Barack Obama’s teleprompter has its own blog. And it has a Twitter page, too, in case you want to follow him. Both Drudge and Rush just picked up the blog, so expect it to go down soon. This is a very funny post about the teleprompter hiccup with the Irish PM:
Well, last night didn’t go well. What can I say? I was tired. By the time Barack and the Irish PM stood up, the President and I had already done two major policy speeches, three nomination announcements, and light dinner banter for a table of twelve. And by the way, that “ad lib” last night about Guinness? Mine.
So why am I going public now, when for the past two years I’ve let others do the talking? Well, this is a thankless job, and I sure don’t want to take the fall for communications missteps. But more important, I expect you’ll be seeing a lot more of me over the next few months and years. Barack and I don’t go anywhere without each other; we even complete each other’s sentences … well, more mine than his, but let’s not split hairs.
That is simply too delicious! I bookmarked the page and will be checking back often.
