someday. CBS News reports that in the interview, scheduled to air in two parts on Tuesday and Thursday, Bristol Palin says, "If I saw something that needed to be changed, then I would step up to the plate and do something about it."

Does she talk about her upcoming book? CBS News reports that she says she will "hopefully" write a book someday. Whether it's Palin herself or her publishers who are doing the hoping is not clear.

Thank God...one more fake Palin tome on the .99 table is three too many.

Why would anyone be interested in a memoir by a 20 year old whose only accomplishment was to get knocked up?

thank you old man McCain for unleashing Palin and all her progeny upon the united states

I blame global warming for the Palins. As more ice melts, more and more crap is being released from under the rocks.

Is it a slow news day?

Shouldn't Bristol wait until she's actually DONE something constructive before writing a memoir?

Who cares? Why has this been on the front page of your news for two days? Why give any credibility to this family?
