Breaking GOP Hypocrisy News

Nashville -- Sarah Palin's speech at the first ever Teabagger Convention included ridiculing  President Obama's  occasional use of a teleprompter, but  today's HuffPo Exclusive reveals shocking proof that the popular political diva Teabagger to the Trailer Court Set, Sarah Palin  relies upon handy technogadgetry to assist  during her speaking engagements, too!

Sarah Palin demonstrated how to operate the new "Tennessee Teleprompter" technology  to a room full of faithful "teabaggers" by scrawling a few important, challenging words on her hand and bypassing cost-prohibitive, confusing technologies like teleprompters altogether. Stefan Sirucek explains:

"Closer inspection of a photo of Sarah Palin, during a speech in which she mocked President Obama for his use of a teleprompter, reveals several notes written on her left hand. The words "Energy", "Tax" and "Lift American Spirits" are clearly visible. There's also what appears to read as "Budget cuts" with the word Budget crossed out."

Unconfirmed reports that Palin was paid $100,000 for her speaking appearance in Nashville may also indicate  the GOP's direction to forgo the more costly teleprompter technology and pocket the difference in lieu of the old-school, fifth-grader's invisible hand of the cheat sheet. (Memo to Sarah: Savvy speakers who have graduated from the kids' table tend to choose teleprompters.)

While  many  teabaggers who love Sarah Palin - do not command lucrative speaking fees or have health insurance or even jobs to pay for new wheels on their  homes, Sarah's handy demonstration at the very least reaffirms that no one can accuse the GOP of not being - among other things -- resourceful. Or hypocritical.

Suggestions for her next surprise book title include "The Woman Who Mistook Her Hand for a Chat."

It's "organic" alright.

So is the great fun piling on Palin, despite the fact she is nothing but a sideshow when it comes to standing on issues (like Obama, too)

What specific issues?

1. Stop job outsourcing/insourcing U.S. jobs

2. Universal healthcare

3. Get the U.S. out of Afghanistan

4. Stop foreign campaign payoffs

5. Restore the 91% tax rate
