Palin Aide Criticizes Romney Aide for Attacking Palin Anonymously — But Insists on Anonymity

The irony of this Politico story is hard to miss. Politico is reporting on a dust up between the Palin and Romney camps after an aide for Mitt Romney stated anonymously that Sarah Palin is “not a serious human being.” A Palin aide immediately charged forward to denounce aides speaking anonymously to criticize his boss — the aide of course insisted on anonymity.

The “Romney intimate” was quoted by “Time” magazine’s Mark Halperin in a Thursday column, noting “[i]f she’s standing up there in a debate and the answers are more than 15 seconds long, she’s in trouble.”

The anonymous aide responded “[f]or Washington consultants to sit around and personally disparage the governor anonymously to reporters is unfortunate and counterproductive and frankly immature.”
