Someone — anyone — please make her go away.
Sarah Palin brought along one of her favorite working-class heroes to a campaign rally in northern Virginia on Monday: Tito Munoz, or as he’s better known to Palin and her audiences, “Tito the builder.”
When Palin took the stage, she cracked to Munoz that “not since the Jackson Five has the name Tito been used so often.”
Barack Obama has opened up an eight-point lead over Republican John McCain in Virginia, and the Democrat is entering the final week of the campaign with several core advantages when it comes to turning out his supporters, according to a new Washington Post poll.
And one of the main reasons why Virginia may go to the Democratic candidate for the first time since LBJ?
Palin also is dragging down McCain in Virginia, the poll indicates. Half of Virginia voters now have "strongly" or "somewhat" negative views of the Alaska governor, a 12 percentage-point increase from September.
Hope you enjoyed those 15 minutes, Sarah.
