Of course not. He does not fall into the category of "they". ;)

It's not a big deal. Before they existed, people used notecards, and I've seen Ron Paul use those.

Flame away, but she gave a great speech. Obama should be freaking glad she's not running for President.

This whole thing reminds me of the Charles and Diana stuff. He was royalty, but she upstaged his stodgy butt without even really trying to.

Did you see McCain come out and horn in on her spotlight? This could get freaking ugly.

What I found odd was that the television cameras were positioned to show the teleprompters - sure they all use them, but usually the cameras are angled to leave them out of frame.

I am not voting McCain regardless, but I do see this as more media manipulation (i.e. make her look insincere or that she is being fed lines). That's just my gut feeling.

that she is being fed lines

The entire speech is a 'fed line' (pun intended). Bush speechwriter Matthew Scully had alot to do with the speech.

99% of political speeches delivered for a TV audience have the teleprompters.

Wore you watching CNN? They have chewed her to pieces the past few days, They are sleeping with Obama, the attacks on Palin by the CNN commentators are disgusting, reminds me of Anderson Pooper vs. Ron Paul :mad:

I was kinda glad she attacked back the MSM and funny thing is CNN actually was careful to say anything negative now, and actually praising what a great speech it was... :rolleyes:

Palin was just reading a teleprompter like a trained monkey- thats what most politicians do.

Ron Paul, however, did NOT use a teleprompter at the rally.
