2/7     Redneck Palm Pilot (Not Sarah Palin Safe):
        http://www.huffingtonpost.com/stefan-sirucek/did-palin-use-crib-notes_b_452458.html
        \_ Emphasis on "Palm".
        \_ I feel sorry for Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert. It must suck to
           realize that they can never be as funny as Sarah Palin, no matter
           how hard they try. I mean did you SEE what she wrote on her palm?
           "energy, budget cuts, tax, lift American Spirits" .. Is this a joke?
           She's critizing Obama for not being able to memorize 5000 word
           speeches and she can't remember 4 concepts? Her "principles" --
           See Stewart/Colbert, as funny as they are, just don't reach that
           supreme nirvana level of comedy.
           \_ RIP Kurdt.

        \_ I am shocked, *SHOCKED* that the NSA spies on foreign and US
           citizens and foreign governments. This Snowden guy must have
           been born yesterday to think he is revealing anything of import.
           \_ Most people seem to have been surprised by this.

Comments 7,499 UPDATE: (New updates and media reactions after the photos) 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. jpg (Photos AP) Final Thoughts: Just to be clear: The notes most likely weren't for her speech, for which she used prepared remarks, but for the Q&A session that followed, during which she glanced at the hand in question. There were no specifics on there, just general concepts and things she supports. The takeaway is that this presidential contender apparently can't remember her supposed core principles and needs a cheat-sheet when simply asked about her beliefs. It's not just about hypocrisy - it's about Palin's apparent lack of ideas and core principles. The Q&A answers, however, were on the front of her hand. During the Q&A following her speech at the Tea Party Convention, Ms Palin appeared to read from her hand in answering. 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. 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. I'm no fan of the Tea Party movement - if it can be called such - but if this is their leader I actually sympathize with them.

A plan has it roots in a visionary principle: The United States must become energy independent in the near future. A plan begins with a strategic goal: By 2020 the United States will have reduced its foreign oil imports by 26%. A plan then provides a series of smaller, tactical goals that support the strategic goal: 1) The US will double its offshore oil production by 2020 using the seabed pipeline octopus technology promoted by Shell Oil. These will be closed to be replaced by new design models that will produce 30% more energy in a fail safe structure (like those used in France and Germany).

Just as they dismissed and denied the wire George W Bush was wearing during one of his debates with John Kerry, even though the entire world watched him go blank when he lost the feed. That deer in the headlights look and the long seconds of utter silence that stretched into infinity? permalink When Palin crossed out "budget," she replaced it with "tax" below. In other words, she decided to speak about "tax cuts," instead of "budget cuts." Or was told that would be the topic of the press conference... So, "energy, tax cuts and Lift America's Spirits" was all she could "handle." Tax cuts, however, are the #1 item in Tea Party agendas. And if you shout it like a cheer, you'll always be understood and never questioned. And for the first time, her right wing knew what her left hand was doing. permalink I like the fact that she is not one of those elitist that relies upon memory. Honestly I just surprised that she didn't have "Right" and "Left" written on her hands. Duh, it keeps her outrageous speech in the news and keeps those PESKY EMAILS OUT ! It so reminds me of her strategic camera placement during her Thanksgiving press conference. Also, it will only endear her all the more to her base as the media talks about it. They love the victim role and they love (beg) to be lied to. and they will be all so willing to believe that it's the gopteabaggers that are fighting to save it. They would not believe that Paul Ryan's proposal would end those programs, as we know them, for their children, if Paul told them himself.
