Talk to the Hand

Though Palin used her Feb. 6 Keynote speech at the Tea Party convention in Nashville to offer several digs at President Obama, there was one jab she should have omitted. After referring to the president as a "charismatic guy with a teleprompter," Palin used a teleprompter of her own -- her hand! While answering questions from the crowd, Palin peered at her hand, where she had scribbled "energy," "tax cuts" and "lift American spirits." Democratic critics quickly took to calling her crib sheet a "Hillbilly Palm Pilot" and Press Secretary Robert Gibbs even mocked her during a White House press briefing.
