Welcome back to another entry of In Case You Wish You Missed It, the news you wish wouldn’t happen but, somehow, does.
No matter what you may think about Donald Trump and his catch-phrase campaign for the 2016 presidential election, we all have to agree on one thing: it’s pretty damn entertaining. Maybe we shouldn’t be entertained by a presidential election the way we are entertained by an episode of Real Housewives, but that’s a debate for another time.
Trump’s reality campaign went into another gear on Tuesday night as former governor of Alaska and John McCain’s 2008 election handicap Sarah Palin took the stage to give Trump a ringing endorsement. Literally ringing, like my ears were as I listened to what sounded like a ring monologue for the WWE.
It is believed that a Palin endorsement would help bolster Trump in Iowa and, in general, the Evangelical sector of Republican voters. On the other hand, I have a suspicion that Palin may be a mole from the Cruz camp, inserted into Trump’s campaign to make potential voters wince and think, “I’m going in whatever direction she [Palin] isn’t.” We’ve seen this sort of backstab in pro-wrestling before. Maybe Trump will get the Republican nomination and Palin will be back in there as a running mate so that Mike Judge’s Idiocracy can finally come to fruition.
And didn’t Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson give a celebrity endorsement to Ted Cruz? Sure, it looked like a nice, highly paid commercial dumped into the middle of the NFL playoffs, but when has a reality TV star ever made a money grab?
But let’s not forget this candid shot in September during a Tea Party rally.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for the next episode.
