She represents everything libtards hate in women you know: beauty, family, guns, faith, liberty, and brains. Yes, brains. Sarah Palin spoke earlier today at CPAC and it was awesome.
When it was time for Sarah to speak, the crowd was shocked to see Texas Sen. Ted Cruz walk out onstage. Cruz said he was there to introduce Palin himself ahead of his keynote speech later in the afternoon. He reminded the crowd of Sarah Palin’s role in helping our current roster of young, conservative rock stars – like Cruz, Rubio, Paul, Scott, Toomey, Haley and more – get elected in the first place. He said this:
“The mainstream media wants us to be timid and hide in a corner. And the mainstream media is absolutely convinced that women cannot be conservatives, and if they are, they especially cannot shoot really big guns and hunt grizzly bears. That’s why Governor Sarah Palin drives the mainstream media batcrap crazy.”
A fun moment came when Sarah Palin was talking about her husband Todd, she said “He’s got the rifle, I’ve got the rack” which is a line from the country western song by Dustin Lynch called “She Cranks My Tractor.” While the audience went to its feet on that line, she took a Big Gulp soda from behind the lectern and sipped from a straw, noting that it was OK since New York City Nanny Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his chronic overreach of authority was nowhere around. The crowd went nuts. Me too.
So, here’s Sarah Palin’s full speech at CPAC 2013:
“The next election is 20 months away. Now is the time to furlough the consultants, and tune out the pollsters, send the focus groups home and toss the political scripts. Because if we truly know what we believe, we don’t need professionals to tell us.”
I still am a Sarah Palin fan. She looked and sounded great didn’t she? Her energy level had the crowd up and on their feet. She threw fearless punches at Obama, liberals, and Vichy Republicans that landed, hard. I’m thinking we should have Big Gulp moments now – everywhere across the country – just because we know how much the left will hate it.
