CPAC Teleprompter Used For Teleprompter Jokes

They have got to be kidding.

No, they’re not.

Did the speakers at CPAC really think no one would take a picture of their teleprompters, especially when they were criticizing others for using teleprompters?

From Technorati:

The Conservative Political Action Conference kicked off this morning with several speakers chipping away at White House policy and why Democrats are bad for your health. Excessive riffing was done on Obama’s teleprompter addiction, but the twist is that the CPAC speakers were making such jokes … while using teleprompters.

Will there come a day when we will get substantive contributions from conservatives to our national dialogue? Or are they just good for the occasional clown show?

Dekalb County Republicans Vice Chairman Andrew Nelms Arrested on DUI Charge

From the Daily Chronicle:

The vice chairman of the DeKalb County Republican Central Committee was arrested early Thursday morning for driving under the influence.

Andrew Nelms, 26, of the 32000 block of Pleasant Hill Road in Genoa, was arrested about 1:30 a.m., according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were assisting a motorist whose vehicle was in a ditch on Somonauk Road south of Fairview Drive, according to the news release. Police arrested him for DUI and took him to the county jail.

Nelms posted $100 bond and his driver’s license, according to Lt. Joyce Klein at the DeKalb County Jail, who said that is the statutory bond for that charge. He was released from custody about 3:30 a.m.

Hello to a few years of lawyer fees, fees to the court, DUI classes, counseling, and more. And hopefully this never happens again.
