It wasn't a dig. I heard the quote.

Since when has FR become a feminist website - taking offense at a compliment to a woman's beauty?

... and come to the conclusion that it was a jab at Palin.

It was a jab at Palin, there is no way to spin it as anything else.

Romney, you were not nominated because your are essentially a lib. (What else could one be as gov of one of the most idiotic states in the union?) Pay no attention to the counter to this argument, that the nominee was even more a lib...albeit much more clumsy in front of a microphone.

So, just become a dhimmi and please, please take McKennedy with you.

Trix and the D party are for kids. Leave conservatism to the adults.

I'm not a Romney-hater, he was my third choice after Hunter and Thompson, but as I say this strikes me as tone-deaf.

The jist of the rest of the article is that the GOP swells are trying to ignore Palin, they don't get that it is the GOP rank and file that loves her.

“She’s bigger in the media than in reality,” commented GOP consultant Mike Murphy, a longtime adviser to John McCain.

No, the media hates her as much as apparently the GOP bigshots do. Its the ordinary folk who love her.

Since people are trying to eliminate Mitt to improve Sarah’s chances.

I would safely conclude that the fat red faced Rushbo is out of the beauty consideration, so his answer had to apply to the Saracuda.

I suggest Romney is a jerk, not influential.

I agree with him. She is only influential with the voters and the GOP doesn’t seem to have a lot them.

What exactly did he say wrong? I think you fellas should be slamming the maker of the list. Certainly, there are more in quantity who should be on that list than Palin and Limbaugh. Don’t ya think?

The only ones spinning are those attempting to spin it as being against Palin.

I don’t like the guy, I wouldn’t vote for him, but I’ve heard him say enough nice things about Sarah that it would be a stretch to think this was a jab at her.

Was it also a jab at how beautiful Limbaugh is?

Romney was a total loser as governor of mASSachusetts. He did absolutely nothing to build the party - and barely anything to hold the state together - he laid the ground work for Obama-clone Devalue ‘Cadillac’ Patrick - whose doing an outstanding job in giving what his supporters deserve - a bankrupt state!

I, for one, totally agree with you.

When asked to comment about so few Republicans on the “most influential” list, Rommey simply said he wished there were more. He then went on to say that he(Romney)would understand so few Republicans being on a “most beautiful” list because, “...we’re not very cute”.

That’s bashing Palin? Someone over at Newsmax is more hypervigilant than I when it comes to sniffing out criticism of the divine Sarah.

“It wasn’t a dig. I heard the quote.”

I think he was trying to say that she did not belong on the “influential” list, but being on the “beautiful” list was more her style.

It sure sounded like a dig to me.

Hypervigilant—more like hyper-anti-Romney. They just took HuffingtonPost’s spin on this and ran with it. That’s how unoriginal they are. Everyone buying into this spin is buying into leftwing blogger attepts to sow discord.

“But was that the issue on the most beautiful people or the most influential people?”

That's more or less the same position I'm in now.

This group seems to be disturbingly out of touch with their base.

You have been at FR long enough to know how Mitt is despised around here and was before Governor Palin was chosen as vice presidential candidate.

I would be a little more careful with the crap. You seem to forgot that Romney captured millions of voters. Alienating these voters is really stupid and shows your ignorance. Romney will not run, but we need voters that are not told they were stupid.

One of these candidates has a wonderful, sincere, reciprocal relationship with the NRA, one of them only has one son to offer to military service, only one of them actually owns a gun (regardless of one of them lying about it until forced to confess) and one of them is a life time hunter (again, regardless of one of them lying about it until forced to confess) Only one of these candidates seems to have emerged from a metro sexual pod colony.
