Former half-term Alaska Governor and current Fox News commentator Sarah Palin appeared at the CPAC conference over the weekend and got a huge applause when she read a conservative remake of Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham.
The Obamacare-bashing version begins with, "I do not like this Uncle Sam. I do not like his heath care scam" (video below).
According to CrooksandLiars.com, Palin mentioned, ”I saw a couple lines on the Internet, and I winged the other ones,” but she actually used most of the rhyme, which has been floating around the web since at least 2010 when it was posted by the Washington Free Beacon and was still on the web in 2013, noted The Political Hat.
Mediaite.com noted that in the Dr. Seuss version, the character ends up liking green eggs and ham, which is not so in the anti-health care conservative parody.
