• Mitt Romney Hit With Sarah Palin Endorsement

    Sarah PalinThe latest average of national polls gives Barack Obama a .4% lead, while swing state polls from Ohio to Virginia put the president in a strong position to win the electoral college.

    Nevertheless, there was always hope for Mitt Romney. State polls, which Nate Silver alchemizes into a prediction using a magical formula known as "finding the mean," may well be overestimating the Democratic share of the electorate. Others argue that polls tend to overestimate the performance of incumbent presidents.

    But it's hard to see how Mitt Romney recovers from something he has managed to avoid all these months: a Sarah Palin Facebook endorsement…

    "What's past is prologue. We know what we will get from a second Obama term because we've all endured his first term."

    Okay, she has to get some things off her chest before she gets to the Romney endorsement…

    "Do we believe that the same president who increased the debt in his first term by more than all the first 41 presidents combined will suddenly decide to cut the deficit in his second term?"

    I'm sure the endorsement is coming any moment…

    "Do we believe that a president who was caught on a hot mic telling the Russian president that he would have "more flexibility" after his reelection is being honest about his plans for a second term?"

    Any time now…

    "In 2008, Barack Obama promised to fundamentally transform America… He's transformed us from a nation of hope to one of anxiety."

    Um…

    "On Tuesday, please vote for Governor Mitt Romney and the commonsense conservatives running for office in your states."

    After a 1,000 words about Obama, there's the endorsement. At least she made it as unobtrusive as possible for Romney's sake. Though I'm a bit disappointed. After Rick Santorum endorsed Romney in a late night email and so many "celebrities" are endorsing via tweets, I would've hoped for at least an animated GIF of a moose taking a dump on a poor person from Sarah Palin.
