It’s a good idea, really. If you’re going to go with vaguely sexist, racist, faux-patriotic blow-hards, you might as well get it over with and go all the way.
Wednesday night came the news that Palin wouldn’t rule out the idea of Fox News host (and professional paranoid) Glenn Beck as a possible 2012 running mate.
“I can envision a couple of different combinations, if ever I were to be in a position to really even seriously consider running for anything in the future, and I’m not there yet,” Palin told Newsmax. “But Glenn Beck I have great respect for. He’s a hoot. He gets his message across in such a clever way. And he’s so bold — I have to respect that. He calls it like he sees it, and he’s very, very, very effective.”
Beck apparently likes the idea of a Beck-Palin ticket, but a Palin-Beck ticket? Not so much.”I was just thinking, what, I’m going to take a back seat to a chick?” Beck quipped, to laughter from the studio. “Go shoot a bear, make some stew, I’m hungry in here.”
In an interview with Newsmax last week, Palin “wouldn’t rule out” running with the controversial talk show host in 2012.
“So while she’s considering it … I just want her to know, I’m ruling it out. A Palin-Beck ticket, I’m absolutely ruling it out,” Beck said. “I’m just saying, Beck-Palin, I’ll consider. But Palin-Beck — can you imagine what an administration with the two of us would be like? She’d be yapping or something, I’d say, ‘I’m sorry, why am I hearing your voice? I’m not in the kitchen.’ I mean, you’d have to live up to the evil conservative stereotypes, you’d have no choice but to do so.”
