(Newser) – Someone forgot to tell Politico and CNN this is supposed be a month free of Sarah Palin news. They're both reporting that Palin has hired a veteran operative to be her chief of staff, a development Politico reads as "one of the biggest indicators yet" she's serious about a 2012 run. SarahPAC hired Michael Glassner, who worked on the 2008 McCain-Palin campaign and is a longtime adviser to Bob Dole. He'll bring plenty of experience to Palin's operation, which critics say is much needed.
