Sarah Palin accidentally burned 10,000 copies of her own book at an "I'm a Real American" book burning bash in Kentwood, Michigan.
The book burning party took place at the beginning of Palin's promotional tour for her new book "Going Rogue".
"I thought it would be, ya know, fun to burn a few of those non-American books at the beginning of my book tour, just to show people that, in America, you have the right to, ya know, burn sh*t that you don't like the way we do in Wasilla," said Palin. "So we picked out copies of things like The Audacity of Hope, Tom Sawyer and the Old Testament and we planned a little bonfire. Somehow, a bunch of my books got thrown in the pile."
Palin remarked that the incident made her seriously consider her position on free speech:
"I now realize that you to have to pay your advance and PR people more than minimum wage if you want the job done right," said Palin. "But don't think for a second that I am in favor of raising the minimum wage because we don't go for that kind of back-assward crap in Wasilla."
A spokesman for Palin's publisher could not be reached for comment, as he was busy celebrating the downward spiral in American reading habits by lighting cigars with $100 bills.
