If Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann ran together in 2012, would their T-shirts be made of tiny poison-tipped knives? Tonight, Sean Hannity raised the specter of a Palin-Bachmann ticket. Palin liked the idea, and the crowd went wild!

Tonight, Hannity was live at Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann's Real America BBQ and Family Fun Fair in Minneapolis. ($10,000 got you a picture with the two!) There was some funny analogy about how Obama limiting U.S. nuclear weapons use was like telling a playground bully to beat you up because you weren't going to hit him back. (Which would make sense only if you then pointed to an enormous cache of conventional weapons and stealth bombers and tanks that you had lying next to the jungle gym and said, "except with all of this stuff.")

Then, when Hannity asked Sarah Palin about a Palin-Bachmann ticket she said, "Now that sounds kinda cool." Let us translate Sarah Palin's folksy way of talking for you. What she really said was: "I would like to formally announce my candidacy for the 2012 presidential campaign. Let me introduce your future vice president: Michele Bachmann."

Palin-Bachmann 2012. Really rolls off the tongue, right into the pit of the stomach, then out the sphincter in a fear-colored turd! But very strategic, if you think about it: Sarah Palin would be able to appeal to the inner three circles of Hell with her nonsensical commonsense rhetoric, and Bachmann could win over the outer six with her virulent anti-health care campaigning. But why not Bachmann-Palin? Shoot, it's too hard to choose: Let's just elect them both as co-presidents.
