“Mama Grizzly” and reality tv star and 1/2 ex-governor of Alaska and also-ran candidate for Vice President Sarah Palin appeared at a Republican National Committee fundraiser in Anaheim. She did not endorse Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman nor Republican Senate candidate Carly “It’s Better To Get Fired Than Live With The Uncertainty” Fiorina. Neither of the Republican candidates appeared at the fund raiser. Because Sarah Palin was going to be there. And Sarah Palin is the kiss of death to any serious Republican running for office.
I wonder how she will demonize Brown as she did Poizner? When he was governor the state economy grew faster than at any time in history, employment and wages were high, and the state government actually worked. She could talk about his time as mayor in Oakland, except crime went down, revenues increased, and downtown was cleaned-up. Maybe she could attack him for being Attorney General, but that would raise the infamous failed Republican attempt to use state law to declare him ineligable. It would also bring-up the massive electoral margins he won. She could try to raise the Norman Hsu affair – but they got their brains beat out on that one, too.
What does Whitman bring to the office? She knows how to run Internet auctions. That’s not even as impressive as being governor of Alaska for half a term.
