Sarah Palin brings down the house at CPAC 2013

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin lit up Conservative Political Action Conference 2013 Saturday like only she can.

Easily receiving the loudest and most frequent ovations from CPAC 2013 attendees over the three-day period, Palin came out swinging at President Obama. Starting with remarks about gun control and her opposition to background checks, Palin drew a thunderous applause when she said:

“More background checks? Dandy idea, Mr. President — should’ve started with yours.”

Palin said Obama may have won re-election but his “campaign never stopped at a time when our country is desperate for leadership.” She continued:

“Leaders take risks for the good of our country. Campaigners make promises they can’t keep. Leaders reach across political differences, campaigners double-down on those differences. Leaders seek to bring Americans together to confront our challenges and campaigners seek to divide and to conquer and to orchestrate crisis after crisis after crisis to exploit. Mr. President, we admit it, you won. Accept it. Now step away from the teleprompter and do your job.”

Palin brought down the house when she told the crowd that for Christmas, her husband had bought her a gun rack for the back of her truck and she had to buy him something to put in the rack, following with the sexy punch line: “He’s got the rifle, I’ve got the rack!”

Widening her focus on more than Obama, Palin also targeted “The Architect” Karl Rove and mocked New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as she took a drink from a Super Big Gulp with “low-calorie ice cubes.”
