Sarah Palin Despises Newt Gingrich (If they're trying to make me like her more, it's working!)
New York Magazine ^ | February 22, 2011

Posted on 02/22/2011 9:22:31 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

There are a lot of interesting tidbits to be found in the tell-all penned by Frank Bailey, an aide to Sarah Palin while she was governor of Alaska, which draws on Bailey's firsthand experiences and Palin's own e-mails. Much of it confirms what we already know about Palin — namely, that she's obsessed with her portrayal in the media, with gossip about her family, and with slights from her enemies. But of all the book's revelations, one that might actually be relevant/entertaining going forward, if Palin runs for president, is the nasty e-mail she wrote about Newt Gingrich.

Here's what Palin sent to her "team" after her scheduled appearance speaking about Gingrich at a fund-raising event was canceled:

“Yes, (Newt/GOP) are egotistical, narrow minded machine goons… but all the more reason God protected me from getting up on stage in front of 5000 political and media ‘elites’ to praise him, then it be shown across the nation.” Palin wrote in the e-mail.

“At some point Newt would have shown his true colors anyway and we would have been devastated having known we’d earlier prostituted ourselves up in front of the country introducing him and acting like that good ol’ rich white guy is the savior of the party,” she continued.

Yeesh. Can't wait for the next time those two try to pretend to like each other. Also, Good ol' rich white guy? In private, Sarah Palin kind of sounds like Markos Moulitsas.

Any idea why she'd feel that way?

Although Newt has a good mind, the way he treated some of the women in his past may also have something to do with Gov. Sarah’s opinion....

i suspect that has a big part in it. Sarah Palin has seen guys like Newt before, and no doubt can spot them a mile away, like most upright women.

Oh pleeeeze! His good mind led him to align himself with Pelosi and the other libs? Of course, his flip flops will seep into his personal life but who gives a flip about that.

‘Obsessed with her portray in the media, gossip about her family...’

After years of the most vicious, crazed, lunatic attacks on herself and her children and her husband, nuisance lawsuits, slanderous and lying e-mail attacks, photoshops, talk-show hosts openly declaring they are going to ‘go after’ her daughter Piper, nutcases moving in next door to spy on her, most if not all perpetuated by the homosexual organizations, who would not be concerned? They use the word obsessed of course.

I have often thought that the insane attacks on Palin are a sort of warning device; ‘See we can destroy whomever we choose, so YOU had better keep your head low and if you disagree, just murmur quietly’.

A sort of ‘see our power’ thing.

So God personally canceled the event to protect her from herself? That's very obliging of Him.

Another week, another hit campaign against Sarah Palin. This one accompanies the launch of (another) tell-all book, written by a former "aide", as assisted by two co-authors. Here is what people need to know about them:

The author, Frank Bailey has been described as "“the quintessential disgruntled employee” who had been denied senior jobs he sought, was cut out of Palin’s vice presidential campaign, and was caught up in the “Troopergate” scandal. That's an unimpeachable source for you.

As for Bailey's co-authors: Jeanne Devon is the publisher of an obsessively anti-Palin website (Mudflats), and is a hardcore Leftist blogger who writes for both the Nation and the Huffington Post

Ken Morris is a truly vicious Palin critic, as perhaps befits a former silver-spoon investment bank scumbag, who now use his blog to champion left-wing Progressive causes.

As I have alluded before: I am certainly not the world's biggest Sarah Palin fan, but she, her family, and the American public deserve better than this sort of garbage.

Newt Gingrich is no better than any Democrat these days. He has become part of the establishment no longer concerned about regular Americans.





"Gingrich, you should know, has been on a summer road trip with police-bashing, violence-inciting, race charlatan Al Sharpton and Obama Education Secretary Arne Duncan"

Sarah Palin kind of sounds like Markos Moulitsas. Also sounds like him(?) when she’s praising USCode Title IX, the women’s college sports affirmative action clause, or when she’s calling former Senator Santorum a knuckle-dragging Neanderthal. If that what she thinks of Santorum, does she also see herself as a fish-clubbing Cro-Magnon?

