Top McCain Adviser: Palin Is 'a Whack Job'
The internal fight among McCain and Palin staffers got a little more intense over the weekend, when a McCain adviser told CNN, "She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone.... 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."
Today, the blame game got even uglier. The Politico's Mike Allen reports:
In convo with Playbook, a top McCain adviser one-ups the priceless "diva" description, calling her "a whack job."
I suppose we'll be hearing even more of this in the coming days, with McCain/Bush loyalists holding Palin responsible for practically all of the campaign's difficulties. The argument may even have some merit.
