Words out that the release of Sarah Palin’s biography which was previously expected in Spring 2010 has been moved up. We now hear that the book will now actually be released on November 17, 2009, just four months after her hasty resignation as Governor of Alaska.
The title for the new book? Going Rogue. Yes you read that correctly the book title will be ‘Going Rogue’. One has to wonder if Palin has ever looked up the word rogue in the dictionary for the true meaning of the word. I think one would have to say she still doesn’t feel the need to do her research. She’s so rogue she just goes for it.
She might have wanted to look it up though.
Webster’s defines rogue in the following way:
1. An unprincipled, deceitful, and unreliable person; a scoundrel or rascal.
2. One who is playfully mischievous; a scamp.
3. A wandering beggar; a vagrant.
4. A vicious and solitary animal, especially an elephant that has separated itself from its herd.
5. An organism, especially a plant, that shows an undesirable variation from a standard.
1. Vicious and solitary. Used of an animal, especially an elephant.
2. Large, destructive, and anomalous or unpredictable: a rogue wave; a rogue tornado.
3. Operating outside normal or desirable controls: “How could a single rogue trader bring down an otherwise profitable and well-regarded institution?” (Saul Hansell)
v., rogued, rogu·ing, rogues.
1. To defraud.
2. To remove (diseased or abnormal specimens) from a group of plants of the same variety.
To remove diseased or abnormal plants.
An interesting note regarding the title is that those in Alaska know how the word rogue entered Palin’s vocabulary. Palin first used the word to attack Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan during the whole troopergate fiasco.
