Sarah Palin has a choice description of the imaginative powers of California Democrats Jerry Brown and Barbara Boxer: “They act like they’re permanent residents of some unicorn ranch in fantasy land.” The occasion was a paid appearance Thursday in San Jose, where the former Alaska governor addressed a cheering crowd but didn’t mention Brown or Boxer’s opponents — Republicans Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina — by name.
“California’s got it tough,” Palin said. “To bring back workers who’ve lost their jobs, that’s one great challenge, but also to employ all the new workers that are coming along, California would need to create more than 4 million jobs over the next 10 years to keep up. Does anyone seriously think that the liberal policies of Pelosi and Reid and Obama — heck, a Boxer and a Brown — are going to be able to turn things around and get the job done?”
As the crowd chanted “Nooo,” Palin brought forth the unicorn ranch metaphor, which garnered appreciative laughter.
Given that neither Senate candidate Fiorina, whom Palin has endorsed, nor gubernatorial hopeful Whitman are expected to appear at any of Palin’s three stops this week in the Golden State, the San Francisco Chronicle opined
that the pilgrimage’s purpose is to raise GOP enthusiasm generally, and to better position Palin for a 2012 presidential run.
