Ed Rollins didn’t waste any time in getting down to business for Bachmann:
“Sarah has not been serious over the last couple of years,” Rollins told Brian Kilmeade on his radio show, Kilmeade and Friends. “She got the Vice Presidential thing handed to her, she didn’t go to work in the sense of trying to gain more substance, she gave up her governorship.” – Bachmann strategist blasts Palin: ‘Not serious’
Rollins is always blunt, but I wonder where he’s been the last year. Palin was the one most responsible for helping the Tea Party take back the House, unless you count Pres. Obama’s abysmal Democratic messaging.
Since the midterms, however, Palin has had a very bumpy ride, beginning with her embarrassing video statement after the Loughner shooting tragedy.
While Bachmann was working in Congress, Palin was enjoying herself with personal pursuits, including building her celebrity, her brand and building her fan base, while collecting a salary as talking head on Fox News channel. Nothing wrong with that at all, but it stands in stark contrast to Michele Bachmann’s role in the House, regardless that her politics are as horrendous as Sarah’s, though the one thing she and Palin have in common is they both go out of their way to mangle American history.
While Michele Bachmann is preparing a presidential run, Sarah Palin is joyriding in her big beautiful bus on an all expenses paid by SarahPAC family vacation. So far very few people are paying attention to this, with her fans uninterested where their money is going, but it’s odd people are fine with financing a celebrity politicians private excursions.
I’ll let Lawrence take it from here. He calls Palin’s family vacation “barely legal,” while the “lamestream media” lets it slide.
Rep. Bachmann couldn’t get away with this; she’d be investigated for it.
