How To Fake A Townhall Meeting.

If you've been watching CNN, you'll know that CNN has been checking in on the candidates, some time each day. Yesterday it was John McCain in Lima, Ohio, where he gave a speech and then changed it into "townhall meeting." But wait, is it possible to have a townhall meeting and not really have one? You bet it is!

First, McCain reads his speech using his teleprompter. Do NOT make a mistake here by throwing in off-the-cuff comments. Remember "Bomb, bomb, bomb! Bomb, bomb Iran!"

After reading the speech, it is time to "Read the townhall meeting." Here is how that is accomplished. Remember, a townhall meeting is supposed to be off-the-cuff answers to questions, but ... McCain is incapable of doing that, ... so don't let that keep you from your teleprompter.

The first question is a two pronged question that deals with Obama. Why doesn:t the candidate attack his rival more on issues? Read that again. Good question. Is it possible that the reason he doesn't verbally attack Obama is that it is not SCRIPTED? McCain cannot do extemporaneous; he seems to have short-term memory loss.

McCain begins to ramble on about what is important and not important and there are two things important. By this time, he has shuffled over near a teleprompter and finishes reading his stock response.

My hope is that Obama has not committed to the townhall meeting. McCain is begging for them, but the reason why, is that he can depend on his staff and the teleprompters to keep him from "Bomb, bomb, bombing, ..." his answers.
