Elephant Dung #34: Bachmann advisor Ed Rollins says Palin isn't serious

Tracking the GOP Civil War

Politico's Ben Smith:

Michele 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."

It is perhaps a sign of Bachmann's seriousness that she hired Rollins, a long-time Republican operative, and she may just jump in the race herself before too long. 

And, of course, Rollins is right about Palin. She's not serious at all.

But is Bachmann the savior of the GOP? And is she really serious herself with all those crazy conspiracy theories?
