• GOP Congressperson Attempts to Defund President's Teleprompter

    These are tough times we're living in, and we've all got to make sacrifices. Not matter how difficult or how pointless and petty-minded

    More than 400 amendments were filed Monday night. Among them were a proposal from Rep. Steve Womack, R-Ark., to eliminate funding for the president’s Teleprompter…

    Oh no! He'd be rendered speechless! But but don't worry. I'm sure there must be some money in the budget for an emergency teleprompter to be rented in case he needs to declare war on some Middle Eastern country. Or maybe the GOP can just lend the president one of theirs.

    Womack told Fox News Tuesday afternoon that he pulled his amendment because he wasn't able to get an estimate on how much it would save.

    Oh, bummer. He could have come to me. My brother-in-law's in the teleprompter business. (Growing field. And those people can drink. My brother-in-law has some stories!) Anyway, it's around $2,700. For two.
