Going Rogue Cheap

This is the latest from Human Events, the conservative blog that just keeps on giving. You are asked to join and get Sarah’s new masterpiece at a discount. This is of course the only way this book makes it to the best seller list, through bulk sales to people who will give it away. But the come-on is priceless.

Dear Fellow Conservative:
One year ago, Alaska Governor and vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin delivered a speech at the Republican National Convention that electrified the GOP’s conservative base.

But as the campaign unfolded, Palin became a lightning rod for criticism — much of it viciously directed not only at her, but at her family.

Democrats, forgetting feminism, mocked Palin as an empty-headed beauty queen and bad mother.

Excuse me! Forgetting feminism? No, remembering what it is that feminism actually stands for. See my post from last year.

Meanwhile, some GOP insiders leaked complaints to the press that Palin was harming the ticket by “going rogue” as an outspoken fiscal and social conservative.

And yet, Sarah decided to use that epithet as the title for her biography. Going rogue, what does that mean? A crazed elephant leaving the herd to rampage on its own? Rogue has many meanings. Some are spot on, at least from my perspective.
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 that has separated itself from its herd.
5. An organism, especially a plant, that shows an undesirable variation from a standard.
adj.
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
v.tr.
1. To defraud.
2. To remove (diseased or abnormal specimens) from a group of plants of the same variety.

The attacks didn’t end with the election — if anything, they got worse, as Palin’s enemies resorted to saying almost anything about her to end her political career.

So she quit because people were attacking her?

Now, in her eagerly anticipated memoir, Going Rogue, Sarah Palin tells her side of the story — about her life, her family, her principles, her career, her vice-presidential candidacy … and her possible political future.

Please, no. A political future? How? I won’t buy the book to find out either. I am just praying it ain’t so.

For a limited time, we are able to make Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue available to you for the incredibly low price of just $8.95, plus $5.95 shipping and handling.

Those bulk orders will put it on the best seller list no doubt.

We’ll ship your copy of Going Rogue as soon as it’s released by Mrs. Palin’s publisher on November 17.

Plus, you will get a FREE Bonus — 6 free issues of HUMAN EVENTS, the National Conservative Newsweekly, delivered right to your mailbox.

That’s right, there will be no charge for a six-issue trial subscription to HUMAN EVENTS when you order Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue at our special, heavily discounted price.

Why HUMAN EVENTS? Here’s what bestselling author (and HUMAN EVENTS legal correspondent) ANN COULTER has to say about it:

“HUMAN EVENTS is the publication I have called my editorial home for years. Not only do I write a weekly column for HUMAN EVENTS, I devour it from cover to cover.

“Why? Because it’s the one newspaper I can count on to bring me the absolute, unvarnished, hard-hitting truth. And so should you.”

If Ann Coulter says it, it must be true, right?

The voices in HUMAN EVENTS ring true — Pat Buchanan, Chuck Norris, Michael Reagan, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, and more.

Mary Matalin says that “HUMAN EVENTS is a leading voice of the conservative movement — every conservative should read it.” And Oliver North states that “HUMAN EVENTS has been the flagship publication for the past 64 years.”

Ringing endorsements all. I know that if Chuck Norris and Ollie North are behind it, this must be like the Bible or something.

This is an offer without risk to you.

If you don’t count choking to death on your own vomit.

Just order Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue now — and get 6 free issues of HUMAN EVENTS.

Sincerely,

Thomas S. Winter
Editor in Chief, HUMAN EVENTS

Guess what? I think I’ll pass.

Sarah, you were so misunderstood

Not a big Conan fan, but I love William Shatner. Who knew it was poetry? If only she’d had bongos.

Gone but not forgotten

Just in case I need a reminder of what was so frightening about this woman, I can always look at this. She officially stepped down as Governor of Alaska today and I hope she will just take her money for speaking engagements and keep away from me forever.

PAC money? I don’t see how it helps her to step down. Quitter? Stay visible on the rubber chicken tour of the USA? What can she do to look presidential? I hope he is right that she wants to be a TV star. Give her a show FOX so I never have to see her again. Please!!!

Ding Dong the Bitch is dead

When FOX News comes out and says Palin is a kook, you know it is either April Fool’s Day, the End of the World, or they cannot argue the point any longer. Please let this be her exit line!

The funniest thing here to me is that the male commentator expected Liz Trotta to be on his side that Palin was being mischaracterized and she goes and nails Palin for being the nut job she is calling her inarticulate and undereducated. “I think a lot of this criticism is well deserved.” Priceless!

The Scariest Woman In My America

I know I said I wouldn’t talk about her any more, but today’s resignation makes her my most feared woman alive. I know she has an agenda — a larger purpose. screen-capture-2 She says she is resigning so she can

fight for all our children’s future from outside the governor’s office

Where is this place she speaks of? What does the PAC have to do with this plan? She said this has “been in the works for months.” I am hoping against hope that she has finally awoken to the writing on the wall, that she is a loony tune and has no future and it is time to take care of her family and write her book and live off the big fat check offered her and fade into the vastness that is Alaska, but I am very afraid that this is just the beginning of her campaign for higher office. Of course, one might ask, how can a less than one term governor actually think they are qualified for higher office? Palin couched her resignation in faux altruistic motives:

“I thought about how much fun other governors have as lame ducks. They maybe travel around their state, travel to other states, maybe take their overseas international trade missions. I’m not going to put Alaskans through that,” she said. “I promised efficiencies and effectiveness. That’s not how I’m wired. I’m not wired to operate under the same old politics as usual.”

So serving out your term is a bad thing. Even if you spend every last minute actually working for the people who elected you to serve out your term? This woman is a whack job and she has people backing her for higher office. I am more scared than ever about the future of this country.

Mark Your Calendar for fun, fun, fun!

If I had the guts (and the money), I would go to this just to see who shows up. Sure Palin will be there and Ann Coulter will be hanging with her homies, but the rest of the crowd, who are these people? Cheney and Bush were both speakers last year, as were McCain and Huckabee, but the roster and agenda are not yet available. (I’ll be waiting by my mailbox.) Who will be the headliners for 2009? For only $700, I could attend all the dinners and the speeches (to hear Ann Coulter in person, ooh!) and the exhibits, too. And oh, what a draw they have there! Exhibitors include:
