Conservative America’s favorite game show host is considering a new line of work.
With the announcement Monday that Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel is being shown to the White House door, “Wheel of Fortune” master of ceremonies Pat Sajak announced to his Twitter followers that he’s thinking about throwing his hat into the ring for the job.
Looking for something part time. Just a couple of months during holiday hiatus. Thinking about Secretary of Defense.

Now, considering that the Obama administration and its tight-knit advisers don’t have much interest in a real secretary of defense — which is how Hagel got hired in the first place — Sajak might be dead on about the “part time” nature of the job.
But considering also that Sajak is well known for his conservative views — and his generally poor view of this administration — it seems damned unlikely he’d be considered. (Qualifications are irrelevant in an administration that appointed a political hack to be the Ebola czar. And nobody’s heard of him for a while anyway.)
That doesn’t mean Sajak’s followers didn’t get some ideas from his Twitter posting.
@patsajak There’s some unfinished business in Benghazi you could tackle? 🙂

@patsajak You could always check with the White House temp service.

Since a doormat of a defense secretary is all President Obama seems to be interested, the temp office might be the place for Sajak to start.
But fans had some other ideas — for Sajak and his lovely co-host.
@patsajak Maybe you and Vanna can straighten out that POTUS teleprompter and its mixed messages…

@patsajak I think Vanna could do a much better job than Susan Rice too!

@miko409@patsajak Better than John Kerry in my opinion.

Well, saying anyone could do a better job than Kerry at anything other than windsurfing isn’t much of a compliment. But one Twitter user had the ultimate reason Sajak couldn’t make it as a secretary of defense — even part-time.
@patsajak Not qualified — you’re too tough.
