In a sprawling speech that addressed everything from background checks to the Senate’s failure to pass a budget to Margaret Thatcher to the price of filling up a truck, Sarah Palin drew raucous applause today at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
Full of shout-outs and theatrics, Palin capitalized on the adoration she has drawn from this audience for many years. In passage after passage, she lauded the Constitution and called on conservatives to find common ground in fighting the federal government, the mainstream press, and Beltway consultants.
At one point, she pulled a Big Gulp soda from under the podium and drank a bit of it. The audience loved it. “Shoot, it’s just pop with lo-cal ice cubes in it!” she said, to laughs.
