Skip to comments.What a top aide to Sarah Palin really thinks about Mitt Romney,Bristol Palin,Erick Erickson and more
Posted on 05/23/2011 10:16:48 PM PDT by Bratch
A series of messages forwarded to The Daily Caller show a top aide to former Alaska Gov. and possible presidential candidate Sarah Palin mocking top political figures and even her bosss own daughter, Bristol Palin.
RedState.com founder and CNN contributor Erick Erickson is a total douchebag, wrote Palin speechwriter and domestic policy adviser Rebecca Mansour in a May 22, 2010, message. Greasy dumb ass with a talent for self-promotion. He threw himself in at the Govs SC rally. Self-promotion. (Erickson said South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley invited him to the rally).
Mitt Romney supporters are wacky as hell, Mansour wrote, but usually Romneys presence online is just an AstroTurf brigade.
Would love to tell Mitts lackeys to stop backstabbing my boss anonymously, Mansour wrote.
Then-California Senate candidate Chuck DeVore wants to be the next Hugh Hewitt (or Huckabee). He knows he cant win. He wants to become a personality. Give him a show to go away, Mansour wrote. Palin endorsed Carly Fiorina over DeVore in the GOP primary for the race, angering some conservatives.
Mansour sent these embarrassing and revealing missives as direct messages on Twitter to an online-only acquaintance approximately a year ago. The person who received the messages forwarded them to TheDC.

How can any intelligent person have such intimate conversations with someone they've never met in person? It's mind-boggling.
Except for playing right into the libs hands or set up; this story is meaningless.
Just a bunch of bs true or not.
Whoever told you “just be yourself” couldn’t have given you worse advice.
Well, if true.....it puts to rest the fact that Sarah Palin is most likely running like many of us had been saying since last year, even the day she stepped down from office we knew what was coming and still we got deniers! Lol
I’m not sure why it would leave a mark, why is the DC only releasing some of it? The rest must be more yawn inducing than the others.
Just idle chit chat.
Is she young and part of the whole “twitter-I-am-in-Starbucks-restroom-taking-a-number-2” generation?
Otherwise how could anyone be so stupid as to say such things?
I know the question is a redundancy but one must wonder what drives a person to be so — stupid?
You are a jerk! I am sure you are ugly inside.
Mybe I’m ugly, but not as outright stupid as this moron Rebecca. Can you think of a more ill advised thing to do?
The Romney people have been brutally attacking Sarah for years and now Team Sarah is throwing it back at him.
And that is good.
What exactly did she do that was so stupid?
All she did was defend her boss. And trusted someone. RAM is not stupid she is brilliant, she is too caring.
These ridiculous comments that are now available to the public for one. Ripping Real Conservatives like DeVore with childish remarks? She should be fired immediately. What else is the DC withholding about the inner working of the family? She is on the Megan McCain list in my book now.
Nothing, that is the point. It is a non controversy ginned up the day Frank Bailey’s book comes out by the socalled conservative Daily Caller.
Oh come on. She spoke her mind. You have to admit Rebecca’s comments were refreshing (if true). She is loyal to her boss. If I had an employee who did this I would call her in with face in palms, muttering Rebecca, Rebecca, Rebecca...We all are dreaming of a transparent administration, but keep it toned down for now.
So caring she slams DeVore? Give me a break. And Erickson is a sleaze? He is just an activist getting the word out best he can. He does stupid stuff but this line of attack was totally unwarranted.
Devore would never have won. You try being on a campaign like RAM and see if you can keep everything secret.
