Sarah Palin Plunges into California’s Water Wars
There’s a popular saying, “the less you know about a problem, the easier the solution is.”
Enter Sarah Palin. Fights over water have been a huge part of California’s history. Farmers say they don’t get enough water to grow their crops. Others accuse farmers of wasting the water they get. Cities are demanding more water for their growing populations. And some people don’t want endangered species to go extinct “so people in L.A. can wash their cars.”
It’s a volatile issue; always has been. It's pretty tacky to deliberately stir shit up — figuratively throwing a lit match onto a pile of oily rags — by spewing out a few polarizing soundbites to a selected audience. But if you're a phony has-been who refuses to fade away, the urge must be overpowering.
In ultra-conservative central California, there's been a backlash against the 3-inch-long Delta Smelt, the latest endangered species to get in the way of Big Ag profits. Sarah Palin to the rescue:
Sarah you Ignorant Slut.
