The White House has... chosen specifically to focus on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, and evidently to make her the face of the opposition, or to respond to her ability to project herself into the debate.

She's playing them like they were on her iPod.
And when did Sarah Palin ever say that we should get rid of Medicare?
