From the Tennessean...
Some media outlets were giving Sarah Palin a hard time Monday for apparently consulting notes written on the palm of her hand during her weekend appearance at the Tea Party convention in Nashville.
The notes consisted of reminders such as "energy," "budget," "tax" and a call to "lift American spirit."
Some commentators noted that during her speech to the convention, Palin mocked President Barack Obama for his habit of using a Teleprompter.
Palin supporters, meanwhile, pointed out that the former Alaska governor responded to "Palm-gate" in an appearance Sunday for Texas Gov. Rick Perry. This time, she wrote on her hand: "Hi, Mom!"
