Discrepancy alert

November 4, 2010

CBS News yesterday

Most of the candidates Sarah Palin endorsed chalked up victories Tuesday.


.the former GOP vice presidential nominee backed 43 candidates for the House. Thirty of them won, with races involving nine others still undecided.


Her record in Senate races was closer: She endorsed 12 candidates. Seven won.

Politico this morning

Palin endorsed 34 candidates for the House, only 15 of which won on Tuesday. In Senate races, just five of her 12 pick were victorious.

Just a bit of a difference, one way she is a kingmaker with a large impact on American politics. The other she is a loser who can be easily dismissed. Any guesses on which is correct.

    It Appears to me that Politico has a distaste for Sarah and the Tea Party.

    Making the election into a scorecard is misleading. If you look at three races: Angle, O’Donnell, and Miller. Palin’s endorsement helped them win the primary. But they lost the general election. (Miller hasn’t officially lost yet, but it looks likely.) Would you count that as three wins and three losses? They sure changed the campaign dynamics. The “Palin Effect” has been massive this election cycle. Any honest reporting would concur in that.
    Do I want Palin as President? No! I live in Alaska and know her Chief Executive style, and don’t care for it. But I appreciate her abilities, and hope she uses her considerable skills to help elect the next President.
