Sen. Claire McCaskill on Thursday touted the Senate healthcare reform bill by taking a dig at former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's new book. 

McCaskill (D) said if the bill was printed in regular size font, it would be the same length as Palin's (R) memoir Going Rogue: An American Life "but with more meat on the bone." She tweeted:

If we printed the health care bill in regular size font it would be same legnth as Sarah Palin's book, but with more meat on the bone.

The Senate healthcare bill is 2,074 pages long. Palin's book is 413 pages long with 16 pages of photographs.

Both healthcare and Palin's book have grabbed the attention of the media and the public this week. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) today set the first major procedural vote for the healthcare reform bill for 8 p.m. on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Palin launched her book tour last night and also began tweeting again. She had taken a nearly four month-long hiatus from the microblogging service until she tweeted on Tuesday on her old account announcing that her new handle would become active.
