Earlier this morning, Basil at IMAO posted an article about some cows that managed to burn down their barn somewhere in Germany. Apparently flatulent cows release enough methane to make something like that happen. His take on it was interesting, go check it out, but something else occured to me just now.
Obama has proven many times that he can't speak articulately without a teleprompter. A teleprompter allows him to sound like an orator, but the words are those of other people. I don't see a real distinction between reading something someone else wrote off a teleprompter, and lip-syncing. Besides, nobody puts any faith in it, including his political allies. By now, it's understood by just about everyone that anything he says, teleprompter or not, is simply for political effect.
