Palin Goes Rambo on McCain

Governor Sarah Palin is apparently going off message on the McCain campaign for President on purpose. According to CNN she does not like how her image and roll out on world politics was handled. Maybe Chusck Todd of MSNBC was right on the lack of chemistry between the two politicians. She is after all a very strong woman and maybe too strong for the McCain people to keep quiet on the political campaign. Over at CNN they have this to say..

McCain aide: Palin 'going rogue'
Posted: 02:15 PM ET

Tensions within the McCain-Palin campaign are spilling into the public. A McCain aide told CNN that Gov. Palin is a 'diva.'

ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico (CNN) – With 10 days to go until election day, long brewing tension between Sarah Palin and key aides to John McCain has become so intense, it is spilling out into the public.

Several McCain advisers have suggested to CNN they have become increasingly frustrated with what one aide described as Palin “going rogue” recently, while a Palin associate says she is simply trying to “bust free” of what she believes was a mishandled roll-out that damaged her.

McCain sources point to several incidents where Palin has gone off message, and privately wonder if they were deliberate. For example: labeling robo calls “irritating,” even as the campaign was defending the use of them and telling reporters she disagreed with the campaigns controversial decision to pull out of Michigan.

A second McCain source tells CNN she appears to now be looking out for herself more than the McCain campaign.

How about the New York Post on this same issue?

This is refreshing news that the media should pick up on. Governor Palin has done nothing wrong in this campaign for President other than following the advice of the handlers in the McCain campaign. She isn’t a national politician and has never claimed to be one. She is the Governor of a small electoral state where you can run rough and tough and she fits that image in a state that lives on the last frontier of America. Sarah Palin is ten times the Maverick of John McCain and has earned the Governors office the hard way, she fought for it. Love her or hate her, she is still the Governor of the great state of Alaska.

So why is Sarah going rogue in the campaign? Is she not buying the sales pitch she is supposed to sell? Is she pissed off that the McCain campaign is telling her to dummy down on the issues? Why is Sarah Palin going rogue? 2012 is the answer. She sees the future and knows where the battleground will be after a Liberal President, Liberal run Congress and Senate will be. Governor Palin is painting the background for her run in 2012 and God bless her for it. Barack Obama and the coming Congress of Democrat led seats has two years to fix many problems. They need to start working on day one and keep working till all of the problems we face are confronted, discussed, legislated, fixed, investigated, or whatever it needs to be done to get America back on the right tracks.

If the Democrats as the polls all indicate come into power and abuse it as the Republicans did, then Sarah Palin is front and center in 2012 as the Republican nominee for President. One fact is sure, she does not believe in her heart that McCain and company can win this race. If she did, she would not go rogue in the last week before the election. How that effects her 2012 bid is up to her own political party but she has bucked them before and probably will do so again in the future.

I’m guessing that Governor Palin will be either Congresswoman Palin or Senator Palin from Alaska in the coming years. Her eyes are no longer on Vice President Palin. When I see Sarah Palin, I don’t see a second chair in her personality. I do see her making a run for the President in 2012 or 2016 and having a damn good chance at it if Obama and the Democrats screw us all over.

All I can report is if Sarah Palin does not believe the message John McCain is selling, is being told to shut up, held back, cloistered from the media, or pretty much told to follow the campaign talking points only , is that not the same as woman should be seen and not heard? I honestly can’t picture Governor Palin saying that she needed $150,000 in clothes and makeup? That just does not make sense to me and that leads one to think of only political handlers out of control in the McCain campaign.

John McCain didn’t pick her as a Maverick as much as he picked her to be a pretty face, a woman, and after that he wanted her to shut the hell up. That was how his generation treated woman, we live in the present Senator McCain. Woman are not a trophy prize, they are people too! Smuck!

Congrats to you Governor Palin for going rogue too! You just won the hearts and minds of many people across America for the next Presidential election.

there has been mixed signals from the McCain camp since it's inception... looks like not even Sarah Palin can keep up with McCain's endless wavering between "straight talker" and crooked politician

It's interesting to see this battle to spread blame getting so heated before the election has even been lost...

The old, patrician, grey-haired camp in the Republican party have firmly targeted Palin as the scape goat: Chris Buckley, Ken Adelman and others using her as the principle excuse for jumping ship.

Meanwhile, the moose hunters have turned on McCain, who they never really trusted, and blamed him for not getting down and dirty quick enough. Palin is trading on the anger that Red-state values aren't being properly respected or defended in order to try and keep her career alive.

But the sixty-four million dollar questions are these: does this portend a deeper split in the Republican party? In which camp is the real heart of the Republican party found? And which side is going to win when it comes to writing the history of the McCain defeat in '08?

Sarah Palin is just a joke. The whole McCain campaign is. The fact that she spent mega bucks of tax paying dollars on makeup, wardrobe, and her kids travel is just a HUGE red flag of how the next 4 years will go if she and McCain are elected into office.

Interesting post and comments.

Noteworthy is how certain elements of the GOP, so outspoken in 2004, have been muted, including the Religious Right and the neoconservatives.

Just a few more days, and we'll know how this all pans out. Let's remember what our mothers taught us, "Don't count your chickens before they hatch."

Palin is on MSNBC right now spouting talking points at a rally. I'm telling you, there is nothing there.

The crowd is chanting, "Use your brain, vote McCain," and "I am Joe! I am Joe!" and her response to them and to America? "You betcha!"

Why am I thinking of Louisiana's Huey P. Long?
