Politico reports that Sarah Palin wants to "go more rogue" as she kicks through the fence the McCain people used to corral her the moment she was selected as McCain's running mate.
It should be clear to everyone now that the Republican Party has been running two campaigns for president - campaigns that worked together only when they were ahead. As the clock runs out, they're now competing with one another to spin a probable election loss and take hold the reins of power as the party prepares to rebuild.
Palin represents an influential piece of the Republican base that McCain needed to win over to win on Nov. 4. He never really did. That piece of the base never truly respected McCain and McCain never truly respected it. The unhappy relationship has played itself out in a bizarre but memorable ritual dance across a dwindling number of battleground states. If McCain-Palin lose, watch the body politic try to cut off its own head.
