I have to say, it’s nice to see her in the swing of things again. Her previous “I’d vote for Newt” in SC elevated her out of the regular talking-head milieu she was slipping into. Here she once again engages on a directly political level and only as she can. Only Palin can really hit the mark calling someone like Christie a rookie and using the phrase “panties in a wad.” It still is bittersweet, though. I imagined this sort of fun w Palin in the actual debates. In the meantime, I’m hoping GOP is enjoying her fab “cheerleading” skillz 😉

From Fox’s “The Five” with the full intv w Bolling airing at 10pm ET. Click the pic for video from RCP:

“Poor Chris, this is a rookie mistake. He played right into the media’s hands,” Fmr. Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) said about NJ Gov. Chris Christie calling Newt Gingrich an “embarrassment” to the party.

“Sometimes, if your candidate loses in just one step along this path, as was the case when Romney lost to Newt the other night. And of course, Romney is Chris Christie’s guy, well you kind of get your panties in a wad and you may say things that you regret later and I think that is what Chris Christie did,” Palin added

Here’s the full interview with Eric Bolling on “Follow the Money”:

    I watched this full interview and her Hannity interview tonight as well. 1) she seems much more openly to be on Team Newt; 2) she is making it more and more clear that her main intention is to harm the GOP establishment machine, with multiple kicks to the gonads. The full segment on Christie is priceless. She belittles and demeans the helium balloon so badly, he’s got to be shrivelled up in a ball in the corner of his basement right now.

    I wish she was running herself, but this is becoming so much fun to watch her destroy the GOP establishment that I’m almost glad she’s not – at least it’s a lot less stressful. Only Palinistas really understand what’s going on, which makes it that much more sweet. If Newt wins, he will give her major well-deserved credit – and a major role in his administration (already promised).

    Sarah`s analysis on Hannity & Eric Boling`s show were excellent.
    Also I agree with Tammy %100 percent Allen West for VP, nobody else even comes close(although there is alot of non-establishment talent).
    Allen is quick; thoughtfull; very knowledgeable & articulate about history; the Constitution; current World affairs; free market economics; … & unafraid & brilliantly can cut through all the “Liberal” crap. Not to mention his Courage in uniform and great intelligence about the Military. Also I took note about 6 months ago when Newt early mentioned him as a possible running mate. It would be an awesome “Team” with “Us” behind `em!
    I was ( & still am a big Palin admirer,…like a lot of you!). After McCain lost,…I made a Palin 2012 bumper sticker & put it on my truck to pick up my spirits. Found out about Tammy cause Jedidiah kept mentioning her. Got ” The Undefeated” that morning before the letdown. Now maybe I`ll come outta the cave & watch it. I never got down on her, just my spirits weren`t up enough to watch it.
    Newt / West 2012 I guess. Also you`re right Tammy,… Haley Barber has got his thinking all screwed up.

    • So glad to have you on our team:) Yah, it took me a while to watch the undefeated too. But I finally did over the holidays and it really helped put Palin in perspective. It is clear that Palin will continue to fight the good fight, and keep the machine off balance with her well placed/timed remarks.

    Sarah Palin to the right points once again. This is why we still need her. Sarah looks like she is enjoying educating the public on all that goes on with the politics. Eric Bowling was enjoying every minute of the segment. Sarah Palin is a born leader. I’ll take from that.

    Chris Christie is a big blustery bully, and actually a repulsive man in my opinion. He has made condescending and insulting remarks about Gov. Palin on late night TV and other interviews, and now she tweaks him back finally. The big dope deserves it. Christie is just rankled that his man Mitt was embarrassed by Newt in SC and his support apparently made no difference, whereas Gov. Palin just mentions that she’d vote for Gingrich and voila — a swing of 20 or more points in one week and Newt wins in a landslide. He’s just envious in recognition of her much greater influence than his.

    I bet he responds in his usual obnoxious snarky way.

    It’s a big, friendly “FU” to the establishment, courtesy of the ‘Cuda. It gives me an idea of how it must have been to face her on the gym floor. She knows that a well placed, good-natured taunt rattles the over-confident bully. And I add,”FU, Christie, and the (rather large) horse you rode in on! You, sir, are an embarrassment to your mother!”

    Quote attributed (not sure if this is accurate) to Charles Krauthammer: “Are you better off now than you were 4 trillion dollars ago?

    Tammy, you are right about Sarah’s hair, it looks like how my mom use to do mine and I would try to hide!
    Why does Chris Christie and Romney call Newt a disgrace? It’s despicable! Mark Levin said he defended Newt at Landmark Legal Foundation in those years at least 4 times. Remember the minority leader David Bonier was constantly bringing Newt up on phony charges. Why was Newt mute last night? Seems we only have Sarah and Newt who can speak.
