Ed Rollins: I Absolutely Forbid Any Palin Supporters From Consideration of Supporting My Client, Michelle Bachmann

And he's calling Palin stupid!

A guy working for someone running for President, someone with a Palin-esque profile, someone who will definitely want a big chunk of those Palin-votes when/if Palin announces she's not running.

Not only did he imply Palin was not "the intelligent woman," not only did he then go one to opine Palin's not been "serious for years," but, when told to STFU by people who have more sense remaining in their skulls, he actually doubles-down, pridefully, on outrageous stupid.

Of Team Palin’s call for a retraction, he said, “What’s the retraction? I say she’s serious?”

Another Bachmann aide calls Palin "unstable," so who knows, maybe this is a scripted, approved play. In which case Bachmann shares in the stupid.

I don't think so, though. What I think is that many insider-y players have had hard feelings for Palin for a long, long time. I think they've had these opinions for a long, long time. I think they previously publicly counterfeited these beliefs for a long, long time.

I think now that they have people actually caring what the hell their opinion is on something, for a change, just because they got hired to manage things for a more important player, they just can't help themselves in unloading on Palin.

And I think they are using the excuse that they are working for someone else as a license to make what are personal blogger-level statements, rather than acting like professionals in the game to win it.

Hey, Ed Rollins? If you want to pipe up with the emotional restraint of a menstrual 15-year-old girl about every snit you're feeling coming on, let me suggest you peruse

And keep your campaign clean of such excitable utterances. What is this, a bid for the coveted Andrew Sullivan endorsement?

This is horrifically stupid. I am not on Team Palin but if I were part of someone's campaign I would not be deliberately alienating Palin supporters, who already are alienated and feel betrayed by a party which increasingly refuses to take their preferred candidate seriously.

I think this is read not just as a snub of Palin, which would be one thing, but as a snub of Palin supporters -- primary voters -- on a personal level, a rejection of them and their own values, which is, of course, intensely personal.

And Rollins, and this other unnamed aide, just told them all they could go to hell and he didn't have any regard whatsoever for their beliefs or opinions.

Rollins will be fired by the end of next week.
