+ TheOne™ +

i generally avoid writing of political things and try to limit those discussions to actual in-person-conversations, but when good humor is present, sharing is in order.

can i just say, obama makes me laugh.

just when it seems that it's not possible for him to cause more of a ruckus, his dear little teleprompter steps up to his aid. unfortunately, his teleprompter is filling in as his little scapegoat (as if it were alive and had a mind of its own, and hence could be blamed), instead of just one more thing that obama miffs. either way, i respect the man for being the source of buckets of outrageous entertainment, and am fairly grateful.

Call for Obama's Teleprompter to Resign

Seriously.. who is the President anyway?

The person holding the title obviously can’t speak on his own, that means someone is feeding the teleprompter and that means that person is actually President. Who is that person? I don’t remember there being a vote for Teleprompter in Chief.

Then yesterday, as proof that the man holding the title is nothing but a talking head, it takes SkyNews to break the story (oh no U.S. media would not touch this one) but even SkyNews places the blame on the infernal glass panels. “A teleprompt blunder has led to Barack Obama thanking himself in a speech at the White House in a St Patrick’s Day celebration.”

The teleprompter is so powerful, it controlled the mindless drone who reads it.

in case you don't know what lee hempfling is talking about, check out yesterday's big news:

“Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen was just a few paragraphs into an address in Washington when he realised it all sounded a bit too familiar.

It was. He was repeating the speech President Barack Obama had just read from the same teleprompter.

Mr Cowen stopped, turned to the president and said: “That’s your speech.”

A laughing Mr Obama returned to the podium to take over but it seems the script had finally been switched and the US president ended up thanking himself for inviting everyone to the party.”

and dear lee's final thoughts on the matter...

Do you realize what that means? Obama is not smart enough to SEE WHAT THE WORDS ARE before spewing them forth. That means the TELEPROMPTER IS PRESIDENT.

So who exactly IS our President?

The Teleprompter should immediately resign before it gets Mr. Dumb in trouble again.

i do have some news of my own, however. apparently, the teleprompter is very much so alive and kicking, and even has a blog. please follow him, as he has an excellent sense of humor:
