And as you also know Sarah Palin was nowhere to be found.
Instead she was at an Iron Dog banquet, posing with one of her flying monkeys.

To be fair she DID take a moment to post this in support of Trump on her Facebook page.
However it was enough for Trump to tweet out his thanks for her "amazing help and support."
Really?Thank you @SarahPalinUSA for your amazing help and support. Big win, leaving now for Atlanta and Nevada.The people of South Carolina got it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 21, 2016
I think his extra stretchy, loose fitting boxer shorts gave him more support than Sarah Palin did in South Carolina.
So now this has me thinking.
What exactly IS the deal between Sarah Palin and Donald Trump?
You would think that after her disastrous speech in Iowa, and her son's recent arrest for punching and kicking his girlfriend while in a drunken rage, Trump would keep her as far away as possible from his campaign.
And yet he sends that tweet.
So then I started to think the unthinkable.
Is it possible that Donald Trump is so arrogant, and full of hubris, that he thinks he can make her his running mate and still win the election?
I mean think of it.
If this whole campaign is essentially a fuck you to President Obama, who embarrassed him so completely during that White House Correspondents Dinner, then who better to put on the ticket than the woman responsible for the "death panels" BS?
I'm not saying that this is what he is considering, but then again there is literally no predicting what he is considering.
As for how I feel about this, on the one hand for an Alaska based political blogger it would be like a dream come true, but for a human being living on planet earth, it is absolutely beyond terrifying.
