    I guess I am bewildered by the bashing Palin is taking on this. Can one of you libertards please explan what she did wrong, by putting notes on her palm? Is it just plain liberal Palin bashing or did she actually do something inappropriate.

    Our President can't give one of his speeches without it completely written out for him on his teleprompter and CNN is making an issue out of a few words on her hand??????????

    Obama and GWB, neither could talk off the cuff. They both just babble without notes and lots of them.

    She could at least have not made it so obvious in that speech.

    What a very stupid woman! She blasts Obama for using a teleprompt machine and then has crib notes written on her hands!

    Palin is a liar, a hypocrite, and a delusional moron.

    Comparing a crib note, wrote on your hand, to reading speeches, almost verbatim, from a teleprompter, is like comparing a mouse to an elephant!

    Gov Palin has a small hand; there couldn't be very much written on her palm that would be readable.

    I knew it, how would Palin be able to speak from her head, she does not have the brain power for that. Poor Sarah then she wants to compete with President Obama, shame.

    Palin is yet to convince we independents that she is ready to lead. Though she does not need to be a Prof of Law to be the President but at least be smart enough to understand domestic and Foreign policies. We want her to demonstrate accurate understanding of grade 5 social studies curriculum....

    Well, I guess that she doesn't want to have to worry about the teleprompter being on the fritz while she is speaking. She prefers the old fashion way of trying to remember things - writing it on her hand like some used to cheat in high school.

    Sarah Palin could learn a lot from the young educated Meagan McCain. I'm hearing more and more young Democrats and Republicans who say Meagan has their attention and find Palin an illiterate uneducated disgusting person.

    Jesus CNN. The lib's must be scared to death of this woman. Liberal media's as well. Even republicans are scared. I think I like her more now. Your attacks make us wonder why.

    OK... Let's take away Obama's teleprompters. I know, I know, the libs will ignore all the similar stuff about Obama that they attack Palin over. I remember the libs attacking her for using an teleprompter during the election season.

    By the way, I am not a big Palin fan and hopes she does not run for president.

    When you are dumb you have to do whatever you can to make yourself look smart–WINK-WINK. The best part about Sara is not her brains but her leg's–WINK – WINK!

    When are you "News" people going to realize that this moron is a complete and total fraud and has no business in politics???

    She wrote "hi mom" to mock her critics. Big deal. What she and her supporters don't seem to realize is that her critics have a problem with her constant hipocracy. She critisized the President for using teleprompters (something all politicians do) yet she writes crib sheets on her hand. She calls for Rahm Emanuel's head on a platter for saying the word 'retard' yet says Limbaugh's use of it is fine because it was satire (it wasn't, it was completely derogatory). She's a walking contradiction.

    Its to bad Obozo is not intelligent enough to deliver a speech with just a few notes written on his hand. Scientisits should come up with a way to implant a TOTUS chip in his head. No doubt there is plenty of room in it.

    It's just a more cost efficient teleprompter.

    Sarah's palm fashions the new Republican technology, the iPalm.

    Sarah Palin is (1) not very smart, (2) a pathological liar, and (3) a real loose cannon. Let us look elsewhere.

    But doesn't Obama use teleprompters? He must have much more to crib about than can fit on his palm.....

    Palm gate,what is she 15? Writing notes on her hand she should have opted for the teleprompter at least that would have made her look intelligent.
