Sarah Palin


Out of a Straw

3/17/2013 5:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0317_sarah_palin_gettySarah Palin attempted to mock the proposed ban on large sodas in New York City by sipping on a Big Gulp during her speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference yesterday.

For those of you outside of the Big Apple, Mayor Bloomberg is trying to implement a ban on soda cups bigger than 16 ounces ... in the interest of health.

The former VP hopeful took a dig at Bloomberg when she brought the large cup on stage and said, "Bloomberg’s not around. Our Big Gulp’s safe."

Seems no one told Palin that the 7-Eleven Big Gulp is NOT part of the proposed ban.

Maybe if she read a magazine or newspaper ...

Nice try to mock Palin here, but her slam on the RIDICULOUS ban on sodas over 16 ounces by this nanny state is in everyone's best interest. First soda, then food, then alcohol, then what, words?. Big Gulp is over 16 ounces so it is, in fact, part of the proposed ban. Like her or not, she's for your right to do what you want. Everyone should want that - putting personal attacks aside.

Thanks TMZ for adding that part about 711 not being included in the coverage of this bill. It is basically a bill designed to put mom and pop shops out of business. I agree, if Palin ever read a paper she would know the details of this bill.

She (and I for that matter) were not referring to the actual Big Gulp but that a Big Gulp is over 16 ounces. It's called "referencing" and the audience knew what she meant. People keep trying to define her by what the media says about her or by a soundbite - but it shows they know nothing. Too bad, because like her or not, she's a tough broad. If a liberal gets picked on they scream "racist" or "sexist' or whatever. Palin can take it and doesn't care or blame. I'm not a Palin fan per se, but I can recognize that she's for individual rights and is a tough broad to take the beating she's taken in the media and now appears stronger. She has a lot of power but it's not recognized and "laughed off" by the left. Mistake. One thing about liberals, they will attack the thing that is the threat So, conservatives relish the attacks because they know they've hit a button.

I get Sarah's point, but You know she's drinking a diet soda. The ban is more geared to regular high calorie sugar drinks, not zero calorie sodas.
