"Diva" Sarah Palin goes rogue

Former prisoner of war John McCain created a monster with his impetuous, reckless, cynical decision to name dangerously unqualified religious extremist and right wing ideologue Sarah Palin as his vice presidential candidate. CNN reports that McCain advisers say Palin has stepped aside from the failing campaign, has gone alarmingly "off message" and is laying the groundwork for her future as figurehead of a divisive, racist Republican party.

In their words, the empty-vessel demagogue is "going rogue":

"McCain sources say Palin has gone off-message several times, and they privately wonder whether the incidents were deliberate...

"A second McCain source says she appears to be looking out for herself more than the McCain campaign.

"'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.'

"...Two sources... defended the decision to keep her press interaction limited after she was picked, both saying flatly that she was not ready and that the missteps could have been a lot worse.

"'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.'"

So she is a maverick rogue now? A rogue must be a maverick who is a bad maverick; not a good maverick, I guess. So, that makes her a hockey mom rogue maverick reformer who, in her marvelous Saks clothing, drinks 6 packs with Joe on the bridge to nowhere.
