At least, if you believe the American Spectator, which admirably deadpans this hysterically funny revelation:
"It looked scripted beyond the scripted part, the speech," says one former communications adviser, who has been feeding notes and suggestions to the White House team and worked with them on the inauguration. "Every president has gone into one of these things knowing that there were some pre-arranged questions or journalists to be called on, but this one was pretty ham-handed."
To that end, he says, the White House is looking to install a small video or computer screen into the podium used by the president for press conferences and events in the White House. "It would make it easier for the comms guys to pass along information without being obvious about it," says the adviser.
Dan Riehl, once he finished laughing at everybody who screeched about Bush and earpieces in 2004, went on... no, wait, Dan never actually stopped laughing at those poor, deluded folks. Hard to blame him for that, really.
