My most fervent wish for what will happen after Donald Trump is crushed on Election Day is that the Orange Menace will retreat back to Trump Tower and not show his Cheeto face for several years. Oh, and once the 2016 election is concluded, I’d also love for Sarah Palin to take an extended trip to Antarctica and not have access to any electronic devices while there.
The half-term quitter from Alaska appeared last night on a special edition of The O’Reilly Factor and proved yet again just how totally brainless she is, telling O’Reilly:
“Well, if Trump wins, then America wins.”
But might the enthusiasm for Trump be on the wane, especially in Michigan, which has drawn the attention of both campaigns in recent days? Palin, pretending to have a clue, declared:
“You’re not in Michigan, then, cos they are hot, hot, hot for Trump.”
O’Reilly reminded Palin:
“The polls say that Clinton’s up by five. Are you willing to make a prediction that Trump will carry Michigan this time around?”
Palin couldn’t resist going full moron for her response:
“There’s no reason why he wouldn’t. Like I’ve said before, polls are only good for strippers and cross-country skiers. What matters is that two days from now, you know, the gettin’ out the vote effort and making sure these Reagan Democrats and independents and Michigan Republicans get out their vote.
“I just don’t put a whole lot of faith in polls, especially two days out.”
Of course, it’s instructive to recall that this is the very same Sarah Palin who had faith she and John McCain would win in 2008. That didn’t turn out too well, did it? She also was one of the main cheerleaders for Mitt Romney in 2012, and he got stomped by President Obama. So if Palin is predicting Trump will win Michigan, you might as well go ahead and put the state in the Clinton column and count those 16 electoral votes for the Democrats.
