    At least she doesn't have to have every word written on a teleprompter and then have a meltdown when the thing breaks down.

    she is such a shallow person, nothing between the ears but hot air, but ignorance can be very dangerous.

    So, Mrs Palin thinks its more dignified to write on your palm (like back in junior high school) than to use a telepromter. Hmmm, so the President of the United States should have written the SOTU address on his palm.

    It's also how she got through high school. Old habits never change.

    All this about some crib notes on her hand?! Cut me a break Obama calls U.S. Marine Corpsman a "corpse"man at least three times in a speech and nary a mentionby any news outlet. Obama can't talk to school kids without a teleprompter, but again that's okay. At least she only needs a few reminders of her talking points and not a prearranged, pre-polled, predicitable speech of the same old talking points. Bush may have tripped over more than a few words but at least he was real not a phoney baloney teleprompter puppet of Axelrod
    and Emanuel.
    What is the fascination with Sarah Palin? She's a goof but she doesn't deserve the treatment the viscious left has targeted her with.

    PLEASE let Sarah run for president in 2012. That will be a landslide victory for the Obama campaign.

    I guess the old saying is true - there's a sucker born every minute, and every sucker out there wants Palin to be president. She's such a dimwitted dingbat that she even gives dingbats a bad name.

    She's a clown and the only person who doesn't know it is SARAH PALIN. She told Chris Wallace that Roger Ailes should fire her because she's not an analyst. How stupid is that?

    why am i not surprised. ms palin makes a determined effort to belittle anything that isn't exactly what she wants. this is one of the reasons she is not suited for public office. everyone, no matter their political affiliation, will have opponents and belittling them is no way to get things done.

    Teabag Barbie obviously does not take the political arena seriously. Whatever will she do when that 3:00 a.m. nuclear Iran call comes in if she has washed her hands before going to bed? Grow up lady, your inner child has taken over.

    Why should anyone be suprised at this? How do you think she managed to graduate from a community college with a degree in newscasting after only 6 years? You betcha!

    It's scary to think she has to write the answers to pre-submitted questions from a friendly crowd on her hand so she doesn't forget them. What does it say about her level of intelligence when it comes to the issues, that she can't speak about them without crib notes? It only goes to reaffirm what America found out about Palin in 2008-2009; scratch the surface and there is nothing there.

    The black dude in that video needs to realize that his black president cant even say his own name without using a teleprompter...jack A

    And they accuse Obama of needing a teleprompter? Which, BTW is ridiculous. Just witness his live, unscripted meeting with the house GOP.

    Maybe she can put her first State of the Union speech on her palm...A nation of idiots led by the biggest dope of them all ..be careful what you wish for, teabaggers! ( because it's coming...lol)

    Can't the teabaggers just move to Alaska? ( come on, they have everything you need up there!)

    GOP: Please nominate Palin as your candidate...nothing would be funnier. She is the gift that keeps on giving. On a serious note, most politicians are incredibly stupid, but she may just be the slowest one in history. Her remarks about how, 'Rush used satire...' were priceless. I think I have it: because Rush is a GOPer, he can demean anyone he wants? Got it. Elect this woman.

    Palm"Gate"? You people are whacked! Notes for a speech, wow, NO ONE ever did that before. LOL! Reading from a teleprompter to children...hmm, that makes one a genius. Go Sarah. She wrote something like "Taxes, Energy, American people". She is using this to make the Left look petty and ignorant once again. The woman is a genius!

    How is that worse than using a teleprompter all the time, especially when talking to school kids? For cying out loud, what a double standard by the Loons.

    Obama is hooked to the teleprompter 100% of the time.

    WHo's brows do they raise? CNNs? Cause it doesn't raise my brows. Maybe the headline should be "Palin's palm raises CNN's brows."

    Maybe Palin should use a teleprompter. It worked for "the great communicator" Ronald Reagan and nearly every president since the device was invented, including Obama. Get over it, Palin, and find a real issue to talk about.
