Times Watch Quotes of Note - Sarah Palin Fans Racist or Something

Read the latest edition of Times Watch Quotes of Note here, including this discerning description of Sarah Palin fans from easily excitable columnist Frank Rich:

The affect is emotional - the angry air of grievance that emerged first at her campaign rallies in 2008, with their shrieked threats to Obama, and that has since resurfaced in the Hitler-fixated 'tea party' movement (which she endorses in her book)....Palin is at the red-hot center of age-old American resentments that have boiled up both from the ascent of our first black president and from the intractability of the Great Recession for those Americans who haven't benefited from bailouts.
