Rumors were floating around in early November that Sarah Palin was being considered for secretary of the interior but that dropped off the radar pretty quickly.
This report about Palin being considered to head Veterans Affairs seems more credible. It would be awesome to see her in this role. She would do a great job and liberals would finally be forced to admit that she’s nothing like the caricature of her they created.
ABC News has the story:
Sarah Palin Under Consideration for VA Secretary
Sarah Palin is under consideration for secretary of veterans affairs, a close Palin aide and a top Donald Trump transition official tell ABC News.
The Palin aide tells ABC News that in “recent days,” Palin told Trump transition officials: “I feel as though the megaphone I have been provided can be used in a productive and positive way to help those desperately in need.”
The VA is the largest government agency with over 300,000 federal employees and a budget of $182 billion for 2017.
Palin’s son-in-law, Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, posted a SarahPAC video to his Facebook page earlier this week that heavily focuses on her work with veterans and her specific connection to the community. Her eldest son, Track, is a veteran who served in Iraq in 2008. The video, which is not new, seems to clearly show her interest in the position, and in the speech, she hits the VA “bureaucracy,” saying it is “killing our vets.”
John Nolte made a good point about this on Twitter:
Sarah Palin loves Veterans and is the mother of one. She also proved as governor and mayor to be a superb manager.
Perfect to run the VA.

As mentioned in the headline of this post, one of the side bonuses of picking Palin for this role is that it would drive the left insane.
