Sarah Palin Is in our Midst

The world just can't get enough of Jersey politics.

Sarah Palin, whose precise purpose in life has become increasingly unclear, has endorsed Cory Booker’s Senate opponent Steve Lonegan. (Add this to the list of dubiously useful endorsements.) Here’s the money quote from Palin:

“Palin said during Booker’s tenure in Newark, ‘unemployment nearly doubled, taxes skyrocketed, and violent crime increased.’ ‘But in fairness, Newark Mayor Cory Booker may not have noticed these facts between his constant tweeting and trips to Hollywood,’ she quipped.”

Oh, really Sarah Palin? You of all people are going to call out someone for being a celebrity politician? [Star-Ledger]
