It did not seem to matter! As was evident after the first "debate," the White House Lying Pretzel still got "clobbered" by his opponent. So Karl Rove is no "genius" after all! Or it could be that, one could lead a Pretzel to a debate, but one cannot turn a mental midget into intellectual heavy even with remote control?

Those pictures don't necessarily tell me anything.

The reason why I think he wears a wire are the way he was speaking during the debate, and more significantly, multiple reports by people who were listening to a Bush speech half a year ago that was broadcast on CNN or similar, and in the audio, one could hear the words Bush was about to speak before he said them in a quiet, but clearly different voice at a different pace. There wasn't just one report of someone claiming this, but apparently there is a tape somewhere. '' has more details.

As someone else said, so what?

This Admin is one lie after another. Why on earth would anyone expect Bush would be allowed to speak without a monitor?

What a Disgrace! This modern-day Hunchback of Notre Damned can't even speak a coherent sentence on the most important debate of his Life, wire or no wire.

I'd fire his whole coaching staff, starting with Rove--the self-proclaimed 'genius' of media spinners. Anyway, wouldn't it easier just to install Slicky Halliburton Dick as the "interim" prez(like what we did to Hamid Karzai in Afghany), and do away with the Nov. election altogether, by claiming that "Sept. 11 changed EVERYTHING!" No more 'electile disfunction' like what we had in Florida back in 2000.

As long as America acts like Imperial Rome(which we are doing, with our foreign legions in over 100 nations across the Planet to protect our 'vital interests') we might as well re-coronate our very own Emperor, and 'Prince of Darkness II' Dickey-burton fits the bill perfectly!

doing under their sand? What did Bush send in his forces to defend? Not the nukes, oh no.... the OIL MINISTRY.

That bulge is hardlined to OPEC. If Dubbie-boy makes one false move:

The soundbyte, "uh... let me finish..." at the website (

A few seconds into soundbyte 5, you can see Bush, apparently telling his handler to let him finish! This guy thought he was on a roll!!

Republicans concerned with "frequency scrambling" and "no cameras behind the podim". Democrats concerned with a safer America.

You decide.

This is silly. It isn't a radio receiver; it's simply his tail, tucked up underneat his shirt. Glad I could clear this up for all!

WOW. I'd forgotten about the "Let me finish" line. I just chalked it up to bush cracking under the pressure. But it makes perfect sense.

Maybe George should pick a new hobby. Like reading?
