Hmmm, which is better to have talking points or notes written on your habd or to have to carry a teleprompter wherever one goes. By calling Palin stupid you are not critically thinking and analyzing the situation. For years people have note cards they take with them to interviews. I am not seeing anyone calling "Hopey Changey aka Obama" stupid for having a teleprompter wherever he goes, but y'alls utter intolerance and hatred for Palin makes it ok for you to demean her. One is not stupid or unprepared if they have notes on their hands, it just means they have a lot to talk about... and who cares if she did. Just don't look at one person one way but another gets a pass because he is the person you voted for. Be smart and stop the hate.
Lax, maybe you're right. "Loser" is a strong term. Using a modern piece of technology vs. what I used to pass a test in 7th grade isn't something I should pick on, you're right.
Let's look at what she wrote on her hand..."Energy," "Tax," and "Lift American Spirits." Yep, that's a whole lot to talk about.
It seems to me that you may not have made many public speech. Those are keys words use to remind her to address because in a public speech, one gets drag in all direction. If you do not put key words to ground your points, then you make no point and that would be a trasvesty. Which do you prefer, a speech with no point or one with specific points of view. Let's not judge until you have had experiences in doing those. Even if you have, it does not make her a loser to have note written on her hand(s). Can we get back to more important issues like Energy, Tax and others?
