Going Rogue

copyHere’s the cover…up.


  1. Bleah.

  2. I wonder if that picture from Runner’s World – the one with Palin inappropriately wrapping herself in the flag – is going to be the back cover? I agree – bleah.

  3. I heard the book’s also to be released in Russia, under the title, “Moosemeat: An American Dish.”

  4. A flag pin? No bear pin?
    Somebody messed up.
    She needs a serious mud pack to slurp up the oil face spill

    • A flag pin, most likely made in China, is certainly a statement.

  5. From the intro of Entertainment Tonight which flashed the book cover & pics of Sarah, she is being asked — Can you see yourself as a talk show host?

    Don’t know what else until segment plays — YUCK but actually being asked a question — WTF

  6. May I offer this observation re: the cover photo? Bad choice. Why? This is what it says: Palin promises us cloudy skies. There is a lot of darkness in those clouds. This book says, from a psychological standpoint, that Palin is a harbinger of storm.

    Also, it reminds me of the turkey slaugher footage; it is as if Palin is unaware of anything around her, and how it appears. She is hopeless.

    Would it have been too hard to have her pose with a clear blue sky? Less darkness in the clouds????

    • Sorry, typo. Of course, I meant the “turkey slaughter” footage of Nov. 2008.

  7. Wow, that flag pin’s not nearly sparkley enough, nor big enough. And where’s the polar bear pin?

    (oops, snark off now)

  8. Now, HERE’S a flag pin …..,29307,1840331_1763295,00.html – “Palin’s flag pin reads “A Grateful American”

    Why isn’t she wearing a bigger flag pin? Why does Palin hate America?

  9. Is that a prisoner’s jumpsuit she’s wearing?

  10. From Rick:

    Thanks to an anagram maker, here a few quick anagrams for “Palin Going Rogue”:

    Gun Roping Goalie
    Ageing Group Lion
    A Groupie Longing
    Aligning Pure Goo
    Aging Loonier Pug

    But here are my favorites:
    Gag Upon Religion
    – AND –
    Guano Piling Ogre

    • A few I saw on the ADN website I liked for “Going Rogue” were; groin gouge, roe gouging and our gig gone.

    • What a great concept! Anagrams… looks like I’ve found myself a new name cuz we all know Palin is little more than a guano piling ogre. Perhaps it’s just a polite way of saying she’s full of poo!

  11. Thanks, Shannyn for sharing. That pin makes her look like an American patriot; I guess they don’t make a pin for the Alaskan Leech.

  12. Ohhhh shiny!

    • That was my reaction as well Greytdog

    • What… her nose or her chin?

      Don’t they have medicine for that?

  13. louder ‘GAG UPON RELIGION” yeah!

  14. I guess the flag pin is to pull in the people from ‘little pockets of real america’. Yuck.

  15. A red warm-up suit jacket?

    I wonder how long it took them to decide just how far to unzip that zipper, or how far to put it back up when she kept pulling it down after they turned away….

    Photoshop much?

  16. I am sure that someone can photo-shop that red into a an orange jumpsuit fairly easily.
    Lets hope that is the REALITY of the situation down the road as well. There are more ‘ investigations ‘ she has not been cleared of… yet.

    And what..? No posing in her ‘ typical, everyday, run-of-the mill Artic Cat Jacket ‘ that she JUST HAPPENED TO pull out of the closet that day..?
    Maybe She should have looked at the fine print on that contract she said ‘ she never looked at ‘ in her APOC declaration. I’ll bet Artic Cat would have written her a nice check if she had worn it. But then maybe not…. seeing as she explained just because she is wearing it… she is not a walking billboard. Only Billboards get PAID for advertising.

  17. Triple “bleah”!

  18. Rogue my big fat shiny ass…what a crock…

  19. misunderestimated freedom lover

  20. Quadruple bleah

  21. Gag!

    • with a silver spoon or a wooden spoon? 😉

  22. I think “Going Rogue” is an apropos title:

    rogue–noun 1. a dishonest, knavish person; scoundrel. 2. a playfully mischievous person; scamp: The youngest boys are little rogues.
    3. a tramp or vagabond. 4. a rogue elephant or other animal of similar disposition. 5. Biology. a usually inferior organism, esp. a plant, varying markedly from the normal.
    –verb (used without object) 6. to live or act as a rogue.
    –verb (used with object) 7. to cheat.
    8. to uproot or destroy (plants, etc., that do not conform to a desired standard). 9. to perform this operation upon: to rogue a field.
    –adjective 10. (of an animal) having an abnormally savage or unpredictable disposition, as a rogue elephant. 11. no longer obedient, belonging, or accepted and hence not controllable or answerable; deviating, renegade: a rogue cop; a rogue union local.

    • What about the sub-title? I’m thinking, take out “An American” and insert “A Secissionist’s”. What think you? Any other suggestions?

  23. Ahhh, her “made in China” Flag pin.

    • I noticed that also, too.

