It is a dream of many a Democratic strategist: A Hannity-Palin Ticket or Palin-Hannity Ticket in 2012. According to one news report, Sean Hannity added fuel to the speculation this week by saying that he would not rule out a run and would await direction from the Almighty. (It is assumed that that is a reference to God as opposed to Roger Ailes).
When asked by radio sidekick Bill Cunningham, Hannity left open the possibility of a run, saying “I’ve never made a decision in my life without – whatever destiny God has you’ve got to fulfill it.” Not a single decision in his life. That must make lunch menu decisions rather difficult.
When the audience erupted in feverish excitement at the prospect after his statement, Hannity asked: “Would any of you really want me to run?”
Faced with shrinking popularity polls, many at the DNC were saying “oh yes, please.” For hard-right Republicans, a Palin-Hannity ticket might be the best of all worlds since Palin would resign halfway through her term and conservatives could enjoy both a President Palin and a President Hannity — if their hearts could take it.
The Palin-Hannity cabinet has some obvious choices:
Secretary of Defense: God
Of course, if the Almighty is too busy with the other decision’s in Sean’s life, there is John Yoo for Justice, Oliver North for Defense, Gov. Sanford for Transportation, Sen. David Vitter for Labor, Bernie Ebbers for Commerce, Jeff Skilling for Treasury (Ken Lay is no longer available), Joseph Hazelwood for Interior — and of course Glen Beck for White House Spokesman. The only danger would be that the hearts of some Republicans would literally burst out of their chests in spontaneous explosions of joy.
Possible slogans based on past campaigns:
“Palin-Hannity: In Your Heart, You Know They’re [Far] Right.”
“Palin-Hannity: Its the Antebellum in America again.”
“Palin-Hannity: God-Chosen, Fox-Certified”
“Palin-Hannity: Because One Can Never Be Too Right.”
“Palin-Hannity: No You Can’t”
“Palin-Hannity: An Endangered Bird in Every Pot, a Humvee in every garage”
“Palin-Hannity: Stop Thinking About Tomorrow and Start Thinking About Yesterday.”
“Palin-Hannity: Building a Bridge to the Eighteenth Century.”
