Former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's appearance before the National Tea Party Convention in Nashville Saturday night gave plenty of red meat to the attendees, such as calling President Obama "a charismatic guy with a Teleprompter."

Yeah, much better to read your whole speech from a teleprompter for an address to 12 year olds.

Well, the dims are ashamed of totus so they attack Sarah for her ability to use just a few reminders she wrote on her hand.

In The Godfather, Marlon Brando had his lines written down on index cards and then taped in hidden places around him on the set. He won an Oscar.

I have yet to understand the issue here. Most speakers use notes...what's wrong with writing them on your hand?

Am I missing something or is this complaint just petty to the point of strangeness?

Let us turn the Alinsky rule on the MSM:

"...Keith Olbermann, leader of the Main Stream Media"

"The Main Stream Media, led by Keith Olbermann, today led their headlines with ..."

The MSM has been trying to declare a Tea Party "leader" so they can Personalize It [assign a "leader" or "leaders"] and Polarize It [Strongly identify it with specific "leaders" with their MSM power, then proceed to attack and undermine the "leaders", thereby undermining the Tea Party movement.]

We should "personalize" the MSM by assigning a MSM "leader" and applying Alinsky's rule.

"...Keith Olbermann, leader of the Main Stream Media, today stated..."

The thousand-plus Tea Party attendees who paid $300 to hear her speak (Palin was paid $100,000 for her appearance) probably did not glimpse Palin’s own handy Teleprompter — crib notes written on her left hand.
__________________________________________________________

Wow! Politicians other than Obama use a teleprompter!

Now, do they use them when talking to Elementary School students like Obama does? Or when answering reporters questions? And do they screw up so often when they have to speak without a teleprompter? NO? Oh, ok then!

This whole thing really p*sses me off.

Here is what Sarah should do next speech. Set up teleprompters. When she walks out she should cover up the teleprompters with a cloth and tell the audience she is going to rely on her hand.

Andrea Mitchell is a stupid old wh*re for liberalism.

Yep, and 0bama read other peoples words off a piece of glass and he won the presidency. The left is upset that Palin puts notes on paper, and jots a few key words on her palm, but delivers most of her speech from memory, something The Once can’t do, matter of fact, he can barely read a teleprompter sometimes.

The sad thing is that we were so ignorant of their tactics before the internet really took off. They successfully did this to Newt Gingrich and he, a hyper-partisan professor of the right, was clueless and stepped right into the initial “adulation” of feature stories in Time and that sort of hing.

I thought the notes on the hand were harmless, the only ones offended were the Liberals. Her speedy comeback with "Hi Mom!" was a classic.

No, you're not missing anything. This is just continuing PDS (Palin Derangement Syndrome). "Petty to the point of strangeness" describes it exactly.

And what was the name of the Nazi left winger on the Morning show that did the Hitler thing about the Governor? Just like all left wing Democrats they are either direct offspring of Hitler or Stalin.

Public Speaking 101 says to keep a 3X5 index card with bullet ed points you want to remember to cover in the speech. There is nothing wrong with what she did, other that where she wrote the three words. And that’s only wrong because according to that old wives tail that you’ll get ink poisoning.

Churchill spoke from notes. Had he read a speech (a la Obama) he would have been jeered and booed and driven from the Commons.

Oh, by the way, Andrea Michell is a crater face.

“Churchill spoke from notes. “

That’s right, but I am not sure that his notes were “the enemy is Hitler” or “remember there is a war”...

Gee the IPad just came out and Palin was rehearsing with the Alaskan version of the IPad. Since the media views Alaska as backwards. You know the views are that this was the “Alaska Palm Pilot” version, “Redneck Teleprompter”. CBS reporting news, “Certified Barack News.” NBC reporting news “Nearby Barry Channel”. ABC reporting news as “All Barack Channel”. MSNBC reporting news “Muslim Shitite/Sunni Nearby Barry Channel” CNBC reporting news “Clearly Nearby Barry Channel”. These are not news station but the propaganda arm of the United Socialist States of America Faux Government

There’s a simple explanation. Right now we have the POTUS and the TOTUS. Palin’s trying to simplify things. If she were to be elected President, there would be no need for two acronyms...we could use just one: POTUS (President of the United States) and POTUS (Palm of the United States.) /sarcasm

The MSM has been "strange" about Sarah for a very long time. I think it's beyond question now that it was an MSM employee who burned down her church.

Why is Obama holding back the BATF investigation into the matter?

When is it anything new for the petty nature of the press with their strange fixation and obsession with attacking every little damn thing about Palin, as if people do not realize they do not put 0bama anywhere near any kind of scrutiny. They really are insane and unable to control themselves and have shot their credibility all to hell. But where do they go from here when these absurd stories are all they have to offer and they don’t give a damn about the well-being of America and the people. They are an evil entity who have made a mockery of a democracy’s question to authority and are a lying, manipulating, worthless tabloid variety.

It’s about pay-back. The Libs are sensitized to our ribbing of Obama for his use of telepromters to speak to 6thy graders. So in typical reductio ad absurdum fashion, they try to blow up a few topic words written on a palm of Palin’s hand to equal the “ahhhs, uhhhs, ahems” of Obama without his teleprompter and blunt our criticisms of the media’s “one true god”!

Well, before the 1970’s, you could get ink poisoning, or more specifically blood poisoning...but they changed over to soy protein based inks and nontoxics so “inking ones self” became a non medical issue!(it was all for the children...). Which is why we see letters written in ink fading over time now!

The whole Chris Matthews crowd; Olbermann, Mitchell, others on his show, are just silly, ridiculous. The sit in a circle and verbally j%&k each other off. They act like a bunch of giggly sixth graders. And we're supposed to believe these are the smartest people on tv? What a laugher...

Absolutely nothing wrong with a few crib notes, especially one word notes to make sure you touch on the topic.

Obama supporters got a lot of nerve seeing he can not even complete a sentence without his teleprompter.

But the notes were on taxes, spending, energy and lifting up America. Three of those are core conservative values and the fourth if obviously going to be her campaign theme. Why would she need notes to remember those during a Q&A?

Yesterday after a Liberal at work was poking fun at Palin, I sent him that Obama classroom photo and asked him:

What shows the least amount of intelligence?

• Having a few talking point reminders written on your palm? (Which is public speaking 101 - except normally its a 3x5 index card)

• Or, taking teleprompters with you to speak to a classroom full of youngster?

His reply was that classroom photo was photoshoped. I sent him the video, and he said they can photoshop videos too.

There is no way to reason with Liberals. You'd accomplish more if you bang your head against the wall. Subconsciously he's saying “I've already made up my mind so don't tell me the facts”.

The next day, while campaigning for Rick Perry in Houston, she had “Hi, mom!” on her palm. And the NYT even reported it. Great reaction, very impressive reaction time!

If any of you haven’t watched the whole video, do it now.
