The Palin "rebellion" story hits Politico's front page

As I speculated last week this is a growing story.
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.....

He said Palin had begun to "go rogue" in some of her public pronouncements and decisions.

The second page has more detail.

This comes the day after Ambinder's rumory post yesterday about "whispers" of infighting and blame.

(PS. The same McCain aides who were responsible for her surprising selection now say that she, not they, is responsible?)

PPS. Newsweek included this in their poll to Republicans,
If John McCain is not elected president, which one of the following three possible candidates would you be most likely to support for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012?

Mitt Romney 35%
Mike Huckabee 26%
Sarah Palin 20%


  • 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

  • That's an interesting point. She has one very good political voice, but lacks the skill, training, experience, whatever to change gears.

    That's a really good point.
