Okay, given Obama’s reputed dependence on prepared text for his charismatic orating, and recent slips like his slavishly reading another person’s speech the other day (and thereby oddly thanking himself for hosting the event), this blog is just hilarious: “Barack’s TelePrompter — Reflections from the hard drive of the machine that enables the voice of the leader of the free world.

It’s days like this that make me miss the days when He and I would walk the streets of Chicago, doing community activism. Sure, it took Him 30 minutes to set me up, and sometimes he couldn’t get the extension cord to reach an electrical outlet, or the folks he wanted to talk to would walk off because they had better things to do, or the glare off my screen made his remarks unreadable. But it was a simpler time, when he could stay on script and didn’t feel the need to “speak his mind,” and we were a team. All I know, is it’s going to be a long flight home.
