Karl Rove mocks Palin on television, causing a war of ugly words between two of the most well known faces in the GOP on Sunday. And now, their fight is starting to go viral following Rove’s comments on television.
On Sunday, Karl Rove mocked Sarah Palin’s decision to abandon her job as governor in the state of Alaska. Rove did this as a response to Palin’s jabs at him, in which Palin suggested Rove get out of politics after his favored candidates in the 2012 election failed.
But in a new interview on Fox News, Rove had this to say about Palin:
"I'm a volunteer and I don't take a dime with my work from American Crossroads and pay my own travel expenses out of my own pocket and I thought she was encouraging volunteer grassroots activity and I'm a volunteer," Rove said. "Second of all, 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."
Rove’s frustration over Palin came after Sarah made these comments, which were in direct reference to Karl Rove.
"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 told CPAC Saturday, according to the Huffington Post.
