Sarah Palin Promises To Handle The Whole 'Russia Situation' And We're Running For The Hills

Breathe a sigh of relief because the former vice-president nominee is reassuring the world she's got the whole Russia debacle under control

I have a theory.

Remember in the weeks after the election, when the internet was alight with memes of imagined conversation between then Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama discussing the incoming of President-elect Trump into the Oval Office?

Jokes such as Biden planting whoopie cushions under all of the meeting room chairs, locking Trump in the broom closet and planting Obama's fake birth certificate in the President's desk had us all crying with laughter in the office.

Well, I have a feeling Biden left a letter to Trump explaining that protocol demands all new Presidents have to choose their Cabinet by placing a blind fold over their eyes, picking up a fake donkey tail and pinning it on a map of pictures of random people that have little or no relevant experience in the relevant field.

It's either that, or get to grips with the idea Trump intended to choose climate change denier Scott Pruitt to lead the US Environmental Protection Agency?

No, that's got to be a joke, right? Good one, Joe. Good one...

So, to add to the peat-bog of political buffoonery, we now have to face the idea that Sarah Palin would like to handle the USA's relationship with notoriously tricky customer Russia.

Yesterday, she reassured her followers that she's got Trump's back if the whole 'Russia situation' goes Pete Tong.

The 'Russia Situation' being the news that the CIA may have uncovered Russian interfered in the 2016 US presidential election.


Remember during the 2008 election when Sarah, as vice-presidential nominee, told ABC news that she is clued up with the goings on in Russia because she can see the country from Alaska?

'They're our next-door neighbors. And you can actually see Russia, from land, here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska,' she explained.

Yes, that makes total sense, Sarah.

Referencing her 2008 interview, she assuaged all our Putin related fears by letting us know she's got an eye on that whole sitch.


The double whammy of Trump trashing any notion of Russian interference in the election and Palin pledging to take the night shift in her duties as head of 'neighbourhood watch', is all the evidence we need that everything is going to be totally okay.

Us? Panicking? No you're the one who's panicking.
