Going Rogue, Romney-Style

Wall Street Journal:

Sarah Palin fans can expect to see a new Palin political organization surface as her memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life,” hits the shelves next month.

“There will be an announcement about it coming up,” Palin associate Tim Crawford said Wednesday.

The New York Post reported this week that Palin’s new group will be called “Stand Up For Our Nation.” (News Corp. owns both the Post and The Wall Street Journal as well as HarperCollins Publishers, publisher of Palin’s book.) Crawford, who is treasurer of Palin’s existing political-action committee, SarahPAC, refused to provide any details about the new organization’s purpose or structure.

Within hours of hearing this news, a spokesperson for Mitt Romney announced that the former Massachusetts governor will be starting a new political organization called "Stand Up For Unconstitutional Health Care Mandates and Gun Control Laws".
