VIDEO: "Now step away from the teleprompter," said Sarah Palin reading from a teleprompter at #CPAC2013

Apparently Republicans are still, still, making idiotic references to President Obama's use of teleprompters. I've called out their hypocrisy on that repeatedly, and I've also written a few times about why teleprompters are a good thing. Please link over to read why they’re not as terrible as the GOP keeps saying they are.

In fact, Rick Santorum actually said, “It should be illegal to read off a teleprompter.”

And back at CPAC 2010 "Genius" 14-year-old speaker made a lame teleprompter joke. By the way, he's older, wiser, and no longer a conservative.

Did I mention that Marco Rubio mocked Obama’s teleprompter…while in front of a teleprompter?

Oh, and there's this:

And now this:

"Now step away from the teleprompter and do your job!" said Former Half-Gov Hypo McCritical as she read those words from a teleprompter.

I taught comedy for years, and there are a few rules that anyone attempting humor in front of an audience and who has the least bit of comedic talent knows. Palin broke at least three of them: 1) Be, you know, funny 2) Be fresh, don't rely on the same old stale material, and 3) Know when to stop.

    The Palin clan should not diss "bad reality TV", as it has become their meal ticket.

    my favorite comment love it

    She needs a new routine, this one is old and other than that collection of lunatics at CPAC, no one cares anymore what she has to say...because she never actually says anything of substance.

    I'd hit it

  • She also had this to say:

    "We don’t have leadership coming out of Washington, we have reality television.”

    That's right -- the woman whose "Sarah Palin's Alaska" was cancelled after nine episodes and falling ratings, is complaining about reality television.

    You can't make this sh*t up . . .

  • There's a fourth rule she broke (I call it the Robin Williams Rule): If you are going to steal other people's material, steal from the best, not the worst.

    Jeebus, that was such an old schtick.

    More petty snarkisms from the Whining Wannabe from Wasilla.

    Sarah apparently thought it was "open mic" night at the local backwater comedy club, as she cannot help but substitute insightful, substantive commentary with lame insults and banal banter.

    Sarah loves to cite the overused snipe about "teleprompters" when insulting the POTUS, mainly because she misinterpreted her handlers' recommendation to utilize "digital media" during her stump speeches ... and therefore used a Sharpie to write crib notes on the palm of her hand.

    Well, at least she applied rule no. 3 while governor . . .
