If he is, it's even worse than I thought

Salon today had an article about a "mysterious bulge" on the President's back, captured by (of all things) Fox News cameras at last week's debates. There's apparently been some discussion of late over whether the President is wired for sound. He's been caught at least once using an audio prompter, which, as one of these articles points out, is no sin; it's like a teleprompter for people who can't read. (Subtle jab.)

But if his mushmouthed debate performance was scripted, then man, they need to hire new writers.

Hey, here's an idea: naked debate! No wires, no handlers.


  • Hey, maybe it's body armor. Because if you think about it, strapped down the middle of your back is kind of a stupid place to put a receiver. Why not tuck it into one of your suit pockets? Velcro it in there, nice and snug, and nobody sees it.
