Thinking about the crib notes on Sarah Palin's palm, I suspect some are pointing out that a few scribbles are not the same as an entire teleprompted speech. Which is true, except that Obama doesn't hide the teleprompter.
But whatever, put aside the hypocrisy point. It's the notes themselves that kill me: "Energy," "tax cuts" and "lift American spirits." That is what she needed to write down. Really. No joke.
That is pure Palin.
