Skip to comments.Former Sarah Palin Colleague Says She Has Multiple Flaws (Palin like Lady Gaga wearing raw meat)
Posted on 12/19/2010 5:06:53 PM PST by kristinn
Nicolle Wallace, a former colleague of Sarah Palin, has become the latest senior Republican publicly to round on the darling of the Tea Party movement, saying that her opponents should avoid criticising her directly and let her expose her own multiple flaws.
"She has very obvious deficiencies that will reveal themselves as the nominating contest gets closer," she told The Daily Telegraph, adding: "Let her shoot her moose or whatever the heck she does on her [television] show, it will all work out."
"What's troubling is she has missed an opportunity to go beyond the platitudes and deepen her knowledge," said Mrs Wallace, who was formerly communications director in the George W Bush administration. "It's incredibly cynical to think you can win an election without having a thoughtful intellectual discussion with the country, thinking you can just scare people into voting for you."
Though she regards Mrs Palin as unsuitable for high office, she recognises that "anything could happen". "What infuriates her detractors is she has got charisma, tons of it, and she really knows how to please, satisfy and animate a crowd ... She is simply riveting, just like Lady Gaga is riveting, you can't look away. She [Mrs Palin] might as well be wearing raw meat."

We all have multiple flaws.
One of us ends up being President.
You call this article “analysis” ?
Nicole Wallace? A “former colleague” of Sarah Palin??
Geez I don’t even support a Palin candidacy and I find the views of this former “colleague” to be neck deep BS.
Nicole Wallace? the same Nicole Wallace of the inept McCain campaign? She is no colleague or friend or acquaintance.....she is nothing more than a hapless “anonymous source” and friend of Katie Couric that was trying to set Sarah Palin up!!!!
Wasn’t Nicole spreading lies about Sarah during the campaign? I remember their names in the same sentence more than once and it was to make Sarah look bad...IIRC.
This is the RINOette who couldn’t wait 10 seconds after the election to go running to the press about how stupid Gov. Palin is. Her and Steve Schultz are the source for most of the anti-Palin stories of early 2009.
So...... in other words, Palin’s multiple flaws can’t even be put into one or a few definitive statements? OK.......
She is no “colleague” of Palin...she was Katie Couric best friend and one of the people in the McCain camp that tried to throw Sarah and Todd under the bus!
Those who've read Palin's book, "Going Rogue", will know what I'm talking about.
FLASHBACK: GOP BACKSTABBING IN 2008
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the "Diva" leak was Nicolle Wallace's husband."
"Go Mitt. Go Mitt."
Late in October 2008, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I'm told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin's people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney's former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
... These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
The more they pick on Sarah the more I think of her as “The One”.
Wallace is an establishment hack. She was also removed from Palin’s inner circle because she could not be trusted.
Another plain Jane RINO jealous of Palin?
Wow! No kidding!
A human being with flaws??
Who wouldda thought?
“Catfight sounds”. Does my “jealousy detect light blink a bit too brightly?”
Sounds like this woman is an epic fail (sorta like our sorry president).
If Palin runs then she’ll run the gauntlet and we’ll see what’s there.
