Just moments after giving a speech in which she mocked President Obama for using a Teleprompter, Sarah Palin was seen answering questions with the help of her Handprompter.
As TMZ put it, "Palin was back in 10th grade biology class," reading crib notes off her hand to help her answer pre-screened questions at the Tea Party Convention in Tennesse.
The words "energy," "budget" (which was crossed out in favor of "tax cuts") and "lift American spirit" were clearly visible on her hand.
See the close-up photo of Palin's cheat notes, plus watch the video of Palin consulting her hand as she answered softball questions from the Tea Partiers.
Needless to say, Palin is getting mocked from all corners over "Palm-gate."
