Scott Applewhite, File) (Newser) – Sarah Palin's message-broadening campaign is apparently up and running. Her next book, a defense of traditional Christmas values, is slated to hit shelves this November, reports the AP. A Happy Holiday IS a Merry Christmas, published by HarperCollins, will be a critical look at the "overcommercialism" and "homogenization" of Christmas. Palin promises her "fun, festive, thought-provoking book" will urge readers to "unite in defense of our faith and ignore the politically correct Scrooges who would rather take Christ out of Christmas." NPR reminds us that we're still waiting for Palin's fitness book, too.
