Palin First

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Speaking of Palin rallies in Florida -- which I did earlier -- it seems that, like Palin rallies elsewhere, they're all about... Sarah Palin:

At a boisterous Sarah Palin rally in Polk City, Florida on Saturday afternoon, one name was surprisingly absent from the campaign décor — John McCain's.

*****

[T]he GOP nominee's name was literally nowhere to be found on any of the official campaign signage distributed to supporters at the event.

I suspect this reflects a number of things:

1) Palin is far more popular with the base than McCain is, and it's the base, the GOP mob, that's showing up for these rallies.

2) Palin may be an ignorant twit, but she's also a hyper-ambitious one -- it's always been about her (including for her various right-wing admirers.

3) The Republican blame game is already underway, with fingers pointing in all directions, and there have been signs of tension between McCain and Palin (and between their respective people) -- Palin may be playing right along.

4) With the election all but lost, Palin is already looking ahead to 2012 -- in fact, she's already running.

Whatever the case, it's all quite amusing. Even McCain's own running mate has pretty much abandoned him.
