During Sarah Palin’s speech at CPAC, which was — predictably — little more than a long list of platitudes and one-liners (my favorite was when she read a line about Obama using teleprompters off her teleprompter), Sarah Palin took a shot at Karl Rove for his support of more establishment candidates over the seriously far-right nuts that Palin tends to like.
“If these experts keep losing elections keep raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who should run in this party they should buck up and run or stay in the truck. The architects can head on back to the Lone Star State and put their name on the ballot.”
Rove wasted little time in responding:
“Well, first of all I live in Texas and not Washington. Second of all, look Sarah Plain should be agreeing with this. She didn’t support Todd Aiken and when he said the reprehensible things he said. she said he ought to get out of the race,” said Rove…
“I appreciate her encouragement that I ought to go home to Texas and run for office. I would be enthused if I ran for office to have her support but I don’t think, I’m a particularly good candidate, a balding fat guy. Second of all, if I did run for office and win I would serve out my term and I wouldn’t leave office midterm,” said Rove.
Oh no he didn’t!
