Biden Destroys Left Meme That "Palin Cost McCain The Election" With Honest Reference To Economic Collapse & Inferred Palin Momentum

For the last five years the constant meme from the left has been "John McCain's selection of Sarah Palin cost him the presidency". 

The facts are of course that post election polls showed that Palin was a plus for McCain, and that as is easily inferred from Biden's statement, the momentum the McCain team received from Palin's convention speech-where they moved ahead of Obama in the polls, could have well carried them to victory.

No team could have overcome the Bush legacy and then the massive economic collapse just before the election.The fact that McCain did as well as he did-almost as well as Romney, is a tribute to the Palin effect.

From Biden's mouth to the rabid lefts ears:

From a CNN report

- Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that if not for the economic collapse surrounding the 2008 presidential race, Sen. John McCain might have beat President Barack Obama.
"The truth of the matter is, Barack knows it, I know, had the economy not collapsed around your ears, John, in the middle of literally, as things were moving, I think you probably would have won," Biden said during the annual Sedona forum at the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University.
"It would have been incredibly, incredibly, incredibly close. You inherited a really difficult time," Biden said to McCain, R-Arizona.
