Palin Wants To Lead Trump's D.O.E. So She Could Get Rid Of It

Is there a better way to lead the Department of Energy than to quit it? Boy howdy, the word-salad enthusiast thinks that's a swell idea.

Jake Tapper gave Sarah Palin over fifteen minutes to vomit a copious amount of word salad upon the unfortunate viewers of CNN. Tapper asked her what position she would be best suited for in a Trump Cabinet.

PALIN: "I think a lot about the Department of Energy, because energy is my baby: oil and gas and minerals, those things that God has dumped on this part of the Earth for mankind's use instead of us relying on unfriendly foreign nations..."

Ironically, she is the only potential cabinet nominee to happily speak of dissolving her own position once she attains it.

"I'd get rid of it. And I'd let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people who are affected by the developments within their states. If I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job, but it would be ... really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge."

She's pro-responsible alright. She's responsible for demolishing John McCain's presidential campaign. It's funny that her idol, Donald Trump, also used her phrase, 'gotcha question' when referencing Hugh Hewitt's question about the Iraqi QUDs fighting force and their leader, Suleiman. Trump and Palin have a lot in common, both proudly proclaiming their ignorance like it's a badge of honor. What a complete joke of an interview. I sure do miss real journalism.
