The November 17 release of Sarah Palin s new memoir, Going Rogue: An American Life, coincides with the launch of Going Rouge: The Sarah Palin Rogue Coloring & Activity Book by new independent publisher TBTM Media. Satirist Micheal Stinson and political cartoonist Julie Sigwart have teamed up to create this parody, which mercilessly lampoons Sarah Palin, and skins her policies like she would a rogue moose.
The 48-page coloring book features puzzles, word games, and mazes, like "Help Sarah find her way to the White House" and "Where in the world does domestic Alaskan oil go?" The reader can help Sarah (dressed in fishing overalls) choose her fishing gear from: an axe, a chainsaw, a pistol, and a bomb. We've all heard Sarah's "I can see Russia from my house!" -- now here's your chance to color the Kremlin rouge from her kitchen.
When asked why he wanted to create this political cartoon parody about Palin, Stinson said, "We are environmentally conscious folks, and consider Sarah Palin a threat to ecosystems everywhere. She is continuing the disasterous legacy of George W. Bush, and is an epitome of the stereotypical 'Ugly American.' We wanted to show the real Sarah Palin, warts and all, who otherwise is just another slick, glossy PR machine invention." Stinson added, "Those Palin books, they're just a buncha words - ours has pictures! And, In the interest of fairness, we have a confession to make: Palin didn't write this book either."
