Posted on 02/22/2011 9:01:08 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Sarah Palin used to pronounce Mitt Romney's name "M-I-L-T."
In one of the many embarrassing anecdotes about the former Alaska governor, former aide Frank Bailey writes in a leaked manuscript that Palin actually argued with some of her staffers about how to correctly pronounce Romney's name.
During her own 2006 campaign for governor, when Romney was chairman of the Republican Governors Association, Bailey writes that Palin didn't seem to know much about the then-Massachusetts governor.
During the campaign for governor, when Romney was in the background of our Republican Governors mess, Sarah didnt even have a clear idea who he was....

I just call him Willard (his real name), Myth or replace the "M" with an "Sh" but I don't consider those mispronounciations.
Mitt...like in catcher’s?
Well, that does it for me. She's clearly not ready for any elected office, or even any paying job.
Because lame-ass stupid stuff like this makes me HATE SARAH PALIN.
Bet she was doing it on purpose ... I would.
She probably thought his name was Milton and Milt was his shortened name.
Not a big deal. He has been called far worse.
“Milt” is also the biological term for the fluid that carries fish sperm to the roe.
That's because he has the power to cloud men's minds so they cannot see him.
Another book telling us how dumb Palin is.
Have the usual FReepers got their advance copy yet?
"Milt", indeed. May Sarah roast in the belly of a giant Slor!
Go Milt Romney. Milt Romney.
MLK for Milt. IAG for Milt.
Milt Romney praises Obama again
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Massachusetts Gov. Milt Romney praised President Obama
at a GOP fundraising dinner Wednesday ..
MILT ROMNEY: "I also think it's important for us to nod to the president when he's right," Romney said....
Romney, who spoke at a dinner for the National Republican Senatorial Committee,
said he's pleased with the president's plans to "finish the job" in Iraq and Afghanistan
-- lines that drew applause from the partisan audience. He also applauded the president
for standing up to the auto industry.
"I hope he continues to be tough ....The former businessman even offered faint praise for
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, saying that after a series of initial missteps,
"I think he's finally getting close to the right answer."
Payback is coming in '12 when all the lib reporters will have to disclose the daily doings of President Palin. Sweet.
But would Sarah know that?;^)
Sure she didn’t mispronounce it Rino?
Pray for America
I remember people mispronounced Palin when she first came on the national scene. They called her Pal-in, instead of Pa-lin
Newsflash pissant to buy all copies of this new tell all book and he will deliver them to all media outlets!!!!!
How about MILK?
such as MILK TOAST ROMNEY.
I think when Romney had the falling out with a WHO Talk show Host Jan Mickelson he permanently ruined his chances in Iowa. A huge amount of conservatives in the state listen to, and respect him (Mickelson). Romney came across as a fool .. It won’t be forgotten ...
p.s. I like Beck, but when he jumped on this story without checking it out, I lost some respect for him.
$10 bucks says she knows how to pronounce Pakistan and corpsman.
Oh yeah, this does it.
Sarah, Sarah, we hardly knew ye.
Imagine pronouncing Willard’s name as “Milt”.
Unforgivable. Or Unforgettable.
Wow. This does it.
I’ll crawl over broken glass to vote for this lady.
This is series and possibly hugh.
Most people in ALaska knows what "MILT" is.. because this is Salmon country.. Average conversation on a stream bed talking about Salmon while fishing for them.. If you catch a male Salmon there are no eggs in them what you have is milt sacs.. Average convo when posed with the question by a newby.. "where are the eggs?"...
“Milt is also the biological term for the fluid that carries fish sperm to the roe.
But would Sarah know that?;^) “
Yes, she would. The moniker she gave Mitt was not a compliment.
And another $10 says she knows how to pronounce Genghis (as in Khan).
Sarah knows a lot more about fish than "Milt"
Jeez. Here we have crucially important events in Wisconsin as regards the future of the Union Communist Movement in America; the Middle East is exploding with radical Islamics sure to ascend to power there; and the nation and states are nearly bankrupt, completely — and people are posting stuff about Sarah Palin dissing Milt
Maybe Mitt changed his name to Milt when he reinvented himself when running for Presient. It would have been easy to mistake “Milt” for someone other than the guy who was the gay agenda-driven, pro-abortion, socialist health care governor of Masachusetts, *Mitt* Romney. lol Bob
So go kvetch on those threads. I’m pointing out the absurdity and jejune inanity of this one.
Palin mispronouncing Romney’s name is not embarrassing for Palin, it’s embarrassin for Romney.
Any of the real dirt will be censored out here.
The OP is on a slippery slope. If this is true, then the other details coming out would also be true. Selective untruthiness?
It must really chafe you to not be able to post anti-Palin crap from liberal blog sites.
