Palin’s Palm: Who Needs a Teleprompter?

UPDATE: What the hand said

Images reportedly enhanced from the video below show the following on Palin’s hand:

Energy

Budget cut

Tax

Lift America’s

spirit

Oh don’t fault her for using good ole fashioned American know-how instead of some new-fangled furrin-made device.

[h/t Stefan SirucekEileen B ]

Looks like Palin pulled a sleight of hand during last night’s post speech Tea Party Q&A, using notes on her palm to scoot through the hard parts of the the question:

When we have a conservative house and a conservative senate, as soon as that happens, what do you think are the top three things that have to get done?

She managed her number one

We have to reign in the spending of course….

but then had to look at her handy notes to start a rambling spew about the energy resources under God’s green earth and the need to return America to being a God fearing nation where it’s okay to acknowledge our Creator.

In order to have written that on her hand before the interview, she had to have known the question was coming, right?

She couldn’t memorize those 3 things? Especially when they are the same crap she’s been saying for over a year?

She must have the IQ of a mollusk.

It doesn’t look like there is anything written on that hand. She exposes the palm of her hand on numerous occasions (in general, she’s pretty fidgety for some reason), and it really doesn’t look like there is anything at all written there. I mean, have any of you actually ever caught anyone cheating in this manner? It’s very obvious and hard to miss, and it doesn’t really look like she’s doing it. Maybe the poor video quality obscures the text, but still…

And it’s “REIN in the spending”. If you are gonna engage cheap shots, at least avoid looking moronic in the process. If this is the level on which you are going to engage her, get ready for President Palin coming to a White House near you in 2012. I mean, seriously, President Teleprompter here is getting ready to privatize entitlements and transform the recession into a recession through a spending “freeze”, Congressional Dems are a pack of corrupt jackals who are boasting about their ineptitude and powerlessness, and you think this “expose” will somehow change the political dynamic in the country?

doesn’t look to me like she’s rubbing off the evidence, lools to me like she’s fondling herslef, she’s rubbing her thigh, her knee, her shin and calve while sitting in what looks to be a stripper skirt

It ain’t funny, Mussolini wasn’t much smarter, yet he became the dictator of Italy from 1922 to 1943. He was promoted by populism and therefore the country was called the Italian Social
Republic.

Palin is dangerous; she is an arrogant, ignorant and lying monster. Democrat should be more intelligently fighting her and her fellow fascist Republican party leaders.

TheShadowKnows | Sunday February 7, 2010 06:58 am 16

I have a feeling that Sarah Palin running for the presidency is seen as a sure-fire meal-ticket to whoever wins the Democratic nomination in 2012. She has tax issues, and the funding of her new home, built just before the Wasilla Ice Rink Extravaganza, has not been brought up yet. She has a lot in her closet, and it may just be a matter of timing.

In any case, the Republicans will be formidable in 2012 because Savior Obama prevented the Republicans being cast out into the political desert for 40 years, by his Christ-like forgiveness of all Republican sins – past, present and future.

With Saviors like that, who needs evil-doers??

canadianbeaver | Sunday February 7, 2010 07:00 am 21

Who’s more moronic? Palin, or the many many blogs that continue to monitor this woman? Her 15 mins of fame are long over, but nobody will let her go away. Why the obsession? She is no political threat to anyone, anymore than Coulter or a Malkin are. Oh wait. Bad analogy. Blogs are obsessed with them too. You can’t say it’s to point out their obvious idiocy, because everyone sees it. Those who don’t, never will. Unintentionally, I fear the blogs are all being used to push these morons into more of a public eye. If the economy doesn’t improve by the end of Obama’s term, even an idiot like Palin would win. What a sad world.

‘So why on earth would Palin lie about this, knowing that it would bring scrutiny to this story, and knowing that the scrutiny would reveal that a) the auction wasn’t successful, b) she lost the State of Alaska’s money on the deal, and c) the state’s valuable resource had basically become a luxury for wealthy elites?’

perris | Sunday February 7, 2010 07:11 am 30

I’m surprised the daily dish isn’t on this but the do have an observation I haven’t seen yet on her speech

Palin adroitly re-wrote the history of the past three months of elections, giving the Tea Party movement credit for Scott Brown’s election in Massachusetts and calling the White House “0 for 3″ in recent elections–leaving out the New York special election where her candidate, the Conservative Party’s Doug Hoffman, lost in a last-minute upset.

“You know,” said Palin of Brown, “he was just a guy with a truck, and a passion to serve his country,” said Palin. Brown, however, was a state senator and state representative whose campaign staffers cut their teeth with Mitt Romney.

THE TEA PARTY CONVENTION

The highlight was to be Sarah Palin’s speech, and the highlight it was. The Alaskan Barbie was in great form and the audience loved it, handing her many ovations.

The speech itself was in no way historic or substantive. But it was a fitting keynote speech, better than one that might be given here by, say, Newt Ginrich, or at a gathering of Democrats by,say, Al Gore. Palin criticized Obama and his policies and filled her speech with platitudes and tea party beattitudes.

The conventioneers got what they paid for.

papau | Sunday February 7, 2010 07:53 am 48
In response to pmj6 @ 5

point well taken – but Palin as President is both a bad dream and a possible outcome for those of us on the left.

I pushed stay home in Mass to my fellow left of center neighbors in Martha’s election in order to send a message to Rahm/Obama, but there was a lot of tea party folks who were new to the phone work but doing it and doing door to door for Brown. The GOP vote was the same as in 08, but the message of stop letting the left pretend the Constitution says Freedom from religion so as remove religion from public life was one that had legs – Freedom of Religion – not from religion – will be in 2012. Likewise the small gov/stop deficit rang true for many and will be in 2012.

