God wrote on His palm, too.
"Hey, if it's good enough for God, scribbling on the palm of His hand, it's good enough for me, for us," Palin said to laughs at an Ohio Right to Life fundraiser Friday, according to a YouTube video.
Palin said she got her new excuse from a Bible verse and it was a godsend.
The former GOP vice-presidential candidate has been struggling to explain why she referred to her palm notes to remember her three core beliefs - after mocking President Barack Obama for using teleprompters.
"I didn't really have a good answer, as so often is me," Palin said, according to a Huffington Post transcript.
"But then somebody sent me the other day, Isaiah 49:16, and you need to go home and look it up," she said.
"He says in that passage, 'I wrote your name on the palm of my hand to remember you.'
"And I'm like, 'OK, I'm in good company.' "
The King James version of the Bible verse says: "Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me."
It apparently refers to the walls of Jerusalem.
