Milli Vanilli Bush Lipsynchs his ENTIRE press conference

George W. Bush made history today.
He gave the first Presidential press conference in which every single word he spoke was fed to him through his earpiece.
How do I know?
Forget the famous debate bulge photos - we'll never see the likes of those again. First, the White House will never again permit a camera behind his back which might take tell-tale photos. Second, the gadget wizards at the CIA have come up with a far less conspicuous gadget. Third, they found a new tailor who can hide the gadget better.
But the evidence is nevertheless completely obvious. All you have to do is watch his face when he's speaking - especially his eyes.
Let me repeat my observations after Bush's NATO press conference on February 22:
There are several speaking tics that expose Bush when he is using his earpiece. First, he pauses between sentences for an extra beat, which buys him time to hear the answer he is being fed. Second, when a particular answer is different from his own train of thought, his gaze drops down as he concentrates extra hard on the voice within his ear. Third, he sometimes mumbles and speaks gibberish when his brain and tongue get out of synch. Finally his answers ramble on, going from one stray thought to another, as he "filibusters" to consume all available time.
OK, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it. But how can we prove that Bush was lipsynching?
First, we need a videoblogger (like the fabulous CrooksandLiars.com) to assemble all the tell-tale clips in one place.
Second, we need professionals from several disciplines - public speaking coaches, psychologists, linguists, etc. - to analyze the evidence together.
Finally, we need one member of the White House Press Corps to ask Scott McClellan two simple questions:
- Has Bush ever been fed answers through an earpiece?
- Was he fed answers during his press conference on March 16?
C'mon press-titutes, you can do it! It's time to prove that the cartoon at the top of this blog is a lie - that you're not all a bunch of Jeff Gannons.
As Dan Rather famously advised: "Courage."
