Oh, all the gods No. Fuck No.

Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin.

…According to reports, former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is a top contender for secretary of the interior.

Trump mentioned he would like to appoint Palin to a position within his administration when she endorsed him in January 2016.


It looks like that role might be secretary of the interior, according to Politico. The secretary of the interior leads the Department of the Interior, responsible for the nation’s public lands and natural resources. The department oversees land, water and other natural resources, protects fish and wildlife and preserves the environment and historic places around the country. The department also coordinates relations with tribal communities and island territories.

Palin has developed a political platform based on making the U.S. energy independent.

“Energy is my baby,” she said in an interview with CNN in September 2015. “Oil and gas and minerals – those things that God has dumped on this part of the earth for mankind’s use instead of us relying on unkind foreign nations for us to import their resources.”


Other contenders for Trump’s secretary of the interior pick include Forrest Lucas, the founder of Lucas Oil, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin and venture capitalist Robert Grady, among others.

Via Raw Story. The Southern Poverty Law Center has an article up about the Trump Team, and to say it’s a nightmare is an understatement. Every corrupt, hateful person you can think of, they are there. Politico is also covering this.

I barely have words here. It doesn’t really matter who is appointed, whoever it is will go full scale rapacious, ensuring we have land which cannot support life, and water that is poisoned. Congratulations, all you fucking Trumpidiots,* you’ve signed the beginning of our death warrant.

* Yes, if you voted for a third party, wrote someone in, or abstained, you are a Trumpidiot. No, I’m not letting you off the hook. This was a binary choice, that was blindingly obvious, and no one can honestly deny that. Rather than do the right thing, you made a conscious decision to do the wrong thing. Your little act of rebelliousness may have given you satisfaction at the time, but I hope with all my heart it has been slammed home to you what you have done, the immense wrong you have helped to perpetrate against millions of people; against our planet, and all the life on it.

    Of course. Obviously.

    This weekend, I am NOT watching/listening to/reading ANY news. Not here, not anywhere. By Monday, I expect the ambassador to the court of St. James to be Hulk Hogan.

    A fucking dominionist to oversee our national resources. A blithe, unintelligible dominionist. Fucking fucking fuck.

    Ben Carson is on the top of the list for Sec. of Ed, I hear.

    The packing of the Dunning-Kruger administration begins, dog help us all.

    Oh, an ignorant dimwit whose native language is word salad in charge of education. Perfect. I’m not even close to getting over being shell shocked, it’s just going deeper.

    But she is a woman! Show some solidarity feminists. Where’s the love for someone who has broken through the glass ceiling? She may end up on the Supreme Court so you better be nice.

    Gosh, you must be unaware of my one rule: don’t be an asshole. Pity you went and broke it. Bye. -- Caine.

    A word of warning to all the rest of you asses who think you are so darn witty: you aren’t. Don’t bother attempting to make a joke, because you’ll fail, then I have to go to the trouble of wishing you into the cornfield.
