TPM's Evan McMorris-Santoro catches Florida Governor Rick Scott making a teleprompter joke...while reading a teleprompter.
I'm fairly certain this isn't the first time, but I'm too lazy to look up others. Teleprompter jokes are wonderful, because they show exactly how little is needed to get these things started and embraced within the conservative marketplace -- in this case, essentially nothing at all. I believe that there was a news story concluding that Obama used a teleprompter one (twice? a few times?) for situations in which previous presidents might not have, but then again Obama has certainly held a fair number of press conferences, interviews, all-day health care summits, sessions with House Republicans, and other such things that he managed somehow or another to get through without a script. In other words, is based on nothing. And it certainly is a slur on his intelligence, albeit no worse than those that partisan Democrats hurled at George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan.
Now, there's also the question of what it is about Barack Obama that attracts conservatives to this particular idea, and whether they would have used the same thing had Hillary Clinton or John Edwards or Chris Dodd been elected president in 2008. I'll withhold my speculation on that one, however.
Anyway: nice catch!
