Also, the heavier and bloodier the civil war becomes between these two factions, the better it will be for our side on election day. If only there were some way to stoke the fires, like Toshio Mifune in Yojimbo. A public meltdown by McCain or Palin is too much to ask for. I don't think even a saint could ask God for that. But humbling the arrogant and powerful is one of the Supreme Being's favorite hobbies.
More from CNN:
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.
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."
A Palin associate defended her, saying that she is "not good at process questions" and that her comments on Michigan and the robocalls were answers to process questions.