The fact that the GOP stated “deficits don’t count (Cheney)” – referring to welfare checks for business – needs to be repeated everyday as the American voter has a short memory and a gift for going for easy to remember slogans – forgetting that they are lies based on past acts. Interesting that Brown’s pro-choice position got by about 99% of the right to life crowd.

Palin’s lack of skill and intellect may be an act because many in Mass that I speak to see folks turned off by the “I am smarter than you” attitude of some on the left – again with what is seen as the left’s non-support of the right to be religious in public being seen as proof of that attitude. The Tea Party folks folks are being guided by the YAF folks at that convention to be a “movement” within the GOP – and not a third party – which means hopes of a third party easy Dem win in 2012 are disappearing.

Final point – Brown won because the Dem base stayed home – most because the Health bill is nothing more than a corporate welfare check. In 3 years they may again stay home as the “Democrats just respond to corporations” attitude that has developed becomes rock hard and is applied again but this time for future other than health bill reasons.

karmi | Sunday February 7, 2010 08:41 am 59

Obama can’t do notes at all, since it requires doing three things at once, i.e. looking down to read whilst speaking. Without the Teleprompter, Obama becomes dizzy and weak (like Linus without his blue blanket), and his speech becomes filled with uh’s, aaah’s, etc. Sometimes even his Teleprompter is unable to help him, e.g. Corpsman becomes “corpse-man” to our CIC.

I watched some of the CNN coverage of this late last night and it went on and on talking to attendees and a couple of other officials at the event. What was obvious and disgusting was that this event attracted about a thousand people and it got so much coverage even though the interviewees were vague and repetitive. During the Bush Administration, there were more than a thousand people in multiple cities all across the country repeatedly protesting the War and there was no media coverage at all. The views of Trancredo and the Pastor were treated as legitimate and not extreme. There is absolutely no critical thinking left in the media.

pmj6, you give Sarah Palin too much credit. Huffington Post has actual close up PICTURES of her palm, with the notes, which say as near as I can read “energy … tax … lift America’s spirit.” You mean to tell me she is too du.mb to remember just THREE talking points? Sheesh! I’d say she’s been caught ink-handed. And she has the NERVE to criticize Obama, who held forth for more than an hour EACH with no teleprompter or notes, answering questions from Congressmen of both parties. Here’s the link to Sarah’s third-grade-style palm pilot: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/stefan-sirucek/did-palin-use-crib-notes_b_452458.html … and enjoy.

That was a nice try by the right-wingers and it looked like it might work if Sean Hannity repeated it enough. Then, Obama took all questions, not pre-screened questions like Palin, from Republcian congressmen for an hour and utterly destroyed the “he needs a teleprompter” stupidity.

He gave clear, detailed and logical answers and knew exactly what he was talking about. Palin would never expose herself to that kind of intellectual exercise. She would flounder the second she had to get away from bumper sticker slogans and snarky insults.


WoodyMcBreairty | Sunday February 7, 2010 11:15 am 73

As if the state of politics in America isn’t disgusting enough, the senile John McCain inadvertently introduces the ultimate clown act to our political discourse. This Palin character is beyond the pale, a right wing extremist nut who has been given an open mic by the media, to spout her foolishness, make false accusations, and otherwise perpetuate her fanatical tirades. I think ALL people who support her madness are living in ignorance and are probably of the same hillbilly hick mentality that she is. Otherwise, the extreme wing of the Republican party is using this clown to bad mouth Obama & spread their insane propaganda while they laugh at her behind her back. She is such a fool.


ricardo | Sunday February 7, 2010 11:25 am 74

who cares if she had a few words scribbled on her palm. It means she’s capable of giving a compelling speach with few crutch like cue cards or a telepromter. Ever see Obama without a telepromter?

I’ve made my point. Its messaging that puts people in office. Frank Luntz gets it (read his book? you should) George Lakoff gets its. Authors of these Trash Sarah blogs don’t. But rather than sully Lisa’s thread and add to this stupefying subject (notes on Ms Palin’s palm or… what color her dress is today how haute couture! NOT!) I shall move on, leave you ladies to your tea… nothing to see here folks

Lisa… please accept my apology. My reply at 85 was intended for dakine01. Keep writing ok?

And I’ll accept the insult.

Coming from you and based on your earlier comments, it allows me to consider the source and react accordingly.

Just for the record, which comment triggered your belief that I’m a “low information voter?”

All I have to say is:A low information voter always wins the day compared to a false information voter.

Sarah Palin:Teabagger Bowel Movement Party 2012

We cant wait!!

I suspect the reality is that Sarah Palin herself knew she wasn’t very prepared and hoped to wing it with bare bones of phrases on notecards that may or may not have been organized into an outline. I also suspect she knew she couldn’t thumb through the cards in the Q&A so she did the palm writing and luckily she wore black so when sweaty palms blurred the ink it would not smear her outfit. (Imagine the disaster if he was wearing that ivory number the RNC bought her! What I don’t understand is why she kept waving her hands exposing the scrawled words like a literary hand puppet.
And I thought I had had short term memory loss.

Ricardo: It’s easier to talk about this than the thin content of her speech- but now off to the real work of a citizen of a declining democracy.

Wish this thread had the edit capacity: a “he” should read she and there should be a close parenthesis after puppet sorry
