Colin Gorenstein — Donald Trump says Sarah Palin is a “really special person” who would be great on his presidential cabinet


Say what?
Did you know that a Sarah Palin-themed radio show called “The Palin Update” exists? It does. And Monday’s guest on the “Mama Grizzly”-hosted program was no other than GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

Turns out, there’s a very good reason Trump agreed to appear on the show: In his words, she’s “really a special person.” A special person that he’s been considering for his cabinet. 
Asked by host/Palin-stan Kevin Scholla whether he could see himself having governor Palin “along in some capacity” (“picking up the phone, giving [her] a call and picking her brain on some things”), Trump responded:

“I’d love that. Because she really is somebody who knows what’s happening and she’s a special person, she’s really a special person and I think people know that.” 
What’s more, Trump later declared that “everybody loves” Palin. She’s “tough” and “smart” — unlike the current Republican rivals who are “weak” and “ineffective” leaders, he said. “[Voters] like the Sarah Palin kind of strength, you just don’t see very much of it anymore.” 
Another vice-presidential run?

Or, she can oversee Russia.

You know from where. :)

This just gets wackier all the time.

We may as well have the National Enquirer run for office, or the current champ of the WWF.

The brand IS the faux-democracy?

Good idea Roger: the first chief of the newly created Russia Home Surveillance Network

And so it was that Bear Hunting with Palin made the bestseller list.

The Republican Tea Party political establishment breathed a sigh of relief that it wasn't Sarah Palin that shot and decapitated Cecil the Lion.

"Special" as in intellectually challenged?

Yes, Palin is "intellectually challenged" and possibly unhinged. So was Reagan, but the men in grey suits, as we say here in the UK, ensured that the obviously stupid, like Reagan, are kept safely away from politics and left to play with sand castles and go to bed early.

Smart but dangerous politicians, or at least semi-literate but dangerous politicians are another matter. There may not be a planet left if Jeb Bush or Hilary Clinton make it to the White House.

I suspect all Donald Trump needs to be distracted are some voluptuous young ladies. It is high time for Hugh Hefner and Larry Flynt to come to the aid of their country, having been criminally negligent in their duties when most needed during the Clinton presidency.
