Sarah Palin: Which "Rogue" Do You Think She Means?

Sarah_palin_makeup Can we all just admit it? Sarah Palin knows how to use her strengths. She isn't a politician per say (that's why she quit her job in Alaska). The reality is that Sarah Palin is very good at being polarizing.

Strengths are funny things. In Sarah Palin's case, her polarizing ability gets people to make decisions... to take sides. She's the finger on the scale. She's the push that people react to with yet another push (either way). Like Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin knows that a pretty face and extreme views get people talking and THAT results in camera time, ink and blogs. I'm falling for the trap myself right now by blogging about her. And don't fool yourself, being polarizing results in a very good living too.

On November 17th, Sarah Palin will launch her  book "Going Rogue". The net result will be that she'll get a ton of exposure from the book, she'll use her strengths even further to push people to each side. She's a modern day Moses splitting populations through opinion to one side or the other. Admit it: Sarah is good at her strengths and as a result, (like me) she doesn't work either. She get's to be herself.

Strengths aside, I thought I'd offer you a chance to make a choice. No, I'm not going to ask you to decide whether you "like" Sarah Palin or not. That's entirely up to you. Instead, I'm going to give you the chance to decide for yourself what you think Sarah Palin means by naming her book "Going Rogue". Below are some definitions I grabbed as a screen capture from
