    Fox News has been hyping Sarah Palin’s appearance on the Fox News Sunday Show, as if she had the guts to do a Sunday panel show like the rest of the candidates will. But of course, Sarah Palin repeated already debunked right wing Pinocchios as fed to her by her teleprompter.



    As I wrote in when I first revealed the Sarah Palin teleprompter dependency in December of 2010, “At a Tea Party speech, Ms Palin mocked the President by saying, “This is about the people, and it’s bigger than any one king or queen of a Tea Party, and it’s a lot bigger than any charismatic guy with a teleprompter.” You must fill in the requisite sneer for full effect. The implication is that the President is a moron for using a teleprompter. This is made clear by the Right’s gleeful picking up of this meme and running with it at every turn, especially when they have nothing relevant over which to criticize the President.

    …(during an episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska) she was showing us her studio in the house she built next door to her home on Lake Lucille. Sarah and Todd were making a show of how it was just the two of them putting on her little show. And while she made cute and Todd told her her hair was above his pay grade, I saw the evil socialist machine staring me down, clear as day. So clear that I could read the logo. Yes, a teleprompter.”

    Although every politician uses a TelePrompter at one point or another, you have to love the delicious irony of Palin using one after blasting Obama about it.

    Do we have not one person in this country who can multitask mentally and speak without some aides notes on a screen? It's not that difficult.

    ALL, and I do mean ALL public figures who give scheduled formal public speeches, and ALL commentators, newscasters, and entertainers giving live monologues use some form of notes and, these days, most often use a teleprompter. The fact that Sarah Palin uses one for her television show makes her normal, not hypocitical. Nor is it unusual when she is the scheduled speaker to use a teleprompter. She did the night she was named Vice Preident candidate. It malfunctioned, remember? And she winged a lot of it and did great.

    So yeah, not cool to gig somebody for using a teleprompter when you use one, but Sarah doesn't use one for random interviews, for just saying a few extemporaneous remarks, Sarah is an articulate and effective speaker with or without a teleprompter.

    President Obama sounds like a shy, misinformed stuttering school boy when he doesn't have his teleprompter. Which is why he takes his teleprompter almost everywhere and so infrequently takes unscripted questions. Even his Vice President has teased him about it.

    He works pretty hard not to have any more embarrassing performances like this one:

    Palin was sure lost without her teleprompter when she discussed Paul Revere warning the British.

    Obama should release his college records so he can show everyone just how smart he really is!
