Teleprompt Me, Baby
Illuminating that special relationship between a man and his brain
Obama and his teleprompter are big news lately. As Vodka Pundit noted in his weekly summary, the right-o-sphere saw the meteoric rise of a new star, Barack Obama’s Teleprompter’s blog last week. Also last week, an hilarious twitpic by Right Scoop (see photo upper right) made the rounds, even garnering an approving mention by Maja Rushie himself. The Tonight Show special olympics slam only further illuminates the crux of the issue.
Some liberals pretend not to understand what the fuss is about. They pretend not to understand that we are saying Obama can’t make words happen without his binky. Ed Morrissey calls these “totally lost” moments Obamateurisms. With all the noise being made, and even the mainstream press unable to dodge it, I thought I’d put together a little photo essay featuring The One and his Number One to straighten things out. So please, join me for a walk down memory lane in a photo show I call “Binky: A Man and His Brain” … (full size pics below the fold)
Ahh memories. The video featured a few photoshop jobs to drive the point home. Please find them below full size.

I call the next one “OHHH, lighten up. It’s a joke!”
I knew Liefeld was carrying water for Obama but YEESH.
Binky knows when trouble is afoot:
Needs no editing but … why don’t you go ahead and photoshop it anyway?
And there you have it. Now let’s see what photoshoppery you can give in return. I’m calling this a teleprompter contest, and the winner gets a free bumper sticker from the Redstate store. I’ll run it for 2 days, and judging will be carried out by Redstate contributors. Enter by comment below. Just check the TelePrompTer before you say anything!
