    It's not so much that she keeps a cheat sheet, though it is pretty pathetic. It's the juvenile way she does it, like a high schooler cheating on a Social Studies test. She reminds me of no one more than Tracy Flick from the movie Election. Reese Witherspoon would make a much better President, however.

    She's great at mocking. I hope that will work on all our nation's problems. Wouldn't it be nice if we could just mock them all away.

    Woohoo. Palin '14!
    We should make her run after she quits two years into her first term.

    Sarah has strong values, great ideas for "saving america" if she only knew what they are.

    This is a childish view of how this women have no education to be a leader. You don't see a student giving a presentation by writing notes on the palm of their hands and then pausing every few minutes to look at what is written. If anybody with a sound mind think that we want to be in a Third World country then they are wrong. Americans needs to rally now to stop all those that want this to happen with thoughs of revolution or anyother comments outside bring the country together instead of moving in another direction. Sarah Palin is an idiot and she needs to go back to school. All of her supports needs to be educated on how this country was form and the struggles we went throught to get this far. Sarah take a 4th Grade History Test and see if you can pass it and then show us the results. I am embrassed for you girl friend and so should your family. A mother that don't know that you don't stand in front of a crowd and read notes off your hand. Stupid Stupid. Go home to Alaska where the people outst you because you were exposed as not a leader and know everything but because your First Dude can't rule anymore. Expose Sarah everyday if that is what needed to shut her up.

    Oh please!! at least it's better than using a teleprompter like your boy obama, for when that thing breaks down obama becomes a stuttering fool.

    So what? Most politicians have reams of notes, to refer to, when being interviewed by the media.

    Somebody needs to get a life if they are worried about a crib note, prompter, etc. It must be a slow news day if 'journalists' are concerned with such insignificant trivia. How about being REAL journalists for a change instead of entertainment lackies.

    Typical republican double standard! Do what I say not what I do.

    The problem is not that she wrote on her hand for the Q&A but that she sneered at President Obama for using a teleprompter in her previous speech. Can you say "Hypocrite?"

    Oh man, this is like SNL all over again. Mrs Palin, people are not laughing with you, they are laughing AT you.

    So it's ok for Obama to look at his FULL speech (most likely not even his own written words) and not ok to have a few buzz words on your palm. Oh, I see it is a Republican Conservative (and woman) so it's ok to bash Sarah. Where were you Liberal's when Obama couldn't even pronounce Corpsman in his teleprompter speech? 3 times no less that he pronounce it wrong and he is their Commander in Chief.

    this "controversy' is the single most rediculous thing I've read in teh past couple years. Why is it wrong to write notes on your hand? Is it wrong to write notes on ntoe cards? paper? Is the teleprompter the ONLY acceptable means for notes now?

    once again, the media proves their dislike for Palin... why do you hate her? Are you scared of what she represents? I certainly expected MSNBC to harp on this but CNN has now thrown in their lot with the liberal ilk

    seriously, people...... we have a president who can't give a good speech without reading it verbatum from a reflective piece of glass....and everyone is up in arms about putting roughly 9 words scribbled onto a hand...... I'm no fan of Sarah.... but you've got to be kidding me...... Obama's hand just isn't big enough to record all the hot air that spews from his mouth.....

    who cares.... honestly...

    if the press needs a story.... try the economy.

    Somehow lost in all the ink / marker is the fact that Palin – for this segment – was provided the question beforehand, and still could not keep straight a cogent set of points. Sixteen months ago, the world's largest problem was the evil, elitist, liberal media. Unfortunately for Palin, she has now exposed herself as incompetent while being interviewed by fellow Foxer Glenn Beck, and now the Tea Party talking heads. ( And let's face facts: Katie Couric is not exactly a pitbull either)

    For a while, I was up in arms about a potential Palin candidacy. Now, I am 100% in favor of it. As evidenced by various blogs inthe liberal media – let alone her employment by Fox – there are a number of sheep -outside the Fiorina race – who will support / vote for Palin, providing the legitimate Republican candidate the same headaches that Nader provided for Gore in 2000.
