Chambliss wins: big boost for conservative morale, for GOP resilience in Senate -- and for Palin Power on the campaign trail.

The newly re-elected Georgia Senator says, according to Fox, that Gov. Palin's campaigning "helped put him over the top." She also helped him "peak on the last day," and "to peak and get our base fired up." After all, "When she walks in a room, folks just explode."

Senator, we either couldn't have said it better, or we could have, depending on just what you were trying to say. Clearly, you were at least trying to say -- the the GOP needs to note it -- that Palin is a "rock star."
