Gibbs mocks Palin -- but we suspect a crush 

The highest form of flattery! Robert, declare yourself!  (ap photo)

Beltway Confidential knows a crush when she sees one. How else to explain the relentless mocking and teasing we get from Freddoso, Hemingway and Freire?

So it goes with White House press secretary Robert Gibbs and the former governor of Alaska. Gibbs showed up at the podium today with a bunch of words written on his palm. Adorable!

"I wrote a few things down. I wrote eggs milk and bread, but I crossed out bread just so I can make pancakes for Ethan if it snows," Gibbs said, revealing his handiwork. "Then I wrote down hope and change just in case I forgot that."

The object of Gibbs' barely concealed fascination is Sarah Palin, who recently addressed the Tea Party convention with notes on her hand that said "energy," "tax cuts" and "lift American spirits."

Awww!
