President Obama has gotten some flack for not merely using, but seeming to over-rely on a TelePrompter. A few days ago Sarah Palin gave talk and apparently had a few highlights written on her hand and some folks who seemed to have no problem with a TelePrompter with entire speeches suddenly jumped with fauxtrage at a hand with a few key highlights. Big deal. I can even see a reason to keep notes "by hand" - you don't lose your hand.
But rather than argue about which way is what, Sarah Palin dealt with it in a good, humorous style when she spoke a bit later.
