“Are you going to let those idiots run you off?” Track Palin asked, according to the book. “You can’t tap out!”

But the book suggests Sarah Palin resisted the advice of her son, who was serving in Iraq, in an attempt to shield her family from the media.

“He said, ‘I know you, Mom. You want to protect us. You want to say, “Screw this, I won’t put my family through this.”‘ Track did know me,” Palin writes…

“I finally said out loud what I knew I had to do,” she writes. “‘I’m not a quitter, Track,’ I finished. ‘I’m going to fight. And that’s the point.’
