Default Green Eggs and Ham by Sara Palin

You have to love this woman. I love her verson on Green Eggs and Ham.

"I do not like this Uncle Sam. I do not like his health care scam. I do not like -- oh, just you wait -- 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."

This woman is brilliant. No one writes a speech like this and is dumb. See the video it is very funny.

Yeah, she is really brilliant.....

Green Eggs and Ham was a poem about someone who did not like something he had never tried and after trying it loved it.....

Her use of this, in this particular context, means that she did not even understand the moral of the poem to begin with.....

Don't think she was trying to be philosophical with it, it was around Dr. Suess's birthday and that particular poem was the best one for her to complete her shtick with...nothing more or less.

No one except the people in charge love tyranny. The difference is we have a choice for now. You can continue to support people who what to remove your choices or keep justifying it (the easy way out) and be a slave to the people you defend (I know how this sounds). The choice is yours WW2.

Here is another great speech. This time from Dr. Ben Carson. If all you do is watch the last 5 minutes that would be great.

Who said I supported them? I am just pointing out that Palin is a fucking retard.

Maybe somebody wrote the speech for her? She does deliver in her own way though.

Same mistake she made when referencing Robert Frosts "Mending Wall"

"Good fences make good neighbors"... was her point

In fact Frost was being ironic in the poem. He was saying "Good neighbors don't need fences. But the neighbor is stuck in his ways"

She doesn't seem to understand nuance or irony.

She doesn't understand a lot of things Jim. McCain made a grave mistake when he picked her. I think she caused a turn away of votes at the thought of her sitting in the Oval Office. I seriously doubt that she even wrote the Green Egg story. But, give credit where it is due, she looks great on TV.
