Well, we finally know what was really behind (former) Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's resignation last July. After swearing she had her state's best interest at heart, but saying she couldn't yet reveal her grand plans for the future, we now learn it has to do with BIG BUCKS. After her announcement, the crafty ex-guv apparently took off to California to "co-author" her bio and then went to New York City to sign an $11 million contract with Harper Publishers. Now we have arriving on bookshelves: Going Rogue: An American Life.
Well, if Mrs. Palin turns over her massive book earnings to the State of Alaska, then I'd say she really does have her beloved home's best interest at heart and more power to her. But, if she pockets that money, then shame on her. Of course, one only has to open the dictionary to find the definition of "rogue" to understand what possibly motivates her:
rogue--1. a dishonest person; scoundrel. 2. a playfully mischievous person; scamp. 3. a tramp or vagabond.
Take your pick.
