Book: Palin used to mispronounce 'Mitt' (Unintentionally funny)
The Politico ^ | February 22, 2011 | Andy Barr

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 didn’t even have a clear idea who he was....

This is the kind of 'dirt' that's in this so-called "tell-all" book?! Hahahahaha!

I just call him Willard (his real name), Myth or replace the "M" with an "Sh" but I don't consider those mispronounciations.

Well, that does it for me. She's clearly not ready for any elected office, or even any paying job.

Y'see.

Because lame-ass stupid stuff like this makes me HATE SARAH PALIN.

Y'see.

"Milt" is a name, "Mitt" is a baseball glove.

If she was worried about him, she'd know how to pronounce it.

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.

Andy Barr? Who once said:
Andy Barr (paid flack):
"Former Alaska GOP Gov. Sarah Palin declared on Wednesday night that President Barack Obama has proven to be “in over his head.
Though Palin did not fully articulate when the president has demonstrated that he has not been able to handle the job..."


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."

Pollutionco has really had to dig deep in the barrel to be able to find something that will induce the vapors over Sarah Palin. Not a problem.

Payback is coming in '12 when all the lib reporters will have to disclose the daily doings of President Palin. Sweet.

Obviously, anyone who called Mitt "Milt," even when half the country had never heard of him, just isn't presidential material. That's the point of this book, right?

"Milt" instead of "Mitt" will be forever recorded in the annals of a notable word(s) in history, like "Nuts" and "Et tu, Brute".

I remember people mispronounced Palin when she first came on the national scene. They called her Pal-in, instead of Pa-lin

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.

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.

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?"...

Yes, she would. The moniker she gave Mitt was not a compliment.

Pretty funny.

$10 bucks says she knows how to pronounce Pakistan and corpsman.

And another $10 says she knows how to pronounce Genghis (as in Khan).

The book is nothing but a pack of lies. I've seen this tactic before. Make up bogus stories, the MSM picks up the story and viola a new narrative is born....

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

The OP is on a slippery slope. If this is true, then the other details coming out would also be true. Selective untruthiness?
