Rebecca Mansour, a top aide to Sarah Palin, sent a series of revelatory direct messages on Twitter roughly a year ago that were recently forwarded to The Daily Caller. The inflammatory messages to an online pal show that Palin, whom Mansour calls "BigBoss," was possibly plotting a 2012 presidential run last summer. In one message, Mansour said Palin "took a big risk in endorsing Nikki [Haley for South Carolina governor]. You don't pick a loser in SC. Very important state." After Bristol announced to US Weekly that she was going to marry Levi Johnston, Mansour mocked Palin's daughter's choice in a husband, asking her online friend if he knew "anyone upstanding" that could take his place. Other messages, some which The Daily Caller did not publish, reveal details of the Palin family dynamics.
