Seriously, I don't get the whole thing about Palin writing on her hand. There's supposed to be some great irony that she wrote on her hand and criticized Obama for his teleprompter addiction, but those two things aren't remotely in the same ballpark.
The prompter issue is about Obama's need to read verbatim every word that comes out of his mouth, lest he sound like a rambling fool. Palin cribbed a few bullet points.
I don't get it.
Maybe it's déclassé to write on one's hand. Is that it? Whatever.
