Rich: Palin Could Upend Presidency

The White House should quit laughing at Sarah Palin, New York Times columnist Frank Rich writes in his Sunday column, because her message could upend Obama's presidency, even if she never gets near 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The Republicans' "anti-big-government, anti-stimulus, anti-Wall Street, pro-Tea Party" message is a cynical message, Rich says, but a powerful one nonetheless. Palin is the star of that brand at the moment. By focusing on the writing on her hand last week, Rich writes, Washington Democrats may miss the writing on the wall.
