NYT lays an egg


During Obama’s first term in office, he used a Teleprompter for 699 speeches.  His dependence on the device was so complete that it spawned at least three satire websites – Ask Obama’s Teleprompter, TOTUSblog (Teleprompter Of The United States), and Barack’s Teleprompter (“Because There Is No POTUS Without TOTUS”).

There were also numerous toons, t-shirts and bumper stickers with snarky sayings on them, like “Why doesn’t Obama pray?  Because you can’t read a Teleprompter with your eyes closed.”
