Demonstrating the intellectual ingenuity that is sorely lacking with the lot of you, Sarah Palin was doing a whole lot more this Labor Day weekend than beach lounging and BBQ.


In fact, Mama Grizzly has already done more this weekend than most of you will do in a lifetime.

She applied for -- and seems to have the inside track -- the position of Energy Secretary in a President Donald Trump administration.

She also made a spirited case against asking the man who wants to be the leader of the free world those pesky, smarty pants, too-tough-to answer “gotcha questions.”

Her most amazing accomplishment, however, was the invention of a entire new language, a language that is sure to make America great again.

It’s called American -- andshe wants each and every immigrantto speak it. STAT.


“We can send a message and say, ‘You want to be in America? A. You better be here legally or you’re out of here. B. When you’re here, let’s speak American,'” Palin told CNN when asked about a new feud between Trump and Jeb Bush over whether it’s wrong to speak Spanish on the campaign trail.

“I mean, that’s just — let’s speak English and that’s kind of a unifying aspect of a nation — the language that is understood by all.”

Bush, who speaks fluent Spanish, slammed Trump as intolerant.

Palin seems to have hitched her fading star to Trump’s juggernaut.

She defended Trump after he was quizzed on a conservative radio show about Iranian military operatives, the Quds Force, and confused them with the Kurds, an ethnic group in northern Iraq that is in a perpetual feud with Turkey for land the Kurds claim.

“I'd rather have a president who is tough and puts America first than can win a game of Trivial Pursuit,” Palin told CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“I don't think the public gives a flying flip if somebody knows who, today, is a specific leader of a specific region or a religion or anything,” she said, “because that leader will change, of course, when the next president comes into power, just based on the volatility of politics in these other areas.”

Palin put in a job application tobe Trump’s energy secretary“because energy is my baby: 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 unfriendly foreign nations.”

Trump said he’d love to have Palin, a fellow Republican who was on Arizona Sen. John McCain's failed White House run,in his administration.

You betcha.
