Well, the tiff between George W. Bush's campaign architect, Karl Rove, and half-term Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin continues! After Rove this weekend said he thought it looked like Sarah Palin was running for President next year, her team fired back saying (without naming Rove) that "Any professional pundit claiming to have 'inside information' regarding Gov. Palin's personal decision is not only wrong but their comments are specifically intended to mislead the American public." So last night Rove went on Fox News to say "it is a sign of enormous thin skin that if we speculate about [Palin], she gets upset. And I suspect if we didn't speculate about her, she'd be upset and try and find a way to get us to speculate about her." Oh, snap!

"Look," Rove said, "if she doesn't want to be speculated about as a potential presidential candidate, there's an easy way to end the speculation. Simply say, 'I'm not running.'" Which, yeah, that makes sense. And for the record, this is by no means the first time Rove has taken a swing at the former GOP VP candidate. In 2009 he called her plan to step down as governor "a risky strategy," and in 2010 he told the Telegraph he wasn’t sure Palin had the “gravitas” to be president. That dig went on to be something of a lengthy spat between the two and we guess that is not going to be put to rest anytime soon.

Because in case you weren't clear that Rove thinks Palin's skin is thin, he went and brought it back up again, telling Greta Van Susteren, "I would just recommend she might get a slightly thicker skin because if she's got this thin a skin now, when people are saying, Well, I think she might be a candidate, what kind of -- how's she going to react if she does get into the campaign and gets the scrutiny that every presidential candidate does get? I mean, that's not going to be a pretty sight if she's as thin-skinned in the fray as she is on the edges of it."
