Other great lines from her speech:

The midterm election: "Nov. 2 is right around the corner. I can see it from my house!"

Shovel-ready projects: "Now we know what they were shoveling, and it wasn't asphalt."

The Delta smelt, a small fish on the endangered list which has caused cutoff of water to millions of state residents: "Where I come from we call that bait."

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! :)

(If I can remember my mythology) If it is true that only virgins can have ownership of unicorns, California will not have a run on that.

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!

She’ll be at Perspective in Sacramento tomorrow. Should come up with some doozies for that one, too.

“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.

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.
