Closer inspection of a photo of Sarah Palin, during a speech in which she mocked President Obama for his use of a teleprompter, reveals several notes written on her left hand. The words "Energy", "Tax" and "Lift American Spirits" are clearly visible. There's also what appears to read as "Budget cuts" with the word Budget crossed out.
Then we have a better photo of her hand. This is Bible Spices' version of a "palm pilot". This woman is a tragedy. It is akin to going to the store for milk and bread and having to write milk and bread on your hand so you don't forget. And probably written on the right palm: "OTHER HAND!!!!"
So let's go to the video of this softball interview and watch her using her hillbilly palm pilot to cheat. This was the debut of the Palin Palm Pilot during the tea party speech. You may know it as the iQuit or the Palm-Pilotless...
This potential presidential candidate and "movement" leader was using crib notes to answer basic questions?
This would mean:
A) That she knew the questions beforehand and the whole thing was a farce. (Likely.)
B) That she still couldn't answer the previously agreed-upon questions without a little extra help.
If true, this is supremely rich coming immediately after a speech in which Palin took a shot at President Obama for using a teleprompter to read his prepared speeches.
You can bet that the President wasn't reading scribbles off his extremities while he sparred with Republicans and Democrats in an unscripted format in his recent Q&As.
Palin, on the other hand, seems to need a cheat-sheet just to get through a contrived lovefest with a smitten interviewer and an adoring audience.
And conservatives wonder I make fun of them? At least Obama can string a coherent sentence together, even though it may be B.S.
The Republicans best shot is a weather girl that went to 3 different colleges to attain a hard earned journalism degree.
Sarah Palin is not qualified to do anything more than encourage simple-minded people. Palin's most successful career, prior to becoming a mouthpiece for Fox News, was as a weather girl. Not a meteorologist, just a weather girl. Sarah Palin has never, not once, spoke intelligently pertaining to policy.
Palin has a lot of folksy sayings, and knows a few political buzz phrases that she barely understands. Palin's best political move seems to involve her sale of the private jet that Alaska maintained for her travel.
Now personally, the way I see it, if I have to sell my car to pay my bills, this does not make me a savvy economist. It just means I am broke.
Yet, we wonder why the country is in the shitter.
Sarah memorized a lot of words and then regurgitated them in the form of a speech filled with contradictions. The litany of attacks on Obama were cheap and tawdry. Her ignorance about how the government operates and lack of knowledge on the issues are stunning. Her arrogance knows no bounds. Her hypocrisy is as distasteful as it is disturbing.
And she is oblivious to it all.
Sarah's entire speech can be summed up as a broadside attack on the Obama administration. Yet she has the gall to talk about the need for stability and constructive debate.
She is adamantly opposed to giving terrorists Miranda Rights. Apparently she does not know reading Miranda Rights to non-citizens was settled by the courts a long time ago, it is the law.
She talks about man's infallibility but thinks deregulating the market is a good idea. Presumably she doesn't realize the market is a human institution.
Sarah wants more tax-cuts without mentioning how to pay for them. Evidently she does not know tax cuts increases the deficit.
She called for Rahm to resign for using the word "retarded" and seemed to insinuate it was a deliberate attack on Trig and all the people who are mentally disabled. But she does not criticize Rush because it is political satire.
The list goes on... and on .... and on ....
Unarguably the woman clearly is not ready for prime time nor will she ever be. To say otherwise is a willful denial of the facts.
Remember the old axiom: If you can’t dazzle them with your brilliance…..
