Sarah Palin — well-known in her own right for writing some interesting things — took on the role of Dr. Seuss at the March 8 CPAC meeting in an effort to skewer Washington politics and President Barack Obama’s health care law.
During the meeting, Palin touched on everything from the role of women in the Republican Party to crony capitalism, according to a report from the Los Angeles Times, but by and large Palin’s speech will most be remembered for Sarah’s rewriting of the Dr. Seuss classic Green Eggs and Ham.
Palin set up the delivery of her new version of the book by saying that with five kids, she’s read the book numerous times. Palin then proceeded to read her new version:
“I do not like this Uncle Sam. I do not like his healthcare 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.”
Immediately upon finishing her selection, Palin received a raucous standing ovation from the crowd of conservative activists. Of course, Sarah’s reading of her new poem is not the only time the Green Eggs and Ham has been in the spotlight in recent months.
Perhaps Palin’s writing of a new version of the book can be attributed to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R). Cruz — you may remember — actually read from the book during his much-ballyhooed filibuster against Obamacare last fall.
Regardless of how Sarah Palin got the idea to rewrite the book, the message Palin delivered in the address she gave apparently resonated with the crowd, given the fact that Palin received multiple standing ovations during her address.
The Daily Caller reported that Sarah was persistent in empowering those in attendance to stand up against decisions they don’t support.
“Americans are not quite as obedient as they thought we were. See, they set up a lot of hoops, making us pay for insurance that we don’t want and don’t need. Telling us there is nothing to see in Benghazi… But we did not jump through those hoops like we were supposed to. It’s like ya’ll went rogue.”
