I tells ya, we're dealing with a bunch of freakin' geniuses on the other side:

Pennsylvania voters can't afford cap and trade legislation, says Sarah Palin. And that's why they need to send Republican John Raese to the Senate.

Except that John Raese is the Republican nominee in West Virginia.

You know, it's an easy mistake when you remember that Raese's infamous "hicky" ad was produced and filmed in Pennsylvania; an ad for which the WV AFL-CIO has asked Raese to apologize.

Or maybe Palin should advise Florida voters, since that is where Raese's wife is registered to vote.

And the demonization of the "cap and trade" bill? Deader than a doornail. And even if it wasn't, Democratic rival Joe Manchin has promised to shoot it down. Literally.

By my count, that tweet from Palin (since removed and replaced) is 0 for 3. Yer out, Sarah.
