GOP food fight: Sarah Palin slams Chris Christie for getting his “panties in a wad” over Gingrich
SFGate: Politics Blog ^ | 1/23/12 | Carla Marinucci, Chronicle Political Writer

Posted on 01/23/2012 4:34:29 PM PST by SmithL

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin threw a roundhouse at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie Monday, calling his recent criticism of Newt Gingrich a “rookie mistake” — and saying he got his “panties in a wad” and “spewed” all over the former House Speaker.

We kid you not.

Palin made the outrageous comments on the Fox Business Network in an exclusive interview that airs tonight at 7 p.m. PST. Launching into Christie’s recent remarks that the former House Speaker was becoming an “embarrassment” to the GOP, she added: “I do care to take him to task — poor Chris. This was a rookie mistake. He played right into the media’s hands.”

“Here’s a host that asked Chris, ‘Does Newt embarrass the party.’ I think he asked him twice, and there Chris played right into it and spewed that about Newt embarrassing the party,” she fumed. “Sometimes if your candidate loses in just one step along this path, as was the case when Romney lost to Newt the other night and of course, Romney is Chris Christie’s guy, you kind of get your panties in a wad and you may say things that you regret later. And I think that that’s what Chris Christie did.”

Even wilder: Palin said that Christie’s remark “was reflective of a lack of self-discipline.”

“I’ve learned my lessons all along the way, too, and not responding, not playing into the media’s hands when they’re trying to get you to say something like is this candidate an embarrassment to your party?”

If there’s one consolation for the GOP here as the former vice presidential candidate levels a guy who is considered by many to be one of the strongest future GOP presidential candidates on the bench — well, maybe it’s that Palin finally says “no”

Nothing ‘outrageous’ or ‘wild’ about what Palin said, Christie’s comments clearly were unproductive for his candidate and for his future political prospects. But I guess thats how the media would perceive anything they disagree with.

Seems Carla Marinutzy has HER panties in a wad, and I, of course, won't be giving any hits to SF Gate to read her leftist drivel.

Sarah is much more interesting.

Outrageous??? Well, I guess if you're a RINO Mittbot, or a member of the state-controlled media who wants Myth as the Republican sacrificial lamb, then OK.

The Republicans (AKA The Stupid Party) continue to ‘eat their own’.

Putting it in perspective...when Christy said Newt was "embarassing the party", he was referring directly to the RINO arm of the party, the elite, establishment, Rockefeller Republicans...not the people. The people aren't embarrased at all, in fact, they gave Newt the longest standing ovation in history for a political debate.

Christy needs to concentrate on Lean Cusine, and quit trying to elbow his way into the GOP "management".

ROFL! Who knew a condescending blog post from a San Fran-liberal-hack-Obama-sycophant could make me fall in love with Sarah all over again ;0)

BTW, the mental picture of Fatso Christie with his "panties in a wad" is at the same time hysterically funny AND incredibly disturbing.

Christie just appointed DIVERSITY
candidates to the New Jersey supreme court.

Christie is another one of those northeast coast moderates. Besides that he needs to loose weight.

It’s hard to believe someone as smart as Ann Coulter actually wanted Christie to be her president.

Panties was the right call. I think Christie looks and sounds gay. Just an opinion.

Oh, look - another member of the “Shrews With Adam’s Apples” club, just like Ann Coulter. MORE than a coincidence?

Ann has lost her mind. Suppose we elect Romney (which cannot happen by the way... imagine Obama, sly smile, looks at the Mittless wonder in the first debate, and ... “Gee, Mitt, I got the idea from you, and now you tell me that we’ve F’ed up the country?), then what? Romney proposes a newer better way to run the ABC depts? I have my tagline for good reason. Christie is a backstabber, a putz, and a RINO. Palin sniffed him out long ago. Good girl griz.
