THANKS for Attacking Palin for Two Years Straight, Lib Idiots!

Now when people get fed-up with the power-mad "progressive" cabal in charge of this country -as millions rapidly are- and start clamoring for something exactly-the-opposite of the failed Obama agenda... they know just who to look-to for advice:
Sarah Palin had four primary endorsements in play – Carly FiorinaNikki Haley, Terry Branstad and Cecile Bledsoe – and three won or moved on to a runoff. Palin served different roles for each candidate – sometimes spotlighting conservatives not well known to the national scene while at others validating conservative credentials to an unsure grassroots and even stepping in to deflect nasty attacks.

Perhaps Palin’s most powerful demonstration came in South Carolina, where her endorsement propelled a major swing in the polls for Haley’s primary campaign for governor and sustained the state representative through accusations of two separate affairs...

For Fiorina, Palin bucked some of her own supporters in choosing the former Hewlett Packard chief executive over tea party favorite Chuck DeVore in the California Senate race.

After announcing her support for Carly Fiorina, the former governor’s Facebook page was overrun by negative comments trashing Palin’s support of the more moderate candidate with strong establishment ties.

But Palin rebuffed her conservative critics by touting Fiorina’s pro-life credentials as well as her 100 percent NRA rating – thus helping build the conservative grassroots narrative the multimillionaire former businesswoman utilized to dispatch both DeVore and former Rep. Tom Campbell. 

“Governor Palin’s endorsement was integral to the success of our campaign,” Fiorina spokeswoman Julie Soderlund told POLITICO. “She provides the ‘good housekeeping seal of approval’ for conservative, outsider candidates. After earning her endorsement we saw an immediate spike in support for Carly amongst conservatives, who represent the vast majority of Republican primary voters.” 

To the best of my knowledge Sarah Palin's only endorsements that didn't fly were this 1/4 yesterday and Doug Hoffman in NY-23, who almost pulled-off a dramatic upset as a 3rd party candidate.  She must be about 8-2 at this point, and it's not like she didn't rolled the dice on some of them...

And Obama?  He's 0-4
