Former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin left conservatives rolling with laughter on the final day of CPAC Saturday with a rendition of Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs and Ham" filled with jabs at the Obama administration.
Palin, who tackled a number of hot-button issues during her lively CPAC presentation, recalled Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz's effort to defund Obamacare through a filibuster in which he read "Green Eggs and Ham" to his young daughters who were watching at home.
She explained that she had taken the book and "spiced it up a little" for her own disabled son Trig. She then entertainingly delivered the spiced up reading to the clamoring crowd.
"I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like his healthcare scam," she began to wild applause.
"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," she continued.
"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," she ended.
