ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is able to
poke fun at herself about the notes she had written on her hand at
a recent speech, yet still angrily criticized the White House and
the media for starting the jokes.
In a speech at an Orange County Republican fundraiser, she
repeatedly referred to getting caught with the notes written on her
palm and one by one went through each of the thoughts she said she
jotted : energy, tax cuts and lifting the American spirit.
In an obvious shot at President Barack Obama, she said she was
"Busted for using a poor man's TelePrompTer. I was just kicking it
old school. It's the way we used to do it."
