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.
