Everyone is making fun of Sarah Palin’s crib notes written on her hand when she spoke last weekend at the Tea Party Convention. But is this really a good idea? Will it, as Howard Fineman has said, solidfy her support? Or will it lower her credibility?
I guess I’m part of the “elite intellectuals” that Palin supporter love to hate, but I can’t resist repeating some of the Palin jokes. These are from Daniel Kurtzman’s Political Humor Blog.
“Maybe Sarah Palin would be smarter if she had bigger hands.” –Jimmy Kimmel
“I started doing a little something that is mighty helpful. When I come out here to tell the jokes, I have them all written in the palm of my hand.” –David Letterman
“On Saturday, Sarah Palin looked at notes written on her hand during a speech at the Tea Party Convention in Tennessee. Isn’t that wild? Oddly enough, she was reading, ‘Hi, I’m Sarah Palin.'” –Jimmy Fallon
“I wrote a few things down… eggs, milk and bread,” Gibbs said at a press briefing. “But I crossed out bread, just so I can make pancakes for Ethan if it snows. And then I wrote down ‘hope and change,’ just in case I forgot.” [Robert Gibbs, White House Press Secretary] Gibbs on tape.
And Jon Stewart.
I actually saw this in an adult who had memory problems a few years ago. She would write reminders on her hand – like the string aroung the finger thing, I guess. But lots of people were doing this is junior high. Us girls would write our boyfriends names on our hands unless we were lucky enough to have a guy with 5 letters in his name: one for each finger! Your response takes me back!
I guess Palin does not understand satire and she complains about telaprompters, but does this hand jive, what a hypocrite. I have not seen this since junior high. She is so perfect for “Fake News”, so much for being a private citizen. I guess Palin failed to watch President Obama answer questions at the GOP retreat in Baltimore, no teleprompters or crib notes on the hand. But I guess those facts would only blow her poor little Beauty Queen from smallville mind, who could not finish her highest office that she ever held, quit making excuses for her! WOW and some call her a leader…….please.
