You might not be able to judge a book by its cover but "Going Rogue" is a title that succinctly says it all.

Yes, Sarah Palin, I fully agree that you have picked the perfect title. Perhaps it is the best title ever by a politician.

But it's not the first time I have agreed with what you have done. I just loved how you took money from the private oil companies drilling Alaskan resources and divvied the booty out to the citizens of Alaska. Some gotcha liberal types might call that wealth redistribution and socialism but we know that is just going Sarah.

I also liked how you realized that no matter how tough and self-sufficient Alaskans are that they need more federal subsidies than any other American citizens. Take from the federal government. That's what it's there for. I mean, government is the problem, except for giving out money.

Then there's the whole way that you stood up to those old-fashioned fuddy-duddy Christians and their sexist attitudes. I mean, like what gives with this thing about not letting women being preachers or leaders of men? So what if St. Paul wrote that women weren't supposed to paint their faces like Jezebel or cut their hair or dress in provocative ways? You go, girl. Please don't ever go modest and cover up those legs. Even those Southern Baptists, who won't allow women to preach, wanted you to be vice-president. That's how rogue vogue you are.

There's just one little thing that I'm not sure about. Now, I know you're a champion of traditional, conservative values. And what is more conservative than the American Heritage Dictionary when it comes to defining words. So, please tell me, exactly which one (or more) of these definitions do you mean by calling yourself a rogue:

An unprincipled, deceitful, and unreliable person; a scoundrel or rascal.

One who is playfully mischievous; a scamp.

A wandering beggar; a vagrant.

A vicious and solitary animal, especially an elephant that has separated itself from its herd.

An organism, especially a plant, that shows an undesirable variation from a standard

Or, perhaps, instead of a noun, you meant rogue as an adjective:

Vicious and solitary. Used of an animal, especially an elephant.

Large, destructive, and anomalous or unpredictable: a rogue wave; a rogue tornado.

Operating outside normal or desirable controls: "How could a single rogue trader bring down an otherwise profitable and well-regarded institution?" (Saul Hansell).
