Yeah, you anonymous McCain staffers. Sarah Palin is why your guy lost. Uh-huh.
Of course we believe you. It follows a well-established history.
Clearly, Americans were itching to sign on to for the hard-minded, resolute decisiveness of John Kerry and the concept of the “global test”, but in the end they decided they couldn’t abide John Edwards.
Clearly, Joe Lieberman was what held back the vibrant, down-to-earth and soulful Al Gore, particularly in Florida.
Clearly, Jack Kemp impeded the creative, fresh, and dynamic Bob Dole campaign in 1996.
But for Dan Quayle, George H.W. Bush would have won a second term in 1992; the elder Bush had both Clinton and Perot on the ropes throughout that campaign until the potato gaffe.
And clearly, Lloyd Bentsen loused up the otherwise sure-fire victory of Michael Dukakis; if only his debate performance had been stronger.
And Joe Biden was the one carrying Obama to 349 electoral votes.
Yeah, that’s the ticket.
