Palin Going Rouge? Big Surprise.

Apparently, the McCain-Palin campaign may not be getting along. Specifically, Sarah Palin may have stopped following orders and seems to be staying off message. Like a rogue cyborg. Or as if she WANTS Barack Obama to win, so that he gets screwed having to govern the country out of Bush's recession and then she can capitalize on her popularity notoriety to run against the Mitt machine and Hillary in 2012. Below, I have two things for you, one the clip from CNN discussing Palin's non-complience; second, I have a video about robots going rogue.

1) CNN clip:

Several McCain advisers have suggested to CNN that they have become increasingly frustrated with what one aide described as Palin "going rogue."

A Palin associate, however, said the candidate is simply trying to "bust free" of what she believes was a damaging and mismanaged roll-out.

McCain sources say Palin has gone off-message several times, and they privately wonder whether the incidents were deliberate. They cited an instance in which she labeled robocalls -- recorded messages often used to attack a candidate's opponent -- "irritating" even as the campaign defended their use. Also, they pointed to her telling reporters she disagreed with the campaign's decision to pull out of Michigan.

"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."

"She's no longer playing for 2008; she's playing 2012," Democratic pollster Peter Hart said. "And the difficulty is, when she went on 'Saturday Night Live,' she became a reinforcement of her caricature. She never allowed herself to be vetted, and at the end of the day, voters turned against her both in terms of qualifications and personally.

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

Either way, they're clearly not on message. I think the campaign has some serious issues figuring out which direction they're going and who's doing the pulling.
