Koch urges Dems to take Palin seriously

Beware Sarah Palin; she’s no laughing matter, says former New York City Mayor Edward I. Koch.

The veteran Democrat had this to say, in his most recent e-mail, about the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate:

“Those who decry Sarah Palin’s speech before the Tea Party this past weekend and her political ambitions are foolish. She was terrific in both delivery and substance. She gave them what they wanted: red meat. She still scares me to death, but I urge Democrats not to underrate her.”
