Sarah Palin’s Solution To The California Drought? Just Build More Reservoirs, Duh! (VIDEO)

Last month, while everyone was busy with the erupting scandal surrounding Josh Duggar, Sarah Palin announced on her television channel that she had the solution to the California drought.

Sarah Palin has said and done so many stupid things that it’s impossible to rank them all. This, however, is one of the most memorable in a long time.

Palin begins the video by noting that California is “such an ideal state” and it’s “close to perfection” with one major exception: the politicians. One assumes she forgot that Ronald Reagan comes from California.

She then restates the obvious:

California has been suffering from a long-term drought; most people are aware of that. Governor Brown’s answer, though, to that drought is to impose a 25% water reduction on California’s cities and towns. His main target are [sic] those really nice landscapes and lawns on golf courses and campuses and cemeteries and private property, your yards! Well, as long as those, long showers that maybe you take. [sic]

Just think, for $9.95 a month or $99.95 a year, this insight and wisdom can be yours. That she couldn’t be bothered to edit shows how much she cares.

God forbid he target the golf courses. All the water used on those golf courses — for instance, the 124 golf courses in Palm Springs, or the luscious green grasses in Rancho Santa Fe — is water that isn’t used for bathing, drinking, or food. Because golf and green lawns are just that important.

But never fear, Sarah Palin has a solution:

You might ask, though, why don’t they just fix the infrastructure problem, why don’t they just build more reservoirs and plants? After all, California is a coastal state. It’s got a whole ocean right there, water all around ya.

Does this woman think that reservoirs come pre-filled? Am I the only one who imagines her saying, “Just go buy a bunch of Aquafina from Walmart and fill it up with that!”

People cannot drink salt water. But Palin is content to blame environmentalists for this, because they remind the world that desalination plants need incredible amounts of energy. And California is not in the best place as far as electricity or energy is concerned.

You can’t use salt water for irrigation, either; although I can certainly see Palin suggesting something like Gatorade — it has electrolytes, after all, and that’s what plants crave.
