Yes -Palin was a significant contribution to McCain’s electoral failure. Trotting her out to speak is a huge benefit to the Democrats as well as to Liberals, because next to her anyone seems reasonable and rational.
Bill O’Reilly: Why do Liberals hate you?
Sarah Palin: They hate me for my message, Bill, the one that is all common-sense solutions for decent Americans instead of that way-out stuff the Liberals are always shoving down our throats. If big government with their big debts would just stop trampling on the rights of big business and let the free market hand move things around plus stop taxing the rich people who make us all the jobs that would be a real benefit and a help and make everything better according to God’s plan as it says in the Bible the Founders relied on then lions will lie down with lambs and that would really help out in these times where jobs are scarce ‘cause more lambs would mean more lamb chops on more American tables and then we would be just a whole bunch safer with those lions just lying there they could be shot and done away with easy like you wouldn’t even need helicopters like we have to use on the dangerous wolves up there in Alaska where I’m from and the people, and the state, up there they are really something there, Bill.
Her latest behavior is straight out of a sitcom - a Liberal Journalist with 40 years of experience in writing moves next door to her. Many people did not really appreciate how strange and, frankly, immature Palin was until they read her facebook post about it. Palin informs her readers that McGinniss is "overlooking my children’s play area" and "overlooking Piper’s bedroom." Alternately sounding angry and mocking, she refers to "the family’s swimming hole," which at first reference sounds like she's accusing McGinniss of checking out the Palins in their bathing suits, until you realize the family's "swimming hole" is Lake Lucille. And she posts a photo of the space McGinniss is renting, captioning it, "Can I call you Joe?". The whole thing has resulted in McGinnis getting more material in a week than he could get in a year and it is certainly rebounding on Palin as she shows herself less as a fighter and more as a rather pathetic bully.