  24. The whole image looks so fake and piecemeal.
    –The lighting on her shiny new face is an indoor studio shot,
    — the highlighted extensions & demi-bangs are just so,
    –then she is “placed” in an outdoor, just-about-to-thrash-my-guts setting.
    — The red warm-up jacket says at best “I’m going for a run” and at worst “I’m late getting Piper to school and I threw this on over my pajamas for carpool” (but the hair and earrings say I’m ready for my $63,000 dinner)
    — and then the flag pin slapped on the jacket is just pandering. Who wears a pin of any kind on such a casual outfit?
    –and last but not least, look at the taupe/pink color of her lipstick and the hazel of her eyes, and then at how jarring the unflattering reddish orange of the outfit is in contrast. Her coloring cries out for olive or black or navy. The red I can only imagine is the Harper Collins art dept’s oh so subtle attempt to evoke the red white & blue with the ominous sky.
    And now I have spent more time on this than I ever plan to spend actually reading it!

  25. Smacking forehead…just realized that of course that reddish orange jacket is “Reagan Red,” an homage to Nancy’s favorite color — see photo at

    • Well I guess she is trying to make up with Nancy and the rest of the Simi Valley crowd she stood up. Yep, this picture is just as phony as the woman herself, but I would love a photo shopped orange jump suit. You betcha!

    • That’s the color of the Red China flag and she’s gone rube.

  26. The dark cloudy skies are a message for her hard core religious followers because for them it’s about fear and end of times.

  27. You would have thought she could have found a beautiful Alaskan mountain for the background. From the jacket cover, I would put this book in the sport section of the bookstore. “An American Lie” not an “An American Life.”

  28. Is it just me, but I think it looks as if her cleavage has been photoshopped? It is nearly up to her neck!
    Maybe it is just a shadow. Miaow

    • What’s been photoshopped is her coarse, kinky gray hairs that like to stick up – loud and proud. Hair extensions don’t hide the fact that she’s a worn-out middle-aged woman trying to look hot.

  29. Don’t we all wear a flag pin on our warm-up track tops? Nice red-white-and-blue cover – with bonus hair extensions! Class-aaay.

  30. Is this, “The Liar, The Witch and The Wardrobe?”

  31. I’ve commented here several times on Palin posts and I can never think of anything to say except I HATE HER!!!!

    • You are too beautiful to hate anyone, Lynne.

      Now, go get that paddle and get to work!

  32. Lynne must not hate. I dis-like her as well though. But no matter like or dis-like the ditzes book is already #1 seller and not even one copy has been pysically sold yet.
    I just hope they get rich enough to stay in California and do not return to Alaska and I mean ALL of them.
    It is time to move on and leave Palin behind. Worry more about the FEMA prison camp Fairbanks it is much scarier than Sarah Palin!

  33. Here’s a great letter in the Juneau Empire today!
    Nick Jans for Governor!

    Palin’s book has a fitting title
    Juneau Empire

    Ex-governor Sarah Palin is to be commended for finally coming clean to the people of Alaska with her forthcoming book “Going Rogue.” Seldom has a title been more succinct or on the mark. Here’s what the American Heritage Dictionary has to say on the matter:

    Rogue: n.

    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 (sic) 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 roguetornado.

    3. Operating outside normal or desirable controls.

    Used as a transitive verb, it means “to defraud.”

    Oh, now she tells us.

    Nick Jans


  34. Just saw a great comment about the cover over at Wonkette – something to the effect of “Notice how Palin is looking to the left? Is she watchin’ Putin?” Bwaaahhhhh …..

    • Proof that Palin is so far right that she’s actually a leftist.

  35. This “book” is so lucrative, there’s more from the family of quitters:

    Todd Palin Resigns From Oil Job

    Like his wife’s surprising resignation, this appears to be a change of plans. From an interview last July:
    Todd Palin did say that Alaska would remain their home base and indicated that, despite the millions that may come their way after his wife leaves office, he had no plan to give up his blue-collar jobs.

    “I’ll always be a fisherman, I’ll probably always be out working on the slope,” he said, alluding to his oilfields job in the state’s far-northern tier.

    Read more at:

    • WOW, a family of quitters. First Sarah now Todd whose next? Hopefully Meg Stapletongue.

  36. I thought “going rogue” was like going ‘commando”. She gotta be careful how she exit the back seat of de limo…

  37. I think Palin’s star has already gone nova. Once the false hype of book sales purchased by conservative groups has died down, Palin’s book will probably be best used as Lynne Cheney firewood. The 22 percent of American simpletons who slobber over her appearance will be there for awhile longer, but the rest of her followers may come to see the light has faded to reveal a very self serving and shallow woman. Going Rogue? How about, The Snowy Ruse.

  38. She loves herself way too much. That picture should be in the dictionary next to the word “narcissist”.

    • Why… lookee here… it’s here! Her picture is right next to the definition!!

  39. The title should be: INCOHERENT
    Ramblings of a fisherman’s wife

  40. “You would have thought she could have found a beautiful Alaskan mountain for the background.”

    Like: “Denali, the great one” ?!