Not just that. When he actually did fight against the establishment, he epically failed (as they say on the interwebs). Sticking by him would be like defending Custer. Forget him; he’s dead to us.

When is the last time anything written by any media outlet with the words New York in the title meant anything. Just another shallow attempt to drive a wedge in to what might be the most powerful, truly conservative GOP ticket out there at the moment.

The problem with Newt Gingrich, for me, is that he is an elitist. He’s very intelligent, but he keeps trying to rub our noses in the fact that he thinks he’s smarter than the rest of us and Sarah Palin, too.

There is NO WAY Sarah Palin wrote that. She doesn't think like that.

Well, Newt turned bad during the clinton years even before he left congress over his marital shennanigans.

Sarah has a good instinct for these guys. (Or gals, in the case of Lisa Murkowski.)

I remember trying to persuade fellow Freepers way back when that Newt was betraying everything he said he stood for, but many refused to believe it. I think when he stood up more recently and passionately argued for Dede Scozzafava against her Conservative opponent, most Freepers were finally convinced.

But the leftist media will continue to pretend that he is a conservative icon—kind of like McCain’s “Republican” daughter.

Well, seeing that she was a student athlete and likely benefited from Title IX, that might just be why she praised it. Not necessarily an Ideological statement so much as a practical reality...

And she DIDN’T call Santorum a “knuckle-dragging Neanderthal.” She said she’d let his WIFE do that :-)

If this nitwit was talking about some progressive, the candidate/politician would be “managing his image” and “protecting his family’t privacy”. My loathing of the left increases dramatically every day.

What??? Newt left Congress(right after winning reelection in his home congressional district)because the Republican caucus voted him out of the Speaker of the House position. He could have had just about any committee chair, but if he couldn't be Speaker, he wasn't going to do anything for our Country. I cringe every time I read or hear anything about him thinking about running for President.

Re-engage the intellect, please. Palin’s description of Santorum seems, to most, to imply that he’s paleo-conservative, a political caveman, a far-right winger. Yet you see Santorum as a lying leftist expletive, a Steele-ish, moderate near-traitor. Can’t be both? Is Sarah wrong? Is Sarah such a lib-lover that the man you portray as a leftist still looks like a hyper-conservative caveman to her? Or did you get it wrong?

El confuso.

So, where’s the downside in that? He was my Congressman and I wouldn’t give him the time of a day. He’s an unethical, immoral cad. Whatever foresight and vision he had at being a Whip to forge Republicans into a winning force in 1992 was lost by the urge in his pants to violate vows he made to his wife, his constituency and to this country. He’s lower than the low. I discount everything he says.

Palin’s description of Santrum was in response to him insinuating that she didn't attend CPAC because she has “all those children” and could make more money elsewhere.

Nothing in her comments insinuated he was a far right winger, unless you associate conservatism with the “barefoot and pregnant” contingent.

Do you?

Ok... here it is... both michael steele and santorum subbed for Bill Bennett's Morning in America radio show... this was after obama won and steele was actively running for rnc chair. Both said, “The era of Reagan is over. The party must move more in the direction of the electorate. We must offer a bigger tent... we must embrace more diversity”. steele agreed and stated that, “America has become a more liberal country and we must change to stay in step with the people”... santorum agreed. There were many more days and different subjects where both men shown their true liberal leanings... but this example I give to you is enough to make any Conservative turn his back on those that believe this crap. I was argued with about steele when I brought this up two years ago... I was right about him then and I am right about santorum now. Ask Sarah what she meant... she is not part of the point that I was making... santorum is a liar and hides who and what he truly is... he stood with snarlin’ arlen... he is by definition... a freaking dim who lies about being a conservative... and he is bad medicine.

I would have given some attention to this had she said she dispises John McCain.

Her union with McCain is going to bring her down if she tries to run for president.
