Palin's book has a fitting title

Posted: Friday, October 02, 2009

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.

adj.

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.
