Gingrich thinks Palin would be a darned fine energy secretary

Newt Gingrich told conservative activists on Wednesday that Sarah "Drill Baby Drill" Palin would be an ideal candidate for secretary of energy.

"I can't imagine anybody who would do a better job of driving us to an energy solution than Gov. Palin, for example," Gingrich said during a conference call hosted by Ralph Reed's Faith and Freedom Coalition. "Tell her that she would certainly be on the list of one of the people we would consider."

No matter that Palin is clueless about how global energy markets work. In trying to blame President Obama for high gas prices in May 2011, she made these rambling and nonsensical remarks to Fox News: "But rising gas prices -- there is an inherent link, David, between energy and security, energy and prosperity, and energy and freedom, and this is something that obviously our president doesn't understand because he's doing all that he can to manipulate the U.S. supply of energy. He is diminishing and decreasing the amount of energy in our market domestically and that, of course, resulting in prices that are rising and gas having doubled since he has been in office."

She also doesn't understand climate change, cap-and-trade, and, oh, so much else. .............(more)

2. Palin would be the perfect Republican Energy Secretary

[/font]

Palin is a ding-bat who would be clue less in enforcing policy which would let the big energy corporations run wild.

Zero corporate regulation is the objective of Republicans.

3. Already declined. "I'm nobody's secretary", said Palin. "Heck, I even have my own secretary."...

 

..."Who do you think signs my name on all those pictures?"

5. I think you hit the nail on the head!

I always suspected that was the reason McCain choose her for VP just because of the way he was focused on her butt in their early appearances together. Yep, I wonder if Newt has spotted wife number 4.

And thanks for the good laugh!

7. Well, that is all we need to know right there.




It is now plain as the nose on your face that Newt thinks everyone he addresses has little or no common sense.

It was Sarah Failin who advised us right after the BP Horizon Gulf of Mexico disaster to "trust the oil industry".

Newt, it's now time for you to hop into your little clown car and ride off into the sunset.
