No Prompting Necessary to Support McCain/Palin

Did you here the one about the guy who brought a Teleprompter to the Rodeo?

Did you here the one about the guy who brought a Teleprompter to the Rodeo?

For the record, when you deliver a major speech such as the “State of the Union”, or a nationally televised acceptance speech from a Greek Temple, people use a teleprompter. But when you speak from the heart, often you don’t need a written speech. When you know the subject matter and believe what you are saying because it is from your core, you may occasionally, rely on some notes. But when you simply read words, you need to be reminded what is is you are actually reading. You have to stick to the script, you use a teleprompter.

Last time I was at a rodeo, I didn’t see anyone using a teleprompter. But BHO relied on his best friend at his speech reading at the Colorado Stat Fair yesterday. The irony of BHO at a rodeo vs. Rodeo Drive is stunning. Of course, there are a lot clowns & a lot of Bull$#!+ at a rodeo so it may be appropriate after all. But here’s the point. The “Fluff” V. P. Republician Candidate, according a supporter at a Joe Biden Rally in Michigan (I believe they were meeting in a phone booth), did not need to rely on a teleprompter when she made her acceptance speech at the RNC:

Sarah Palin electrified the Republican convention Wednesday, all the while reading off a faulty teleprompter and an outdated draft, John McCain officials told FOX News on Thursday. The Alaska governor overcame several glitches and technical problems to deliver her speech without getting flustered, impressing McCain and his staff and allowing them to breathe a sigh of relief. (FoxNews)

She spoke from her heart, they were her words (Yes, she had a speech writer, all of them do) but she delivered. I don’t know who is advising BHO & Joe, (I guess I would need to see the credit roll on his teleprompter screen) but they are B league at best. You don’t ask paralyzed State Senators to “Stand-up”, you don’t run ads about McCain mocking his inability to “send emails” (5-1/2 years of torture while a POW serving His country resulted in damage to his extremities), you don’t take a teleprompter to a rodeo. And you sure don’t wear a Cowboy Hat when your from Chicago…
