It is not uncommon for many of us who do a lot of lecturing to jot down on our hands a few salient points that we plan to cover during a talk. Although I am not a particularly ardent supporter of Sarah Palin, I cannot understand why she is being castigated for this common practice.

Interestingly, her critics seem to find no issue with our commander in chief reading his speeches word-for-word from a teleprompter. Yet President Obama is often referred to as a great speaker, not merely a good reader. After all, isn’t he just reading the speeches someone else wrote for him?
