Palin: Christie got his "panties in a wad" after SC [View all]

January 23, 2012 5:51pm

Sarah Palin, in a pre-recorded interview to air on Fox Business Network tonight, says Chris Christie made a "rookie mistake" by calling Newt Gingrich an "embarassment" to the party, adding that the New Jersey governor got his "panties in a wad" when his favored candidate, Mitt Romney, lost the South Carolina primary.

“I do care to take him to task -- poor Chris," Palin said in an interview to air tonight at 10 p.m. eastern time on Fox Business. "This was a rookie mistake. He played right into the media’s hands. Here’s a host that asked Chris, ‘Does Newt embarrass the party.’ I think he asked him twice, and there Chris played right into it and spewed that about Newt embarrassing the party. Sometimes if your candidate loses in just one step along this path, as was the case when Romney lost to Newt the other night and of course, Romney is Chris Christie’s guy, 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."


On if Christie was tricked into calling Gingrich an “embarrassment”:

“I think if Chris were asked about some of his past actions, taking a state helicopter to his kid’s baseball game, some people may say, well, that sort of embarrassed your party, Chris. And he would then be on the receiving end of a comment that maybe he wished that somebody kept as an inside thought and not blasting that to the rest of the nation. He’s been in office a year or two is all, and he’ll learn that the media goad you. They want you to say things like that in order to boost ratings and make it more of a reality show-type scenario that we’re watching in the GOP primary. And a comment like that just kind of played right on into that narrative.”
