Sarah Palin surprised everyone on April Fool’s Day when she announced she was running to fill the at-large Alaska House seat left by the late Rep. Don Young. And for the past week, she’s been busy campaigning.
Yesterday, the former vice presidential candidate/Masked Singer contestant was cruising through downtown Juneau when she apparently spotted a
panhandler local man with a cardboard sign that read “Sarah PaLin House Seat”.
“Right on! Thanks for the support in Juneau today. Love the sign! Help us crank out more signs across Alaska,” she tweeted, along with the photo of the guy.

Palin immediately won Donald Trump‘s endorsement after announcing her political comeback last week, but she has struggled to win any favor with other important Republicans, mainly Sen. Lisa Murkowski.
When asked about Palin’s candidacy by CNN, Alaska’s senior senator said: “We’ve got 50 names that Alaskans will have the opportunity to choose from. A lot of really good qualified individuals that nobody else is talking about back here. Back home, they are. So this is your own kind of bubble. I’m just telling you: You are not in Alaska’s bubble, because Alaskans are talking about the others.”
Now, the responses to Palin’s tweet…
You LOVE this sign?!

Oh, it’s the local guy that wears the crudely stitched together animal pelt (can’t even tell what animal, looks suspiciously domestic) and threatens strangers with a knife!

So, you’ve got the homeless vote locked up?
