Sarah Palin endorsed Donald Trump for President:

Well, I am here because like you I know that it is now or never. I’m in it to win it because we believe in America, and we love our freedom. And if you love your freedom, thank a vet. Thank a vet, and know that the United States military deserves a commander in chief that our country passionately, and will never apologize for this country. A new commander in chief who will never leave our men behind. A new commander in chief, one who will never lie to the families of the fallen. I’m in it, because just last week, we’re watching our sailors suffer and be humiliated on a world stage at the hands of Iranian captors in violation of international law, because a weak-kneed, capitulator in chief has decided America will lead from behind.

Anyway, her entirely insane speech has been the subject of some discussion this morning.

Me: She must have tourette’s, right?
Antonia: Or she’s a lyrical poetic genius. Why hasn’t anybody thought of calling his supporters Trumpeters before?

Update: the excellent Amber Jamieson filed a translation of Palin’s speech in her new gig at the Guardian.
