Palin: DC Pols Treat ‘Cesspool’ Like A ‘Jacuzzi’

February 11, 2012 12:11 p.m.

At her CPAC speech Sarah Palin weighed in on politicians who come to Washington decrying it as a “cesspool” but who “after a year or two” decide, “this isn’t a cesspool; it’s a hot tub!”

“We have to drain the jacuzzi,” she told the cheering crowd. 

She quickly made it clear she was not talking about the freshmen intake of 2010. “I toast the tea party members there in Congress,” she said, and went on to say she hoped they soon won leadership positions.
