Washington, Nov 19 (ANI): Sarah Palin makes sure she's never too far from the media spotlight, and after her reality TV show debuted recently, now it's time for her latest tome 'America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag' that comes out next Tuesday.

In her new book, Palin lashes out at 'talent-deprived' wannabes, writing, "Did you ever wonder where the producers of 'American Idol' come up with the seemingly endless supply of people who can't sing but are deluded enough to get up in front of a national television audience and screech out a song anyway?"

"These self-esteem-enhanced but talent-deprived performers eventually learn the truth," she writes.

But she loves "Dancing with the Stars" and says Bristol joined "to challenge herself in a new, fun way," reports The Washington Post.

Talking about Bristol's pregnancy, she writes, "Given the choice of role models between Bristol and Murphy Brown, I choose Bristol," reviving the Dan Quayle-"Murphy Brown" debate about unwed mothers.

Palin also appreciates the "subversive moral messages" in the movies 'Juno,' 'Knocked Up,' and 'The Forty-Year-Old Virgin'.

"A European movie might have had Juno get her abortion in the opening scene and then spend the next hour and fifteen minutes smoking cigarettes and pondering the meaning of life. It would have been depressing and boring," she says in the book.

No love lost for Bristol's ex, Levi Johnston, or reporters: "The lies told about our family on national television were outrageous. ... More than once, I thought, "How could this we worth it? Let's just go back to Wasilla and stop feeding the media beast."

Palin gushes about her daughter in her book.

"She went to college. And worked full time. And took care of a needy, colicky baby ... She worked as hard as any young single mother could possibly work," Palin writes.

Palin also talks about her decision to give up chocolates for a year.

"I believe this feeling of accomplishment is what everyone is created to crave."

And about her infamous hunting trip, she makes a mention, "I eat, therefore I hunt!"

"I often explain that the meat we eat is wrapped in fur instead of the cellophane that customers purchase in grocery stores." (ANI)
