Palin Rips American Idol

The Associated Press got an advance look at Sarah Palin's new book, America by Heart, and notes she blasts the television show American Idol and its "talent-deprived" contestants who suffer from "the cult of self-esteem."

Writes Palin: "No one they have encountered in their lives -- from their parents to their teachers to their president -- wanted them to feel bad by hearing the truth. So they grew up convinced that they could become big pop stars like Michael Jackson."

The irony: "The Internet has been abuzz in recent days about how Bristol Palin, who has consistently landed at the bottom of the judges' leaderboard on Dancing With the Stars, has been able to remain on the show. Some critics have suggested that voters -- particularly supporters of her mother -- have been voting in blocs and manipulating the system."
