WASHINGTON (AP) – Even the White House’s top spokesman is getting in on the act of mocking former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin for looking to talking points written on her palm during a speech to “tea party” activists.
Robert Gibbs showed the words “hope” and “change” on his hand as he started his daily briefing with reporters on Tuesday. [Note: He also included a short ‘grocery list’ on his hand. – ST]
Many in the room, where President Barack Obama had spoken just moments before about the need for bipartisanship, groaned at the political shot.
CBS has the vid.
The blogprof is short, sweet and to the point:
Note the reaction from the White House Press Corps (corpse?) was not one of laughter but initially one of dismay that such a classless tactic was used by an Obama minion to mock a private citizen, something that used to be far below the office of the president.
