Well, either way, she’s using it to good advantage.
Given the media’s meme that anyone who even brings up the question of Obama’s citizenship (or lack thereof) is a “racist” causing the press to go into full attack-mode against anyone who dares bring it up, I was surprised she gave even a small hat tip to the validity of the question.
Palin is the one person right now who can change public perception of Obama and cause significant damage to his public image. I can’t see her delving headfirst into the birther issue or demand Obama produce his qualifications; Palin is too smart for that. What she did do was enough, she showed how ugly the media bias was against her and how they protected Obama.
