Palin's Chief of Staff blasts Rollins for criticizing Palin

June 9, 2011 - Washington

Sarah Palin's Chief of Staff Michael Glassner has blasted Michele Bachmann's strategist Ed Rollins for criticizing Palin and saying that Bachmann would benefit by comparison to her in the 2012 US presidential election.

"Beltway political strategist Ed Rollins has a long, long track record of taking high profile jobs and promptly sticking his foot in his mouth. To no one's surprise he has done it again, while also fueling a contrived narrative about the presidential race by the mainstream media. One would expect that his woodshed moment is coming and that a retraction will be issued soon" the Politico quoted Glassner, as saying.

Ed Rollins, had earlier criticized former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for failing to be a "serious" Republican candidate for the 2012 US presidential election.

Rollins, a top aide to Mike Huckabee in 2008, has a history of blunt talk, and his words exposed developing tensions between the Bachmann and Palin camps.
