NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. (WIAT) – Former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin took to the podium Saturday and closed out the Conservative Political Action Conference with a rousing speech.
The former Alaska governor rallied conservative women to get busy and get out the conservative message.
“Let the women of America know our platform, our values,“ Palin said. “It’s independence. It’s work ethic. It’s family, faith and freedom. Be bold in making our case. We’re the heirs of Thatcher and Stanton and Anthony, so stop apologizing and start evangelizing and infiltrating, influencing pop culture.”
Palin also put her own spin on the Dr. Seuss book “Green Eggs and Ham.”
“I do not like this Uncle Sam. I do not like his healthcare scam,” Palin said. “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.”
Palin’s speech wrapped up the three-day event hosted by the American Conservative Union. This year’s event was held at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.
