FLASH: New York Times Says Palin Crosses the Political Divide

In a stunning column today by New York Times writer Anand Giridharadas, several assertions were made suggesting that perhaps at least a few members of the northeastern intelligentsia may be willing to take a second looks at Sarah Palin. The Times asserts that Palin 'crosses the political divide' and draws her views from a variety of sources that could potentially unite seemingly irreconcilable forces within American politics.
Here is how the article begins:

If Sarah Palin can find it in herself to forget the handlers, lose the advisers and just say what's in her heart and on her mind she will become, perhaps, the single greatest figure in American political history.

I know that seems like hyperbole and crazy thinking but I've become convinced, in those rare times when she gets wound up and just let's it flow, that she has the ability to tap into the American ethos in a way that other current political figures seem to find impossible. She gets us, all of us, apart from our political differences. She gets us as Americans, as a family.

We don't need a policy wonk or a business man to lead us back from the collapse that we're in the midst of right now. We need someone that can remind us of what made us great to begin with.

Sarah Palin IS that person.
