Apparently Republicans are still, still, making idiotic references to President Obama's use of teleprompters. I've called out their hypocrisy on that repeatedly, and I've also written a few times about why teleprompters are a good thing. Please link over to read why they’re not as terrible as the GOP keeps saying they are.

In fact, Rick Santorum actually said, “It should be illegal to read off a teleprompter.”

And back at CPAC 2010 "Genius" 14-year-old speaker made a lame teleprompter joke. By the way, he's older, wiser, and no longer a conservative.

Did I mention that Marco Rubio mocked Obama’s teleprompter…while in front of a teleprompter?

Oh, and there's this:

And now this:

"Now step away from the teleprompter and do your job!" said Former Half-Gov Hypo McCritical as she read those words from a teleprompter.

I taught comedy for years, and there are a few rules that anyone attempting humor in front of an audience and who has the least bit of comedic talent knows. Palin broke at least three of them: 1) Be, you know, funny 2) Be fresh, don't rely on the same old stale material, and 3) Know when to stop.
