The 16 Days of Palin at CPAC: Day Two the Entrance

This is the 2nd of a series of posts on Sarah Palin’s CPAC speech, The first in the series is here.

After a mon­tage of images on the big Screen Sarah Palin was announced and entered the stage.

And the crowd went absolutely wild.

Because I was part of the 2nd batch of press I was still stand­ing to the side. While that pre­cludes any­thing but a long zoomed in shot like this one…cpac last 063…it also meant that I could still stand with­out block­ing the audi­ence and get the pan of the crowd that you see in the video.

That applause car­ried a full 44 sec­onds before she started into her speech. It’s applause that has been earned by her tire­less efforts on behalf of con­ser­vatism, efforts that have taken a toll over the six years she has been on the national stage.

When the applause finally died she began acknowl­edg­ing vets and then the col­lege repub­li­cans and the young peo­ple in the crowd. She noted that to the pro­po­nents of Oba­macare those young peo­ple were: “Oba­macare suck­aaaas.….” because: “you have the change they’ve been wait­ing for.”

One might think of this as sim­ply a quip until you con­sider the story of the pres­i­dent on Funny or Die inter­view with Zack Gal­i­fi­ankis to sell Oba­macare to the young and fool­ish gen­er­a­tion.

When Sarah Palin said the White House con­sid­ers young peo­ple “Oba­macare Suckas”, she was right again, I’ll give the last word to Jonah Gold­berg…

it says some­thing sad about the audi­ence Obama is reach­ing out to. After all, if mil­lions actu­ally do sign up as a result (which I highly doubt), it would mean that there are mil­lions of young peo­ple out there who couldn’t be per­suaded by bil­lions of words in news­pa­pers, mag­a­zines, State of the Union addresses, and news broad­casts, but they are per­suaded by a hip­ster web­cast com­edy show. That doesn’t really speak well of them — or the coun­try generally.

That applause carried a full 44 seconds before she started into her speech. It’s applause that has been earned by her tireless efforts on behalf of conservatism, efforts that have taken a toll over the six years she has been on the national stage.

When the applause finally died she began acknowledging vets and then the college republicans and the young people in the crowd. She noted that to the proponents of Obamacare those young people were: “Obamacare suckaaaas…..” because: “you have the change they’ve been waiting for.”

One might think of this as simply a quip until you consider the story of the president on Funny or Die interview with Zack Galifiankis to sell Obamacare to the young and foolish generation.

When Sarah Palin said the White House considers young people “Obamacare Suckas”, she was right again, I’ll give the last word to Jonah Goldberg…

it says something sad about the audience Obama is reaching out to. After all, if millions actually do sign up as a result (which I highly doubt), it would mean that there are millions of young people out there who couldn’t be persuaded by billions of words in newspapers, magazines, State of the Union addresses, and news broadcasts, but they are persuaded by a hipster webcast comedy show. That doesn’t really speak well of them — or the country generally.
