Author of controversial new book about Palin discusses allegations about drugs, sex

Joe McGinniss' controversial new book about Sarah Palin, "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin," is set to hit stands today and it is already generating a lot of buzz.

The book touches on virtually every controversy, rumor and accusation about Palin's political and personal life. Among other claims, McGinniss alleges that Palin was an image-obsessed governor and a poor parent who once used cocaine.

The book has received a hefty amount of criticism from both Palin's supporters and other outlets like the New York Times, which calls the book "dated" and "petty".

McGinniss responds to this criticism today on American Morning and discusses the various claims he made in the book.

    I feel the death penalty needs to be in place in every state, with the new forensic science advancement in DNA, etc the court system speaks for itself. Wait until your family becomes a victim, you will want the justice system to do more in the justice system. Do like Texas, they have set up an express lane for the death penalty.
