Some Republican leaders prefer not to discuss Sarah Palin - Jonathan Martin - POLITICO.com
In the latest instance of a high-profile GOP member taking a passing swipe at the party's 2008 vice presidential candidate, former Massachusetts governor and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney jokingly dismissed Sarah Palin’s inclusion on Time’s list of influential people in an interview broadcast Sunday.
He asked, was “the issue on the most beautiful people or the most influential people?”
You know, Mitt, we were on your side around here, but snide little prickish comments like this don't endear you to those of us who gave you a pass on your sudden Come to Jesus on social conservatism.
Newsflash, Mitt... There are a lot of social conservatives who held their nose when they endorsed you. For most of us it was because your convenient conversion seemed a little... Well... Convenient. For more than a few, however, the holy underwear was almost a deal breaker.
Anyway, what I'm getting at is that while we might agree with you... Now... We don't entirely trust you so making a condescending and, yes, sexist about our girl Sarah probably isn't the brightest thing to do. And your selling point has always been that you were the brightest guy in the room. Better start showing it, Mitt.
