Seems that's why John McCain lost the election to Barack Obama. And I quote from the Washington Post: "There are fundamental facts...that cannot be denied," McCain said. "When we selected or asked Sarah Palin to be my running mate, it energized our party. We were ahead in the polls, until the stock market crashed. And she still is a formidable force in the Republican Party." (Emphasis added.)
Ooooh. *wipes tear from corner of eye* That's precious. You keep telling yourself that, John.
If you want to read the entire article and enjoy equal parts hilarity and foreboding, go here. And, as I said before, if Sarah Palin is the hope of the GOP, even God-in-their-likeness can't help them!
