1) After she and John McCain lost the 2008 presidential campaign, she returned to Alaska with little interest in governing. Bailey claims Palin told him as early as February 2009 that if she could find the right message to tell Alaskans, she'd "quit tomorrow." In April he said she sent him an email saying, "I hate this damn job." She resigned in July 2009.
2) Palin used her children for political gain. The Daily Beast reports that Bailey blasts Palin for announcing Bristol Palin's pregnancy during the presidential race, as well as for carrying around baby Trig all over the place, even outside in nasty weather.
3) Palin is "obsessed" with righting wrongs she believes were done to her or members of her family. She will wage smear campaigns against anyone who goes against her, Bailey said.
4) Palin is apparently not a fan of Newt Gingrich. When Gingrich got an invitation to appear at a GOP event after Palin failed to confirm, Bailey said she sent him the following email:
Yes, (Newt/GOP) are egotistical, narrow minded machine goons… but all the more reason God protected me from getting up on stage in front of 5,000 political and media ‘elites' to praise him, then it be shown across the nation. At some point Newt would have shown his true colors anyway and we would have been devastated having known we'd earlier prostituted ourselves up in front of the country introducing him and acting like that good ol' rich white guy is the savior of the party.
5) Palin didn't keep her commitments, Bailey wrote:
Getting Sarah to meetings and events was like nailing Jell-O to a tree. On the campaign trail and as governor, Sarah went through at least ten schedulers, with few lasting more than months. Nobody wanted the job because Sarah might fail to honor, at the last minute, the smallest commitments, and making excuses for her became a painful burden.
Bailey said he has not spoken to Palin since the fall of 2009. He said he harbors no ill feelings towards her. It's unlikely that feeling is mutual
