Memorize Your Speech

I didn’t stay up late enough last night to watch John McCain’s speech at the Republican National Convention.  But I did see this oration by Representative Mary Fallin. 

It was like watching someone in the stands at a slow-motion tennis match.  Read from the left teleprompter.  Read from the center teleprompter.  Read from the right teleprompter.  Read from the center teleprompter.  Et cetera.

I can understand wanting to nail the most important speech you have ever made.  Especially in this year where the bar has been set so high for speech-making.  But for crying out loud, doesn’t that make it all the more worth the effort to memorize your 6-minute talk?
