    IMO McCain lost simply because he was McCain.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Obama didn't beat McCain, Bush and McCain did.
    JournOlist attacking Palin right out of the gate didn't help either. But honestly, McCain was just not enough to get anyone excited. And then the media all sloppering and worshiping the chosen one, the rock star, blah blah blah and never asking him any tough questions. Republicans didn't stand a chance. Palin was the only thing that gave me even a glimmer of hope that we could beat him.

    you mean the social conservatives? well yes, she's one of them. but you seem to have "social conservatives" mixed up with "nuts".

    the nuts embrace anyone that comes along that they can seize on. unless you want to give Obama credit for the new black panthers?

    her being a brainless nut is not a media image, it is who she is, the media didn't create it, she displayed it when she couldn't open her mouth without demonstrating it. Why do you think the McCain camp was desperate to keep her quiet?
    dude, as a general matter I agree that Palin can't stop talking, but the McCain camp was run by fools.

    Here's some more on how they went about it.
    Read more: When McCain picked Palin, liberal journalists coordinated the best line of attack | The Daily Caller
    Ed Kilgore, managing editor of the Democratic Strategist blog, argued that journalists and others trying to help the Obama campaign should focus on Palin’s beliefs. “The criticism of her really, really needs to be ideological, not just about experience. If we concede she’s a ‘maverick,’ we will have done John McCain an enormous service. And let’s don’t concede the claim that [Hillary Clinton] supporters are likely to be very attracted to her,” Kilgore said.Amidst this debate over how most effectively to destroy Palin’s reputation, reporter Avi Zenilman, who was then writing about the campaign for Politico, chimed in to note that Palin had “openly backed” parts of Obama’s energy plan. In an interview Wednesday, Zenilman said he sent the information as a means of promoting a story he had written for Politico.
    Chris Hayes of the Nation wrote in with words of encouragement, and to ask for more talking points. “Keep the ideas coming! Have to go on TV to talk about this in a few min and need all the help I can get,” Hayes wrote.Suzanne Nossel, chief of operations for Human Rights Watch, added a novel take: “I think it is and can be spun as a profoundly sexist pick. Women should feel umbrage at the idea that their votes can be attracted just by putting a woman, any woman, on the ticket no matter her qualifications or views.”Mother Jones’s Stein loved the idea. “That’s excellent! If enough people – people on this list? – write that the pick is sexist, you’ll have the networks debating it for days. And that negates the SINGLE thing Palin brings to the ticket,” he wrote.Another writer from Mother Jones, Nick Baumann, had this idea: “Say it with me: ‘Classic GOP Tokenism’.”Kilgore wasn’t sold: “I STRONGLY think the immediate task is to challenge the ‘maverick’ bull**** about Palin, which everybody on the tube is echoing. I’ll say it one more time: Palin is a hard-core conservative ideologue in every measurable way

    I really get upset when she sticks up for herself or her family and people say she's just playing the victim card. Or she somehow brought it on herself. Kind of like blaming the victim of a rape instead of the rapist.
    If anyone has been unfairly villified by the media, it's Sarah Palin and her family. And it was all done to protect the one they had already decided was going to be president.

    She made herself look like an idiot on multiple occasions where there wasn't a set up "gotchya." I deplore anyone who faulted her on her decision to have another child and all that, but anyone she had soo many gaffs that it wasn't even funny.

    You just proved my point. She made no more gaffs than the chosen one. In fact one gaff he made, the 57 states, when people were asked on election day who said it, no one knew. The ones who guessed, said it sounded like something Palin would say. When asked who said they could see Russia from their house, everyone said Palin, even though she never said that.
