Norah Still Mocking Palin Hand-Notes

It's been almost three weeks since Sarah Palin addressed the Tea Party convention.  More than two weeks since Andrea Mitchell did her taunting little imitation of Palin's hand notes.  But there was Norah O'Donnell today, still milking the moment to mock Palin.

O'Donnell worked her hand-note reference into a discussion on today's Morning Joe of Scott Brown's vote for the "jobs bill."  

Later, on a different subject, after criticizing socialism, Norah wryly observed "I sound like I'm on another network." See Bonus Coverage, below.

After extolling the virtues of the bill, an animated O'Donnell exclaimed:

"These are things Republicans championThese are things Sarah Palin writes on her hand!"

The panel later discussed the record bonuses being handed out on Wall Street.  O'Donnell opined that there was nothing necessarily wrong with that so long as the banks had repaid their government loans.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Do you think that's where most Americans are?  That if you paid us back--OK, you made a lot more this past year than we're comfortable with, but give the bonuses out because we don't owe --

NORAH O'DONNELL: Oh, sure. We shouldn't live in a socialist country--I sound like I'm on another network--where the government dictates [executive pay].

Joe jokingly interpreted O'Donnell's "another network" as a reference to Jake Tapper's ABC.  But we all know network what Norah had in mind!
