(Newser) – The woman who co-wrote Sarah Palin's bestseller-before-it's-published memoir Going Rogue has been palling around with some pretty roguish types herself. Lynn Vincent has co-authored books with a journalist with a penchant for racist rhetoric and a disgraced general, and has herself written that Barack Obama is the "minority survivor" of the "black genocide" (abortion). But Politico also sees a "lively writing style and deep roots in evangelical Christianity" in Vincent's books.
 

Vincent wrote Donkey Cons—a look at criminality in the Democratic party from the days of "ruthless killer" Aaron Burr onwards—with Robert Stacy McCain, a former Washington Times editor who once wrote that ordinary people find interracial romance "revolting." Other memoirs Vincent has ghostwritten include that of Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, a former Special Forces chief who was ousted after he appeared to frame the war on terror in terms of Christianity vs. Islam.
