"Palin Can't Pick a Winner to Save Her Life"- Seattle Lib Blogs Epic Fail

Caleb Hannan writing in Seattle Weekly "Daily Weekly" headlined his blog "Sarah Palin Can't pick a winner to save her life". He trumpeted Tim Egan's statement in the New York Times that he makes note of the "car wrecks on the Palin highway." Meaning Palin supposedly was a poor picker of candidates to endorse and in the case of some new candidate;

"given her track record thus far, it looks as if he might actually prefer being snubbed by Palin, lest he become just another bit of wreckage worth rubbernecking."
Well how has Hannan's own predictive ability worked out today? Here's what Politico had to say

"Some of Sarah Palin’s riskiest endorsements scored major victories Tuesday for the former Alaska governor, showing off her power in Republican primaries.

"Palin had four primary endorsements in play – Carly Fiorina, Nikki Haley, Terry Branstad and Cecile Bledsoe – and three won or moved on to a runoff."

And what is her track record to date?

•Cecile Bledsoe for U.S. Congress Arkansas 06/03/10 Just missed
•Terry Branstad for governor of Iowa, 06/03/10 Won GOP race
•Joe Miller for U.S. Senate in Alaska, 06/02/10
•Clint Didier for U.S. Senate in Washington State, 05/20/10
•Susana Martinez for governor of New Mexico, 05/15/10 - (Won primary election)
•Nikki Haley for governor of South Carolina, 05/14/10 - (Leads GOP race)
•Carly Fiorina for U.S. Senate in California, 05/06/10 - (Won GOP race)
•Tom Emmer for governor of Minnesota, 04/29/10 - (Leads GOP race)
•Tim Burns for U.S. Congress in Pennsylvania, 04/26/10 - (Won GOP nomination)
•Vaughn Ward for U.S. Congress in Idaho, 03/29/10 - (Lost primary election)
Adam Kinzinger for U.S. Congress in Illinois, 03/29/10
•Allen West for U.S. Congress in Florida, 03/29/10
•Sean Duffy for U.S. Congress in Wisconsin, 02/17/10
•Rand Paul for U.S. Senate in Kentucky, 02/01/10 - (Won primary election)
•Rick Perry for governor of Texas, 01/20/10 - (Won primary election)
•Michele Bachmann for U.S. Congress in Minnesota, 01/20/10
•John McCain for U.S. Senate in Arizona, 01/20/10 - (Leads GOP race)
•Chris Christie for governor of New Jersey, 10/27/09 - (Won special election)
•Bob McDonnell for governor of Virginia, 10/27/09 - (Won special election
•Doug Hoffman for U.S. Congress in New York, 10/22/09 - (Lost special election)
•Saxby Chambliss for U.S. Senate in Georgia, 11/25/08 - (Won runoff election)

And remember-Palin didn't say that every one of her endorsements would automatically win-all she said was that she would endorse and work for those candidates she felt best represented the best interests of America-the voters of course made the ultimate decision.

What has happened today is yet another left wing anti-Palin meme "Palin's endorsements are the kiss of death" has been shot down and joins the many others littering the cesspool of radical leftist propaganda.
