The Blame Game

You do not have to be an idiot to realize after reading Politico’s “bombshell” of internal turmoil in the McCain-Palin camp to see what is going on:

“Four Republicans close to Palin said she has decided increasingly to disregard the advice of the former Bush aides tasked to handle her, creating occasionally tense situations as she travels the country with them. Those Palin supporters, inside the campaign and out, said Palin blames her handlers for a botched rollout and a tarnished public image – even as others in McCain’s camp blame the pick of the relatively inexperienced Alaska governor, and her public performance, for McCain’s decline.

“She’s lost confidence in most of the people on the plane,” said a senior Republican who speaks to Palin.”

A “senior Republican who speaks to Palin”??? That is what you call a controlled leak. These kind of things happen for a reason. Palin is trying to distance herself from any culpability in what she apparently believes will be a losing campaign. She is also trying to save (what she believes) her great future as a national leader.

Of course, this kind of blame game will not go unnoticed by her comrades who may not appreciate being blamed for what they believe is her incompetence for high office.

This may get pretty ugly. Go make some popcorn and get yourself a beer out of the fridge.
