GOP Establishment hack Ed Rollins
By Gary P Jackson
Michele Bachmann’s hired GOP establishment attack dog, Ed Rollins, has stirred up a hornet nest among Conservatives and Tea Party members, as the guy has a record of trashing both. It’s still hard to fathom why Bachmann hired someone like this. At any rate, Sarah Palin’s Chief of Staff Michael Glassner talked to POLITCO about the loose cannon:
Sarah Palin’s chief of staff blasted Michele Bachmann strategist Ed Rollins today after Rollins criticized the former Alaska governor and suggested to POLITICO that his candidate would benefit by comparison to her
“Beltway political strategist Ed Rollins has a long, long track record of taking high profile jobs and promptly sticking his foot in his mouth,” said Sarah PAC chief of staff Michael Glassner in an emailed statement. “To no one’s surprise he has done it again, while also fueling a contrived narrative about the presidential race by the mainstream media. One would expect that his woodshed moment is coming and that a retraction will be issued soon.”
A Bachmann aide blew off Rollins’ nastiness by saying he was “working in his role in his media analyst” at the time he spewed his nonsense. Where I come from those are weasel words. Bachmann hired this loser knowing what he was, and it’s doubtful he went on the attack without her approval. Bachmann needs to own this. If she can’t keep this loon on a leash, how does she think she’ll be able to serve in an executive position?
