The apparent effort to draw distinctions broke into the open Tuesday when her new top strategist, Ed Rollins, dismissed Palin as “not serious” in a radio interview. Palin hasn’t announced that she’s running–and she may ultimately stick to an unpredictable mix of motorcycle tours across the country and Fox News appearances–but she’s such a big celebrity that she could still overshadow Bachmann, the former anti-abortion activist who rose to national fame in 2008 when she claimed that Democratic members of Congress were “un-American.” [POLITICO]
