ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico (CNN) -- With 10 days until Election Day, long-brewing tensions between GOP vice presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin and key aides to Sen. John McCain have become so intense, they are spilling out in public, sources say.
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin speaks at a rally in Sioux City, Iowa, on Saturday.
Several McCain advisers have suggested to CNN that they have become increasingly frustrated with what one aide described as Palin "going rogue."
A Palin associate, however, said the candidate is simply trying to "bust free" of what she believes was a damaging and mismanaged roll-out.
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.
A second McCain source says she appears to be looking out for herself more than the McCain campaign.
"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.
Now then, they created a monster and are somehow classically surprised that it has turned on them.
You dumb sonsabitches.
The more I see and hear about this lady, the more I hope that the investigations into her past actions as an egomaniacal government official turn up enough evidence of wrong doing to squash her political career like a fucking cockroach.
I DO NOT want to see this woman again in 2010 or 2012.
She needs to be repudiated and banished to the history books as an asterisk.
Power hungry and power mad, she is the female version of Rasputin.
Throw her ass back to the frozen tundra and God help the local carnivors.
All emphasis above is mine.
