Sarah Palin hit all the laugh lines in her speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday afternoon, bringing the audience to its feet perhaps a half-dozen times. At points, Palin simply jumped between one-liners.
Jumping between one-liners means free-associates for laughs.Â And Peterson means that in a good way.Â Well, as good as you can mean by that.Â And when did steal the show come to take the place of upstages all?Â Oh, and here’s the obligatory Orwellian moment when Palin expresses just how serious she is:
â€œWeâ€™re not here to dedicate ourselves to new talking points coming from D.CWeâ€™re not here to put a fresh coat of rhetorical paint on our party,â€ she said. â€œWeâ€™re here to restore America, and the rest is just theatrics.â€
Yes, says the person with no political agenda beyond talking points and who simply jumps between one liners.
