Here is your hourly dose of Sarah Palin gossip: rumor has it that the leakers now feverishly promoting the most awful tales of her proud ignorance and white trash spending habits are all former Mitt Romney staffers. A whole truckload of these Romney people were hired by the McCain campaign after their guy bowed out of the primaries, and they spent the rest of the race watching sadly as the yokel and the angry old Panamanian failed to say a single intelligent thing about the economy.
This would kind of suck if your original candidate, the guy you actually liked, could have handled the most pressing political issue of the day about a thousand times better than the actual nominee. But counterbalance your sympathy with the fact that Romney loyalists are by definition fans of the biggest tool invented since the dildo.
Anyhow, recognizing Sarah Palin as Mittens’ most serious adversary in a 2012 presidential run, ex-Romney staffers have now reportedly devoted themselves to quietly talking shit about this lady, all the time. Writes Adam Fogle of The Palmetto Scoop:
FOX News Channel reported Wednesday that some staffers intentionally leaked negative information to the media about Palin in the final hours of the campaign that painted the Alaska governor as naive, incompetent, and needy. And my sources said that all of those leaks came from the Romney faction of the McCain campaign.
…[R]egardless of a McCain win or loss, Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016. And that made her a threat to a possible second run by Romney. You do the math.
This makes us a little sad that Romney didn’t get the nomination this year. His loyal staffers seem like a pack of ruthless little turds, and thus good for quotes, and laffs.
