Who will play opposite Tina Fey ...

... in the tween romance flick Sarah Stumps for Trump?

Yep. The New York Times reports that Sarah Palin endorsed Trump. You might think an endorsement from the shallow nitwit who lost her bid for Vice POTUS would be a boat anchor to be avoided at all costs by a GOP candidate. But Palin and Trump are BFF, at least for the political moment called Iowa. Here are a couple of reasons why Donald loves Sarah.

As Mrs. Palin announced her backing, Mr. Trump stood wearing a satisfied smile as she scolded mainstream Republicans as sellouts and praised how Mr. Trump had shaken up the party. “He’s been going rogue left and right,” Mrs. Palin said of Mr. Trump, using one of her signature phrases. “That’s why he’s doing so well. He’s been able to tear the veil off this idea of the system.”

Over the years Palin has actually cultivated a number of relationships in Iowa,” said Craig Robinson, the former political director of the Republican Party of Iowa and publisher of the website The Iowa Republican. “There are the Tea Party activists who still think she’s great and a breath of fresh air, but she also did a good job of courting Republican donors in the state,” he added.

Other conservatives said that Mrs. Palin serves as a particularly effective shield against Mr. Cruz, who has assiduously courted Iowa’s evangelical voters.

“Palin’s brand among evangelicals is as gold as the faucets in Trump Tower,” said Ralph Reed, the chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition.

From the standpoint of columnists, bloggers, and cartoonists, life could be good.

Mrs. Palin could amplify the news media-circus aspects of Mr. Trump’s candidacy: She too is a reality television star accustomed to playing to the cameras and often accused of emphasizing flash over substance.

Try flash with no substance. Fitz should have fun with this one.
