If Republicans are looking to blame a woman for the destruction of the Republican Party, they need look no further than their own party.
The key to understanding how disastrous Sarah Palin has been to the credibility of the Republican Party is understanding that Tina Fey simply put on a pair of rimless glasses and quoted Sarah Palin. Palin's own words were so ridiculous, so over the top, that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler only had to add the most minor of embellishments.
There's a fine line between being joked about and becoming the joke itself, and it would seem that Palin has crossed this line and dragged the Republican Party with her.
In just two days, Palin will take the stage with Joe Biden for 90 minutes of live television and unscripted questions about stuff Palin knows little or nothing about. Two days after that, Tina Fey will almost certainly perform another Palin skit.
It seems so long ago, doesn't it, that sunny day late in August when Republicans fell deliriously in love with Palin when she was announced as McCain's running mate. It's hard to believe that it's only been a month since McCain's fateful pick. A lot can happen in a month.
