Former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin repeatedly brought a jam packed crowd to its feet during her speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday.

Palin covered everything from overpaid Washington D.C. consultants, gun control and crony capitalism to New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s recently shot down big gulp ban.

As Townhall readers know, elections are always on our minds and the next one was on Palin’s mind today as she advocated for an outside-the-beltway approach to the future.

“The next election is 20 months away, now is the time to toss the consultants,” Palin said while getting a dig in at Karl Rove. “The last thing we need is Washington D.C. vetting our candidates.”

As expected, Palin slammed President Obama for his never ending campaign just as she has done on her Facebook page over the past few months.
