It's really true, boys and girls! Anyone can be President of the US, if you have one of these handy, dandy things:
Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen was just a few paragraphs into an address at a St. Patrick's Day celebration at the White House when he realized something sounded way too familiar. Turns out, he was repeating the speech President Barack Obama had just given...

But Cowen was 20 seconds into his second address when it dawned on him that he was giving word for word the speech that Obama had just read from the same teleprompter.

Even the Prime Minister of Ireland can be POTUS!

We are in such good hands with the all-encompassing state of Obama.

UPDATE: Mark Steyn:
This sounds like beginning of a Twilight Zone episode. Is the Teleprompter really the brains of the operation? And, if so, why hasn't it nominated a new Deputy Treasury Secretary?

UPDATE II: Not only the brains, but the emotions: Barack Obama even needs a teleprompter to get mad! That explains why he couldn't get angy about this...clearly, the teleprompter hadn't been activated yet!

Talk about a completely empty suit.
