Sarah Palin’s Bizarre Iowa Speech Gets Thanks — From The Democrats

Shortly after declaring that she’s “seriously interested” in running for president in 2016, Sarah Palin delivered a confusing speech that was panned by many, even some on the right.

Speaking at the Iowa Freedom Summit in Des Moines on Saturday, the former Alaska governor and one-time vice presidential candidate delivered a speech that John Fund of the National Review described as “meandering and often bizarre.”

Here’s an excerpt:

“Things must change for our government. Look at it. It isn’t too big to fail. It’s too big to succeed! It’s too big to succeed, so we can afford no retreads or nothing will change with the same people and same policies that got us into the status quo. Another Latin word, status quo, and it stands for, ‘Man, the middle-class everyday Americans are really gettin’ taken for a ride.’ That’s status quo, and GOP leaders, by the way, y’know the man can only ride ya when your back is bent. So strengthen it. Then the man can’t ride ya, America won’t be taken for a ride, because so much is at stake and we can’t afford politicians playing games like nothing more is at stake than, oh, maybe just the next standing of theirs in the next election.”

In response to the speech, Democratic National Committee communications director Mo Elleithee issued a two-word statement:

“Thank you!”

The New York Daily News reports that Palin’s teleprompter froze, forcing her to ad-lib some of her remarks.

Palin also referred to President Barack Obama as “an overgrown little boy.” And in a clip posted online by Right Wing Watch, Palin attacked the left for being racist and sexist.

“Really, it’s kind of Orwellian, observing how that works, that rule of Saul Alinsky’s, no doubt, that the left employs. Disgusting charges, from the left. Reverse them — for it is they who point a finger not realizing that they have triple that amount of fingers pointing right back at them, revealing that they are the ones who really discriminate and divide on color and class and sex. We call them out. We don’t let them get away with it.”

The reaction on Twitter was not particularly encouraging:

And yet…. Conroy also reported that Palin left the stage to a standing ovation and the Taylor Swift song, “Shake It Off.”
