Sarah Palin Washington, Feb 10 (ANI): Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has taken a swipe at Republican Party member Rick Santorum by saying that she will leave it to his wife to label him a “knuckle-dragging Neanderthal”.

Palin, 46, took offence after Santorum, 52, suggested that she’s not attending CPAC because she’s out making money and taking care of her kids.

“Just because I’m a mom that does not mean that I didn’t want to be there,” the Politico quoted Palin as saying in an interview with Fox News, referring to the gathering of conservatives in Washington.

“I’m the proud mother of five. My kids don’t hold me back from attending a conference,” she stated.

Palin said Santorum, who is likely to run for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, might be “uninformed” as to why she can’t attend the conference.

“I will not call him the knuckle-dragging Neanderthal. I’ll let his wife call him that instead,” she added. (ANI)
