I have to say, I don’t understand all the fuss over teleprompters stirred by Palin’s snarky remarks at the National Tea Party Convention.
I could go the route of mocking her own scribbled hand-notes, but it’s already been done by every late-night host much funnier than I am (and the simple fact that “lift American spirit” was one of the notes is funnier than any quip I could possibly think up).
Instead I’m just going to quietly boggle at the idea that using notes — electronically scrolled behind the cameras or the less “elitist” magic marker palm-o-prompter — means a speaker is somehow a fraud.
