With the men hung up on her looks, we could use another perspective.

I've been looking out for reviews of Sarah Palin's Going Rogue to see what other people, especially women, think of it. But I have to say, there haven't been a whole lot of reviews so far. (I'd love to know how many of those million-plus copies sold are actually being read.)

As I was checking to see if there were interesting reviews I could link to for you (we're a full-service blog here at Thomas Jefferson Street), I came across a roundup of early reviews by Time magazine that begins first with a link to a photo gallery of the "fashion looks of Sarah Palin" before actually summarizing the book reviews. Give me a break. A few weeks ago, Time listed its ranking of the top 10 political memoirs of all time—all 10 books were written by men—and there were no photo galleries of their "fashion looks" prefacing the book reviews.

Anyway, here's my review of the book. Please let me know if you agree or disagree.
