There’s one thing you can count on with Sarah Palin–she can deliver the goods.
She can deliver a rip-roaring speech. She can deliver punch lines as good as Groucho Marx. And most of all, she delivers to her admirers.
At today’s Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority ” conference in Washington, D.C., the conference organizers saved the best for last.
After hearing from a Who’s Who list of political rising stars like Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, the conference attendees from across the country, stayed to the very end to hear and see Sarah Palin deliver the closing speech.
And what a speech it was.
Right off the bat, she said quite convincingly, “If there’s any protesters here, speak now or forever hold your peace. Facing protesters is something I do very well.” The audience approved with applause and cheers. And there were no protesters.
Palin recalled an encounter she had with a liberal, who was protesting her appearance at an event. He told her that he voted for Obama to prove that he wasn’t a racist. Without a beat, she told him, very matter of factly, “Well next time, vote for someone else to prove you’re not a knucklehead.”
She mentioned that the White House had testified before Congress the other day and they actually bragged that they “used the least untruthful statement.” Palin commented, “Where I’m from, that’s called a lie.”
“Washington is one, hot mess,” she said. “These scandals are coming fast and furious.
“Yes, government spied, officials lied and Americans died. Our government spied on all our phone calls but couldn’t find two pot-smoking, dead beat Bostonians with a hotline to Terrorist Central in Chechnya.” The audience howled with laughter.
Palin went on to praise Tea Partier Betsy Harrison, who testified last week in Washington about being targeted by the IRS.
“Betsy is a mama grizzly. She came to Washington to beg for her rights. Becky is not a victim. She’s a victor. She didn’t come to Washington to apologize. She came to evangelize.
“Becky was treated as an uppity yokel; a dangerous hick who needed to be brought down by an avalanche of red tape.”
To a crowd hungry for red meat, Palin said, “We now have a government that thinks we work for it instead of it working for us. Just for a week, I’d like to see Congress go on cruise control; Ted Cruz control.”
In closing, Palin appeared a bit emotional and teary-eyed when she said, “You are the unsung heroes. Keep up the good fight. We shall, we must, we will restore America.
And then she expressed a happy fathers day to all the dads.
With that, Palin made one more good delivery. She walked off the stage with husband Todd and began mixing with a throng of admirers lined up three-deep along the rope line. She was literally mobbed. It took more than hour but Palin delivered and everyone went home happy.
