Did Sarah Palin use Tea Party crib notes on her hand? And what did they say?
Sarah Palin knew her speech -- delivered at the First Inaugural Tea Party national convention this weekend -- like the back of her hand. (literally)
But at the following Q& A, it appeared that she was reading her talking points, er, answers from the palm of her hand, where they were scrawled in ink.
The fact that she used crib notes to answer simple questions is A. extremely rich considering she criticized President Barack Obama recent use of a teleprompter and B. extremely cheesy for the so-called leader of a new American political movement.
During her speech, Sarah criticized Obama's first year by saying "the list of broken promises is long" as she addressed the Tea Party's inaugural convention and worked up the crowd with, "American is ready for another revolution!"
The Tea Party's paid attack dog, sorry, keynote speaker, delivered an assault on the Obama administration's national security and terrorism policies. She also questioned whether the suspect in the attempted Christmas Day bombing of a Northwest flight was interrogated aggressively enough.
"Treating this like a mere law-enforcement matter places our country at grave risk because that's not how radical Islamic extremists are looking at this," she said. "To win that war, we need a commander in chief, not a professor of law standing at the lectern."
She also accused Obama of proposing an "immoral" 2011 budget that is equivalent to "generational theft."
Did we mention that the crowd shouted, "Run, Sarah, run?"
Looks like Tina Fey -- possibly with crib notes on her hand and lord knows where else -- will be called back into action soon.
