Read my... hand.

We'll be looking at her hand forever. She caught us in that hand.

Your assignment today is to practice the expressions in English that use the word "hand" and to make all the snarky comments about Sarah Palin's hand.

Or here, maybe you can do something with this "Seinfeld" dialogue:
Jerry: I know, you told me you like her, everything is going good.

George: No everything is not going good. I'm very uncomfortable. I have no power. I mean, why should she have the upper hand. Once in my life I would like the upper hand. I have no hand-- no hand at all. She has the hand; I have no hand. How do I get the hand?

Jerry: We all want the hand. Hand is tough to get. You gotta get the hand right from the opening.


GEORGE: Jerry, let me tell you something, "A man without hand is not a man." I got so much hand I'm coming out of my gloves.


NOEL: I ... am breaking up ... with you!

GEORGE: You can't break up with me. I've got hand.

NOEL: And you're going to need it.
That's my favorite "Seinfeld" episode, by the way. And Noel's final line is ... unbeatable.

And: Talk to the hand.

Palin has the libs rights where she wants them....in the palm of her hand. They just can't see the writing on the ...er...wall. It's going to fun to watch.

But on the other hand, as one lefty poster wrote week, she's irrelevant.

I have to hand it to you, Professor. You like Palin, hands down.

Ann Althouse said...

"I have to hand it to you, Professor. You like Palin, hands down."

Oh... that reminds me of a video clip I need to put up.

Meade said...

And when I touch you I feel happy inside
It's such a feeling that, my love,
I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide

Yeah, you got that something
I think you'll understand
When I feel that something
I want to hold your hand

Talk to the hand.

Or, as Quasy dog puts it, "Talk to the paw".

Ann Althouse said...

*holds hand*

Nothing says "good morning" like an Althousian wink at onanism.

SteveR said...

Talk to the elbow, you're not worth a hand.

Great episode BTW.

Terri said...

Love her because she "gets it". Writing "hi Mom" on her hand at a Perry event in Texas was pure brilliance. Love this version of "flipping the bird" to those obsessive types!

DADvocate said...

As my daughter says, "Talk to the booty. The hand's off duty."

AllenS said...

Higher, higher, higher and higher
Now can you hand-jive, baby?
Oh can you hand-jive, baby?
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah
Born to hand-jive, oh yeah!

I thought you were going to quote the one where Jerry's girlfriend had "man hands." That's a great one, too.

I'm surprised that this didn't get a comment from you on the Robert Mitchum character's hands in Night of The Hunter.

Payton Manning had written on his hand yesterday:

"Deep pass down field Left"

traditionalguy said...

They say that the new nickname for the tea party guys' leader is The Palm Pilot. She is quite a device.

mariner said...

I was hoping she'd do something like this. Now she has, and it's working beautifully.

I love it when a hand comes together.

Ok, just so we've nailed it down:

Obama using a teleprompter... haha, look at how dumb he is, he can't even memorize his speeches!

Sarah Palin, leader of the Teabaggers, having to rely on the gradeschool technique of writing important info on her hand: So?

Its like you guys don't even care that you're incoherent anymore.

Phil 314 said...

Is Sarah Palin the sound of one hand clapping?

traditionalguy said...

Exordium...That was an incoherent accusation. Obama is free to read his speeches so as not to waste his time learning them word for word. It helps that he pronounces well, and lots of smart people have a mild dyslexia. But how is that comparable to the effective and unlosable bullet point reminder list preferred by Palin for her speeches? Neither one is a "cheating". And everybody knows that she is not a child for doing it her way. The President's way is more a Ron Burgandy method. Both are acceptible.

Phil 314 said...

To f/u on tg's comments. There's just no way to positively spin this image.

As Jon Stewart said "WTF"

reader_iam said...

So many hands, so little time.

PCachu said...

As Tony Stark might say it: Talk to the repulsor.

I can't believe no one mentioned the sexual favor relating to a "manual occupation."
