Sarah Palin endorses Michele Bachmann's debt ceiling vote [VIDEO]
|Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann make Sean Hannity very excited.|
But on Tuesday night, when she talked Republican presidential candidates with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Palin played the role of hockey mom. Palin says Bachmann did the right thing, soaring into the chambers from on high, trying, but failing to stop the U.S. House from passing a bill to raise the debt ceiling.
As Palin made televised guesses about essential fiscal policy, Hannity stopped with the googly eyes just long enough to ask if any Republican candidate impressed her during the near-crisis over the debt ceiling.
"Is there any candidate that spoke out loudly enough that you were appluading?" Hannity asked.
"Michele Bachmann, she spoke out, and she cast her vote according to her principles," Palin said. "She stood true."
A few things are clear from this video. Firstly, Sean Hannity likes his own voice: Notice that he talks twice as much as Palin while he "interviews" her. Secondly, Sean Hannity wants Sarah Palin to run for president, or marry him -- probably both.
Thirdly, the terrifying idea of a Palin-Bachmann or Bachmann-Palin presidential ticket, once the subject of late night monologues on TV and beer-soaked rants in hipster bars, seems more and more possible every day.
