Going Fucking Rogue
Posted on October 29, 2008 by Sam Sutherland
I always want to write more about the current American election here. But then I spend an hour reading news and opinion everywhere else on the internet and question how much I truly have to add to the discourse (although I evidently feel my thoughts matter to the world when it comes to Australian DUI cases). Still, there are some things that we here at the Mother Corporation simply cannot ignore. Right now that thing is the phrase “going rogue” to describe the current behavior of No. 1 Crush Sarah Palin. She’s not listening to McCain’s advisers! She’s going off-message! She’s already plotting her run for the crown in 2012!
There isn’t a joke to be made about her that hasn’t been made twelve and a half times on SNL, but seriously, don’t you dream of a day when someone says you’ve “gone rogue” and that they can no longer control you? Fuck, it’s such a rad phrase. I hope one day you go rogue and I’m like, “Who’s reading Juicebox? Oh, shit, they’ve gone rogue!”, and we make a post about your rogue-ed-ness and then Huffington Post blogs about it and two weeks later you’re on TMZ in a bikini. GOING ROGUE HOLY SHIT I LOVE IT EVERY TIME.
