McCain's verdict on Palin: more trouble than a pitbullThe British ambassador reveals what the defeated presidential candidate really thinks of his running mateComments () Nicholas Watt, Wednesday November 05 2008 13.35 GMT

So now we know what John McCain really thinks of his running mate Sarah Palin – and that's not just because of the awkward body language between them during his concession speech in Phoenix, Arizona.

An exasperated McCain has been telling friends in recent weeks that Palin is even more trouble than a pitbull.

In one joke doing the rounds, the Republican presidential candidate has been asking friends: what is the difference between Sarah Palin and a pitbull? The friendly canine eventually lets go, is the McCain punchline.

McCain's joke is a skit on Palin's most famous line after she was picked as his surprise running mate. Palin delighted the Republican base when she said the only difference between a pitbull and a hockey mom was lipstick.

We owe the new glimpse into the tense McCain/Palin relationship to Sir Nigel Sheinwald, the British ambassador to Washington. Sheinwald recently wrote a lengthy assessment of McCain in a telegram that winged its way across the Atlantic to Whitehall.

The jaws of senior mandarins dropped when they read Sheinwald's account of McCain's thoughts on Palin which the ambassador reportedly picked up from a military friend of McCain's. The telegram was restricted to an even smaller group of people than usual for fear of another embarrassing leak. "We took one look at this and hid it away," one Whitehall source said.

Mandarins wanted to avoid a repeat of last month's embarrassing leak of Sheinwald's private thoughts on Barack Obama. My friend and colleague Ben Brogan reports that Sheinwald will be a nervous man today because those private thoughts got out.

In a memo to Gordon Brown, Sheinwald described Obama as a "decidedly liberal" man who "got diverted by his presidential ambitions".

Senior figures on both sides of the House of Commons are wondering how long Sheinwald can last in Washington because he is unlikely to be able to carry out the great Jonathan Powell instruction that a British ambassador should "get up the arse of the White House and stay there".

Sen. McCain’s biggest mistake was thinking that the American people would accept Gov. Plain as a viable candidate for VP..what was he thinking? I truly feel this had a MAJOR impact on his chance to become President..his age was the other major factor but his selection of Plain was an embarrasment to the intelligence of us all…and those who felt that she WAS qualified, well they can bring it up again in four years…

McCain had several mistakes along the way. His biggest mistake was his discontinuing to be John McCain. He let his advisors (several Karl Rove clones) tell him how to campaign. It backfired…and of course, it led to many of his other mistakes:, fear-mongering, hateful discourse, Sarah Palin.

Hopefully, McCain can rekindle his status as it was before all of this began. That would be the John McCain that we need to continue serving in the senate.
