For the second time in the past three years, Sarah Palin gave the Keynote address to CPAC. Her speech drew a few standing ovations, but perhaps the loudest was a parody of the Dr. Seuss book, "Green Eggs and Ham."
Using it as a tribute to Ted Cruz and his reading of the book during a Senate filibuster, Palin's version of the children's classic took no prisoners as she blasted Republican Congressional leaderships, President Obama, and the mainstream media:
Speaking of y'all, Texas, thank you. Liberty needs a congress on 'Cruz control.' Something did happen: The awakening began. Senator Ted Cruz helped keep them awake. His filibuster worked in waking people up to the folly of a government takeover of another one-sixth of our economy. He forced debate. He told colleagues it was time to stand up and use the tools of the constitution, the power of the purse, to fulfill their campaign promises and to stop Obamacare. But our army bolted. We had hoped that they were reloading, but instead they retreated. And worse, they joined the lapdogs in the lame stream to trash the foot soldiers who had fought for America. Ted Cruz had a clever way of doing it too, Dr. Seuss. Who'd a thunk? Who'd a thunk? Good idea. Maybe I will add ad-lib something. There he was reading it on the floor of the Senate. And through the airwaves he was telling his kids, I am thinking of you. I am thinking of all our kids. I have five kids. I have five kids so reading 'Green Eggs And Ham,' over all those years to each one I totally have it memorized especially by the time Trig was born. I had to spice it up a bit. Little Trig, lucky little fella', his bedtime story now it goes something like this.
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 feels. 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 that 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 wont take it nope, nope, nope....
