My son bauerpauer and I just returned from Sarah’s talk - it was terrific!

She also liked an audience member’s answer of “pixie dust” when she asked how some unfunded mandate would be paid for.

nice tip of her cap to the Giants, too! “Giants baseball: Torture!”

Ah, I see the “pixie dust” reference was captured on tape on the website! :)

I’ve listened to several of Palin’s speech for the past few weeks and the jokes changes. Is OBama still using the same old joke, about the Slirpy

I was about 3 seats away from the fellow who said “pixie dust” and what was funny was that he said it in a normal voice that I heard, but didn’t expect that Sarah would have heard it on stage as we were about 12 rows back. She must have great ears or the acoustics in that hall are near perfect.

We were in the VERY last row! It was cool that when my son and I outside were chatting with Young Aaron and another friend who I didn’t know had attended, Brian Sussman and his assistant came out, said hi, swapped hugs and handshakes and then they wandered off to the KSFO van. A very nice day.

And it was nice to see the five lovely young ladies who sang God Bless America and the national anthem out in the lobby - I hadn’t seen their mom since a homeschool convention a few months back. There were so many people that I recognized from the Conservative Forum, the Campus Liberty Alliance, and the 912 and Tea Party groups - old home week!

Her humor reflects her strength to stand against the pundits, and it connects to the average person at a gut level that no other political personality can even start to approach. From this the basis of her leadership springs. Bachmann is a close second, but I haven’t heard that she can deliver truth packets with the humor that Sarah does.

Palin: “California would need to create more than 4 million jobs over the next 10 years just 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 this around and get the job done? NO! They act like they’re permanent residents of some unicorn ranch in Fantasy land, if they really think they are going to be able to turn it around with the liberal policies that they want to continue!”

LOL!

“Sarah Palin: The most qualified presidential candiate of 2008 hands down. The rest of them were just mere senators.”


Agreed 100%
She is disparaged by pundits and DC connected pols precisely because she is competent, and connects with the people, and therefore powerful in her own right, and ... this is the most important ingredient, she is 100% not corrupted by money and power. It's the last fact that motivates each and everyone of the people who bad mouths her. If The Usurper, a complete empty suit, can go without scrutiny, and yet she is criticized for being lightweight - whereas in reality she is so heavy weight that elites are scared to death of her. JMHO

Yes, but Perspectives is sold out. It’s been a pretty big deal in Sacramento for about 15 years.

Along with Sarah, Howard Dean will be there, along with a couple of feel-good dudes.

Tom Sullivan of Fox has been the MC since it’s inception.

“Where I come from we call that bait.”

I wonder how many of these come out of her cute little head. I think, like Reagan, they probably do.

I remember the one press conference he gave, and the environmentalists were slamming him to do more. And he says, off the cuff:

“These people won’t be happy unless the White House is a big bird’s nest.”

I think she definitely has the same sense of humor....

BUT THIS IS NOT SURPRISING IS IT FOLKS? UNLIKE THE IMPOSTER IN THE WH, SHE’S ONE OF US, AND BEING AN AMERICAN YOU’RE BORN WITH A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR.

“Bait” is an old joke, but her application of it to the insane situation in CA where a little fish is preventing people from getting water is timely and a great tie-in to local issues.

You can tell that she has been studying Reagan’s very effective use of humor, learning from the master.

Excellent. These remind me of one of the greatest movie scenes ever with Rodney Dangerfield in the Econ class of “Back to School”, and its ending:

“Not withstaning Mr. Melon’s comments, the next question for us is where to build our factory.”

“... How about Fantasy Land?!?”

Perfect.

Sorry for the late reply - I spent yesterday at the Pleasanton Tea Party. :)

The performing arts center was sold out - I don’t know its capacity, maybe 2-3 thousand? There were no empty seats that I could see. We sat in the very last row. :)
