Sarah Palin jokes about palm notes, blasts media, Obama

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is able to poke fun at herself about the notes she had written on her hand at a recent speech, yet still angrily criticized the White House and the media for starting the jokes.

In a speech at an Orange County Republican fundraiser, she repeatedly referred to getting caught with the notes written on her palm and one by one went through each of the thoughts she said she jotted : energy, tax cuts and lifting the American spirit.

In an obvious shot at President Barack Obama, she said she was "Busted for using a poor man's TelePrompTer. I was just kicking it old school. It's the way we used to do it."
