Did Bush have earpiece prompter during debate?

From NYC IndyMedia

A few days ago, an Indymedia contributor made the provocative claim that George W Bush was being secretly “coached” in his debate answers through a hidden earpiece. Conspiracy theory or not, the argument has raged across the board for several days. Read on and see what you think.

(from the Open Newswire): “In the middle of an answer last night bush said, “now let me finish” as if someone was interrupting him- yet nobody did- he was talking to the person in his earpiece.

Is Bush Wired believes Bush often wears these training wheels when he speaks.

This site is a clearinghouse for discussion of whether President Bush uses an earpiece through which he’s fed lines and cues by offstage advisers. His speech rhythms suggest this, as do some of his word choices and interjections, and his constantly shifting eye movements while speaking. And there’s another form of evidence: Television viewers have sometimes heard another voice speaking Bush’s words before he says them.

So, who is whispering in his ear? Inquiring minds want to know!

Hey! Hackers – start your engines!

Maybe some bright energetic hackers could jack into the Bush earpeice system, commandeer it, then whisper their own instructions into the ear of our by now obviously dim-witted puppet President. Just a thought!

One nation off its meds

This week’s e-mails have informed me that George W. Bush must have been equipped with an earpiece or a receiver in his molar during last week’s presidential debate because he kept saying “Let me finish” when no one was interrupting him. (Get wise, people; if Bush had had Karl Rove feeding him lines, do you think he would have lost?)

She does have a point…

The around-the-bend blogs hollered that John Kerry had illicitly used his own pen at the debates — or was that a cheat sheet in his hand? — and that Kerry won only because someone slipped him the questions beforehand. (Yep, those surprise Iraq questions in a debate on foreign policy sure looked like sucker punches to Bush.)

When did the loonies get off their barstools or off their meds and take over? Aren’t Area 51 and Bigfoot enough for them anymore? When did the wackos stop getting transmissions from Saturn in their bridgework and start getting C-SPAN?

Hmmm, however what is history but multiple overlapping conspiracies and intrigues? And to say that all conspiracies are unfounded is, well – the Bushies successfully went to war in Iraq based on lies and deceptions they foisted on the public. Sounds like a conspiracy to me.
