Was Bush wired in the debate?

No, I'm not talking about cocaine.

Some excerpts from the Salon article:

The president is not known to wear a back brace, and it's safe to say he wasn't packing. So was the bulge under his well-tailored jacket a hidden receiver, picking up transmissions from someone offstage feeding the president answers through a hidden earpiece? Did the device explain why the normally ramrod-straight president seemed hunched over during much of the debate?

Bloggers are burning up their keyboards with speculation. Check out the president's peculiar behavior during the debate, they say. On several occasions, the president simply stopped speaking for an uncomfortably long time and stared ahead with an odd expression on his face. Was he listening to someone helping him with his response to a question? Even weirder was the president's strange outburst. In a peeved rejoinder to Kerry, he said, "As the politics change, his positions change. And that's not how a commander in chief acts. I, I, uh -- Let me finish -- The intelligence I looked at was the same intelligence my opponent looked at." It must be said that Bush pointed toward Lehrer as he declared "Let me finish." The green warning light was lit, signaling he had 30 seconds to, well, finish.

Suggestions that Bush may have using this technique stem from a D-day event in France, when a CNN broadcast appeared to pick up -- and broadcast to surprised viewers -- the sound of another voice seemingly reading Bush his lines, after which Bush repeated them. Danny Schechter, who operates the news site MediaChannel.org, and who has been doing some investigating into the wired-Bush rumors himself, said the Bush campaign has been worried of late about others picking up their radio frequencies -- notably during the Republican Convention on the day of Bush's appearance. "They had a frequency specialist stop me and ask about the frequency of my camera," Schechter said. "The Democrats weren't doing that at their convention."

This is so completely typical. The liberals are always searching for a conspiracy. Everything from how bush stole the election in 2000 to Bush carries a wireless receiver so he can be fed answers. Face reality – liberals just don’t have the facts. That is why they must resort to parlor games such as rock stars giving free concerts or Michael Moore giving out free gifts for a vote. I have to laugh the way you target young voters because they are so much easier to minipulate. "Show me a 20 year old who is not a liberal and I'll show you a man with no heart. Show me a 50 year old who is a liberal and I'll show you a man with no brain" The democrats of today rarely do anything based on fact. What a complete joke how John Kerry uses the Washington Post and other associated press liberal rags as sources for his skewed information. The liberals of today are sheep with no minds of their own. They would believe in a conspiracy involving Bush and "flying saucers" if you showed them the doctored photos. In fact, I am going to start a new anti-bush rumor just to show how stupid liberals are. If you are a liberal you had better be careful what you believe from this point on because I am about to prove how stupid all of you actually are. You all say Bush is stupid because the associated press goes the extra mile to make him look that way. Have you ever noticed how every republican president or candidate has always been made to look stupid by the press, but every democratic president or candidate has been made to look so smart? Did it ever occur to you people that Kerry could not get into Yale or Harvard? The problem is that liberals just cannot think for themselves. They have to let the LA Times tell them how to think or some rock star who has no education. The democrats have nothing to survive on except ridicules rumors generated by themselves. You just can’t win based on facts. I just can’t understand why you would want a 60s commie hippie running this country. Do you really want the president of our country traveling to France and kissing their butt on your behalf? If you are a liberal I guess you probably do because you probably hate the USA.
