Sarah Palin's 'Green Eggs and Ham': VIDEO


Sarah Palin took a page from Ted Cruz's 'Green Eggs and Ham' playbook at CPAC and proved she's still got the kind of knack for vapid conservative showmanship that makes wingnuts get on their feet and cheer, the L.A. Times reports:

Unburdened by the rules that keep serious politicians tethered to serious messages, her task was to toss red meat to a ravenously appreciative conservative crowd Saturday at the closing session of the American Conservative Union's annual CPAC conference.

By my count, her speech got more standing ovations than the one delivered Friday by CPAC favorite Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who won the CPAC presidential straw poll.


Here's Palin's full speech if, for some reason, that's how you want to spend your Sunday:

  3. I was going to say that she looks like she was rode hard and hung out wet. So I will.

  4. People paid a lot of good money to hear what they want to hear, even if they already know what they want to hear and have heard it all before.

  5. Someone needs to tell Sarah (or her stylist) not to put her makeup on with a trowel.
    Man, she looks ready to dance the pole.

  6. She totally ripped that off from a Facebook meme that's been going around for well over a year. She's the true definition of a conservative parrot -- not only does she repeat their same tired talking points, but she can't even come up with something original to say.

  7. I am just surprised she didn't stop and walk off mid-speech.
    The only thing Sister Sarah is good at -is quitting-

  8. She is an excellent vapid, conservative showman. The conservatives want her in office (evidently any office) so bad they are willing to overlook her lack of a brain. I wish she would get nominated for GOP president, maybe with Bachmann. That would be a train wreck worthy of the Comedy Channel.

  9. I just wonder when the moderate, rational Republicans are going to get some balls and start putting these wingnuts out in the cold. Come ON Republican party, grow up, or get out of politics, these types of mouth frothing antics are getting your party no where. Young people look at these antics and see no one willing to lead them into a future of growth.

  10. with Sarah Palin, isn't it more like rotten eggs and spoiled ham?!?!!?

  11. I want to know where I can get my hair did with a manual egg beater. Her hair person is either blind or (s)he hates Palin.

  12. Sarah Who? Oh yeah - half a term as governor of our 47th most populous state. And dumber than Dan Quayle though she is cunning in a vapid sort of way. The MILF thing she was trying to work has flown south. If we ignore her, she can go back to selling hot dogs at the soccer game.

  13. Thank you, John McCain, for visiting this cancer upon our nation.

  14. Hahaha! Whadda witch! Trial by water, I say!

  15. In case it's not obvious to anyone the whole CPAC is just one big self-masturbation for the uptight Republicans.

  16. You have to admit, addressing the CPAC crowd like you would when you're putting a 6-yr old to bed is just perfect.

    They're crybabies who understand little and throw tantrums when they don't get their way.

  17. The Anita Bryant of our age. See you next Tuesday.

    Don't you get it?
    Sarah Palin was able to READ!!

    Now do you get the applause? Brava Ms. Palin. Next, let's try and read the Constitution and maybe learn how to look up words in the dictionary! :D

  19. Reading at a child's level to people at a child's emotional level...

    Posted by: tranquilo | Mar 9, 2014 6:17:45 PM

  20. I do not like when Congress stills;
    I do not like their crony dills.

    This is brilliant poetry. The use of the verb 'to still' to indicate stagnation. And how they must spend their time eating pickles instead of doing the people's business.

    Unless she said "Congress steals"/"crony deals", in which case, nevermind...

  21. And "I do not like Oh yes we can" I overreading racism into this, or did she mock a certain style of speaking, especially with the snap and the neck movement?

    Posted by: bravo | Mar 9, 2014 7:47:04 PM

  22. Sarah also misses the point of a simple children's book: Once convinced to actually TRY Green Eggs and Ham--he LIKES them!

    Posted by: Jeff Kurtti | Mar 9, 2014 8:27:01 PM

  23. It's ironic: she looks just like a drag old drag queen.

    Posted by: Geoff | Mar 9, 2014 8:27:06 PM

  24. I'm sorry, I would like to watch, but really life's too short.

    Posted by: emjayay | Mar 9, 2014 10:03:53 PM

  25. Ha, ha, ha. I guess Ms Palin and CPAC want to make sure Obama doesn't get a third term.

    The jokes on them, if they read the Constitution they would find out he can only have two!

    Now what else don't you like? Besides black Presidents? Gay athletes? Gay marriage? Openly gay candidates winning elections?
