In Fighting In McCain Camp, Or More Political Chicanery

So, less than 24 hours after McCain walks away from Michigan and its voters, the buzz is all about Palin disagreeing with the decision, wanting permission to RUN BACK IN AND SAVE THE DAY! There are only two possibilties...A) Palin does not know her place, and there is a serious riff developing in Camp McCain, or B) This was Camp McCain's plan all along, a way to shake things up, try to use Palin to run in and steal the state away from Obama in an end around run when the Obama Campaign lets their guard down. My guess is the later. This is another feeble attempt at a HAIL MARY PASS late in the forth quarter when he is down by 17 points and time running out. Look for a lot of Camp McCain trick plays and gimmicks in the closing weeks of the campaign...up next, a name Willow's child fund raising lottery?

Palin wants to keep trying in Michigan.

(CNN) – The McCain campaign decided this week that the battleground state of Michigan may be out of reach for the Republican ticket this year — a move that's drawn criticism from one prominent dissenter: VP nominee Sarah Palin.

In an interview with Fox News Friday the Republican vice presidential candidate appeared to be disappointed with the decision and said she still wants to take a stab at wining the state that hasn't voted for a Republican presidential candidate in two decades.

She also said she made her disagreement known to top campaign officials:

"I fired a quick e-mail and said, 'oh, come on! Do we have to call it there?' she said. " Todd and I would [be] happy to get to Michigan and walk through those plants [with] car manufacturers.

"We'd be so happy to get to speak with the people there in Michigan, who are hurting because the economy is hurting," she added. "Whatever we can do and whatever Todd and I can do in realizing what their challenges in that state are, as we can relate to them and connect with them and promise them that we won't let them down in the administration."
