We’d call it a sign of the apocalypse if the deadline for that hadn’t already come and gone: Sarah Palin and Donald Trump will meet tonight in New York City. Sources tell ABC News Palin reached out to the Donald, and they will meet at his Fifth Avenue apartment in Trump Tower. Then they’ll dine at a Times Square pizzeria. Why? Because “she wanted pizza,” a source says of Palin. But apparently she doesn’t want elitist pizza; the low-key establishment they plan to visit is just “one step above McDonald’s,” according to Trump’s top political aide.

Palin, of course, is in the middle of her bus tour. CNN reports that husband Todd made some rare comments to reporters today, noting that if his wife decides to run for president, their family will be ready. "This family has been tested," he said. "These kids grew up around the mayor of small town. Local politics is in your face every day. It's not like you get on a plane and fly to DC or Juneau." (More Sarah Palin bus tour stories.)
