#rsrh Breitbart.com asks WI Dems whether Obama should have been allowed a teleprompter…

…and slightly painful hilarity ensues.


For those who have wandered on over from the Other Side: the ‘hilarity’ part is that the question was even taken seriously by anybody. Obama didn’t have a Teleprompter at that debate for the same reason that he didn’t have a tuba: it wouldn’t have done him a damn bit of good. IT WAS A DEBATE! And – as 70 million people* could directly attest to – in a debate the idea is that the two (in this case) debaters talk to each other and argue with each other. For that matter, at least theoretically speaking the questions are not known in advance. Try writing a canned response for a question that you don’t know the exact wording of, sometime; it’s not that it’s hard to do, it’s that it’s impossibly hard to be worth doing. So… NO. Teleprompter BAD.

That’s the hilarity. The painful part is that clearly our university system keeps finding new and exciting nadirs of critical reasoning and introspection, suitable for throwing college students into. Either that, or 22 year old kids are ALWAYS that dumb; which I hope isn’t true, because it means that I was once just that bad and am merely fortunate that social media was not there to catch my rain of idiocy.

*Incredibly bad time for the Democrats to have the USA to wake up and say Hey, we’re having an election again this year, huh?

    All our rains of idiocy actually. It might have been fun to give O’Bama a teleprompter then others could see he’s just a ventriloquists dummy. Nothing but a talking parrot of other peoples words.

  • I can distinctly remember heading home on the bus from grad school, and sitting in back of two college kids who, from their conversation were sophomores, eavesdropping on their conversation and thinking OMG, I that what I sounded like two years ago? I probably did.

    The question is hysterical, and no one recognizes that to be the case. No one also recognizes that Obama’s failure to improve the economy is a problem. He just needs more time.

    22 yros have always been morons. Unfortunately, it is a condition that is exacerbated by a society that keeps them in dependency as “students”. Fortunately, it is a condition that almost always improves with age.

    The age for voting should be raised from 18 (that was ridiculous) to 28, which is the age at which most men’s brains mature.

    If you’re 22 you are not a child.

    In which case, these are stupid men and women.

  • Rick Choe says:

    No, not ALL 22 year olds. There are some 20 year old MEN leading other men in life and death situations in Afghanistan. Sad to think that the idiots are probably the next generation of government leaders.

  • There is no way to segue from campaigning against a strawman to debating the real McCoy.
