#rsrh What’s worse than having Walter Mondale…

…give you political advice?

Walter Mondale being right.

“He uses these idiot boards to read speeches in television, and I think he loses the connection that he needs emotionally with American voters,” Mondale said in an interview set to air this evening on CNN’s The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, according to a transcript from the network.

But that’s not the best part! The best part is Ben Smith’s update, where ‘a source’ (that’s Beltway for ‘a White House official wanting a little payback for being lectured by Walter Mondale’) wanted to make sure that people knew that Mondale would be using his own idiot board at a rally tomorrow.  Normally I’d assume that it was Rahm Emanuel who ‘leaked’ that – it’s ineffectual and petty, after all – but Rahm’s gone off to the Emerald City.  Something about getting a heart*…

Via Hot Air.

One thought on “#rsrh What’s worse than having Walter Mondale…”

  1. Walter Mondale might not be right on this one. When’s the last time you saw Obama try to speak without a teleprompter? The man seems constitutionally incapable of giving a speech without one. Without the teleprompter use during the campaign, McCain probably would have won by 15 points.

    That’s the thing about manufactured candidates, they *can’t* speak extemporaneously.
