Sarah Palin Lets Todd Go ‘Rogue’ & Endorse Newt Gingrich

todd palin and sarah palinSarah Palin let husband Todd out from under house arrest on Monday long enough for him to publicly endorse Newt Gingrich for president. Some thought it was Sarah's way of telling the world who she's backing, since clearly Todd isn't allowed to think or speak for himself, but no, no, Sarah went on TV Tuesday night to clear up all those rumors. Just because Todd likes Newt doesn't mean Sarah likes Newt, you guys.

She explained to FOX Business Network’s Eric Bolling that "the First Dude went rogue" and that she "respects him for doing that."


You know, I had forgotten about Todd's nickname: First Dude. Kind of love it all over again, now. Especially coming out of Sarah's mouth -- it sounds so friendly yet degrading. And when she said those words, the First Dude has gone rogue, I thought she was disclosing a lascivious affair he'd had with some housekeeper or something. But, no. We're not that lucky. Anyway, that's neither here nor there. Sarah continued:

Todd is all about hard hats and steel-toed boots and getting people to work. Todd obviously believing that Newt Gingrich represents more of that connectivity to the working class and to what it’s going to incentivize the private sector to create jobs for the skilled workforce.

Fair enough. Everyone over 18 is allowed a vote and that includes Todd. I'm just a little confused as to why he thinks Newt has his ear to the ground when it comes to America's blue collar workers, those who wear steel-toed boots and hard hats, as it were. When I think of Newt, I don't really see him as a get-his-hands-dirty type of guy. I see a career politician who's made millions and lives in a mansion and may or may not own a helicopter.

I wonder if Sarah is punishing Todd at home right now. Is she forcing him to watch old campaign videos? Maybe she's teaching him a lesson by withholding his PlayStation privileges. Whatever the case may be, Todd's got Newt's back, y'all. Your move, Sarah.

What do you think of Todd Palin's endorsement of Newt Gingrich?
