Tele Flubbies

Have you heard the latest meme in the wankosphere? It’s that President Obama--gasp!--uses a teleprompter. Wow, I’m totally regretting my vote for him now!

You know the media is having a hard time figuring out how to cover this new president when even Maureen Dowd has to weigh in on the issue.

Seriously, every president since the gadget was invented has used one of these things. Why, not too long ago the wankosphere gleefully spread a myth that Sarah Palin was able to give a speech without one, which they used as proof of her overwhelming awesomeness. Except it never happened. Hey, it’s a good story anyway.

So what’s the big deal about the Obama-teleprompter story? Cripes, I wish President Bush had used one more often, it might have kept him from sounding like such an illiterate pondering “is our children learning” and how to “make the pie higher” and all.
