The symptoms of the disease my have gone into remission somewhat upon his leaving office but the methodology of the virus, the intellectual cancer itself never really went away, like any other retro viruses and cancers it metastasizes throughout the body (politic) only to be called forth by the self described wizards of political sorcery when the next target appeared to threaten their grip on their current interpretation of political orthodoxy.
That target is now of course Donald Trump. The proof of my above thesis is that he is not just the target of the hard left and Democrats but the RINO Republicans who I won't dignify as referring to them as being on the right but rather just not as far left as the Democrats. The disease's reemergence is evident to anyone who has bothered to follow this political season in the least. Tuesday's announcement that Sarah Palin is endorsing Trump, immediately following his "I will defend Christianity" speech at Liberty University has brought out a particularly nasty fever ridden flair up of the disease.

Unless she launches into full campaign mode with own tour schedule and numerous joint appearances with Trump, I doubt her endorsement will be long remembered. What the pundit class won't say, is that they are scared shitless that it will have a more immediate, if short term impact in Iowa and give Trump just that much more momentum going into New Hampshire and South Carolina, effectively burying any hopes they still have of derailing Trump or creating the possibility of a brokered convention. If there is one thing you can count on the "experts" for it is that they will never tell you the true motives for their rantings. Otherwise, as John Nance Garner once said, the opinions of Tucker Carlson, Megan McCain, Glen Beck, Rick Wilson etc. etc. "ain't worth a bucket of warm spit."
