Thanks for your inquiry, and thanks REWahoo for pointing me to this question.
I don't have the full Rational Investing Portfolio results as they need to be calculated for me by a research firm using proprietary databases (ie. it costs me and I only do it when a new edition comes out!), but the Sandwich Portfolio, an 8-fund portfolio plus Money Market Fund is a pretty good proxy which hits all the main asset classes (though it leaves out commodities, private equity and a few other minor ones). Anyone can calculate these with the percentage asset allocation in the books and Morningstar, so it's completely transparent.
Results since the last book (which goes through 2006) are as follows:
2009 YTD (through 6/5 close) 5.2%
This year the performance seems to be coming from the International side, probably also helped by dollar weakness. Reversal of the same factors that hosed it in 2008. Stiill as for getting through a rough patch without losing too much sleep, this portfolio seems to be working.
The asset allocation for all my Early Semi-Retirement portfolios are roughly 40% Stocks, (about half foreign), 40% Bonds (also with a good foreign allocation) and 20% Other, split between Commodities, Oil & Gas, Private Equity, Commercial Real Estate and Hedge Fund strategies (Long/Short etc).

. Just got a piece mentioned in the NY Times today which was a nice early Father's Day present.

Until the next edition comes up, I'll be in the studio. Good luck everyone in their portfolio restoration and ER plans!
