Sara Palin's selection as John McCain's VP running mate is intended to end badly within the next two to three weeks as part of a devious Republican
strategy. The McCain/Republcan strategy never intended for Palin to run the full course of the campaign and most likely not more than two weeks past
the end of the Republican National Convention. As a result of attacks on her and the focus on her family, she will resign in shame and disgust, and
the McCain campaign then intends to real the rewards of the resulting sympathy.
I have been in contact with a source that has previously provided reliable information on several issues. The strategy is outlined below, which is a
combination of informed speculation and quietly-passed information:
(1) The McCain campaign has long ago quietly picked their VP running mate intended to be on the ticket in November.
(2) Palin has been selected as a "trojan horse" target for vocal political firebrands to have a veritable field day.
(3) The strategic response to criticism of Palin is a scripted minimalist retort intended to actually invite more criticism.
(4) Key McCain operatives, posing as intense liberals, will seed blogs and bulletin boards with horrific claims about Palin.
(5) Key McCain operatives, acting as "insider informants", will spill minor tidbits from "inside" the campaign organization to help fuel the
negative Palin speculation.
(6) As the criticism reaches its peak, and a "family secret" is exposed by an intensely savage "liberal blogger", Palin will resign.
(7) After an appropriate period of McCain campaign faux indignation and a "second VP search", their original choice will be revealed.
Among those quietly discussing this rumored strategy, one name continues to emerge as the likely architect, Carl Rove. And, as is typical of the
strategic maneuverings of Rove during campaigns, the intended outcome is multi-facted:
(1) The McCain campaign organization intends to reap significant reward from voters who are showing both sympathy and ager over what has
(2) The Republican party insiders expect this issue to become the tipping point that initiates strict media control over political bloggers.
(3) The McCaign campaign expects this issue to remove examination of familial matters from the news, as there are deep issues in Cindy McCain's
professional life that could harm them.
(4) The backlash of the perception resulting from attacking a "hockey mom", "nice person", and a pregnant 17-year old daughter will forever damage
the Democratic party as it is expected they lack the backbone to do anything but apologize.
