Michele Bachmann has hired Ed Rollins to run her campaign, and it didn’t take him long in his new role to flow back into the old routine and start in on the Palin criticism:

Michelle Bachmann’s new top consultant, Ed Rollins, began his tenure with scathing criticism of potential Bachmann rival Sarah Palin.

“Sarah has not been serious over the last couple of years,” Rollins told Brian Kilmeade on his radio show, Kilmeade and friends. “She got the Vice Presidential thing handed to her, she didn’t go to work in the sense of trying to gain more substance, she gave up her governorship.”
[...]
Rollins has long been skeptical of Palin, but his new role with Bachmann suggests that criticism will become part of her campaign, though she has publicly praised the former Alaska governor.

I ask if Rollins knows for a fact that Sarah Palin is even going to run, because if he doesn’t, what’s the sense in criticizing someone Bachmann describes as a friend who could potentially be an asset on the campaign trail?

It sounds as if Rollins is fairly certain Palin’s going to enter the fray, but again, if he’s not sure and is just taking instinctive jabs, he’s not serving his client very well right out of the gate.

Update (MM): Flashback 2008…Rollins has a history of running his mouth to the detriment of his clients…What I said back then: “When a campaign guru is garnering more attention for himself than his candidate, it spells trouble.”
