TOTUS will Boldly Go Where No Teleprompter Has Gone Before

There’s a bumper sticker on Air Force One – Have Teleprompter, Will Travel.

Barry plans to get out of Dodge right after the midterm election and one of the stops on his whirlwind junket will be Parliament House in Bombay. There he’ll address a joint session of India’s Parliament, accompanied of course by his trusty Teleprompter.

It’ll be Barry’s first visit to India where he’ll be the honored guest of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Speaking of “firsts”, never before has a Teleprompter been deployed in the historic Central Hall.

Naturally, people are wondering why The Great Orator can’t rely on notes or speak off the cuff. What they fail to realize is that the Teleprompter is a distraction.

The twin textbook-sized panes of glass resting atop thin metal poles are actually a clever disguise for Tareq and Michaele Salahi who simply can’t wait to dine with Prime Minister and Mrs. Singh again.

The Salahis will then accompany First Lady Michelle Obama on an excursion to the set of India’s hottest new reality TV series, The Real Housewives of Slumdog Millionaire.

As for Barry’s speech, it’ll undoubtedly be a cornucopia of the usual platitudes.

Oh, who am I kidding, he’s bound to apologize to India for something George Bush did. What he won’t do is mention that $2 billion dollar check Hillary just FedEx-ed to Pock-ee-stahn. Wouldn’t be prudent.

By far the snarkiest reaction to the traveling Teleprompter I’ve seen is this comment in response to a post by Doug Powers:

I’ve got five dollars that says he’ll mention that we have a Bureau of Indian Affairs to help foster the relationship between our two countries.

LOL. Let’s just hope he doesn’t ask to stop at one of their reservations so he can buy some discounted cigarettes.
