As long as you hate President Obama and don't think that there is an ounce of value in Keynesian economics, then there's plenty of room for you to prosper in today's Republican Party. But according to a new story by Ben Smith and Maggie Haberman, Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin apparently
Rep. Michele Bachmann’s prospective 2012 campaign appears increasingly set on a collision course with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
The coming confrontation is being driven by a belief in Bachmann’s camp that the same grassroots, conservative primary voters and caucus-goers may have to choose between the two women—and that they will choose Bachmann if she presents herself as a more seasoned, reliable, and serious conservative than her high-profile rival. The apparent effort to draw distinctions broke into the open Tuesday when her new top strategist, Ed Rollins, dismissed Palin as “not serious” in a radio interview.
And how does Rollins distinguish Bachmann from Palin?
“People are going to say, ‘I gotta make a choice and go with the intelligent woman who’s every bit as attractive.’”
Wow, with brilliant messaging like that, it's a shock that Republicans still haven't figured out why Barack Obama won the female vote by 13% in 2008.
