Rove mocks Palin as he fired back at her comments about him at this year's CPAC. On March 17, Huffington Post reported that Palin took aim at Rove, calling him out for his "expertise" but never running for office. Rove took the opportunity to blast Sarah Palin right back, harping on the fact that she didn't complete her term as governor of Alaska.
"If these experts who keep losing elections and keep getting rehired and getting millions -- if they feel that strong about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck-up or stay in the truck," Palin said.
Rove mocks Palin by saying, "Look, I appreciate encouragement I ought to go home to Texas and run for office and, it would be news if I did to have her support. But I don't think I'm a good candidate -- a kind of balding, fat guy. And second, if I did run for office and win, I would serve out my term and I wouldn't leave office midterm." This was sort of a backhanded jab, but Rove made sure that he got it in there.
While Karl Rove and Sarah Palin "play for the same team" so to speak, Palin wasted no time calling out Rove and speaking her mind about his opinions. Could this be because his new strategy is meant to "undermine hardline conservatives"? It is possible. Palin certainly doesn't want a moderate GOP, but Rove has been accused of wanting the party to go that way.
The way Rove mocks Palin isn't so much insulting as it is comical to many people. Who do you think made a better point, Sarah Palin or Karl Rove?
