Palin Ditches Muzzle

Sarah Palin isn't playing by the McCain campaign's rules any more. It seems that she wants to talk to the press and is tired of being told she can't, so she's just holding press conferences whether she has approval or not. The Times describes a comedic scene in Colorado:

After landing in Colorado Springs late Sunday, Ms. Palin marched over to a local television crew and began answering questions on camera, sending the traveling press corps sprinting in pursuit, and her press staff scrambling.

“Get Tracey,” one campaign aide barked into his headset, calling for Tracey Schmitt, Ms. Palin’s ever-watchful spokeswoman, who rushed over to supervise the impromptu press conference. (Ms. Schmitt, looking distressed, tried several times to cut it off with a terse “Thank you!” in between questions, to no avail.)
This is great news for Barack Obama and another sign of the McCain campaign coming off its wheels. Biden has remained fairly disciplined, although he did go a bit off the reservation the other day, as has much of the Obama campaign. McCain's people? Not so much.
