Eggs, Milk, Hope, Change
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs got a laugh when he let reporters see the notes on his hand today.
Gibbs' move was a jab at Sarah Palin, who was shown to have written notes on her hand at a speech at the Tea Party convention Saturday after making an implicit criticism of the president for using a TelePrompTer. Gibbs quipped that he had made the notes in case he and his family are snowed in by the storm approaching Washington. He said the words written on his hands included "eggs" and "milk" and that he had written "bread" but crossed it out. A close up of the palm also revealed the words "hope" and "change," which Gibbs said he included "just in case I forgot that."
