Sarah Palin Reads Green Eggs and Ham

By on 3.10.14 | 3:32PM

Sarah Palin delivered CPAC’s keynote speech on Saturday with wit and feisty charm that ignited the conservatives in the crowd.

Palin had no reservations about attacking Obama and his administration, jabbing at Obamacare, the NSA, and particularly the so-called war on women.

“We know better than to fall for that victimization line,” she said. “But if you have a sister or a friend, you have to set them straight. They entice girls to think they need guys to grow government. That’s not liberation; that’s subjugation.”

Displaying a copy of Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham, Palin changed the words and delivered lines like “I do not like this health care plan.”

She also wasn’t afraid to mock Obama's foreign policy strategy: “Vladimir…I’ve got a phone and I’ve got a pen…I can poke you with my pen – pinkie promise!”

The crowd erupted into cheers and laughter as she quipped about the liberal agenda. Despite her snark, Palin ended with hope and encouraging words for the GOP. "This is a great awakening: The age of Obama is almost over. The end of an error," she said. "It's we, the people—it's because of you that I've never been more optimistic about the future of our nation."
