  • HAHA! I am kind of bored here at work actually. Things have been slow, but i still have to show up & be busy somehow.

    I heard it on the radio this morning calling herself a rogue & it made me laugh. I thought "does she even know the definition of rogue?" Just thought it was funny...

  • It's obvious to me that she means the 3rd description, she defy's political laws and norms, she is not one of the good ol' boys.

  • She also has the adribute of a rogue elephant, she's not controllable, and she's dangerous to the politicians that have been in power forever. In Alaska she turned all the criminals in that she was aware of regardless of party lines. They don't want her anywhere near the white house because she would turn them all in.

  • Actually, I think it describes her pretty well. Apparently her book is filled with nothing but lies. Several of McCain's campaign workers have issued statements about her lies.
