Politico: “McCain Camp Trying To Scapegoat Palin”

Posted by | October 30, 2008 12:17 | Filed under: Top Stories

They’re going to have to blame somebody, so why not Governor Palin?

In recent days, a McCain “adviser” told Dana Bash of CNN: “She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone.”




Also, a “top McCain adviser” told Mike Allen of Politico that Palin is “a whack job.”


But the real problem here is that John McCain doesn’t seem in control of his own campaign, and that he settled on a running mate whose choice says more about him than it does about her.

As proof that she is [“a whacko”] , McCain aides now say Palin is “going rogue” and straying from their script. Wow. What a condemnation. McCain sticks to the script. How well is he doing?


In truth, Palin’s real problem is not her personality or whether she takes orders well. Her real problem is that neither she nor McCain can make a credible case that Palin is ready to assume the presidency should she need to.


And that undercuts McCain’s entire campaign.
