Why did Donald Trump choose Sarah Palin to back him? I know some stand on the left, right, or somewhere yonder. But Palin? Trump brash, Rubio knows how to speak from his collegiate debate days, Cruz with his past with the maple syrup. But why Palin? McCain died with her in 08. Good god. Ryan’s considerably better than her. Sanatorium (or whatever it is) is slightly more level headed. But Palin. My god.
