Say one thing for White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs: The hypocrite's got chutzpah.
Too bad he's so dumb.
Gibbs took a moment from his Tuesday press briefing to mock Sarah Palin for delivering a speech at last weekend's Tea Party convention in Nashville -- with notes ("Energy," "Tax cuts," etc.) scribbled on her hand.
Gibbs stood at the podium and showed his press audience that he had jotted down "Eggs," "Milk," "Hope" and "Change" on his hand.
Oh, and he crossed out "Bread."
Get it? Palin's too darned dumb to string the element of a simple stump speech together.

Gibbs is a fat, smarmy punk who’d get his ass kicked in any gathering of normal americans.
It’s interesting to watch this white house press clown act like a low brow bully boy. Makes the great zero’s administration look real mature and professional.
“Ha ha! She criticizes Obama using a teleprompter and writes on her hand!”
I wasn’t aware of the fact that the human hand can hold as much information as a teleprompter. Maybe it isn’t a human hand. Maybe Sarah has the new iHand. Otherwise, it seems to me she had a few notes in place just to make sure she didn’t forget anything. The Great Orator, on the other hand (no pun intended), has to have a ‘prompter to talk to sixth graders. And, half the time, he reads the wrong thing. “I’d like to introduce Barack Obama! Whoops! That’s me!” He’s like Butt-Head trying to be a telemarketer. “My name is Your Name.”
The far Left is mad because he could have spoken about weighty matters, (things they care about like same sex marriage, global warming), but he chose to joke about Sarah Palin.
They will never grow up.
Sarah Palin is an Alaskan woman who holds no public office and it is nearly three years until the next presidential election.
This country is facing severe economic distress and high unemployment and there are mounting dangers against the U.S. around the world. In the meantime, a dumb-ass presidential press secretary throws a bully punch at a woman who governs nothing!
BARACK OBAMA CANNOT GOVERN...PERIOD.
All he can do is run across the playground in fear of a woman.
The enemies of America are surely laughing at the inept children and sissies in charge of the U.S. government.
Obama and his people are not even grown-ups!
We have a bunch of pants-peeing cowards in charge!
OK dumb ass. Let's take away Obama’s teleprompter and see what happens at a press conference.
"Addressing the Tea Party, Sarah Palin wrote three notes on her hand: "Energy, Taxes, Lift American Spirits." Why? She already had notes in front of her on the podium. Surely she could remember three simple themes. Why write notes on her hand?"
"Here's my take on why: she knew that they would be visible when she gave the speech. And she knew that she would be made fun of -- as so stupid that she needs to write notes on her hand. And that's one of her most effective tactics -- to be made fun of. It's an integral part of her strategy of standing in for hardworking, Middle Americans, derided by the condescending, know-it-all liberal elites."
"Palin is a brilliant strategist. First, note that I just repeated Palin's key talking points: Palin has even us fellow travelers at The Huffington Post repeating, "Energy, Taxes, Lift American Spirits."
"Talk about earned media."
Obama says “Peace Corpse” instead of Corps because one of his writers spelled it wrong on his teleprompter. Well that’s certain proof that Chairman MaO can read what he is told.
Didn’t Obama talk to a group of grade-school children—from a telepromptor ?
I would love to see a daily press briefing-and nobody asks a question.
“Obama and his people are not even grown-ups!”
Absolutely right - they are adolescents. Which makes me wonder - do they mock Sarah Palin because they really are afraid of her or are they like the high school cliques that make fun of kids who are “different” simply because they can. Cruelty for cruelty’s sake - a popular sport among the immature.
Were it anybody else acting like Gibbs and his Dhimmi friends I’d say it was political worry that makes them so hateful toward Palin. But since the only other place I’ve encountered people like them was in high school (or maybe jr. high) I have to wonder what’s really going on with them.
The fun thing is that by not stressing Zer0’s gaffes, the media make themselves the issue.
So many people read the blogs and the alternative media now that trying to manipulate the news is blowing up in the LSM’s faces. It is costing them a fortune in readership and viewers. I keep hoping they’ll get a clue and make some changes but so far, no luck. They need to either do a housecleaning or just accept the inevitable - bankruptcy and going OOB.
Palin knows the MSM will focus on something and try to trivialize, humiliate, or try to make her appear cartoonish. She, though, controlled the issue with an ink pen to her hand. And it points out that Obamao can’t speak to 6th grade children without a teleprompter. Palin pwnd the press and, dare I say it, Obamao through his chosen press secretary.
It is amazing that the Obama administration is so adversarial toward anyone with an opposing opinion. For example, their response yesterday to calls for Brennan's resignation wasn't a simple no...the WH called the suggestion "pathetic!"
To introduce "value judgments" into the national political discourse is not just immature, it points to the very nature of the occupant of the Oval Office. There's a nastiness to the WH that I've never witnessed in public life at the national level.
This administration is not only dishonest, corrupt, and incompetent...it is also mean-spirited.
She was using a teleprompter of some sort. The way she kept looking down at the podium between lines makes it obvious she had some sort of monitor to read from. But so what? What politician doesn't use something like that when they're giving a speech? An address that important, it would have been irresponsible of her to try and do it extemporaneously.
From what I've read in other sources she use 3x5 note cards. Just like any normal person.
And what we are finding beneath that bizarre contrived grin of his is a person of almost reptilian malevolence (no insult intended to snakes and lizards...alluding only to the primalamygdala-esquequality of Obama's behavior).
