Quote of the day: Palin reimagines Green Eggs and Ham

From Sarah Palin’s keynote speech at the American Conservative Union’s annual CPAC conference:

Sarah Palin’s debuted her own version of the classic tale for today’s CPAC audience: “I do not like this Uncle Sam. I do not like his health care scam. I do not like these dirty crooks, or how they lie and cook the books. I do not like when Congress steals, I do not like their crony deals. I do not like this spying, man, I do not like, Oh, Yes we can, I do not like this spending spree, we’re smart, we know there’s nothing 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.

    Someone call Couric and tell her The Quitter has read Green Eggs and Ham.
    Yeah… I know it isn’t “all of them” as indicated the the one who couldn’t hold up a oath of office and it’s taken a long time to prove she did read something… even if it’s Seuss.

    She’s still a embarrassment no matter how one refers to her.

    Enjoyed following the conservative gathering back east. The speeches were compelling and I felt inspired about the future. Having made these positive remarks, I was disappointed that the organizers allowed Palin to speak in such a role of prominence as I felt her message lacked substance and she was what was and not part of the future. To me, she is a hasbeen at best. John McCain did a disservice to our party by selecting her to be his running mate. Sometimes I wonder if her selection was an attempt to bury the conservative wing of our party by embarrassing us.
    Don’t like Palin but love CPAC.

    Sarra Palin is a despicable fraud. She is an embarassment to Alaska and to my Republican party. She is mean-spirited and intellectually void. She diminishes the institution of the presidency with her child like name calling and stupid utterances. As a Republican, I wwouuld be more motivated to vote for the likes of Hollis French or even Les Gara before I would cast a vote for her. I can’t believe that she has any credibility outside of being something to laugh at.

    “By now, and by god, it should have settled permanently in the consciousness of the nation what a huge and untoward gamble with the country John McCain and his campaign took in 2008 when they elevated Sarah Palin from her rightful place on the tundra to the political celebrity she currently enjoys. McCain should pay a heavy price for unleashing this ignorant, two-wheeled bilewagon on the country’s politics. If you think she’s a legitimate political leader, you’re an idiot and a sucker and I feel sorry for you.

    Yesterday she gave a wildly received speech to ring down the curtain at CPAC. The applause, as far as I know, may still be going on. It was as singularly embarrassing a public address as any allegedly sentient primate ever has delivered. It was a disgrace to politics, to rhetoric, to the English language, and to seventh-grade slam books everywhere.

    This ambulatiory bag of rank resentment pulled out all the tricks. The cheap shots; “Aw, John, why the long face?” to the Secretary of State. The sneering, wheedling playground taunting — “You can’t make a phone call without Michelle Obama knowing, ‘This is the third time this week you dialed Pizza Hut Delivery'” — and a full panoply of funny voices that are the trademark of dipshit comics in every two-drink minimum club in America. We got “hope and channng-ey,” and how “some members” of the GOP establishment are saying to us, “Hush, America. Go to sleep, little lambs.” And, in what is being celebrated as the piece de resistance , she turned Green Eggs And Ham into an extended taunt.

    If you laughed, you’re an idiot and I feel sorry for you.”

    Sarah Palin now appeals only to those folks who President Lincoln was referring to in his famous observation which included; ” You can fool some of the people all of the time…”
    She has lost all those who can only be fooled some of the time.
