Bizarre Big Gulps

I love Big Gulps, I don’t support Mayor Bloomberg’s nanny-state escapades, and I voted for Sarah Palin.

But what she did on the stage of CPAC was bizarre.

Why? Writing at Gothamist, Jen Chung notes:

Of course, the weird thing of Bloomberg’s soda ban is that Big Gulps and 7-Eleven would have been exempt from the ban. But why should Palin know anything about policy? Anyway, Bloomberg is actually pretty libertarian about the soda stuff—last year he said, “If you want to kill yourself, I guess you have a right to do it.”

Why would Palin use something that wasn’t necessarily banned as a prop? Chung, however, doesn’t appear to actually understand libertarians or libertarianism, but she’s right to point out that Palin picked the wrong prop.

Here are some .gifs documenting her use of the Big Gulp in case you didn’t want to watch the video:

    Ever since she quit the Governorship, Palin has become a prop. She just shoots off buzz words and angry people send her $$

    Actually what really bugs me about this speech is the insinuation that Palin ( with that body at that age) ever goes anywhere near a Big Gulp. She must run her ass off every week.

    Im stealing this quote but i love it:

    “Palin is the Republican version of the unemployed professional anti-war activist.”
