Sarah Palin armed herself with a Big Gulp soda during her Saturday speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland.
The former Alaska governor casually took sips from her beverage as she spoke against those pushing for toughen gun regulations.
“She spurred [a] wave of cheers and applause while pausing to take a sip from a Big Gulp, a not-so-veiled swipe at New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s push against large sugary drinks.
In addition, to taking a big ‘ole swig of the Big Gulp, Palin commented in reference to the beverage. “We’re cool. Shoot, it’s just pop with low calorie ice cubes in it. I hope that’s OK,” Palin joked.
The 2008 Republican Party nominee for Vice President couldn’t help but get one last response from her audience as she exited the stage. She hoisted her Big Gulp in the air and waited for the CPAC crowd to cheer.
