The Palin Blaming Begins

On CNN right now, the story being discussed is how "some Republicans" are blaming Sarah Palin for McCain's loss. Yes, it's all her fault. I'm sure you're all shocked.

On video, Sarah Palin said (I'm paraphrasing) that our disastrous economy had much to do with the McCain campaign failure, and added "If I caused John McCain to lose even one vote, I'm sorry."

As much as I dislike Palin's policies, watching this forced "apology" made me sick. While her addition to the ticket certainly caused problems with his campain, she is hardly the sole reason for his failure, and she shouldn't have to apologize as if this were true. But it's always easier to blame the woman, isn't it?

I'll post video later if I can find it.
