Was the President wired during the debates?

Read this article now! The label "puppet leader" may be all too appropriate for George W. Bush!

Has the administration responded to these rumors at all? I wish I could read the whole article, but, alas, I'm too lazy to sign up with Salon.

I "watched" the 30-second ad and got a free day pass. It was worth it, I think, especially since I didn't actually watch it.

I'm fascinated by the fact that the people who wrote the article contacted the Kerry campaign for comments, and the Kerry campaign declined to offer any. They're walking an interesting line between being classy and missing opportunities (or between pressing the advantage and looking sleazy, depending from which side you're looking at it).

As someone who takes evil delight in Bush's general incoherence, I find that the prompter rumors provide a nice fallback on the rare occasions when he doesn't make an ass of himself. Since he was clearly prompted, any coherence he achieves doesn't count and he's still an ass. I like it.
