    Teleprompter problems evidently have a long history. Anyway, I endorse the policy of ”Piffoo blaboo”!

    And I totally agree with Mipt Speeb.

    I knew I should have kept up with my Esperanto studies.

    Wow. that’s the most coherent political speech I’ve heard since the King of Id gave his last one, earlier this year. (He managed to use English words, however.)

    Esperanto should be so Jello-like. It’s so over-regularized in its grammar and euphonics that it’s no wonder it never really caught on as a working language. Klingon will catch on as a world language before Esperanto will.

    Offhand I’d say Opus was reciting Vogon poetry. You know, the third worst poetry in the Universe, according to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy… :))

    “Oh freddled gruntbuggly/thy micturations are to me/As plurdled gabbleblotchits on a lurgid bee.

    Groop I implore thee, my foonting turlingdromes. And hooptiously drangle me with crinkly bindlewurdles,

    Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon, see if I don’t!”

    For being out of Print for the past few years funny how Breathed managed to predict Obama and his Teleprompter adiction. This was back when Obama was a Nobody Hack Community Nobody.

    I have this Idea for a SNL Sketch where somebody hacks into Obamas Teleprompter and replaces one of his speeches with “The Jaberwakie” (SP to early in the Morning to think Straight) from “Through the Looking Glass” … The punch line Nobody notices.

    Or Bush and his teleprompter addiction. Or Palin and her hand addiction. Or Reagan or any president since the thing was invented. Obama probably uses it more since he’s concerned with actually making sure he uses the language correctly. He gets misquoted enough as it is.

    Or O wants to make sure his current lie is coherent for the snooze media.

    “You guys are truly stupid!”

    Hay I bet he was using a teleprompter for that comment full of innanity ! Don’t get ticked at us because your elected high mucky muck can’t memorize his long winded rhetoric it just means hes (gasp!!!) human.. and not the next coming of the messiah.

    And let’s not forget how Ronnie would stop talking every time Nancy drank a glass of water.

    As for teleprompter hijinks, has anyone here seen the Pinky and the Brain episode “The Pink Candidate”?

    Don’t remember that one but I do reall the episode Meet John Brain where our erstwhile candidate had some teleprompter issues while trying to mesmerize the Voters

    When Reagan used a teleprompter it was ok. This is different with Obama because….

    Can somebody help me with that?

    Too bad Opus didn’t the Sarah Palin Method, then he could just wing it.
