Forgetting Sarah Palin

Actually, the numbers don't support that notion.

I'm going on memory here...always a dangerous thing once one passes 40...but I believe that SUSA had Obama leading by 5 right up until the Republican convention. There was no real movement until the Palin speech, which resulted in a 7 point bump...McCain by 2.

The polling stayed that way until September 15th, when McCain stated that "the fundamentals of our economy are still strong." Subsequent polling showed Obama's numbers steadily climbing after that statement, while McCain's numbers stalled. The thing is, McCain's level of support never actually dipped from its post-Palin speech bump. She delivered. It was rather, McCain's ill-considered remarks on the state of the economy, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, that sent undecided voters to the Obama camp in droves.

It's easy to dismiss her, but I believe that it's a mistake to do so. She's very good on the stump and the Republican base loves her. More importantly, they are willing to open their pocket books for her.

With three years to polish her act, and the prospect of severe economic hardships in our immediate future, we may be seeing her sooner than we'd hope.

kanye does have a point. So I think this should be amended to say:

"Yeah, that was his biggest mistake, because we could have found out about your dumb ass and started ignoring/mocking/reluctantly fantasized about you sooner."
