Sarah Palin's Really Bad Week: Ex-Gov's Tea Party Candidates Go Down in Flames

Sarah Palin really knows how to pick 'em. The former half-term Alaska governor's recent endorsements are a flop at the polls. 

Palin's candidate lost yesterday in Idaho and her pick in South Carolina is embroiled in a sex scandal. 

It wasn't supposed to be this way for Palin, says a political blogger at the Los Angeles Times. Palin was supposed be political gold. But something went wrong with Palin's message and the Tea Party ideolgy along the way. The Times blogger writes:
The tea party activists have undoubtedly brought passion to politics, as has Palin. But national Republicans are starting to worry that a too-conservative message could cost them elections. So it's not uncommon these days to see Palin and the Republican Party on different sides in primary fights.

In a saner world, Palin's endorsement would be exactly as valuable as Zippy The Pinhead's.
