I don’t care about CPAC, and at this point I’m ambivalent about Sarah Palin. But as ever, it’s fun to watch lefties seethe with rage at her very existence.
Over at Esquire, which I think used to be a magazine or something, Charles P. Pierce sputters:
By now, and by god, it should have settled permanently in the consciousness of the nation what a huge and untoward gamble with the country John McCain and his campaign took in 2008 when they elevated Sarah Palin from her rightful place on the tundra to the political celebrity she currently enjoys. McCain should pay a heavy price for unleashing this ignorant, two-wheeled bilewagon on the country’s politics. If you think she’s a legitimate political leader, you’re an idiot and a sucker and I feel sorry for you.
Yesterday she gave a wildly received speech to ring down the curtain at CPAC…
This ambulatiory bag of rank resentment pulled out all the tricks. The cheap shots; “Aw, John, why the long face?” to the Secretary of State. The sneering, wheedling playground taunting — “You can’t make a phone call without Michelle Obama knowing, ‘This is the third time this week you dialed Pizza Hut Delivery’” — and a full panoply of funny voices that are the trademark of dipshit comics in every two-drink minimum club in America.
There’s much, much more of the same, but you get the idea. It’s the most savagely misogynistic leftist rant since Keith Olbermann described Michelle Malkin as a “mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it.”* All in a day’s work for Mr. Pierce. (With apologies to The Young Ones: His middle name is Rick. The “P” is silent.)
I thought her “Green Eggs and Ham” bit was kind of annoying, even though I agree with the message:
But at least it tripped up Evan McMurry at Mediaite. Check out this amusing bit of bumbling (strikethrough in the original):
Palin’s Green Eggs and Ham CPAC Bit Was Ripped Off a Chain Email
At CPAC this weekend, Sarah Palin got some howls for her new rendering of Green Eggs and Ham, now all about Obamacare and those crooks in Washington and the media. While many were quick to point out that Dr. Seuss’ book ends with the stubborn protagonist liking green eggs/Obamacare, the blog Reading is for Snobs nabbed another angle: those “new” lyrics are from a chain email that’s been circulating since at least 2010…
In her intro, Palin announced she’d “had to spice [the book] up a bit,”
but neverand she did allude to the fact that the “spice” came from an online source.
[Correction: This piece has been updated to reflect that, later in her speech, Palin alluded to the fact that she obtained her Green Eggs and Ham routine from an online source.]
Other than that, this is some solid work.
Yeah, it’s not really ripped off if she acknowledges it’s somebody else’s material. Now all McMurry needs to do is make the minor addition of “Not” to that headline and he’s golden.
Hope he enjoys Twitter today:

No matter what you think of Sarah Palin, she serves a vital function by drawing out the soul-deep ugliness within so many lefties and showing us what a pack of woman-hating creeps they really are. There’s a war on women, alright. And they’re the ones leading the charge.
