Pardon Me, Mr. President, but What Is a Corpseman?

MEMORANDUM

TO: The White House
FROM: The Den Mother
RE: Pronunciation

In light of the President’s speech at the recent National Prayer Breakfast, I suggest that someone might want to consider typing Mr. Obama’s teleprompter scripts phonetically from now on. Thank you.

(For those who can’t see the YouTube video embedded above, go here to see another version.)

For the record, I once made the same mistake. When I was about 11. Is there really anyone who still believes this guy is brilliant?

On a related note, watch Obama’s head movements. He constantly looks from one side to the other; never straight ahead. This is because the teleprompter screens are off to the sides. Apparently he can’t take his eyes off them for even a few seconds. If he were speaking from a written script in front of him, he’d be one of those people who never looked up from the script.
