Sarah Palin Apologizes to Conservatives for Losing in 2008

Nothing about the Republicans loss to Barack Obama in 2008 was Sarah Palin’s fault. In fact, I would be willing to bet that it was only because of Sarah Palin and her exciting personality that the GOP had any shot in 2008. Palin was an energizing force for conservatives and she has nothing to apologize for… but apologize she did – though it was tongue-in-cheek. When she spoke at CPAC on Thursday she apologized for the McCain campaigns 2008 loss to Obama…

Sarah Palin apologized to conservatives Thursday for her loss alongside John McCain to President Barack Obama in the 2008 election.

Following her speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, she was asked to give a one-word answer to the words “Barack Obama.”

“Sorry,” she said with a shrug, and then added apologetically: “We came in second out of two!”

She repeated her apology when asked to respond to the words “Hillary Clinton.”

She was thrown a bone with the final question — whether she believes the media treats Republicans who run for office differently than Democrats.

“Yes,” she responded.

The apology followed a remarkably focused speech on veterans that was met with a standing ovation. She slammed the Veterans Affairs Office for its treatment of veterans, slammed the Obama administration for its lack of moral clarity and slammed bureaucrats for holding the military back with rules for political correctness.

“We must provide our troops the political will and rules of engagement to win,” she said
