In Which Gibbsy Proposes a Threesome

I'm sure everyone in America has by now seen the gaffe from yesterday involving the Big Guy's pronunciation of "Orion" in a critical speech about people turning green or something. Last night, Gibbsy and Rahm called an emergency meeting in the Situation Room, and the three of us sat down to work through exactly how to get Big O's mojo back for speechifying.

Gibbsy suggested that we use a third screen for the speeches, one either in the podium or in front of the podium, so The Boss wouldn't have to keep turning his head from side to side to read the screens. I'm a pro, but adding a third screen seems an over-reaction, like the time they made special teleprompter glasses out of a pair of those prank "x-ray glasses" for Big Boy to wear during a debate where electronic-communications aids were forbidden. That said, I'm hip to a threesome at some point in the White House, most Democrats are ... except Hillary.

I suggested that maybe, instead of gimmicks and technology, The Boss should read the speeches before he goes out to give them. We had a good laugh over that suggestion, then turned back to more realistic options.

  3. TOTUS, did you mean podium or lectern?? Lots of people refer to the big wooden thing that you stand at as the podium; it is called a lectern. I learned the difference in a speech class when I got hired after college. Anyway, keep up the good work of keeping us informed; this info is priceless.

  4. This all makes me wonder if at some point, YOU get replaced with a live prompter - like they do in opera houses &/or ballets?

    Basically a guy sitting in a shell at the foot of the stage, whispering lines to the singers and directing them about the stage.

  8. It's a lot different when you actually hear it. Over and over. Whenever Bush gaffed, it was practically front-page news. Will that, too, come to pass with BHO? The Lefties are getting ticked...

    TOTUS, I know you're doing all you can for Our Dear Leader. But maybe he's just a bit overwhelmed at getting in THE driver's seat and suddenly realizing he knows not what he's doing.

    I'll have the "Why is this man smiling?" one.

    Seriously...making picks for NCAA, on an 'official board', and making jokes about mentally disable people during a financial crisis. What an idiot.

  23. Well, TOTUS, you may want to talk with “Dead Fish” and Gibbie in private about the O-man. It is time for some primers for Him, since he obviously cannot read. Suggestion, don’t have Him read His kid book, but start with something simplier “See John Run,” and move up from there.

  25. Dear TOTUS,

    My old Palm Pilot IIIxe (that's old) has got a huge crush on you. It's starting to get really uncomfortable. She is depressed because she does not have web access to meet you. I keep telling her to forget it, that you've got thousands of groupy PDA's throwing themselves at you.

    Can you PLEASE do me a favor and send her a message and gently settle her back down to earth?

    I'd really appreciate it.

    Her name is Sarah.
