Sarah Palin: Half-term Governor Looking For “Short Term” Cabinet Job

So, Sarah Palin is angling for a cabinet position as Energy Secretary in Donald Trump’s administration.  Here is what she said:

“If I were head of that, I’d get rid of it,” the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” referring to the Department of Energy. “Energy is my baby,” she said. “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.”

If I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job, but it would be … really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge.”

Of course.  Because staying in any governmental position for the long haul is boring and haaard and cuts into her self-promotion time.

And, by the way Sarah, the Department of the Interior is the United States federal executive department of the U.S. government responsible for the management and conservation of most federal land and natural resources, not the Department of Energy.

You know, those things “God dumped on this part of the earth.”
