If you are a normal person who remembers that way back in the distant past of three weeks ago members of a presidential administration were at least supposed to have some minimal knowledge of the departments they were appointed to administrate, you may be wondering why the flying monkey hell Team Trump would be eyeing former Alaska governor and current professional word salad spinner Sarah Palin to head the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Dr. Ben Carson, nominee for Housing and Urban Development, was picked because apparently, he once lived in a city and that's what passes for expertise now. Sarah Palin's claim to head Veterans Affairs appears to be just as tenuous, and based on her belief (spoken at the very Trump rally where she announced her endorsement of Trump, because of course it was) that her son Track wouldn't have been arrested the previous evening for punching his girlfriend if it wasn't for Obama not respecting soldiers enough.
“I can certainly relate with other familes who kind of feel these ramifications of some PTSD and some of the woundedness that our soldiers do return with,” Palin continued. “And it makes me realize more than ever it is now or never for the sake of Americas finest that we have that commander in chief that will respect them and honor them.”
Track Palin, who served a year in Iraq during the Dubya administration, was arrested for an incident involving booze, an assault rifle, and punching his girlfriend in the face. Veterans called it “an excuse to shift blame away from her son's domestic violence.”
This would appear to be how Donald Trump got the impression that Sarah Palin, not known for finishing complex tasks or for any particular concern about veterans not specifically aimed at deflecting news from her own brawling children, might make a good pick for running the entire VA.
Well, it would fit the president-elect's apparent theme of choosing each of his new administration members based on an elaborate dare.
