The Dog that Isn't Barking

It's time to ask the obvious question: "Why isn't John McCain speaking out in defense of Sarah Palin?"

Could it be that he supports the people who are sliming her? And if so, why? I suspect that there was a lot of tension between the McCain and Palin camps during the campaign and that Sarah, recognizing that her handlers were hurting her interests, refused to go along. But, hey, that's what you get when you pick a "maverick". They aren't good at following orders.

In a sense it is delicious to see McCain once again hoist on his own petard. After a long career of subverting the leadership of his own party, he has no right to expect people to follow his direction.
