Going Rogue?

Finally a description of Sarah Palin I can agree with. Maverick was a bit too tame. Maverick seems to refer to someone who actually thinks out what they are doing and chooses to take another way.

According to Webster’s it is an unbranded animal or a motherless calf or one who ditches the program, which is what she did with John McCain’s presidential campaign which is why they said she was “going rogue.”

She is a rogue elephant, which is described as alone and violently aggressive. A rogue elephant is said to be aberrant or “straying from the normal” and “deviating from the natural.”

How Palinesque can you get?

According to Webster, a rogue can be anything from “mischievous” to a “dishonest, worthless shirker” to “exhibiting inferior biological variations.”

Palin has chosen to call herself a “rogue” in her new book, and I couldn’t be more in agreement.

That is Palin – a dangerous, deadly animal charging at everything that moves.
