At her speech to the Tea Party Convention in Nashville, Sarah Palin reportedly referred to notes on her hand to answer questions asked by her fellow Republicans. The former vice presidential nominee, who has previously criticized President Obama for his use of teleprompters when speaking, is now under scrutiny for scribbling talking points that many think she should know well already. Thomas Jefferson Street blogger Mary Kate Cary says the incident is embarrassing for Palin and shows that she may not be ready for America's highest office in 2012. Others think the public should cut Palin a break.
