Watch CBS News Videos Online

President Obama held his first press conference since July today during the White House daily press briefing. After Obama took questions from the media, press secretary Robert Gibbs appeared, and took the time to mock Sarah Palin.

Palin was caught with talking points written on her hand during this past weekend’s “Tea Party” convention.

Gibbs wrote a grocery list on his hand, which he referred to during the briefing.

“I wrote eggs, milk and bread…I crossed out bread, just so I can make pancakes for Ethan if it snows, and then I wrote down hope and change just in case I forgot that,” he said.
