Somewhere, Molly Ivins and Hunter Thompson are sharing a beer, shaking their heads about how easy the current crop of political humorists has it…
Sam Clovis called Trump "cancer on conservatism." Then endorsed: http://t.co/FLh88VaCRV But won't say "how much he would be paid" by Trump.

Jennifer Jacobs, in the Des Moines Register article:
… “(Trump) left me with questions about his moral center and his foundational beliefs. … His comments reveal no foundation in Christ, which is a big deal,” evangelical conservative activist Sam Clovis said in an email just 35 days before he quit his job as Republican Rick Perry’s Iowa chairman and signed on with Trump’s campaign.
In the emails, shared by Perry backers Wednesday with The Des Moines Register, Clovis castigated Trump for his past liberal positions and admission that he has never asked for God’s forgiveness for any wrongdoing.
In an interview Wednesday, Clovis verified that he’d written the sharply worded criticisms of Trump, including one email in which he praises Perry for calling Trump a “cancer on conservatism.”…
Clovis defected from Perry’s team at a time when the former Texas governor has been struggling to cover his campaign aides’ salaries.
Iowa Republicans said Wednesday that Clovis’ move raises questions about how he reconciles endorsing Trump with his previous stances and statements, and whether he was motivated less by ideology and more by the promise of a big paycheck from a business mogul who has said he is willing to spend as much as a billion dollars to get elected…
Sarah Palin would really wish you would stop asking about her being a possible Trump running mate. And start treating it like it's a fact.
