    Just something that has me confused.

    It appears many of the people who are attacking Palin seem to think that a 3 bullet point list used for a speech that took over an hour is the equivalent of reading an entire speech from a teleprompter.

    For those defending Palin, they seem to think that Sarah's running around the country giving the same speech (for the most part) is the same as a president who is giving multiple long speeches on a multitude of topics just about every day is the same thing.

    People get over the partisan bull crap. If you don't like her, fine, don't watch the shows she comes on, if you don't like the president's use of teleprompters...don't ignore the fact that most people use them today, just as people have used index cards and cue cards in the past.

    *sighs*

    I agree.

    The only reason I follow it is for the comedic relief.

    I don't take Palins Handgate or OL'BO's telepromter seriously. Just find it all way, way, way amusing. LOL

    Actually, the point was the hypocrisy of CELEBUTARD Palin insulting Obama for using a prompter moments before she used her own prompter.

    Like when LimpTard, who stutters like Porky Pig, hypocritically mocked Obama for his Ahhs. Or CELEBUTARD Palin demanding that Emanuel resign for using retard ONCE in private, but saying LimpTard's using it 40 times in one day on national media, including calling CELEBUTARD Palin's son a retard, and comparing people he jealously hates to retards many times for a full year BEFORE Emanuel is perfectly justified as "satire" based on Emanuel's one comment.

    CON$ do everything they attack Libs for and then some, so it's the HYPOCRISY that is the point.

    KIRAN CHETRY: Mmm'yeah, and he wasn't just quoting Rahm Emanuel. He went off on his own rant, as well.

    RUSH: Based on Emanuel! Based on continuing to embarrass Emanuel! You people don't understand.

    RUSH: This ad's working. This ad's working. They're not going to throw him under the bus. He's exactly right. She looks at the term celebrity as a pejorative. See, they are so offended. That's why they're out there saying, "This is going to diminish McCain. This is going to make him look small in so many people's eyes." Wrong. It's correctly identifying Obama -- and his audience! His audience is a bunch of celebutards, and he's a celebutard, and they know it. If they are so concerned about how this is diminishing McCain, then they should ask McCain to keep doing these kind of commercials. If these commercials hurt McCain, why, they ought to be out there saying, "Great ads, Senator! You need to expand on this theme that Obama is nothing but a celebutard."

    RUSH: Well, it depends on the celebutard in order to answer this question. For example, Oprah. You look at Oprah. She's a billionaire, right?

    If unemployment were at full employment levels, if we weren't getting bought up by the Chinese, if we weren't at war in two separate countries (some may say 3) I'd agree, it would be comic genius. Our country has far more important things to be working on instead of the constant bickering between the two major parties.

    I'd love to get both sides in the same room and tell them to work things out and neither can leave until the problems have been fixed. Give them gloves if they want to box a few rounds, but dammit, our country is floundering, and it seems both parties don't give a crap. All they want to do is outshine the other side so they can get re-elected.

    *another sigh*

    Okay...but I just can't get over the fact that Obama would bring TOTUS with him in order to talk to sixth-graders.

    My point is...SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!

    Who cares? Does it hurt your feelings that she attacks Obama? Does it hurt the feelings of those on the right when Sarah is attacked by the administration? If they are...too bad get over it. Deal with real issues, not the bullshit that the media keeps covering and the majority of the people lap up like the Grammy Awards or People Magazine.

    I worry more about what is written on the teleprompter than the fact that it is there.


    But having it at a news conference sort of makes the whole thing a farce.

    Why does it matter? Would you feel better if he sounded as stupid as President Bush did all of the time in his speeches? Would you feel your president was more like you if he stuttered and mispronounced words all of the time?

    Personally, I don't care what the president does in regards to speeches. What i care about is the content of the speeches and what is done after he walks away from the podium.

    Too many Americans seem to be tit for tat when it comes to politics these days. One side showing the hypocrisy of the other. It's non stop day after day...and what has that gotten us? A country in turmoil. Stop worrying about the way the president delivers a speech. Worry about the policies he is pushing in those speeches. Contact your Congressional representatives and let them know your thoughts...on policy, not on cue cards, hand written notes or teleprompters.

    Maybe if people wrote to FOX or MSNBC and told them to actually cover the news instead of these little pieces of red meat every day, the country would be able to get out of the problems through honest discussion, not the constant back and forth on meaningless topics.
