  • What does a teleprompter have to do with writing your own speech. It is still the writer's words. Try memorizing a 25 minute speech. That is seven and a half pages speech. Yeah, Akin. You are funny. Pick, pick, pick...

  • Good grief. No teleprompter?

    I can't recite a freakin' poem! I'd uh, hate to have to try and uh, make a lengthy speech without a uh, teleprompter. Umm, yeah.

    You people don't ask for much, do you?
