Haley shrugs

Haley Barbour is a shrewd operator, so when some anonymous Republican governors dissed Sarah Palin for sucking up all the media oxygen in Miami yesterday, the Mississipian didn’t join in:

In an interview with CNN, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour shrugged off that suggestion.
“That’s just somebody running down a rabbit trail. There’s plenty of oxygen here,” he said.

Don’t let his downhome demeanor deceive you, folks. Barbour is super-smart — too smart to badmouth Palin, who is the darling of the GOP base. Is Haley pro-Palin? Who knows? But Haley is definitely pro-Haley, and if Palinmania grows into a tsunami, he’s going to be riding that wave.
