    Again, the Communist News Network has nothing else to report. I surprises me that you are so afraid this women. Every negative report by your network helps launch her into more national fame. Thanks!

    Palmoprompter Palin.
    If she was running for President she'd have to use both hands AND her feet. Gives a whole new meaning to "footnotes".
    What a tool.

    Honestly? THIS is what passes for news at CNN?
    Really? REALLY??

    Palin jots a memory jogger down on her hand and she's lambasted for it, while the mumbling, stumbling, teleprompter-reading retard (yes, I said it) can't go off prompter for even a brief engagement with a room of 20 people (and no, I'm not talking about his talk with the school kids).

    Don't bend over too far, CNN. Your bias is showing.

    Quit as Mayor, quit as Governor, Liar of the year award for 2009, now officially outed for being a hypocryte.... Priceless! ....And to think there are followers of her is an indication of how stupid some people can be. She's clearly unqualified to be leader of anything.

    She was caught and now she plays light of it. What a lightweight.

    SNL will have the highest ratings every time this lady opens her mouth. She's a walking ephiphany

    For $100,000, she couldn't take the time to memorize her own talking points and had to scribble them on her palm. And she couldn't even get her scribbling right, having crossed out "budget" and inserting the word "taxes". That was stupid enough, but what made it stupendously idiotic was that she waved her hand around during the interview so that everybody, including the cameras, could see that she had notes on her hand. I find her sarcastic disrespect for the President of the United States to be getting very annoying. She can disagree on the issues and point out the specific things she would do differently, but this open antagonism for a man who has does nothing to her is terribly juvenile. I realize that she does this because she is uncomfortable with details and has no understanding of the issues. Attacking someone is a lot easier than outlining your own positions on complicated issues. The people who adore this vacuous yet telegenic dope need to ask themselves what a person has to do in order to demonstrate their total lack of intellect and honesty.

    Upon enlarging the shot of Palin's hand, it was revealed to say "this is the left hand."

    Really, it's like she's taking pride in being less than intelligent. The problem is that simplistic sound-bytes (i.e., "We win, they lose!" in reference to terror) doesn't bode well when she's considering running for president. I think she needs to wake up to the fact that this is far more than a popularity contest and that, if elected, the lives of millions of people will be affected by her decisions. This really isn't a game, and I'm beginning to sense that she finds it acceptable to treat politics like it is.

    She's like a cartoon character. Good looking, and I think that's why she has a big following. Unfortunate for those who expect good leadership from their politicians.

    WHO GIVES A CRAP! Instead of a teleprompter like President Obummer (which no one seems to care to much about), she uses crib notes! This is news! Come on CNN, stop giving this gal any more space.

    Thank heavens that someone so inept intellectually and semantically, and so juvenile and narcissistic emotionally, did not end up in the White House, a few John McCain heartbeats away from running the world's most powerful nation.

    Why is it I keep hearing that this woman's strongest attribute, aside from her maverikiness, is her ability to deliver a good speech? I watched a little of her address to the Tea Crazies last weekend and frankly couldn't make head nor tails of it. Not really a cohesive speech, just banging away on the Faux News talking points. Then the whole junior high notes on hand thing, holy cow! I mean I respect her for making the most of her opportunity to get her rather odd family out of hillbilly Wasilachia, but a candidate for President...really?

    How can anybody give any credence to anything this woman says? She mocks the President for using a teleprompter(which he doesn't need. Ask the Republicans), and then she is caught with notes written on her palm. If this substanceless jester is the leader of the Teabaggers, then this movement has about 2 more miles to go before it runs out of gas.

    I think the timing of this is too perfect. Did she not ridicule Obama for using a teleprompter? HYPOCRITE!

    This idiot is not (repeat), is not the enemy of the people. She's the red herring of the media. The enemy of the people is Shelby, of Alabama. There should be a concerted effort by the people to boycott any and all commerce of Alabama, as well as tourism.

    This is hilarious Palin turning the tables on the liberal media and critics. I mean come on 3 little scribles on a palm vs. Obama reciting everything off his teleprompter each time he speaks. You would think he would remember what to say goint out there being the big orater he his.

    The woman is an idiot, please make her go away. She is an embarassment to politics. Hopefully, intelligent people will see through her shallowness and force her into an early retirement in Alaska.

    CNN, where have you been? You are playing catchup with this story that everyone was talking about two days ago.

    she's not the idiot(wink..wink). it's the people that paid her to speak, the one's that were chanting "run sarah run" and anyone who would even think about voting for her for president, that has the idiot catagory wrapped up.

    The fact that millions of people think this woman is qualified to be President of The United States is embarrassing for the entire nation.
