Rush Limbaugh and Teleprompter Rights

By Rick Pearcey • March 19, 2009, 03:33 PM

A guy can't even get a cup of coffee anymore.

There I was, innocently frequenting the Bistro le Pearcey, Ahmadinejading a cup of cold kava java, and what does one hear but the heartless Rush Limbaugh on the radio and at it again.

"I hope Obama's teleprompter fails!," he intoned. 

That's right. He said it. "I hope Obama's teleprompter" . . . and then the "f word."

I kid you not.

It's actually worse than you think. This bald assertion is -- apparently  -- a reiteration of equally brazen insensitive and unfair remarks made just yesterday: On the air --  Public air waves -- In Obama's America -- During the Era of Change.

I'm not claiming that I personally heard these remarks of yesterday. If I had, I would have told you. In any case, I do not live in the past. Besides, my fellow Americans, Mr. Limbaugh himself admits to uttering them. 

Do you understand what is being said here? "I hope Obama's teleprompter fails!" (Sorry for the adult language. Hope no kids are reading.)

Does Mr. Limbaugh not realize that teleprompters are people too? Their job is hard enough and challenging enough as it is. Have you not seen their schedule?

Let us be clear: Teleprompters have rights, too. And let there be no doubt: They do not need these kinds of distractions.  

As the San Franciso branch of the Teleprompter Rights Action League has made clear: The fundamental rights of presidential teleprompters are self-evidently existant in the penumbra of the perception of human beings vis-a-vis the living Constitution of the United States of America. George Washington himself could not have stated it, or intended to state it, more plainly.

And if you think not Mr. Limbaugh -- or Sean or Mark or Laura or Glenn -- well, how dare you "otherise" perfectly respectable, loving, hardworking, and patriotic teleprompters who are just as valued and just as much a part of the family as any other vital component of our march into the future. Yes they can!

And shame on those who impose their values on the facts of others' heartfelt readings of the penumbras of perceptions of the living Constitution of the United States of America. Thomas Jefferson must be rolling over in his grave.

Now the coffee's cold again. Back to the bistro. Dare I turn on the radio? Sean might say something.
