Tony Lee of Breitbart’s Big Journalism posted an article this morning about Republican “adviser,” Ana Navarro:
Republican establishment adviser Ana Navarro has worked for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), No Labels co-chair and failed GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, and is close to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Jeb Bush. Like other advisers to these candidates, Navarro is quickly becoming the “Republican” the mainstream media love to use as their preferred attack dog against conservatives.
On NBC News’ Meet The Press on Sunday, Navarro attacked Rep. Steve King (R-IA), saying to his face that he should “go get himself some therapy for his melon fixation. I think there might be medication for that.”
“I think he’s a mediocre congressman who’s got no legislative record, and the only time he makes national press is when he comes out and says something offensive about the undocumented or Hispanics,” she continued.
Navarro gets upset when conservatives attack establishment Republicans. She seems to believe it is perfectly fine when Republicans attack conservatives but unacceptable when conservatives hold establishment Republicans like her to account.
Navarro is compiling a record of dismissing conservatives–like Cruz and Sarah Palin–that threaten her establishment backers. She has trashed and mocked Palin, accusing her of not being able to appeal to Hispanics. As of December of 2012, though, Palin polled better among Hispanics than Rubio, according to a national poll conducted by Public Policy Polling. And Rubio’s numbers have further plummeted since he became the face of comprehensive immigration reform in the Senate.
Navarro has figured out–like Steve Schmidt, David Frum, and Nicole Wallace before her–that the more she trashes conservatives, the more pats on the head and airtime she receives from the mainstream press.

Lee helpfully linked to Navarro’s derisive comments about Gov. Palin in his article, but if you check out her twitter feed, you’ll see a constant stream of cattiness and eye rolling humble brag flow forth. After you read some tweets, you’ll get the “Biltmore” reference. Navarro and her “advisors-in-arms” are the people Palin, Levin and countless others have warned against. They’re expensive, out of touch leeches who can help bleed dry a campaign. It’s a good assumption that Ana Navarro’s concern isn’t about you, your family or your community. Her concern is getting face time in the green rooms of CNN and Meet the Press and making sure that if a Campaign Rubio or Jeb Bush gets rolling, she’s on that train. She is no friend of ours.
