Sarah Palin’s Gone Rogue

It’s an increasing topic of discussion in the press: Is Sarah Palin calling 2008 a loss and now prepping us for her own presidential aspirations in 2012? People are wondering given that in past month she has:

  • Deliberately contradicted John McCain’s positions on Michigan, North Korea, robocalls, and a constitutional ban on gay marriage.
  • Talked to the press without her McCain handlers present. In some cases, she has appeared to deliberately ditch them and/or to simply ignore their efforts to end her impromptu conversations in order to speak directly to the press corps.
  • She’s even made friends with a non-Joe: Ed the Dairyman out in Roswell, NM. And in her CNN interview she also added “Jane the engineer and Molly the dental hygienist and Chuck the teacher.”

Or, as others have speculated, has communication within the McCain-Palin campaign broken down to the point where the inmates are running the asylum. We remember when Sarah Palin seemingly agreed with Barack Obama and contradicted John McCain regarding U.S. attacks along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border during her ill-fated run to the Philly Cheesesteak Shop. John McCain had to have a sit down with Sarah and Katie Couric to clarify that he’s in charge and no one else so please disregard what Sarah said on camera because he is in charge. Is this just more of Sarah not understanding the message and freelancing?

It’s an intriguing thought: Just what kind of rogue is Sarah Palin?

Read about it in: Anchorage Daily News, New York Times, National Journal.

    the McCain camp has been sending mixed signals since it’s inception… Sarah Palin can’t even keep up with McCain’s endless wavering between “straight talker” and crooked politician
