It was inevitable for folks left, right, and center to comment on the former half-term Republican Governor Sarah Palin's use of the palmprompter in her speech to the National Tea Party Convention. I posted a photo with my own snide remark. The folks at that Faux News Channel take the cake.
How many days will be wasted talking about this subject? What Palin did was "folksy" and "down-to-earth"? Oh, please! Deliberate? Sorry, I can't believe that...... This all is so
CARLSON: I think she did it on purpose. I think she did it on purpose, yeah. Because it’s an exact opposite of reading off the teleprompter with a script written for you with every word in a sentence and here’s she’s just taking crib notes on her hand. It makes her look like she can just talk off the cuff and she just jotted down a few couple notes before she went out to give a big long speech.
DOOCY: I think she did it because she probably does it a lot. I do that all the time. [...]
KILMEADE: But to sit there and look at, and do the interview and look down at her hand, I think that is — like you said before, Gretchen — folksy, absolutely, down-to-earth, I can identify.
