Look! An INSANE Republican Candidate!

No, not all of them... just lil' ol' Newt Gingrich for this:

"[Sarah Palin] is certainly one of the people you would look at [as a running mate.] I am a great admirer of hers, and she was a remarkable reform governor of Alaska. She's somebody who I think brings a great deal to the possibility of helping in government and that would be one of the possibilities. There are also some very important cabinet positions that she could fill very, very well. I can't imagine anybody that would do a better job of driving us to an energy solution than Gov. Palin, for example. Tell her that she would certainly be on the list of one of the people we would consider."
If ever there was a wingnut pander in the face of free falling poll numbers, this is the mother of all panders. Sarah Fucking Palin, Newt? Seriously?

The only other thought that comes to mind is that Gingrich is purposely sabotaging his campaign because he never really wanted to be President in the first place. This was all a ruse to increase his exposure for the latest book sale. It's all about money for Newt, and since his child labor law schtick didn't implode his candidacy, you know because the current GOP voting public has gone bats hit crazy, why not throw Palin into the mix?

Yeah it sure helped McCain when he asked her to be his running mate.Hey Newt,if you want to be really crazy,ask Trump to be your V.P!No,never mind,the one thing that's clear about Trump is that he doesn't play second fiddle to nobody.
prediction:Romney edges out Paul in Iowa,wins big in N.H but will be stopped in Paul or Newt.
I'm rooting for Paul in Iowa because that will really freak out the Republican establishment.Don't be surprised if they pull some Rovian trick in Iowa just to make sure Paul doesn't win there
