Rove: Palin Endorsement 'Not Worth Snot' For Gingrich ^ | Christie at the beach

Posted on 03/07/2012 5:39:17 PM PST by Christie at the beach

Karl Rove mockingly dismissed the value of Sarah and Todd Palin's endorsements on a private conference call today, noting that their backing of Newt Gingrich in Alaska "demonstrated that endorsements don’t mean snot."

These country club Republicans have villified and insulted Sarah Palin beyond all reason. She’s a really smart woman, a beautiful woman, and Rove is, quite simply, pea green jealous of her.

Rove is just pissed that she won’t come out and endorse his butt buddy Romney..I can’t stand Rove and his idiotic whiteboard, I would tell him to his face where he can shove it

You are on the same page. The minute I read the post, I went to check on Rove’s marital history. I suspect that rabid misogyny is at the heart of a major part of the opposition to Sarah Palin. Much of it is coming from homosexual men who have a real problem with women. I was suspecting that Rove was one of them.

Ken Rove and Ken Mehlman were very close. And Romney’s campaign manager/Drudge BFF Matt Rhoades is another Ken Mehlman protegee. The homo stuff in the GOP-e is getting really scary.

Hey, I’m not trying to convince anyone about Palin one way or any way. People will think whatever they want.

One thing I do know: People don’t do what they don’t want to do. And they do do what they do want to do. Palin didn’t want to be governor in Alaska while she still had high name recognition. So she quit. Her choice.

All that’s fine, though I don’t respect her decision. Now she’s just another talking head on Fox News. Her endorsement carries as much weight as Kristen Powers endorsing Obama. Which is to say, not much weight at all to the broad electorate in the same way that Powers endorsing Obama doesn’t matter.

None of this means I despise Palin, it’s quite the opposite. She’s attractive, well spoken, articulate, passionate. All the things you want in a good TV news commentator. She just doesn’t matter that much one way or the other. Whew! Go Newt!!

I only spoke up because someone thought the topic was worthy of a FR thread.

It’s been fun, goodnight all.

You got to be a troll or just a plain palin hater because you didn’t answer to a single thing that i laid out that is solid proof out there on what happen in Alaska. But you sure do interject you “opinion” that Sarah didn’t want to be governor even when we have or 60,000 emails from her time as governor and it shows that she was engaged in the business of being Governor and it shows her reasons...just like I explain on why she decided to step down. Get lost!!!

Ken Mehlman? Is Karl Rove a case of like father, like son? Karl Rove’s father, Louis had informed his wife that he was gay and that he was coming out of the closet and wanted a divorce. Later, Karl’s mother, Reba Louise, drops out of his life, drives “out to the desert north of Reno and filled the car with carbon monoxide, and then left all of her five children a letter saying, don’t blame yourselves for this.” This sad set of events may have set the stage for Rove’s mistrust for women. Perhaps the apple does not fall far from the tree.

I’m not sure what he said makes him an “ahole”. Rove’s prediction will be tested in future primaries. If Newt fails to win, then Sarah’s endorsement won’t have meant that much. If Newt catches fire, then Rove is wrong. Either way, I expect that Sarah’s endorsement, like Pawlenty’s, Jindal’s, Perry’s, and Cain’s won’t amount to much. Voters are making their own minds up this season.

Any argument that begins with "by finishing her term" means you don't know the half of it.

They had a system there in Alaska where just anyone could file an ethics complaint against the Governor with no evidence and the Governor had to answer it.

Several anti-Palin activists (I gather representing oil interests) filed a stream of baseless ethics complaints against her. The cost swelled to unconscionably high levels ~ way beyond her salary range.

That's why she resigned.

So, yes, she's still a player whose opinion counts ~ finishing her term in office showed she knows how to cut losses because that Legislature wasn't going to fix the law.
