Sarah Palin Uses a Hand-O-Prompter

Sarah Palin makes me see "red" (political pun intended), but Stephen Colbert handles her nut-job antics with aplomb. Which is why we should stand back and let the professional evisceration take place. Details, via Bitten & Bound

[Sarah Palin is being ridiculed for using her own personal hand-o-prompter to provide talking points during the National Tea Party Convention in Nashville, while knocking Barack Obama as the "charismatic guy with a teleprompter."  The crib notes were: energy, budget tax cuts, and lift American spirits.

Palin's use of her palm as a cheat sheet really irked political satirist Stephen Colbert. He took up the discussion on his show last night, pointedly mocking her speech.  The comedian went on to revisit the subject of Palin's call for Rahm Emanuel's firing because he used the word "retard" while excusing Rush Limbaugh's use of the same word because it was merely satire.  At that point Colbert offered up this nugget: "Sarah Palin is a f***king retard."]

She could definitely lift my spirits... by going away - forever. The only thing Palin is good for is getting my blood boiling - it really helps to think of her when I work out. I run faster when I think of how awesome it would be to punch her in the face. Sigh. I'm smiling right now, just thinking about it. Given that physical violence is never the answer, it's best to leave it to Colbert to do his ever-perfect job of helping put Sarah in her place. Thanks, Stephen!
