Palin's hand says it all

I had noted the funny bit that Sarah Palin had written notes on her hand to answer pre-submitted questions, but what I hadn't noted is just what that crib sheet said.

It had three items.

Cut Taxes.
Lift American Spirit.

Seriously! Sarah Palin can't remember "cut taxes" or to talk about her "signature issue" of "energy?"

And, more broadly, Sarah Palin can't remember 3 things?

And, who is so badly planned that they have to cross out a mistake when writing prep notes on their hand?

Let's just couple this with the tanning bed in the governor's mansion and be done with her as a serious person.

As Andrea Mitchell pointed out, "If Mitt Romney had notes on his hand, (or had a tanning bed) wouldn't we take it pretty seriously?"


  • Why is this woman not treated as a freak curiosity by legitimate media? Oh, wait... "legitimate" media. I see.

  • Because she drives viewers on both sides.

    She is the Paris Hilton freak show of politics.

  • Just watch -- Faux News will spin this as evidence of how 'real' and 'down-home' she is.

  • There is no news programming. There is only "reality" TV with spokes-models sitting at desks. It all contrived to generate ad revenue.

  • r8r, maybe they'll spin how the media is out to get her?


    EPM, profit has destroyed news.
