If you had to choose who would be President right now, and your choices were Donald Trump and Sarah Palin, who would you pick?

My wife asked me this a little while ago, and I'm stumped.

Palin. She has a proven track record of quitting.

I've got some moss growing on my patio that I'd opt for.

Palin in a heartbeat. She's got Trump matched for ignorance and incompetence, but without the extreme narcissism and utter disregard for, god help me, the Republican establishment, and all the civil and diplomatic norms that they embody.

Neither is qualified but Palin isn't a liar and she has some principles. Palin is nowhere near as corrupt either.

Palin.

I was sick of the Donald in the 90's, and it never got better. At least with Palin, when I first heard of her, she was good looking (in a popularity contest kind of way).

They both seem to enjoy the same kind of word salad, Russian dressing and all.

Yeah, it's really no contest. Palin is a subset of the negative attributes of Trump. It would only be better.

Interesting.
I had ignored/forgotten the other clear sign of degeneracy of the American right and just seen Trump as the sole heir of Bush II.

Along these lines; palin wants to and thinks she's doing right, she's just an idiot.

Trump can't give a fuck about anything but himself.

I think you are being unfair there. I am pretty sure that Trump think he is doing the right thing with the muslim ban, cutting immigration and renegotiating trade deals. He is just far more wrong than "Drill Baby Drill" Palin.

She lacks the qualifications and the instincts to be president, but her temperament doesn't completely disqualify her. I'd not expect her to be a wrecking ball in international politics at the very least.

I'd still take a 3rd term of GWB over her though.

Even though I myself believe she has only paid lip service to advancing the cause of Dominionism, Sarah Palin is considered a Dominionist.

Does that help make your choosing any simpler?

Palin and it's not even close. Trump is going to damage America's diplomatic relationships for years to come. He's normalizing Boss Tweed-like corruption again. He's more focused on his personal & family brand than on leading the nation. He's tragically more unfit for the office.

Palin, for many of the reasons above. Plus, she did have 2.5 years experience as governor of Alaska, which honestly is a much better qualification for presidency than being a TV reality show star who brands his own names and manages to lose money with a casino.

I dunno, probably Palin.

I think she may horribly bungle things in other ways, though. I think having the global stage perceive your leader as intensely stupid has a different set of problems than the global stage perceiving your leader as volatile and such.

She's somewhat more socially conservative, isn't she? I'm potentially more inclined to disagree w/ her top priorities than Trump's when it comes down to it. (I don't mind the EPA going away much at all, and the anti-immigration execution is stupid but it doesn't hit me as hard as my friends getting legally married, being able to pee, and etc. But that's just the sad "well if you're going to punch people I'd rather it wasn't me" game...)
