Michele Bachmann kicked off Saturday’s program at CPAC by explaining that the Tea Party is “at its core is an intellectual movement.” It was only fitting, then, that Sarah Palin ended CPAC by reading her own version of “Green Eggs and Ham.”

“Dr. Seuss, who’d have thunk? Who’d have thunk?” Palin said of Ted Cruz’s use of “Green Eggs and Ham” during his fake filibuster against Obamacare.

I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like his health care scam;
I do not like these dirty crooks or how they lie and cook the books;
I do not like when Congress steals, I do not like their crony deals;
I do not like this buy-in man, I do not like ‘oh yes we can’;
I do not like this spending spree, we’re smart, we know there’s nothing free;
I do not like reporters’ smug replies when I complain about their lies;
I do not like this kind of hope and we won’t take it ‘nope, nope, nope’
