Et Tu, Sarah?

Now Palin goes for Romney's jugular:

I love it when Palin demands full disclosure from other candidates. The woman who never had an open press conference in her vice-presidential campaign and refused to release medical records, apart from a vague note from her physician hours before the polls opened … is now demanding Mitt's tax returns and proof of a net gain of 100,000 jobs at Bain. Well, no one ever accused her of lacking opportunism. Money quote:

“Governor Romney has claimed to have created 100,000 jobs at Bain, and people are wanting to know: is there proof?” Palin told Sean Hannity on Fox News. Rick Tyler, former Gingrich aide and head of Newt Gingrich’s Super PAC, has already accused Romney of having created those 100,000 jobs in Asia and Mexico. Earlier this week, Big Government pointed out that Romney’s claim to have created 100,000 jobs contrasts with claims he made during his 1994 U.S. Senate campaign, when he claimed to have created 10,000 jobs at Bain. Romney retired from Bain Capital in 1999.

Could this be the one election when economic populism trumps "values" populism? Maybe if Romney becomes the nominee – and a symbol of what so many have come to hate about Wall Street and the very, very rich – history truly will be made.
