Guess What? Americans Don't Like Sarah Palin

As we all know, Sarah Palin really likes ordinary, America-loving Americans. That's because her appeal allegedly lies in being one of them, even though most 'ordinary' Americans are not that rich, and she is very rich. Anyway, she loves patriotic Americans so much that she has dedicated her new book to them, as she writes on her Facebook wall: 

The book tour starts this week, and I look forward to it! I'm most looking forward to meeting many of you, shaking your hands, and telling you,"Thanks for loving America." I'll give you a scoop here and tell you what's on the book's Dedication Page – it's dedicated to you – Patriots – who love the U.S.A. as much as I do.

Really, Palin should be celebrating the America-hating, liberal media that keep that stupid thing in the news. Especially since Palin's love is kind of unrequited. According to a Washington Post/ABC News poll, a majority of Americans don't like her that much, and very few would vote for her if she absurdly ran for President.
