Sarah Palin's CPAC Speech Might As Well Be The Next Dr. Seuss Book

Former GOP vice presidential candidate and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) took full advantage of her CPAC platform on Saturday, rewriting Dr. Seuss' classic "Green Eggs And Ham" with her own version on the Obama presidency.

A few minutes into her speech, Palin took out a copy of the book, teasing it as something she would read to her youngest child, Trig Palin.

"Little Trig, lucky little fellow," she said. "His bedtime story goes something like this."

I do not like this, Uncle Sam.

I do not like this healthcare scam.

I do not like these dirty crooks

Or how they cry and cook the books

I do not like when Congress steals

I do not like their crony deals

I do not like 'oh yes, we can'

I do not like this spending spree

We're smart, we know nothing's 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!

Watch Palin's reading above. More from CPAC below:

More On Palin's Biting CPAC Speech

From HuffPost's Elise Foley:

Sarah Palin delivered a biting, folksy speech to close out the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday, going after GOP consultants, the NSA, Obamacare, liberals and the media.

Many of her digs in the 30-minute speech were targeted squarely at President Barack Obama, whom she criticized for his leadership and mocked for his "hope and change" 2008 campaign messages.

"That 'hope and change,' it went from a catchy campaign slogan to a reality, and along the way, 'hope and change,' 'yes we can,' it became 'no, you can't,'" she said. "No, you can't log onto the website. No, you can't keep your health care."
