Gotta hand it to her

Half an hour after criticizing President Obama for using TelePrompTers when he speaks in public - never mind that all presidents have used the electronic word-scrolling device since its invention - Sarah Palin is caught reading crib notes off her left hand during a Q&A session at Saturday's Tea Party convention.


Let's go to the videotape:

In case you couldn't make out the words on her hand, they were "energy," "tax cuts" (with the word "tax" appearing under the crossed-out word "budget) and "lift American spirits." Seriously? She couldn't remember those three things without writing them down? Unbelievable. But then again, considering who we're talking about, I guess it's very believable.

A close-up shot of Palin's hand appears here:
