A unique send up of a children's classic, Where the Rogues Things Go presents a hilarious political satire of Sarah Palin’s unchecked ambition and shocking rise to the head of America’s conservative movement. Creative and entertaining, the book begins with Sarah’s early episodes of bad behavior. It retells the time when she seemed doomed to suffer the political version of being sent to bed without dinner for her abuse of power as Governor of Alaska, but instead finds herself transported (almost as if on a magic boat) onto the national political stage as the 2008 Republican Vice Presidential candidate. It follows each of Sarah’s pathetic missteps on the campaign, while simultaneously illustrating the legions of fans who inexplicably grow and grow until they surround her at every campaign stop like trees in a thick forest. But Sarah must also win over the snarling, tea-bagging monsters that lead America’s right wing. She does so with her greatest ploy of all—she bewitches them with a wink and they crown her Queen of the Rogue Things. The tale continues into a tragic future where now President Palin and the Rogue Things go on an unconstrained rampage of extreme conservatism sending America back to the dark days.
