Sarah Palin Uses Hand Notes To Defend Bush Tax Cuts On 'Fox News Sunday' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Back in February, Sarah Palin was widely mocked for writing crib notes on her hand for an appearance at a Tea Party convention. Now the former vice-presidential candidate has used the trick again.

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," Palin criticized the Obama administration's plan to let the Bush tax cuts expire at the end of the year.

"[Obama's] commitment to let previous tax cuts expire are going to lead to even fewer job opportunities for Americans," Palin said. "It's idiotic to think about increasing taxes at a time like this."

"My palm isn't large enough to have written all my notes down on what this tax increase, what it will result in," Palin continued.

Host Chris Wallace noticed that Palin did indeed have something written on her palm. "Can I ask you, what do you have written on your hand?" he asked.

"$3.8 trillion in the next 10 years," Palin responded, "so I didn't say $3.7 trillion and then get dinged by the liberals saying I didn't know what I was talking about."
