I can't imagine how this particular scholar of a candidate didn't win in 2008.
Immigrants to the United States should "speak American," former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin said on Sunday, adding her voice to a controversy triggered by Donald Trump's criticism of fellow Republican White House hopeful Jeb Bush's use of Spanish.
"It's a benefit of Jeb Bush to be able to be so fluent in Spanish, because we have a large and wonderful Hispanic population that is helping to build America," Palin said on CNN's "State of the Union."
"On the other hand, you know, I think 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.' I mean, that's just, that's - let's speak English," added Palin, Republican presidential nominee John McCain's running mate in 2008.
Politics is hard. We need somebody mean, not smart.
CNN's Jake Tapper asked Palin Sunday for her thoughts on Trump's exchange last week with radio host Hugh Hewitt. Trump had since called Hewitt's questions "gotcha questions."
"I think I’d rather have a President who is tough and puts America first than can win a game of Trivial Pursuit," Palin told Tapper. "I don’t think the public gives a flying flip who, today, is a specific leader of a specific region because that leader will change of course."
Loud, stupid, and wrong beats measured, intelligent and right any day of the week, stupid liberal nerds! Just ask President McCain!
