Yesterday, the nation was rocked by news of the tragic passing of Hubert J. "Hub" Schlafly Jr, the man who invented the teleprompter and, therefore, also invented Barack Hussein Obama.
Schlafly, age 91, was a TV engineer who originally developed the teleprompter in the 1950's to help soap opera actors remember their lines about rumors, scandals, affairs, sickness, death, financial shenanigans and melodrama expressed in dumbed-down, populist, purple prose. Surprisingly, neither the device nor the scripts required modification for political use.
To show appropriate respect for the passing of Mr. Shlafly, Hope n' Change would like to suggest that the alleged president lower his head and observe a dignified period of silence.
Two years should do nicely.
