Sarah Palin: Senate kingmaker - David Catanese - POLITICO.com "kingmaker"????? They all suck up to idiots now. Wasn't there a time when they valued family? Now they elect dead beat dads, fruitcakes like West and idiots like $arah. Poor impotent boehner can't even do his job because no one listens to him. His job now is to leave the golf course/tanning bed/tavern long enough to lie in front of the cameras. Just imagine what it must be like for the old school pubs to have to suck up to the lowest of the low. BTW, if $illy $arah is such hot stuff to the party, why doesn't the Etch A Sketch idiot crown her veep? Because, even Mittens knows she's the Kiss of Death.
