Palin to Christie: Don’t get your panties in a wad over Gingrich’s victory in South Carolina

posted at 7:23 pm on January 23, 2012 by Allahpundit

Obligatory, for many reasons. One: Our resident Palin fans will relish every second. Two: It makes for a sweet undercard to tonight’s main event. Three: It’s part of a longstanding low-grade feud between Christie and Palin that began when he tweaked her on Jimmy Fallon’s show and has continued in fits and starts ever since. If it’s ever going to go from simmering to a full boil, this ought to do it. Four: Palin hitting Christie for playing into the media’s hands perfectly captures the Gingrich/Romney dynamic right now. Despite his own diversions from conservative orthodoxy over the years, Newt has become the de facto “true conservative” in the race partly because he’s running against the Ultimate RINO and partly because he’s good at flaming the bete noires of the base — the media, the GOP establishment, etc. To some extent he’s following the Palin playbook while Romney, as a supposedly electable centrist blue-state governor, is trying to follow Christie’s path to success. Gingrich isn’t as charismatic a populist as Palin, though, and Romney isn’t remotely as charismatic an establishmentarian as Christie. In a way, they’re running a watered-down version of what would have been a much more entertaining (and even nastier) race.

Via Philip Klein, three excerpts from her interview with Eric Bolling that’ll air later this evening on Fox Business. Boldface parts are mine:

On New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie calling Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich an “an embarrassment” to the Republican Party:

“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. 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. His response to what the media was asking him 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?”

On if Christie was tricked into calling Gingrich an “embarrassment”:

“I think if Chris were asked about some of his past actions, taking a state helicopter to his kid’s baseball game, some people may say, well, that sort of embarrassed your party, Chris. And he would then be on the receiving end of a comment that maybe he wished that somebody kept as an inside thought and not blasting that to the rest of the nation. He’s been in office a year or two is all, and he’ll learn that the media goad you. They want you to say things like that in order to boost ratings and make it more of a reality show-type scenario that we’re watching in the GOP primary. And a comment like that just kind of played right on into that narrative.”

On how Democrats will use Christie’s comment against Gingrich:

“He just produced an ad for the Democrats. If Newt is the nominee, he just handed them free this negative PR ad that they’re going to incorporate into their negative scenario against somebody who came out there against HillaryCare back in his day, who came out balancing budgets, working with a Democrat governor, who came out cutting taxes and trying to rein in government growth in order to put the country on the right track back then, and has intentions of doing that today.”

True enough about Christie producing attack-ad fodder for Democrats with that line about Newt but we’re waaaaay down that road already on Romney thanks to Gingrich’s attacks on Bain. As for her point about “reality shows” and playing into the media’s hands, I’m curious to see whether Christie will let that lie or if he’ll get snotty with her in his response. You would think that the last thing Romney needs is for one of his top surrogates to start feuding with a grassroots favorite, but since he seems totally incapable of generating any excitement on the stump himself, maybe he’ll unleash Christie as an attack dog to start scoring points on Newt and his surrogates. That’s if Christie’s willing to do it, of course: The more bridges he burns now, the harder things get for him in 2016 or 2020.

Stay tuned. Click the image to watch.

Meanwhile, in the real world outside of the bubble of red-meat conservatives, New Jersey residents will have another tax cut – 10% in income taxes.

And financed by spending cuts – not by deficit, a la George W. Bush.

Spending and tax cuts? Must be a RINO. True conservatives? People who left their offices in disgrace like Palin and Newt. Because that’s how true conservatives roll: the guys who are most hated by the center and moderates are the true conservatives. Even if they are completely messed up like Newt and Palin.

This just makes me angry. Everything that Palin has said this primary has turned me from liking her to hating her. She is cheerleading for Newt, but will not come out and endorse him. You cannot have it both ways. Man up and pick a freaking candidate.

She forgets to mention all of the false Bain attack ads that Gingrich put out or supported? That would not be used against Romney in the general election? Give me a break. I do not care if you cheerlead for Newt, just do it honestly.

By the way, you cannot say Christie has not spent much time in office when A) He has gotten more done in his time then most sitting governors and B) When you did not finish your term.

Mitt Romney Attacks Capitalism in campaign for Governor!

Just another example of the hypocrisy of Mitt Romney:

In his campaign for Governor of Massachusetts, the Romney campaign attacked the Democratic Lieutenant Governor candidate, venture capitalist Christopher Gabrieli, over the bankruptcy of a retailer that the venture capital firm had invested in:

“Romney spokeswoman Shawn Feddeman said. “In this case, Chris Gabrieli took a Worcester institution and ran it into the ground.”

Gingrich is FDR liberalism. At least half to three quarters of him is anyway, as is clearly revealed by even the most cursory examination of his past pronouncements. Did history start just last month? Was everything in the decade before that erased somehow? How so many can fall for this Jeckle and Hyde, P.T. Barnum, and mainly because he ROARS a lot, especially when he wants to change the subject, is absolutely astounding. I know we can’t all be Sherlock Holmes, but this is even something Inspector Clouseau would have figured out by now, even while being attack by Cato and being shot at by Chief Inspector Dreyfus at the same time.

This is more of an observation O/T, but who is doing Sarah Palin’s hair/makeup/wardobe for her on-air spots? She is a beautiful woman, and they make her look old and outdated. I do not like the poofier hair, that blouse/blazer combo, and I wish she’d get contacts. Ok, you can return to your regularly scheduled politics, I just had to ask that.

When did the one-term (incomplete) former Governor of Alaska—who never ran in any Presidential Primaries—become the great, wise arbiter of presidential political strategy?

I think you are exaggerating his record in NJ big time. I don’t think he’s accomplished much of anything up there thus far. It’s still the same liberal state it’s always been. And you ignore all his heresies against conservativism.

He doesn’t impress me as a candidate…just seems amateur. Like Palin said, he’s too eager to suck up to the liberal media. He’ll dump on any Republican for their favor. He’s insecure.

Quitter Snowbilly tells Butterpants to tone it down.

What could be more comical?

Hey, it appears Mitt people don’t like Palin. Shocker of the century.

Hey, it appears Palin people don’t like Mitt winning general elections. Surprise, surprise.

What are the odds Romney puts Christie on the ticket?

A whole lot less likely after the SC massacre of 2012

Banned posters change names, but their posts still smell like feces.

One thing is for sure….Sarah Palin will never betray the tea party by endorsing Willard

She has already said she could support Romney if he were the nominee. Of course, she told Todd to endorse Newt. So there’s that…
