Sarah Palin's Tea Party Convention Q&A

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin was the keynote speaker for a Tea Party convention in Nashville, Tennessee on February 6, 2010 (Ronald Reagan's 99th birthday). Following her remarks , she took time to respond to questions assembled by Tea Party Nation.

Note that she speaks here without a teleprompter.


  1. Um, yeah Without a teleprompter but WITH childish crib notes on her palm!

  2. Daisy, have you ever spoken in front of 600 people? When you do, it's likely you will want some notes at hand. Your comment implies that having notes makes a presenter less capable than one who uses a teleprompter. In fact, we'd argue the opposite: The formal teleprompter script makes the speaker appear smoother, but not genuine.

  3. It's not that she wrote the notes on her palm. It's what the notes said. She apparently needed help remembering CORE conservative principals! Tax cuts?!? Really? She was nearly our nation's VP and she didn't know what her core principal was. What does that say about how genuine she really is?
