Is Sarah Palin Running a Rogue Campaign?
Well I see that Sarah Palin has decided the time has come to cut her ties to John McCain's sinking campaign...and save herself.
As the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign enters its final week, reports are bubbling up about internal strife within the Republican ticket that suggest vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is trying to distance herself from the top of the ticket, John McCain.
“She’s lost confidence in most of the people on the plane,” said a senior Republican who speaks to Palin, referring to her campaign jet. He said Palin had begun to “go rogue” in some of her public pronouncements and decisions.
Even though poor old Poppy is still trying to defend his choice as a "cold political calculation" to counter those nasty liberal feminists.
Which to me means that McCain is either crazy or senile. Or a nasty old misogynist. Or just a LIAR.
And that Sarah Palin obviously feels she has a bright future in the Republican Party. Just like this guy thinks she does..
Palin is clearly OF the conservative base in a real and meaningful way; they view her as their first real spokesperson on the national stage in recent memory -- perhaps since Ronald Reagan. It's hard to imagine those feelings going away because she has not worn well with either moderate and independent minded voters of the conservative media.
Which might seem to be a SCARY thing. I saw a picture of a redneck the other day wearing a t-shirt with this on it: "Nigger, please. It's the White House." And there are millions of them out there.
On the other hand it could be the BEST thing that ever happened. Because if Sarah Palin becomes the Evita of the rednecks and the Christianist hordes she will split the Republicans, drive moderates out of the party, and keep them out of power for a GENERATION.
She'll be John McCain's little FrankenSarah who not only destroyed his campaign. She ATE the Republican Party. Gobble. Gobble.
And to think that I once wondered whether she was the Anti-Christ.
Don't you LOVE happy endings?
P.S. Unless of course John McCain wins the election. In which case she's fucked.
And we're DOOMED...
