Sarah Palin: God Writes On Palm Also

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The former Alaskan governor (Sarah Palin) was speaking at an Ohio Right to Life fund-raiser last week when she addressed the palm-writing incident that occurred at a Tea Party convention last month and earned her so much media mockery.

sarah palin`I didn`t [at the time] have a good answer to that criticism because I thought it was so ridiculous,` Palin told the nearly 3,000 people at the event.

But now the 46-year-old GOP star has her response:

`If it was good enough for God, scribbling on the palm of his hand, it`s good enough for me,` Palin said to cheers from the crowd, who laughed along with her.

Writing crib notes on your palm is something dull elementary school students sometimes resort to, to pass a difficult exam. It`s uncomfortable and difficult for an adult, nevermind a seasoned politician, to explain relying on such a crude method to remember information. It`s not surprising that is took Sarah Palin so long to address the issue.

Palin was speaking to a Right to Life gathering when she tackled the "crib notes" issue, any explanation would have sufficed for this loyal Palin constituency. Palin ( I will give her the benefit of the doubt that she was joking) basically said: God did the same thing, I`m in good company. She quoted Isaiah 49:16: See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.

I wonder how many times Sarah had to write Todd`s name on her palm before she remembered it? It would be fascinating to glimpse all the things that Palin has written on her hands throughout the years.

Right to Lifers would accept any explanation that invokes the Almighty, and Palin`s words were met with thundering applause. But the rest of America still thinks that Palin is a dim bulb, and I have faith that my fellow Americans would never elect Palin as the next President of the United States. Right????
