Sunday night I started getting some flu symptoms and it went from bad to worse from there (and remains in a holding pattern over “worse”), but I wanted to make sure to mention the big story of the day before quickly returning to the couch, VapoRub and Netflix.

Did you see this one coming?

Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential nominee who became a Tea Party sensation and a favorite of grass-roots conservatives, endorsed Donald J. Trump in Iowa on Tuesday, providing Mr. Trump with a potentially significant boost just 13 days before the state’s caucuses.
