Inauthentic? Dana Perino: Sarah Palin’s Writing “Doesn’t Sound Like Her”

On Fox News Sunday, former White House press secretary Dana Perino suggested somebody’s writing some of Sarah Palin‘s meatier foreign policy musings–and it’s not Sarah Palin.

“It doesn’t sound like her when you read the materials,” said Perino, who conceded it’s hardly uncommon for politicians to have ghostwriters.

Perino said in Palin’s case the folksy style she brings to her public appearances, Twitter posts and on her reality show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska makes the uber-serious written takes, including a recent USA Today op-ed on Iran seem so out of character as to raise questions about her “authenticity,” which Perino claimed has “never been more important.”
