A little trouble in Tea Party paradise

Apparently Todd Palin doesn’t like it when folks don’t fall in line behind his wife…

In a Sept. 19 interview with Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace, Miller was asked if Palin was “qualified to be president.” “That’s not my role to comment on those candidates,” Miller replied. That answer did not sit well with Todd Palin, who apparently fired off an email that morning to Miller and Palin advisers Tim Crawford and Thomas Van Flein.

“Hold off on any letter for Joe,” Todd Palin wrote. “Sarah put her ass on the line for Joe and yet he can’t answer a simple question ‘ is Sarah Palin Qualified to be President’. I DON’T KNOW IF SHE IS.

“Joe, please explain how this endorsement stuff works, is it to be completely one sided.

“Sarah spent all morning working on a Face Book post for Joe, she won’t use it, not now.

“Put yourself in her shoe’s Joe for one day.”

  1. Yep, it’s totally unprecendented for political spouses to be overly/irrationally protective of their partners:

    Bill Clinton was an outspoken critic of Obama during the primary race. He said Obama’s opposition to the Iraq war was a “fairy tale” and raised questions about whether the first-term Illinois senator had the experience to lead the country. His remarks angered some black leaders who felt Clinton was dismissing Obama’s historic bid, as when he compared Obama’s win in South Carolina to Jesse Jackson’s victories there in the 1980s.

    Clinton fumed in response that it was Obama’s campaign that “played the race card on me.”

    During one debate Obama snapped at Hillary Clinton, “I can’t tell who I’m running against sometimes.”

    Bill Clinton wasn’t the only spouse on edge over the competition. Obama’s wife, Michelle, said of the former president in an interview with The New Yorker magazine, “I want to rip his eyes out!” before adding, “Kidding!”
