The phrase “Go Rogue” has been ingrained in our consciousness as being part of the Palin persona. In case the message of Game Change, and the interview of Steve Schmidt weren’t clear enough, Sarah Palin herself used that as the title of her book, “Going Rogue.”
It defies “common sense” that Sarah Palin , the loser, and the quitter, would deem it her place to give Mitt Romney any advice!
However since Palin regularly gives the President advice, perhaps it should be expected that she would give advice to Romney and Ryan. If the goal was to be more like her, Romney would be lining up speaking engagements and reality shows to be filmed after his loss in November. He is no longer the Governor, so he doesn’t need to quit. His campaign is in total free fall, reminiscent of the 2008 election. Most people would be embarrassed to appear on national television and give any advice to the person who won the Republican nomination. Most people would realize that if you weren’t invited to speak at the RNC, your thoughts and comments are likely unpersuasive and unwelcome by the Republican nominee. That’s not the way Sarah Palin rolls.
Poor Mitt. He’s trying to defend his record from attack by the Democrats on one side and Sarah Palin and Republicans on the other. It seems that Romney is losing the battle. The only redeeming fact is that Palin didn’t tell him that the problem didn’t have anything to do with the size of his cojones or the size of his stick. She didn’t tell him to reload. She didn’t tell him to warn people by ringing those bells. She didn’t assert that a loss by Romney and Ryan would make her the victim of a blood libel. She did tell Mitt he needed to have a “Come to Jesus” moment in the campaign.
Perhaps that was good advice, as Jesus is probably the only one who could save his campaign now.
