Apparently victorious Mike Huckabee's campaign chairman Ed Rollins was eating dinner at Winston's (not the famed hangout in LA) in Iowa with his "blonde" wife and was overheard by reporter Amanda Carpenter who diligently took notes on her laptop about the conversation.  Some of the juicy comments overheard included:

Rollins let the f-bomb fly twice and told his blonde female dining companion a joke about flying the Confederate flag in the South Carolina state capitol.

Rollins called said Fred Thompson was “as disgrace as a candidate. Fred has been a friend a long time, but has never converted a single vote. No one is taking him seriously.”

Rollins made a phone call to Lou Dobbs and said he would ready to have drinks with him after Iowa to talk about Hillary. There also was a reference to Rollins’ recent comments about wanting to knock Romney’s teeth out, as Rollins told Dobbs “they are all porcelain.”

Rollins later went on television to say that the comments were not made for public consumption.  Hmmm...spouting off to your wife in a restaurant sounds like a public place to us.  For his sake, it was a good thing Huckabee won last night.
