I’m suprised Sarhoid didn’t write the note on her sneakers

I love laughing at her defenders when this clearly mentally challenged person does shit like this. I’m sure she will blame the liberals.

Her hand is the teleprompter or is that the grocery list.

#2 Scooter on 02.07.10 at 9:47 pm

I didn’t think she could read???

#3 Helga on 02.08.10 at 1:01 am

She couldn’t remember to say taxes…..oh wait, she didn’t remember to pay her own taxes. http://www.themudflats.net/page/2/

#4 l3wis on 02.08.10 at 2:24 am

Scooter, she reads everything!

#5 l3wis on 02.08.10 at 4:21 am

I can’t wait to hear the Palin defenders on this topic.

#6 Interloper on 02.08.10 at 5:14 am

Big deal. So she wrote a couple of notes on her hand. But the Prez uses a teleprompter while addressing sixth graders.

Of course it could be argued that the Tea Party attendees were like sixth-graders…but Palin didn’t use a teleprompter.

#7 Interloper on 02.08.10 at 5:15 am

And once again, you people are really desperate when you have to resort to this kind if nitpicky stuff.

I wasn’t aware that Obama was the first president ot ever use a teleprompter.

You learn something every day.

#10 Sy on 02.08.10 at 9:36 am


Obama isn’t the first POTUS to use the TP, he’s just the first one since it’s inception to use it for nearly every speech or appearance he makes.


The difference is that SP writes down a few one word reminders on her hand, each one for a topic she wants to include in her remarks. The rest is all her, like it or not.

Obama on the other hand, is simply regurgitating what is typed out for him. And apparently, neither he nor any of his inner circle/speechwriters know the proper pronounciation of “corpsman”, which is about as basic a bit of info you can get. It wasn’t a fluke, as BHO repeated the mistake 3 time in his remarks.

Kinda pathetic how our CIC is so out of touch with the military, is it not?


#11 Sy on 02.08.10 at 9:48 am


“I’m sure she will blame the liberals.”

She should if those same liberals want to trash her over something as simple and benign as notes on her hand. Again, Biden can say the stupidest crap and none of you care, and he’s actually a heartbeat away.

Biden, BTW apparently thinks that we began pulling out of Afghanistan in 2003 and that they are a Nuclear power, per his recent Diane Sawyer interview:


Joe might want to start writing shit down on his hands.

#12 owk on 02.08.10 at 9:51 am

He is not the first to use a teleprompter, just the first to use a teleprompter for every speech given. I give Palin props for using the original teleprompter. How do you think Washington and Lincoln gave speeches back in the day?


#13 Ghost of Dude on 02.08.10 at 10:08 am

How do you think Washington and Lincoln gave speeches back in the day?

If they’d had teleprompters, they’d have used them.

#14 Johnny Roastbeef on 02.08.10 at 11:48 am

Did Sarah Palin‎ give a whole speach or did she quit half way through it?

#15 l3wis on 02.08.10 at 1:55 pm

She used the crib notes for her Q & A session. CNN played a clip that made me laugh, she said, “How’s that Hopey-Changey stuff work’in out for yah?” She is such an idiot.

And what is up with her pornstar rouge?

#16 Costner on 02.08.10 at 1:56 pm

owk: And once again, you people are really desperate when you have to resort to this kind if nitpicky stuff.

You mean sort of like how you and Sy instantly resorted to the “bu bu bu Obama uses a teleprompter…” bull$shit?

Yea… thats what I thought.

Palin is a moron who continually blames the media pressure for anything and everything which she cannot handle. She couldn’t even handle the pressure as a candidate and couldn’t hack one term as a governor before quitting.

Anyone who thinks she would make a good President or that she would be worthy of the nomination when there are at least a few dozen other highly qualified intelligent members of the GOP who are actually deserving of such an honor has confused the highest office of our land with the Miss America pagent.

I’d love nothing else than to have a legitimate conservative step up to the plate to challenge Obama… but if Palin runs it will be more embarrassing than David Hasslehoff trying to suck in his gut during every single episode of Baywatch.

Aside from Tina Fey I have never seen anyone milk this much popularity out of a set of funky glasses and a smile.

#17 Helga on 02.08.10 at 2:22 pm

She wrote down taxes and energy for heavens sake…….she couldn’t remember that? Republicans say taxes in their sleep. Surely should could have been more original in her note taking.

#18 Ghost of Dude on 02.08.10 at 2:51 pm

Republicans say taxes in their sleep.

And scream “OH RONALD REAGAN!” when we have sex. True story.

#19 Scott on 02.08.10 at 4:39 pm

I love how any time any minor criticism of Palin is offered, there’s immediately an attack on Obama in response. I guess if you think she’s an imbecile who has no business being in the running for national office you’re immediately one of those nasty names – “liberal”, “socialist”, etc. I’ve voted for many Republicans in my life, but I could never even consider wasting a vote on this tv-created moron.

#20 James Milne on 02.08.10 at 8:03 pm

I find it most interesting that media types would rather attack someone for doing something that many do, such as writing notes on their hand or having a stumble in speech than they would actually report on the issue. Politics in general has gotten so far away from talking about issues, and gone towards personal attacks. Disgusting.

#21 owk on 02.08.10 at 9:37 pm

WHOOOAA, simmer down there Costner! For one, you’ve applied a quote to me that I didn’t say. And, that’s all I’ve got.

