    Please fill in the other six letters of this word that I have written on my palm. Sarah Palin is a F – – – – – – IDIOT.

    Proof that she is not qualified. The right will argued that it was doctored which is not true. As usual she likes to play the blame game.

    Maybe if she hadn't slammed President Obama for using the tele-prompter, which every president uses, then this wouldn't be an issue. But the woman is ignorant and this is just another example. We had an ignorant president for eight years and he ran the country into the ground, starting two illegal wars, taking the Clinto surplus and turning it into a deficit.

    If she wasn't photogenic, she would have faded from public attention long ago. It's a sad reflection of our lack intellect to give her as much time as we do. There was nothing substantive in her speech... to spend the time she did on meaningless bantering on silly inconsequential stuff such as the use of a telepromter by our president is banal, idiotic and sheer stupidity.

    I don't like Palin and I think she is wrong on many counts but to use this as a point of criticism is weak at best. It's OK as Daily Show material but I expect better analysis from a serious news agency.

    Good heavens! Can't you see her as President of our country – just a minute everyone while I read my hand notes...Fox picked a good one...this will really bring the ratings up as we wonder what she will do next...

    I find it hilariously ironic that the media focuses on Sarah Palin's using crib notes when their very own 0bama can't so much as stumble through a public speech without a prompter.

    Tend to the beam in your own eyes, liberals!

  9. If you want something ruined, put a republican in charge

    If we tried this in junior high school, we would always get caught. Can you imagine a person who forgot her 4 main principles? I'll bet the Russians and Chinese would love to negotiate with her. Don't forget, 600 people paid $500 to hear her, so she is not the dumbest person in America.

    It is unfortunate that Palin came to Texas over the weekened and was featured at a rally with Rick Perry. She's is supporting the WRONG candidate for Texas Governor. Palin should be supporting Tea Party activist and conservative constitutionalist, DEBRA MEDINA. The PASSION in on Debra's side. I'm sorry to see Palin talk good about tea party movements, then turns around to endorse a moderate like Perry for reelection. Please learn more by visiting: medinafortexas.com
    Hey Sarah, any chance you might switch support?

    The notes on her hand are no big deal as who hasn't used crib notes in their life.

    The FAR more important and telling story is her performance during the interview with Chris Wallace. Try as he did to walk that fine line between asking her questions that required some degree of depth/intelligence to answer well and the obvious softballs her answers were starkly shallow and further evidence of her lack of wordly knowledge.

    Anyone who truly thinks this woman is really capable of holding national office must be operating in another universe!!

    This is the choice of the TEA BAGGERS? Wow, what little field they have to choose from its really a shame. This woman really should go back to Alaska and do some hunting or grunting or whatever she did up there...

    This is scary- is everyone blind to her hypocrisy? A presidential candidate?? Anyone can talk the talk, but she has proven she doesn't have the smarts or the ambition to get smart on the topics. Probably because when you elect Sarah Palin, you get Todd Palin. Just look at how involved he was in governing Alaska.

    The only thing more terrifying than this woman thinking she can be president is the people who agree with her. .

    If Sara Pali wants to run for President, she needs to focus on educating herself and stop criticizing the President for using a teleprompter. Her cheat sheet written on her hand was another example of how unqualified she is to run this country. I think the last time i wrote on my palm was when i was cheating on a test in the 6th grade. Way to go Sarah. I know there is more stupidity to come. Can't wait

    Ah, yes, missy is falling back on those same "palm skills" that got her that journalism degree, after 5 years of testing.

  21. If you want something ruined, put a republican in charge

    Conservatives have never been accused of being bright. They usually vote for the best looking over the most qualified.

    Sarah Palin's amateurishness - and then attitude, when she is called on it - is undeniable, indelible proof of how and why she is not a leader and would do this country no good.

    CNN is a joke. Are you kidding me. This is news. OMG! Obama pronounces corpsman incorrectly 3x in the same speach, reading off of a teleprompter, and you bash this woman for having a few notes on her hand. Grow Up CNN!

    You got to kidding me, who is stupid enough to vote her in as President, leaders of other country,s would walk all over her, she would be this country,s little pansie, no thanks, I feel we are good right where we are, At least President Obama tells you right to your face, where he is, where was the last person to do that, not on the Repubican side, he has only been in office for one year, Heck!! give him a break, you gave Bush Eight years, and we know how that turned out, I lost my job on his watch, at least he is trying to get the coruption out of the banks and instititions , who else has ever, I mean ever done that, so all you money greedy, Power hungry Republicans and some democrats also, just shut up and lets work on this country,s problems, the more you argue, the more I have to wait for you dummies to get back on track,
