White House Press Briefing: Robert Gibbs Mocks Sarah Palin

Even White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs got into the act funning Sister Sarah, Queen of the Teabaggers. Watch:

Palin's hand job just shows all of us what kind of dullard we are up against. WOW and some call her a leader....please.

I don't see her as presidential material. However, I don't know which is worse: talking points scribbled on your palm like in high school debate, OR speeches written out word for word on a teleprompter. For me, it is a toss up.
And Gibbs does not have a funny bone in his body. Although I don't really care he was poking fun at Sarah Palin, his timing is just tragic. I wonder who put him up to it.

She might not be presidential material but she can win the GOP nomination. Republicans are scared to death about that.

Re: the teleprompter, you forget (is this intentional with Republicans?) one minor detail: President Obama writes his own speeches, and he's written two books -- no ghost writers -- HIMSELF. Those who trash him for reading from a teleprompter are spitting into the wind. It's a common thing for world leaders giving a speech. The days of shuffling papers on a podium for major speeches disappeared decades ago. Reagan was just as good as Obama with a teleprompter. Not so GWB, who squints a lot and needs index cards or a folder with about five BIG words per page/card.

I'm surprised you'd bring this non-issue up after the president demolished 140 House Republicans with no teleprompter or notes, using nothing but his superior intellect.

Re: Robert Gibbs. I thought it was amusing. He's a nice guy; everyone in the WH press corps likes him, even that Major what's his name from Fixed News.
