Sarah Palin Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin's book is now on the shelves. Does anyone believe she actually wrote this? As for it being a number one best seller it is pretty certain her various PAC's and supporters are buying books in bulk to boost her numbers and speaking fees.
Does anyone remember former Speaker of the House Jim Wright? Newt Gingrich led the attack on Speaker Wright for buying large numbers of his own book and his distribution of them to supporters for much the same reasons. Wright was forced to vacate the Speaker's chair and not long after he ended his long career as a Representative from Fort Worth, Texas.
During the last Presidential campaign the operative word for Palin was "Maverick!" Remember she said John McCain was the biggest Maverick in Congress and she was a Maverick in Alaska and she was always feeling all "Maverickey."
Well now she is going "rogue." The first time I heard the term 'rogue' was in reference to a wild elephant that had gone mad and was attacking villagers. Seems appropriate somehow.
Here is the definition of rogue;
