  1. You would think that if he WAS wearing a wire, that the person telling him what to say would not include “duh” and “uh” so much.

  2. Are you kidding? If they didn’t the moderator would have smelled a rat immediately.

    “Hmm, W is speaking coherently, must be some sort of trick.”

  3. Do a Google for “ballistic panel” and you will discover the secret of the bulge in Bush’s jacket.

  4. I find the bulletproof vest theory pretty persuasive. But I can only wonder, who really thinks that the president is going to get shot inside the debate hall?? Does he wear one of these things to sleep in? During cabinet meetings?

  5. I think the illustration means to suggest that Bush was listening to his iPod (as opposed to being fed lines). If so, two questions immediately come to mind. One: Who in the White House is sufficiently connected to pop culture to operated an iPod? And two: Are the apocalypse sermons of Pat Robertson available in MP3 format?

  6. .. naw .. it was a continuous tape loop going, “Breathe out, breathe in. . .”

  7. Gambling is a terrible sin, but if it weren’t I would bet that he was listening to “…let the eagle soar…”

  8. “Who in the White House is sufficiently connected to pop culture to operated an iPod?”

    I’m sure there are plenty of people in the White House who use the internets.

  9. I’m sure there are plenty who are keeping an eye on this board.

    A thousand people in the street

    Singing songs and carrying signs

    Mostly say, hooray for our side

    It’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound

    Everybody look what’s going down

    Paranoia strikes deep

    Into your life it will creep

    It starts when you’re always afraid

    You step out of line, the man come and take you away

  10. If Bush wears an iPod then I have a new project: Steal the device and replace his favorite tunes with my favorite music! 😉

    Imagine trying to debate Kerry and suddenly hearing “Bow down before the one you serve! You’re going to get what you deserve!”

  11. podcasting, maaaaaan.

    seriously, even if he was getting remote-controlled like that robotic cockroach those japanese scientists came up with a few years back…what’s the implication? they don’t write their own speeches or do their own research. they’re coached on all of the issues, do debate run-throughs and other scenarios…

    “well, you can have 95% of the work done by other parties, but that last 5% better be genuine!”

  12. The best wire the pres can afford is found on the shelf of Reynolds magic house and spy shop?

    c’mon if he wanted to wear a wire, there are plenty better ones than one the size of a box of animal cookies.
