It was June of 2011 that Palin began her attacks on Mitt Romney. It was January when Palin said she would have voted for Newt Gingrich, the child advocate,
if she lived in South Carolina. It was also January when papa-pimp-Palin endorsed Gingrich. It was February when the Queen of Attack attacked Romney for Attacking Gingrich, who attacked Romney, after saying that he wouldn’t attack. It was March when Sarah Palin voted in the Alaska primary for Newt Gingrich.
It seemed as if Gingrich spent most of his time and money attacking Romney during the short time he was in contention for the nomination. Consider just a few examples:
1. Gingrich attacks Romney as a “tool of Wall Street.”
2. Gingrich Attacks Romney as a “Vulture Capitalist.”
3. Gingrich Attacks Romney’s honesty.
4. Gingrich Attacks Romney over kosher veto.
Now on her appearance on Fox News, Palin gives her ideas about why Romney might not pick her as his Vice Presidential running mate.
Palin has finally answered the question “on no one’s minds: is Mitt Romney considering Sarah Palin for his vice president?” Palin says that Romney won’t pick her because he needs someone who is a “known commodity.” The reason she gives for this decision is that the Romney wouldn’t want the media to “do what the media did to me and making things up and kind of thrashing somebody’s reputation and record in order to distract.”
It is rather amusing that Palin would suggest that she is not a “known commodity.” After the Katie Couric interviews during the campaign,
the fact that she quit her job as Governor,
she was put on the stupid watch
appeared in 8 episodes of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,”
has written two books about herself,
has had multiple books written about her,
appeared on Fox News speaking about everything from Paul Revere to building dikes
would certainly be an indication that the electorate knows more about Sarah Palin than Romney himself.
The really outrageous thing about Palin’s comments is her suggestion that it has been the media “making things up” that explains her low popularity. The best example of Palin’s inappropriate characterization of the media comes from her famous Paul Revere comment when the reporter asked her:
“ What have you seen so far today and what are you going to take away from your visit?”
To that “gotcha question Palin responded:
It’s as if Palin has forgotten her endorsement of Newt Gingrich, and Newt’s attacks on Romney. It’s as if she has forgotten her own attacks on Romney. It’s as if there is not a book available to the entire country documenting the fact that Todd is a pimp,
or that Todd was the one who introduced Sarah’s own Secret Service Agent, David Chaney to his prostitute, Shailey Tripp.
The problem for Sarah Palin is that her audience is not a clueless as she.
