The new media meme is that Sarah Palin is no longer a "maverick", she's a "rogue" — all of which comes directly from McCain advisers that he's since told to shut the fuck up. But even though everyone knows that the stories are being spread by bitter McCainiacs — and, in one instance at least, a new organization more interested in pushing a narrative that reporting a story — no one actually can shut up about it. Last night's Daily Show mashed together Palin speeches, political punditry and clips from Nell, GI Jane, Kill Bill, The Fifth Element and — most hilariously — Species to illustrate our new Real American reality — that while McCainiacs might've liked their little maverick, they certainly don't appreciate her being actually maverick-y. Or laying hundreds of eggs.
