Palin, defending Gingrich, goes after Christie
By Matt Katz
“Sometimes if your candidate loses in just one state along this path…you kind of get your panties in a wad and you may say things that you regret later and I think that that’s what Chris Christie did,” Palin said, according to a transcript released ahead of time by the network.
Known for unfavorable interviews that polls show helped to tank the 2008 candidacy of her running mate, John McCain, Palin said Christie showed an inability to deal with the media, and a “lack of self-discipline.”
Palin also revitalized a story from last spring, when Christie took a helicopter to his son’s baseball game. “Some people may say, ‘Well, that sort of embarrassed your party, Chris,'” she said.
Christie’s office had no comment, but he has a press conference scheduled for tomorrow. Don’t touch that dial.
