Is Bush wired?

This is a good example of the types of buzz that starts on (and may be limited to) the Internet. There's a brewing discussion over whether or not Bush was wired with a receiver having dialogue fed to him during the presidential debates. Many more people will be watching this Friday for tell-tale signs that his words may not be his own. Do you think this is a legitimate issue that people need to be made aware of? Should a president in a public debate have hidden assistants feeding him information in real time?

Update: The BBS also has taken an interest in this issue.

The key word there is "hidden." If either candidate wants to receive coaching during the debate, then he should be free to receive it--as long as people know it's happening. I suspect that the rules of the debates would quickly be rewritten to forbid it. The point of a debate is to see how a candidate thinks and speaks on his feet...not how well he can parrot back lines fed into a hidden earpiece. (Which, note, Bush seemed to have a bit of trouble with, if he had such an earpiece.)

You gotta love the Brits' propensity for sexual innuendo with headlines like, "Bush's bulge stirs media rumours."
