Ok, so regardless of whether or not I like or dislike Sarah Palin something needs to be said regarding the notes scribbled on Palin's hand during her speech in Nashville. Obviously, the media has already destroyed this story with so many nasty comments, however let's try to look at this forgetting what party we are. So, there are some who have viciously attacked Palin calling her a "cheater" or a "scam." But, let's take a look at the facts. President Obama uses a teleprompter all of the time. In fact, when he is interviewed without one, he stutters and has no one to back him up. Talk about a smooth talker. Sarah Palin on the other hand, at least answers from her heart. She answers questions with what she thinks are the right answers, not always what her party thinks are the right answers. I do not agree or disagree with anyone who has criticized her, simply because I do not think this is a big deal at all. Oh, and just food for thought, after being so heavily criticized Palin did retaliate, by writing "Hi Mom" on her hand on a separate occasion just to tease people. How about that liberal media?

The author's comments:
Just some food for thought, I can't stand when the media (dems or repubs) get out of hand about things like this.

Because they don't know what to expect. Here we have this female from a small state that most people think have no political experience but that's another story. When the media attacks a politician so randomly not even about her hand, it sparks fear because people can't move on without talking about her. Just my opinion I find there is no more to discuss the article again was my point of view.

I disagree. All politicians are constantly attacking eachother just as Obama does to Bush so frankly it's no surprise that Palin has criticized Obama. Personally I think people are threatened by Palin because they have never seen another politician like her. Regardless of personal beliefs I would like to thank you for your feedback even though I disagree.

the media and people are not criticizing her for writing notes on her palm. the media and people are criticizing her for criticizing obama for using a teleprompter and at the same time she is using a palmprompter just to remember her core fundamentals. THAT IS THE DIFFERENCE!!!!!