BTW, I’ve got more, I’m not defending Palin, it’s called humor (I thought this was a snarky site), as in definition 3a

Etymology: Middle English humour, from Anglo-French umor, umour, from Medieval Latin & Latin; Medieval Latin humor, from Latin humor, umor moisture; akin to Old Norse vǫkr damp, Latin humēre to be moist, and perhaps to Greek hygros wet
Date: 14th century

1 a : a normal functioning bodily semifluid or fluid (as the blood or lymph) b : a secretion (as a hormone) that is an excitant of activity
2 a in medieval physiology : a fluid or juice of an animal or plant; specifically : one of the four fluids entering into the constitution of the body and determining by their relative proportions a person’s health and temperament b : characteristic or habitual disposition or bent : temperament c : an often temporary state of mind imposed especially by circumstances d : a sudden, unpredictable, or unreasoning inclination : whim
3 a : that quality which appeals to a sense of the ludicrous or absurdly incongruous b : the mental faculty of discovering, expressing, or appreciating the ludicrous or absurdly incongruous c : something that is or is designed to be comical or amusing

This brought to you by our friends at,

#22 Scott on 02.08.10 at 9:40 pm

James, maybe if Palin ever did truly discuss an issue rather than throw out cliches and catchphrases I’d take her a bit more seriously.

#23 James Milne on 02.09.10 at 5:20 am

Then nail her on her lack of substance rather than name calling and making snide remarks. It shows more intelligence to go after someone with facts than to attack with mud.

#24 Costner on 02.09.10 at 7:38 am

People have pointed out her lack of substance… heck that was abundantly clear even during her Katie Couric interview when it was obvious not only did she have no clue about the world around her, but she actaully believed being the governor of Alaska enhanced her foreign policy experience.

Hate to break it to Palin fans, but you cannot learn by osmosis.

Then she can’t even explain what financial regulation McCain was involved in nor could she explain what books or media outlets she reads to get her viewpoints. Heck – make something up for crying out loud, but to say she reads “all of them” just went to show how out of touch she is with the world around her.

Yet she went onto an interview later and claimed Couric didn’t do her homework for the interview? Sure thing Sara… that makes perfect sense.

The problem with Palin’s lack of substance is the far right continue to put her out there – so if you don’t offer any substance, people are going to fall back to whatever is left… and in Palin’s case that doesn’t leave much.

The GOP would be insane to nominate her for the job… heck they would be insane to even pick her for the VP slot again. She is more well suited for her own reality show than she is public office.

#25 James Milne on 02.09.10 at 8:31 am

I can’t disagree with you there, she should be ignored though rather than used as a punching bag. The GOP put her up simply to try and bring those who would vote for Hillary over to their side, an idiotic move to say the least. Why people are enamored with Palin as a politician is beyond me, but at least I don’t beat her up for simply being thrust into a position she is not ready for.

#26 Costner on 02.09.10 at 9:49 am

I don’t think we can give her any sympathy at this point. Maybe initially that was a fair assessment when she came from nowhere to the limelight due to McCain’s inability to properly vet a candidate, but since that point she has been doing this to herself.

She is the one who voluntarily puts herself in front of the cameras as often as they would have her – even inviting such trusted media organizations (sarcasm intended) as People magazine into her home to take pictures of her son. She is the one who decided to step away from her elected job as Governor so she could write a book named after a sexual act.

She is the one who accepted a contributing role on Fox News and who willingly accepts funds to speak at Tea Party rallies, and she is the one who continually displays her ignorance when she is put in a position which hasn’t been scripted beforehand. She is the one who voluntarily goes onto programs where the interviewer is clearly far more intelligent and prepared, and she is the one who chastises people for using the term “retard” only to claim it is ok when others use it for satire (note to Palin: if the word is as offensive as you claim, it should never be acceptable to use it).

If she really wanted to, she could return back to Wasilla and after a couple of months nobody would ever bother her again. However for her to complain about the glare from the spotlight now is much like a celebrity complaining about the paparazzi when they decide to go to a nightclub in LA where they know full well several dozen photographers will be waiting…. and then getting out of a Ferrari wearing a miniskirt sans underwear.

There just comes a point where people have earned their own notoriety. I think she has pretty much earned everything being tossed her direction.

#27 Sy on 02.09.10 at 11:41 am

You Palin haters have simply fallen for a media template. One you wanted to be true well before any “proof” was offered up. Couric had well over 6 hours of taped time with Palin over 2 days. She and her producers went with the 10 minutes you have seen and that’s enough for you.

Had Palin spoke about a “corpse-man’s” sacrifice or claimed Afghanistan was a Nuclear nation you’d blast with both barrels. When Obama or Biden make the same mistake you ignore it. Conversely, had Obama or Biden written some notes on his hand, you’d call people petty for pointing that out. Blatent double standard.

Here’s another good summary of the Palin effect:

“What ultimately drives the media crazy is they know instinctively they are co-conspirators in her rise. From the Katie Couric interview to the over-the-top attacks by the likes of Shrum, by overplaying their hand they made Palin a bigger force than they ever intended. Had they simply been fair to Palin when she ran for vice president and treated her with decency, she would not be viewed now by so many grassroots conservatives as a victim of irrational elitist hatred. As much as John McCain in selecting her as his running mate in 2008, the MSM made her a force, and she is proving she can use that platform very effectively indeed.”


#28 Scott on 02.09.10 at 2:49 pm

Sorry, I forgot that everything is the fault of the liberals, including the “gee whiz” public persona of Sarah Palin.

#29 l3wis on 02.09.10 at 2:58 pm

Sy- I disagree with you on a ton of issues, you have probably proven me wrong 90% of the time. But I gotta say, you are fucking insane if you are defending this complete moron. I have said all along, if it weren’t for the cute smile and wink, no one would know who Sarah Palin is except the Wasilla, AK bonehead club.
