It's not her, it's you.

WASHINGTON — A leading House Republican says Sarah Palin cost the GOP control of the Senate.

Questioned about those comments on Tuesday, a spokesman for Rep. Spencer Bachus of Alabama said the remarks had been taken out of context but didn't retract them.
Bachus, in line to become chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, initially blamed Palin last week at a local Chamber of Commerce luncheon. According to the Shelby County Reporter, he said the Senate would be in Republican hands if not for losses by tea party candidates endorsed by the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential nominee.
Spencer Bachus is a typical politician.  He's in a firm position and wields quite a bit of power in the Republican Party.  I can't remember a time when I saw him run unopposed (a indictment of the stupidity of Alabama voters, if nothing else).  He brings a lot of money to his district, and therefore has a lot of support.  He's iffy on gun rights, and frankly nothing but a RINO, tax and spend Republican.  He is what is wrong with this country.  He is what is wrong with the Republican party.  He is what is wrong with the United States government.

And I will dance a jig when he finally goes down in flames.  I voted for his Republican opponent in the primary, and I wrote in a candidate against him on November the 2nd, and I promise to do everything I can to see this man drug kicking and screaming from his comfy fiefdom as soon as possible.  He is one of those dinosaurs of the Republican Party who refuse to acknowledge the error of their ways, and it is only the even greater stupidity of the Democratic Party that keeps him from being forced to see the truth.
