Teleprompter, teleprompter in the middle of the rodeo ring; who's the most scripted candidate of them all?

CNN reports:

It appears Barack Obama's teleprompter is hitting the campaign trail.

The Democratic presidential nominee has never tried to hide the fact he delivers speeches off the device, though normally he doesn't use one at standard campaign rallies and town hall events.

But the Illinois senator used a teleprompter at both his Colorado events Monday — making for a particularly peculiar scene in Pueblo, where the prompter was set up in the middle of what is normally a rodeo ring.

Mark Steyn writes:

Wasn't "Took My Prompter To The Rodeo" an old Bob Wills number? "Message: I'm on message," as the first President Bush would say. With a bit of luck, they'll let him have it for the debates ...and the summit with Ahmadinejad.

Just imagine the MSM outcry if it were John McCain who couldn't, uh, uh, uh, talk to us without a techno-crutch.
