Sarah Palin: Tea Party Leader

Cue the tape:

CBS News' Dan Farber:
The Sarah Palin storyline taking shape lately is whether the former Alaska governor, vice presidential candidate and Tea Party icon will run the president in 2012. Every move and word is scrutinized for clues about her future as she travels the country, offering support for Tea Party candidates, castigating President Obama, the GOP hierarchy and the press while raking in millions in her new media career.


The video leaves no doubt as to who is the leader of the Tea Party and the person trying to remake the Republican party as well.
So, Sarah Palin is now the defacto leader of the Tea Party movement.

Given the grass-roots aspect of the Tea Party, I wonder how Ron Paul and his supporters feel about Sarah Palin becoming the new face of the movement...
