On Tuesday night Sarah Palin endorsed Donald Trump's presidential bid in a speech that seemed to draw inspiration from the audition stages of The X Factor with a sprinkling of Foghorn Leghorn.
Palin is a longtime supporter of Trump and has praised the business tycoon for "crushing it in the polls".
She has even backed his controversial call for a "complete shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States leading Trump to say he'd "love" having Palin work in his administration if he were elected president.
The Confederacy of Dunces (h/t to our American HuffPost US colleagues)
Rather than suffering through the full 20-minute clip, The Huffington Post UK has kindly done it for you, presenting the 13 most batsh*t crazy moments which began as soon as the 51-year-old took the podium.
The former Republican vice-presidential candidate began with the shocking revelation she'd been in cryogenic stasis since we last saw her.
"Thank you so much. It’s so great to be here in Iowa. We’re here just thawing out."
Palin then dropped some sick beats that only those in the back of the room could hear, much to her delight.
"Mr Trump, you’re right, look back there in the press box. Heads are spinning!"
Speaking of her plans for the future, she then regaled the room with the story of what she said when a wizard and 13 dwarves knocked on her door.
"Yeah, I’ll go, send me, you betcha. I’ll serve."
Suddenly she remembered why she was actually there.
"Are you ready to stump for Trump? I’m here to support the next president of the United States, Donald Trump"
Midway through the speech Palin then felt the need for a short self-assessment of her performance so far.
"Well, and then, funny, ha ha, not funny."
This then led to a defence against accusations she wasn't conservative enough with a phrase we can only assume was stolen from a country rendition of the most violent parts of the Old Testament.
"How ‘bout the rest of us? Right wingin’, bitter clingin’, proud clingers of our guns, our god, and our religions, and our Constitution"
Next up - fashion. Next season we won't wear clothes bit will instead drape ideologies over our shoulders in a one-time only deal.
"They’ve been wearing a, this, political correctness kind of like a suicide vest."
By this point no-one was even sure what she was talking about any more but dear lord, this next one is so bad it barely deserves a funny heading.
"Well, then, we’re talking about our very existence, so no, we’re not going to chill. In fact it’s time to drill, baby, drill down."
To her credit, Palin then got back on track with a succinct analysis of the delicate political situation in the Middle East.
"Where they’re fightin’ each other and yellin’ “Allah Akbar” calling Jihad on each other’s heads for ever and ever."
Her solution? She's going to drop Dukes on them. Quite what Duke thinks about this is anyone's guess.
"Like I’ve said before, let them duke it out and let Allah sort it out."
Palin then gave her nuanced view of trump, the man who battled extensively to stop a wind farm spoiling the views from his exclusive Scottish golf course.
"He’s a multi-billionaire. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But, it’s amazing, he is not elitist at all."
To finish she had a little dig at Obamacare, attempts to introduce gun laws to stop mass murder and ending the war in Iraq.
"He packs up the teleprompters and the selfie-sticks, and the Greek columns, and all that hopey, changey stuff and he heads on back to Chicago."
Bravo Sarah Palin and good luck Trump.
