More on earpiece during debate - photos
Advertisements [?]
I just got this email so if this is already here somewhere, please let me know and Ill edit.

In the middle of an answer bush said, "now let me finish" as if someone was interrupting him- yet nobody did- he was talking to the person in his earpiece. /

The evidence clearly indicates that W used an earpiece during the debate and on other occasions. The pictures above appeared separately on other sites - notably here and - here
but the comparison proves quite telling.

The receiver is a much larger device, and is usually worn in front. However, Bush had to wear a standard television microphone plus a backup mic during the debate, and these are usually fitted by network technicians over the chest. The only way to hide the receiver was to affix it to the back.

Go here and you'll hear the CNN feed from Bush at the D-Day memorial. The microphones accidentally picked up the signal transmitted into Bush's earpiece. You can plainly hear a phantom voice feeding Bush his lines. (Note: On some systems, you may have to right-click the link and save the file.)

This video was not doctored; many viewers heard the voice during the live broadcast. See, for example, this testimony

1. This piece outlines a truly high-tech approach. The only problem: How to bring such a device covertly into the debate hall.

2. Right-wing bloggers have ignored this issue, concentrating on Kerry's use of (gasp! shudder!) a pen during the debate. Conservatives would have us believe that Kerry "cheated" because he jotted down a couple of notes while Bush spoke. Unfortunately, the same video which proves Kerry's use of a "concealed weapon" also
shows Bush unfolding a crib sheet and placing it on the podium.
