"Americans totally rejected her values..."
She wasn't running for president. John McCain was.
Since you are unable to respond without insulting anybody who DARES to disagree with you, I will spell it out: Sarah Palin brought some much-needed energy into the McCain campaign.
You are thoroughly wrong when you say he was in the running until he picked Palin. The polls show they were leading slightly right after the convention. When the economy tanked shortly afterwards, that's what doomed their chances.
Sarah Palin's political future is bright. Fact.
So I guess by Damail's logic if not for the energy of Sarah Moosejaw McCain would have lost by 20% instead of the 10% he did lose by. And by the way didn't damail just totally contradict herself with these two statements? She wasn;t running but neither was he until she showed up.
