Karl Rove was suddenly cut off an interview with Sarah Palin’s BFF Greta van Susteren Wednesday night when he repeatedly called into question the skin-thinness of the kinda-sorta-maybe-running-but-haven’t-made-up-my-mind-yet former partial term governor of Alaska:
Look, she is all upset about this saying I’m trying to sabotage her in some way. And how dare I speculate on her future. If she doesn’t want to be speculated about as a potential candidate, there’s an easy way to end the speculation. Say, ‘I’m not running. It is a sign of enormous thin skin if we speculate about her, she gets upset. And I suspect, if we didn’t speculate about her she would be upset and try to find a way to get us to speculate about her.
End the speculation by saying, ‘I’m not going to be a candidate.’ Until then, I would recommend she might get a slightly thicker skin. If she has this thin a skin now when people are saying, ‘I think she might be a candidate,’ how is she going to react if she does get into the campaign and gets the scrutiny that every candidate does get?
All of a sudden, FOX cut to ” breaking”news: Steve Jobs was stepping down as Apple CEO, something that had been announced hours earlier. Now who’s thin-skinned?
