Juneau, Alaska - (Kitty Litter): Poison pen specialist Kitty Kelly was laughing all the way to her First Carpetbaggers Bank of Prudhoe Bay safety deposit box today.
A seven figure banker's draft from publisher HarpyCollins guarantees one of the best ever Thanksgivings since the 1991 Nancy Reagan blockbuster.
Memoir client Sarah Palin is also delighted, lapping up the limelight on coast-to-coast prime time, beguiling Oprah and winning hearts 'n' minds.
So what that the 500-page puff-piece has already been discounted at every WalMart and gas station from Anchorage to New Orleans?
Kelly's own publicist is thrilled to bits now his client has overtaken Ms Palin into pole position in the nation's race to the top of the 100 People Who Are Screwing Over America list.
Toppling the Obamas from the prized No#1 slot will be a mere formality by Christmas Day.
