GOP watch: Sarah, smile

Politico's Vogel notes: “A new financial report filed Sunday evening showed Sarah Palin’s political action committee has taken its fundraising to a higher level -- and suggests that she has begun building a more sophisticated political operation in place of a bare-bones organization powered mostly by her rock star status and scrappy on-line presence… In short, for the first time since the 2008 campaign when she was the vice-presidential running mate to GOP presidential candidate John McCain, Palin is supported by a political operation befitting someone considering a presidential run.”

Meanwhile, Palin tweeted a link to a Las Vegas Review Journal editorial criticizing Obama and Reid on the economy along with choice phrasing of hers: "LasVegas RJ editorial recaps Obama lecture 2 Runnin' Rebs. He's got most disconnected, backasswards plan ever imposed on the country we love."
