Cheat Sheet?

Did you hear it?

The howl of thousands and thousands, or as I’m sure Fox News will report it, hundreds of thousands and thousands, of crazy right wing Republican (and other) kooks in Nashville yesterday honoring the Heiress Apparent of the Republican Party at the National Tea Party Convention?

Actually, the number was estimated at around 600.

Not quite thousands or hundreds of thousands, is it?

What did they hear at said Convention? Well, the Patriot of all Patriots, Sarah Palin, declaring:

“America is ready for another revolution”

Yeah. Hasn’t she (and her husband) been advocating this for a long time?

You betcha!

But, let’s leave that topic for another day.

Today, I’d like to discuss Sarah’s criticism of President Obama’s use of teleprompters during her speech. Within minutes of crawling up to the podium Palin said, referring to President Obama:

“that charismatic guy with a teleprompter.”

The horror!

Dear Sarah: Before making such comments, perhaps you should wash your hands? I mean…why were you looking at your palms so much?

What the hell? All the money these Teabaggers brought in, they couldn’t afford your very own teleprompter? You had to use a cheat sheet for your talking points?

Here’s Sarah’s hand:

“that charismatic gal with a cheat sheet…”

You Betcha!

UPDATE: Fox News, in all of it’s infinite wisdom has explained this brilliant move by Palin for us all:

On Fox & Friends this morning, the hosts defended their colleague’s Telepalmer notes. Carlson suggested that it was a brilliantly clever plot to draw attention to Obama’s use of a teleprompter:

CARLSON: I think she did it on purpose. I think she did it on purpose, yeah. Because it’s an exact opposite of reading off the teleprompter with a script written for you with every word in a sentence and here’s she’s just taking crib notes on her hand. It makes her look like she can just talk off the cuff and she just jotted down a few couple notes before she went out to give a big long speech.
