Today’s CNN headline: Palin’s ‘going rogue,’ McCain aide says.
Several McCain advisers have suggested to CNN that they have become increasingly frustrated with what one aide described as Palin “going rogue.”
“She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone,” said this McCain adviser. “She does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else.
“Also, she is playing for her own future and sees herself as the next leader of the party. Remember: Divas trust only unto themselves, as they see themselves as the beginning and end of all wisdom.”
“Her lack of fundamental understanding of some key issues was dramatic,” said another McCain source with direct knowledge of the process to prepare Palin after she was picked. The source said it was probably the “hardest” to get her “up to speed than any candidate in history.”
While Joe Biden seems to keep misspeaking in awfully unfortunate ways, it seems as if the McCain-Palin combo is about to rip itself in two, with Palin and McCain advisors openly feuding. A few news agencies have independently speculated that this is the start of a “Palin for President, 2012” campaign.
