Dishing dirt

Moira Bagley dishes up some anti-Palin gossip at David Frum’s New Majority site:

Despite the Republican National Committee’s promise to donate Sarah Palin’s $180,000 campaign wardrobe to charity, word has it the Alaska governor’s clothes remain stuffed in trash bags at RNC headquarters, NewMajority has learned.

Gee, how does Moira Bagley get her tips?

The Kentucky native with porcelain skin came to Washington as a journalist but joined the Republican National Committee (RNC) after realizing “I couldn’t hide my light under a bushel anymore,” she said.
Before becoming an RNC press secretary, Bagley was a copy editor at Roll Call, where she once had a run-in with the IT department for using 80 percent of the office’s Internet bandwidth to watch the National Zoo’s Web cam of its newborn pandas.

Bagley was an RNC press secretary as recently as July. And now she’s dishing anti-Palin gossip for Frum. Got it. Another reminder (in case one was needed) why no conservative should ever write a check to the RNC.
UPDATE: Thanks to commenter JR for calling my attention to the reaction from Red State’s Erick Erickson:

The left within the Republican Party has launched a full scale assault against the conservative base.

Erick lives in Georgia, where Sarah Palin recently helped save Saxby Chambliss’s Senate seat. Whose Senate seat has Moira Bagley saved lately? If the Republican elite wants to start a war with the Republican base, my money is on the base.

UPDATE II: Linked by Kathy Shaidle. Today I found myself having to explain to American Spectator managing editor J.P. Freire that there’s a reason she’s called Five Feet of Fury.
