It simply won't stay in its frozen Alaskan cesspool.

Quote

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Sunday that she wouldn't hesitate to run for vice president again — though she might do a few things differently if given the chance to re-board the “Straight Talk Express.”

“Heck yeah,” said Palin, who was Republican nominee John McCain’s running mate in his 2008 presidential bid against then-Democratic nominee Barack Obama. “I would do it again in a heartbeat.”

In a conversation with conservative commentator Mark Levin on Fox News, Palin said she was glad to have been chosen by the McCain camp but still harbored a few regrets from the run-up to the election.

“I’d have pushed back harder on some of those who were trying to mold me into something that I was not during the campaign,” she said. “I would have pushed back and gotten more truth out there.”

Palin, a supporter of President Donald Trump, also revealed the “political, practical” reasons she believes she was chosen as McCain’s vice presidential candidate.

“He probably knew that they needed someone younger, needed a female and needed a true conservative to balance everything else out,” she said. “They were smart enough to have chosen someone with a lot of administrative experience — that was my career.”

I believe the exact phrase Andrew Sullivan used was "half-term governor of Alaska."

I was just thinking, after Ted Nugent's progressively more unhinged attempts to stay in the news, that we hadn't heard from Sarah Palin in a while...

I'm sure she has, we just all pay attention to "fake news".

Maybe she sees Scott Pruitt able to get away with first class travel and luxury hotels, so she wants in on the action. And she'd love a special flag to be flown when she's in the building, like Zinke. If she could have done that with Alaskan citizens, she might have stayed on.

The Dumpster administration is setting the bar to new lows, so that even a caribou won't get tripped crossing it.

They will take turns saying “hold my beer”; possibly literally.

Oh I’m sure. Grifters gotta grift, I’m sure she’s frantic that she’s missing peak grift.

Oh, come on, just lay off Sarah, why don't you? She was Mayor of Wasilla AK too, remember. I know I would not have lasted twelve hours in that job! Massive respect!
