    Man I see people hammering sara palin again and this time its becuase she had notes on her hand when giving a speech(interview) the other night.

    I dont get the beef with her writing a few reminders on her hand....i mean sure a piece of paper would have been better IMO but whats the big deal? Don't speakers, such as our current president, use teleprompters?

    Whats the difference. Why hammer on some handwritten notes but give a pass on teleprompters? Is it your partisan sides showing up?

    Me personally...i couldn't give a shit if palin/obama memorized, uses handwritten notes, uses a teleprompter, or a combination of them.....then again i dont suffer ODS or PDS.

    Its not about palin its about the jackanapes on the forum who have the need to bash political figures and public speakers for using speaking aids like notes and teleprompters.

    Are you one of them?

    Nope, I think the teleprompter fauz outrage is totally bogus since every president in recent times used them.

    Notes on the hand is a bit strange though for a nationally worshipped figurehead.

    Now we know how Palin got thru college?

    Using notes shows a command of the subject.

    Using a teleprompter is like reading a book but trying to appear not to.

    It's dishonest.

    I have always viewed the TelePrompTer deal as a thing of humor and nothing more.

    Each public figure gets ribbed for something which has little to do with substance and I view that as one of Obama's. Not something which really matters one way or the other.

    Every public speaker I know has their own way of doing things or ways which work better for them. All of that has little to nothing to do with what they are saying, their message.

    Tell you what lets have a palin, Obama IQ test and see which one is really smarter?

    Any human that actually thinks Palin is brighter than Obama lives in a fantasy world.

    Palin couldnt hack it at some smuck midwest college and bailed.

    Obama was the editor of the harvard law review.

    Really people you are just delousional
