Palin attacks Politico for 'crap' story, tells anonymous sources to 'man up'

Sarah Palin is pushing back hard on a Politico story reporting that top Republicans wanted to stop her from winning the presidential nomination in 2012. "There is rising expectation among GOP elites that Palin will probably run for president in 2012 and could win the Republican nomination, a prospect many of them regard as a disaster in waiting," the paper reported. "Many of these establishment figures argue in not-for-attribution comments that Palin's nomination would ensure President Barack Obama's reelection."
