“Sarah Palin for Speaker of the House!!!”
You might want to try “Sarah Palin for Representative in the House from Arizona” first, since that is first step to Speaker. Or possibly a Senator for a bigger vote to help out the House, that now has a Republican Majority.
We need to reclaim the Senate in 2014 to actually get anything done!

Any Speaker of the House does not have to be a member of Congress, the convention is that they are.
The Speaker of the House is the presiding officer of the chamber. The office was established in 1789 by Article I, Section 2 of the United States Constitution, which states in part, “The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker...” The current Speaker is John Boehner, a Republican who represents Ohio’s 8th congressional district. The Constitution does not require that the Speaker be an elected House Representative, though all Speakers have been an elected Member of Congress.
Sarah Palin would make a great Speaker of the House of Representatives.
