Carson: Palin On Trump's Short List For V.P.

No, this is not an article from The Onion.

('SNL': Darrell Hammond's Trump Searches for His Vice President in Cold Open)

Don't look for old Stabby Ben to pull a Cheney and pick himself as Drumpf's running mate, but he did give us a preview of who may be on his short list, and oh joy, and it includes the Quitta' from Wasilla:

Ben Carson, the neurosurgeon turned presidential candidate turned unfiltered pitchman for Donald Trump and now part of the presumptive nominee’s vice presidential search committee, sat in the back of a Town Car with his wife, Candy, on his way to a televised interview. He had just explained to the reporter riding along that he wanted no role in a Trump administration when news arrived of a new poll naming him as the best liked of a list of potential running mates.

“Who else was on the list?” he asked quietly, maintaining his usual inscrutable calm. The most favorably regarded contenders after himself, he was told, were John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and Chris Christie.

“Those are all people on our list,” he said.

Other than Christie, I'd be surprised if any of the others he named would be willing to run with Trump, but who knows.
