During her keynote speech at the RightOnline conference in Las Vegas on Friday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin chastised the media and mocked President Barack Obama.
She accused the media of failing to “vet” the President while he was campaigning in 2008, a common complaint made by conservatives.
“So, for the sake of argument, say they ran out of money,” Palin said. “Why did they at least not read his autobiography? They’d have a learned a whole lot. They’d have learned a whole lot, and not just about that pot smoking and that cocaine snorting and what he ate — Fido, Rufus. I think it is funny that the cocktail circuit circus gives me a hard time for eating elk and moose, but come on. There’s a difference. Anybody here have a pet moose? There’s a difference.”
The conference for conservative activists and bloggers has been organized by Americans for Prosperity for the past four years.
In Obama’s autobiography, Dreams from My Father, he described his experiences with drugs as a young man. He also recounted eating dog meat, snake meat, and roasted grasshopper as a young boy in Indonesia. Obama lived in the country from 1967 to 1971.
