Palin's brain is in the palm of her hand
PRESIDENT PALIN'S incomplete education in the world of 21st Century American politics has denied her an understanding of how technology can both create you and destroy you. You may have seen her at the TV'ed Tea Party Convention roasting President Obama for using a teleprompter. But her hypocrisy became clear during the Q.& A. afterward when a camera caught her looking into the palm of her hand. There she had scribbled such words as "energy," "tax cuts," and "lift American spirits" to cue her response to questions. It even raised suspicions that she had been given the questions in advance. Well, it was their road show of magical acts so I guess they were were entitled to a bit of sleight-of-hand conning. But by now you'd think that she was capable of memorizing her answers out of the sight of cameras. You would think that, and you would be wrong. At least, we are all aware that Obama uses teleprompters. By the way, did she also have one of those lumpy Bush-style gadgets strapped to her back?
