You read that right, half-term Alaskan Governor and losing 2008 VP candidate turned incoherent Fox News contributor and reality show "star" is under consideration for a cabinet position as Secretary of the Veterans' Administration. I think it was Brian Williams who said, I think with a bit of sarcasm intended, that she's not a veteran but she's the mother of one... Seriously??? Alright, so I'm the daughter, the wife and the sister of a veteran and the aunt and cousin of a bunch more, does that make me MORE qualified than her? That woman can't put a few words together to form a coherent sentence, how on earth could she serve as Secretary of ANYTHING? SAY IT ISN'T SO!!

Tina Fey must be dusting off her impression even as we speak.

The only "silver lining", if we can call it that, of Trump's electoral college victory is that we'll get to see a lot of Alec Baldwin's portrayal of him over the next few years. Now it looks like we'll also see Tinal Fey again.

It would be ridiculous, but the next four years look bleak indeed!

Bleak for sure. So far his picks are mostly either Fox News contributors or billionaires or both. Somehow I can't relate to any of them and I sure don't TRUST any of them.

When Trump first started talking about running I said he was nothing but the male version of Palin. I remember being SOO relieved that we'd dodged the bullet of having her a heartbeat from the Presidency in 2008, never in my wildest dreams did I think we'd be where we are today.

I think she was briefly considered for a cabinet position, but wasn't chosen for one. However she briefly found her way back into the news when she badmouthed Trump's Carrier deal as somehow being a bad thing. I've never been able to think of her as a leader.

Thanks for this. I'd intended to come back to this discussion and update it with that news but it slipped my mind. She called it "crony capitalism" or something like that. This was probably the first time I've ever agreed with Palin, but maybe not for the same reasons. I think Palin and Trump are just opposite gender versions of one another.

@anniepa Palin isn't as smart as Trump and Trump isn't as old school conservative as Palin. Probably why he didn't choose her.

@clrumfelt That's true, I don't think Donald has any actual principles or core beliefs. It's just whatever will benefit Donald on any given day. Pain's just plain crazy.

It isn't so but it is true that trump can't say a full sentence properly either, I was hoping Sarah would be the vice because then he really would have lost...

I don't know, between the Russians and Jim Comey who knows what would have happened... It would have made for some hilarious SNL skits though.

Would we really even CARE if the media told us nothing about it?

Great point! As far as I'm concerned I'd be happy if I never heard another word about Palin or Trump, they're both wastes.
