In fairness she did claim to be the "real" changey politician during the campaign. She also claimed that some Americans are real Americans and some are not. People in New York are not real Americans. People in Alaska are real Americans.
That makes Sarah Palin a real changey American.
What about her husband? Todd is a real changey fellow. He wanted real change for Alaska. He wanted secession. Can you secede from the United States and still be a real changey American?
One change Caribou Barbie is not offering in her ghostwritten book is an end to her lies.
Fact check: 14 lies in Going Rogue

... the Associated Press assigned 11 writers to "fact-check" Sarah Palin's new book, and in return the 11 fact-checkers triumphantly unearthed six errors. That's 1.8333333 writers for each error. What earth-shattering misstatements did they uncover for this impressive investment? Stand well back:
PALIN: Says she made frugality a point when traveling on state business as Alaska governor, asking "only" for reasonably priced rooms and not "often" going for the "high-end, robe-and-slippers" hotels.
THE FACTS: Although she usually opted for less-pricey hotels while governor, Palin and daughter Bristol stayed five days and four nights at the $707.29-per-night Essex House luxury hotel (robes and slippers come standard)...
That looks like AP paid 1.8333333 fact-checkers to agree with Mrs Palin: She says she didn't "often" go for "high-end" hotels; they say she "usually opted for less-pricey hotels". That's gonna make one must-see edition of "Point/Counterpoint".
