Sarah Palin served up a generous helping of conservative red meat today, comparing President Obamato white-collar criminal Bernie Madoff, mocking New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his support of a jumbo soda ban and criticizing the GOP’s post-election attempt at “putting a fresh coat of rhetorical paint on our party” rather than focusing on “restoring the trust of the American people.”
Palin delivered a series of memorable one-liners:
On gun control: “Background checks? Yeah, I guess to learn more about a person’s thinking and associations and intentions. More background checks?” she said. “Dandy idea, Mr. President – should have started with yours.”
On gun ownership: “You should have seen what Todd got me for Christmas. Well, It wasn’t that exciting. It was a metal rack, case for hunting rifles to put on the back of a four-wheeler. Then though, I had to get something for him to put in the gun case, right. So, this go around, he’s got the rifle, I got the rack.”
On Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s large soda ban: Palin held up a Big Gulp, sipped from a straw and said, “Bloomberg is not around, our big gulps are safe. We’re cool. Shoot, it’s just pop with low-cal ice-cubes in it.”
On the current state of politics in Washington: “We don’t have leadership coming out of Washington, we have reality television.”
I like that last line A LOT! Let’s say it together, shall we?
“We don’t have leadership coming out of Washington, we have reality television.”
No matter which side of this godforsaken political fence you sit on, you HAVE to agree with that statement, no matter WHO said it!
