By now you may have heard about the "crib notes" the leftists are railing about. Mrs. Palin was seen checking her hand during a discussion on stage in front of cameras at the Tea Party Nation Rally. It seems that she had seven words scribbled on her left palm: 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.
Well, it seems the drive-by media just can't get enough of this. Teleprompter misfires, pauses, collapses and mispronunciation of 'Corpsman' be damned, the leftists have absolute proof that Sarah Palin must be the most stupid person in America, if not the world.
Huffington Post has become so obsessed with Mrs. Palin that they have titled their page regarding these notes "Exclusive: Palin's Tea Party Crib Notes," with an "Update" reading "New updates and media reactions after the photos."
While commenting on MSNBC after Palin spoke to the Tea Party Nation, former senior adviser to the failed Kerry-Edwards 2004 Presidential election campaign Bob Shrum called Mrs. Palin a "Merchant of hate with an oh gosh smile."
The next morning on Morning Joe on MSNBC, NBC Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell was so professional in her reporting on the Palin speech that she mockingly had notes written on the inside of her hand and showed her notes to the camera.
Palin however seemed to both take it all in stride and perhaps enjoy throwing a jab back at the leftist wackos. Big Government is reporting that Sunday evening as she campaigned for Governor Rick Perry in Texas, Palin was photographed with "Hi Mom" written clearly inside her right hand.
She's a smart lady... You Betcha!
