Sarah Palin: Reality Gone Rogue
Sarah Palin’s memoir officially dropped today, and she’s been making the media circuit pushing her revisionist tome, and she’s not about to let reality get in the way of her facts.
Katie Couric apparently badgered her, deliberately making the VP candidate look bad by leaving most of their infamous interview on the cutting room floor. So the lengthy footage of Ms. Palin unable to name a single newspaper or a Supreme Court decision other than Roe v. Wade, was taken out of context. Rather than being embarrassed by her lack of wherewithall, Palin now feels sorry for Couric. The controversy surrounding her teenage daughter’s pregnancy was the result of hypocritical liberalism and not it’s surprise revelation after the Governor’s nomination- a governor mind you, that thought the best public policy was abstinence-only. And McCain campaign staffers were actually a bunch of jealous back-stabbers, not weary handlers trying to spin the best out of Palin’s copius and admitted screw-ups.
Palin would like us to believe her false narrative. Elicit sympathy while admiring her roguish nature as her book’s title suggests. While literature has added a luster of charming rebelliousness to the term rogue, it’s first and foremost meaning defines one who is aberrant and uncontrolled, someone dishonest. ‘Going Rogue’ is then an apt title for this autobiography.
