Shooting Straight (Obligatory gun metaphor. Check!)in Iowa RV's... We Wish
In Minnesota this morn, headed to Iowa, catching CNN's Jake Tapper's tit-for-tat on airport screens - don't know how he stays so patient with politicians repeating poll-tested rehearsed memes in place of answers to his questions; he's got the patience of Job! (There goes the old irony meter again!)
Respecting all candidates gutsy enough to run, of course, but Tapper's Rubio/Cruz conventional exchanges in their comfy campaign RV's today make us appreciate worthy rogue candidate(s) even more with their refreshingly unscripted interviews. Thank Trump for that. (Thank "Trump" for that? Nice to see that Trump has now replaced "God" in her vernacular.) Those Rubio/Cruz hits prove RV's can be better tools to extract truthful conversation the way we use ours - hauling gear to hunting grounds to shoot dinner. (Second obligatory gun reference. Double check!) Out there headed to the wilds inherently includes letting hair down and conversing free and heartfelt. (Conversing "free and heartfelt?") Reporters - try that next time! For voters' edification, see if the guys can shoot straight in that kind of setting. (And there's number three. Check!)
Catching the next leg from Alaska that lands me at NBC's Iowa doorstep, I look forward to guesting on their Today Show tomorrow morn! (By the way Iowans here's a helpful hint from an Alaskan. If you sprinkle your property with pages torn out of a dictionary or encyclopedia it can ward off batshit crazy half term quitter evil spirits. They are repelled by information and facts.)
- Sarah Palin
I know that earlier some of you hypothesized that Palin would probably just be "phoning it in" for her Today Show interview from up here in Alaska.
But I guess she done showed you, now din't she?
So once again I think it is pretty clear that Trump is dangling something fairly enticing to get Palin out of bed and flying all the way out to Iowa just to give his massive ego a couple of strokes on morning television.
Gee, I wonder what it is?
Update: Yep flying commercial now.
How the not so mighty have fallen.
