Palm reading and Tea leaves

We all know how much the left likes to mock, insult, demean, and belittle the tea parties and tea partiers. We also know they direct the same verbal assault on Palin. The left took two for the price of one this time.

At the National Tea Party Convention, Palin did a little palm reading. It is amazing at how all the leftist pundits are mocking Palin because she had a few words written on her palm. Ok, I don't know why she did it. Maybe she ran out of index cards to write down a few key points. While it may be odd that she wrote on her palm, it is absolutely ridiculous that the left was mocking her for it.

It seems that someone needs to point out the obvious.

On the one side, Palin delivered an entire speech with a few notes on her palm, sans teleprompter. In fact, she has delivered many speeches without a teleprompter. Maybe she always does a little palm reading. Even if you are not a fan of Palin, at least you know that she knows what she wants to say.

Alternatively, Obama on the other hand, needs a teleprompter to deliver a speech to 11 year old school children. He can't seem to give a speech to anyone without a teleprompter, and even then, he messes that up. Maybe it is the teleprompter swivel that throws off his game. Maybe it gives him whiplash. I don't know. I do know that it is clear that he has no idea what he wants to say.

Now, the obvious point. The left mocks Palin for palm reading, but thinks it is perfectly acceptable for Obama, the leader of the free world, to need a teleprompter for speaking to 11 year olds, yet doesn't see how ridiculous they look.

Perhaps the left has spent a little too much time in the carnival funhouse viewing Obama in the reality distorting mirrors. I think it is time that the left stopped to read some tea leaves and do a little palm reading of their own. Perhaps then they will grasp the true message. Palin and the tea partiers have key points to make and know what they want to say, while Obama is only an illusion in a carnival funhouse to try to fool you to see something that isn't real. Except the left doesn't see that the destruction of our nation is actually the house of horrors, and unfortunately this time, it is not an illusion.

  1. Think about it:

    Obama makes prodigious use of the teleprompter, a tool specifically designed to make it appear to a television audience that he is speaking extemporaneously, without notes, when in fact he is reading everything word for word.

    Palin speaks from notes, on paper (and her hand), a practice which cannot be hidden from an audience (especially on TV), a practice which has always supplemented true extemporaneous speech, used by countless great orators since, well, forever.

    So Obama is a faker, and Palin is a communicator of the old school. The really old school.
