    Hey CNN, you focus on "Palm Gate", did you focus on "Sixth grader gate" when the president used a teleprompter when speaking to sixth graders? No? hmmmmm

    Yet no mention of the president bringing the full teleprompter treatment to a 6th grade class. But Palin writes 3 general notes on her hand to keep her on task and its a big deal. So I guess since she only needs 3 general notes and not a teleprompter she's the smarter one between her and Obama.

    This woman is frightening. She is also very childish. She mocks her critics?!!! Does that mean that if she became President she'd go ahead and purge her critics.

    Sarah Palin is not stupid, she just isn't qualified to lead a girl scout group, much less, The United States of America. Her lack of knowledge is reminiscent of George W. Bush and America did not do well under his administration.
    The GoP MUST produce intelligent candidates if they plan to do well in national elections. They could get a way with a Playgirl model for Senate, but they can't elect a president that way.......can they?

    Palin the Palm Reader. I watched Mrs. Palin speak at the Tea Party Convention. I hope she will use some of her fee to purchase a teleprompter. It was distracting to watch her look down at her speech/papers every few seconds. And to watch her read her notes on her palm was pitiful.

    Just like herpes, Sarah won't go away. Next to the AIP, she is the biggest joke to come out of Alaska. She reminds me of Yosemite Sam.

    Absolutely amazing. Palin writes 5 words on her palm as reminders for a speech – the only notes she has, Obama has to have a teleprompter to speak to a 5th grade class and the media and public slam Palin! Does anyone but me see a double standard here?

    It raised your eyebrows since it can raise anything else on you libloons.

  11. SC-Pub "no" more

    You need to write three notes to a pre-arranged question... the words she should have written are "stupid is as stupid does."

    And this surprises us why? We all know she's a DA!

    I don't see a problem with writing notes on your hand. Everyone's done it at one time or another to remember something important.
    I think it's more of a problem when so called "media" hone in on the notes to see exactly what was written. I think Mrs. Palin would make an excellent first woman president, and if she runs I will support her!

    Looks like we got a "hand job" from Palin! What a bimbo.

    Obama needs a teleprompter to remember his lines and Palin writes a few notes on her hand. Who's the idiot?

    She is such an idiot until its really sad. She thinks because she got caught and her writing hi mom on her hand the next day people will think she is clever. Well you stupid, nasty ignorant woman, it won't work. Nobody but people with the same IQ as this moron would think this is clever. she is such a dumb person and what's so sad is she is given a stage to sprew her hate and ignorance.

    It's just a reflection of her intellectual ability. No more, no less.

    It is really hard to take someone serious when they poke fun of a person for being "charismatic with a teleprompter" and she is doing the exact same thing only writing on her hand like my teenagers do? If you believe this person could run America and improve things for the working people you merely have to look at a teenager and ask yourself could He/She run this country? Does He/She have enough experience to make big decisions?

    "I don't use a telepropmter!" No, she uses a telehander. Same difference. Too stupid to remember what to say.

    I wonder how conservatives that support her feel, given that she had to write core conservative principles on her hand so she wouldn't forget what she supposedly believes in. That's what the GOP needs- a leader with real values and convictions.

    Crib notes on ones hand a time honored way to remember things in grade school. As one advances through the grades and just prior to prepared statements and tele-prompters, professionals were taught to use 3X5 cards containing talking points they wanted to make sure they address. Key word "professionals".

  22. Obama = WORST president EVER

    Liberals are going to make fun of this??!? Obama needs a teleprompter to speak to 6th graders! Don't throw stones when idiot-in-chief lives in a very large glass white house.

    Sarah Palin is a beloved leader of the Republicans She is the only leader who can lead the party to victory in the future.

    People who resort to mind games and mental tricks over real hard work may succeed in the short term....SInce, this woman feeds on these kind of tricks to feed Hate and Divison it will be the reason she will Ultimately fail....I just hope she doesnt take the rest of the Country down with her.

    What a great idea, just jot a few notes down to remind you of some talking points rather than read from a teleprompter. I would LOVE to see a debate between Palin and Obama (NO TELEPROMPTERS) and see which one is the genius, I think many people would be shocked.
