Gibbs Mocks Palin, Reads Grocery List Off His Hand
In a dig at former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs took time during Tuesday's briefing to read a mock grocery list that he had written in pen on his left hand.

"Eggs, milk and bread," Gibbs read from the black ink stains on his palm, claiming he was going to "make pancakes" for his son Ethan.

"But I crossed out bread," he added, pointing to the line that, indeed, x-ed bread off the list.

"Then I wrote down hope and change just in case I forgot them."

The obvious dig at Palin drew giggles from the press corp. The former vice presidential candidate turned darling of the far right has been getting ribbed for writing crib notes on her left hand before a question and answer session at the Tea Party convention on Saturday night.
Obviously it wasn't the most appropriate remark for a press secretary to make, but this certainly isn't outrageous, nor is it the first time a press secretary has taken a dig at a political opponent.

Frankly, I'm tired of seeing her play victim every time someone responds to one of her remarks. Her supporters also seem to be in love with the "private citizen" card.

It was unprofessional, yet humorous. I am no fan of Palin. She used her child as a means to further herself. Rush Limbaugh clearly called Democrats "retarded," and Palin fell all over herself in defending what he did, which was the same thing that Rahm Emmanuel did. She is a hypocrite that offers nothing in the way of actual solutions, and instead mocks the current administration (which often gets in its own way) and tosses out vague Republican generalities, the same ideas the GOP has been throwing out the last 40 years. She plays to those that are anti-intellectuals and themselves stand for nothing more than generalities such as lower taxes and less spending.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Her double-standard for Rush Limbaugh's comments was absolutely appalling, and simply affirmed that her criticisms are masked cries for attention.
