Sarah Palin packed the house at CPAC last night as the last speaker of the convention. The former Governor of Alaska seems to know just what will resonate with her audience and she’s not afraid to take on those in her own party who have failed to speak on behalf of the people. In one of the highlights of her speech she mentioned how members of her own party failed to stand up against Obamacare but she highlighted Ted Cruz’s filibuster last year in his attempt to appeal the Affordable Care Act. “Thank you Texas because liberty needs a congress on Cruz control”, she stated. Then she displayed Dr. Seuss’ book “Green Eggs and Ham” and reminded the audience how Senator Ted Cruz read a book during his filibuster to his children since he was not able to say “Good-night” to them. And then Palin gave her own version of “Green Eggs and Ham” and teased it as a version that she reads to her youngest child Trig. “Little Trig, Lucky little fellow. His bedtime story now goes something like this”, she quipped.
Her version went like this:
I do not like this, Uncle Sam.
I do not like this healthcare scam.
I do not like these dirty crooks
Or how they cry and cook the books
I do not like when Congress steals
I do not like their crony deals
I do not like ‘oh yes, we can’
I do not like this spending spree
We’re smart, we know nothing’s free
I do not like reporters’ smug replies
When I complain about their lies
I do not like this kind of hope
And we won’t take it
Nope, nope, nope!
The applause roared for Palin’s witty version of a favorite children’s book and Conservatives were reminded just why we appreciate Sarah Palin. She champions the voice of the people and uses her own voice and witty personality instead of the humdrum of political rhetoric we are so often used to hearing on the political spectrum. Thanks Sarah for spicing it up!
