Sarah Palin at Freedom Summit. I’m ready for Hillary! A Limerick. Sarah Palin spoke well in Des Moines. In her message a challenge did coin: I’m ready for Hillary! Bring out the artillery! For the battle is on! Let us join! Her speech was ridiculed by both left and right. The phrase that received the most ridicule was: ‘The man can only ride you when your back is bent. So strengthen it! Then the man can’t ride you, America won’t get taken for a ride, because so much is at stake.” Sarah Palin 24 January 2015 Iowa Freedom Summit Des Moines, Iowa, “And whenever men and women straighten their backs up, they are going somewhere, because a man can’t ride your back unless it is bent.” Martin Luther King, Junior 3 April 1968 I’ve Been to the Mountaintop Memphis, Tenn. So, the critics were really ridiculing MLK.
