When TelePrompters Go Wild

I got a kick out of reading this from Yahoo this morning.

Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen was just a few paragraphs into an address at a St. Patrick's Day celebration at the White House when he realized something sounded way too familiar. Turns out, he was repeating the speech President Barack Obama had just given.

Cowen was set to speak twice at the White House on Tuesday night because there were two different parties going on at the executive mansion. No matter — he would give the same speech to the two different audiences.

But Cowen was 20 seconds into his second address when it dawned on him that he was giving word for word the speech that Obama had just read from the same teleprompter.

Maybe I should have kept this for Friday's Funny at TCD, but the Teleprompter Reader in Chief if his policies weren't so atrocious makes for good comedy.

Actually Shannon... Reagan got laughed at and mocked by liberals in the 1980s because when he'd come out to make a speech, he'd have a few notecards with bullet points he wanted to bring up, and the Left called him "Dumb" for it. Now we got this real dummy in the White House who read someone else's speech on the TelePrompter! lol

Maybe we'll see another speech from Obama that'll be like this.
