This is a must see.  Sometimes Gibbs' melancholy demeanor drives me nuts.  But its moments like this that I'm proud to have him as Press Secretary.

In your face Quitter from Wasilla!

Gibbs pwns Sarah Palin

Transcription to come.


There’s some in their party that want to do away with, as you saw during the Presidential campaign, the entire, uh, oh I wrote a few things down.

{Then he looks at his hands and turns left hand toward the camera.  Media laughs.}

I wrote, I wrote, uh, I wrote, I wrote eggs, milk, and bread.  I crossed out bread.  Just so I can, uh, make pancakes for Ethan if it snows.  And then, and then I wrote down hope and change just in case I forgot, uh, that.

Pretty good, pretty good.

MSNBC does a write-up on the pwn.

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.

White House pokes fun at Palin

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
