- Sarah Palin, the former Alaskan governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, brought up New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's soda ban on Saturday in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
- She used the platform to joke about the ban, bringing a Big Gulp up to the state and saying, "Oh, Bloomberg's not around, our Big Gulp's safe."
- The ban was blocked last week by New York Supreme Court Judge Milton Tingling, though New York City is appealing the decision.
From the article:
"... The crowd laughed. She ducked under the podium and while the crowd was still clapping, retrieved a clear Big Gulp cup filed with soda and took a long swig. The crowd cheered some more. ..."
