Palin's punch

According to Toby Harnden the media were predicting Palin's stock would take a dip as her endorsement proved of little worth:

"The other bit of conventional wisdom was that Sarah Palin endorsements did not matter or were even counter-productive and that Joe Miller, the candidate she had backed in Alaska, was a sure-fire loser against Senator Lisa Murkowski, the incumbent who inherited her father’s seat after her father appointed her to it (yep, pretty cosy) in 2002."

Each of her Senate endorsements looks likely to win even the rank outisder in Alaska and overall 20 of her 30 endorsements won (a 67% success rate).  Perhaps now Harnden will be less dismissive of her new media approach that others have begun to recognise.
