I feel a little guilty bringing any sort of attention to this, because as the saying goes in the media world, any press is good press. And the last thing I need is the guilt of knowing that I helped sell even one copy of Sarah Palin’s 400-page memoir, Going Rogue. That’s a burden I could hardly bear – so, even if you are curious about this, just remember: curiosity killed the cat. Don’t be the cat.
Since we are all about definitions here at Sickeningly Liberal, I decided to consult Merriam-Webster for the accepted definitions of the word “rogue”:
Main Entry: rogue
1: vagrant, tramp
2: a dishonest or worthless person : scoundrel
3: a mischievous person : scamp
4: an individual exhibiting a chance and usually inferior biological variation
5: (adj) corrupt, dishonest
6: (adj) of or being a nation whose leaders defy international law or norms of international behavior
Well, shit. I had an entire essay planned out about how the 2012 Mayan-predicted apocolypse was simply the election of Sarah Palin as President, and how her book’s ghostwriter is uncredited on the cover (if you’re an elected governor that was up for the Vice Presidency, shouldn’t you be competent enough to write a memoir on your own anyway?), and then point to an article that already calls Palin out on ten blatant lies in her memoir.
I think Merriam-Webster already said it better than I ever could though.
