Sarah Palin takes shot at Karl Rove
Fox news analyst Sarah Palin took a shot at her quasi-colleague Karl Rove for suggesting that the former vice presidential candidate may make a bid for the White House.
"Any professional pundit claiming to have 'inside information' regarding Governor Palin's personal decision is not only wrong but their comments are specifically intended to mislead the American public," Palin's Sarah PAC website declared.
Rove is not mentioned by name in the post but the Fox News analyst told Fox News Sunday that he thinks odds favor Palin getting in the race.
"I'm not much of a gambler, but I'd put a little bit more money that she gets in than she doesn't," the former strategist for George W. Bush said. Of her upcoming schedule in Iowa, which includes a Tea Party speaking event on September 3, Rove said it "looks like that of a candidate, not a celebrity."
Palin's website statement said "these are the same tired establishment political games that fuel the 24 hour news cycle and that all Americans will hopefully reject in 2012, and this is more of the "politics-as-usual" that Sarah Palin has fought against throughout her career."
