A political endorsement is a political endorsement. Receiving one is nice, usually won’t hurt you unless its from Charlie Manson. Endorsements don’t mean much anymore. Use to be if someone of influence gave an endorsement, people would say “Hey, if he/she supports JOHN DOE THE CANDIDATE, maybe I should.” Not so much anymore. We have found that those unleashing their stamp on a candidate is probably as full of crap and corrupt as the candidate.
Sarah Palin punched Trump’s ticket yesterday, openly said, as only Sarah is willing, a few things about the establishment Republicans and their difference from Mr. Trump. I agree with much of what Sarah said, she was right, but gees girl, you sounded nearly drunk. Somebody give her a breathalizer or blood test. She had some Adrenalin pumping. It came at kind of an awkward time, her son Track was arrested for Domestic Violence and a couple of other charges. Not getting into that, the dude is an adult, Sarah is not responsible for his action. Some things always circling around Sarah.
I will give Sarah credit, she can say a lot in a short period of time. That is usually a campaign benefit. Not, sure Sarah’s endorsement helps The Donald that much, she isn’t that popular, even among Republicans, certainly not Democrats; they hate her. Hmmm! 🙂 When you want to kick them around, not bad to have her on the team, so long as it’s understood she won’t share the ticket. Let her do the dirty work. No she is not Vice Prez material. Saying she is unpopular may be inaccurate, she certainly is more popular than I am, Tea Partiers love her, maybe Trump picks up some votes there if he didn’t already have them.
Trump and Palin are good in that they are often on the same page, but they are too much alike to have her as a running mate. You’re only securing what you probably already have. A running mate must tap into other voters, and Trump could use someone that will get the Hispanic and black vote. Don’t beat up Cruz too much Donald!!!
Someday Hillary could be endorsing a candidate, now there’s your Charlie Manson.
