Who's in Control of McCain's Campaign? And Can He Rein in Loose Cannon-Off Message Palin?

Saw this article by Roger Simon this morning.

Sarah Palin, once seen as a huge plus to the ticket, is now increasingly emerging as a liability.

Forget that an independent legislative panel found Friday that she had abused her power and violated ethics laws as governor of Alaska. Forget that with the possibility of Palin being a heartbeat away from the presidency, McCain gives up the argument that his ticket represents experience and a steady hand on the tiller.

The real problem for McCain is that Palin is running a separate — and scary — campaign that does not seem to be under anybody’s control.

I've been wondering that also-begging McCain to please bring up this or that, saying that he ought to stay in Michigan, having different positions than the McCain position. It's one thing if you're on a ticket to have different opinions, everyone does, as long as you express them privately. Talking about them in public sort of *fronts* out McCain and challenges him, yes?  Plus, as Simon points out, if the way to win an election is to try to get MORE people on your side, Palin's smears limit that effect.
