Fox News Civil War! Rove Takes A Sharper Shot At Palin

Reported by Ellen - October 28, 2010 -

I recently posted that Karl Rove's less-than-enthusiastic comments about a Palin presidential run in 2012 presaged a Fox News Civil War on the not-too-distant horizon. Now Rove has taken another, sharper shot at Sarah Palin in yesterday's (10/27/10) Daily Telegraph of London, all but flatly stating she lacks the gravitas for the job.

The Telegraph reported that Rove expressed "the strongest public reservations about the conservative star made by any senior Republican figure."

“With all due candour, appearing on your own reality show on the Discovery Channel, I am not certain how that fits in the American calculus of 'that helps me see you in the Oval Office’,” Mr Rove told The Daily Telegraph in an interview.

He added that the promotional clip for Sarah Palin’s Alaska could be especially detrimental to any political campaign. It features the mother of five in the great outdoors saying: “I would rather be doing this than in some stuffy old political office.”


“There are high standards that the American people have for it [the presidency] and they require a certain level of gravitas, and they want to look at the candidate and say 'that candidate is doing things that gives me confidence that they are up to the most demanding job in the world’.”

Clearly, Rove does not have that confidence.

I thought there would be no reason to grab the popcorn until after the election. Maybe not!
