Vivified Caribou Barbie Doll Runs Amok

The McCain campaign will put up with a lot of things -- willful ignorance, race-baiting, ceaseless lying, scurrilous innuendo, etc. But this?:

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.

... "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.
The campaign now faces the ugly prospect of getting exactly what it asked for by picking Sarah Palin: an unpredictable dullard prone to believing the promotional campaign that labels her a maverick.

If true, it's especially interesting she doesn't even trust her family.

Paul, yep, quite interesting. I think it goes to show that the trouble with being dumb is that you don't even realize you're dumb.

Well, that explains our current President.
