As a public service, here is a photo of the CPAC stage as Sen. Marco Rubio spoke. Note: Teleprompters.
Rubio was the first of (I assume) many speakers to joke about Barack Obama's use of teleprompters. He didn't use the teleprompter. Some people will. This little bit of stage surrealism is amusing to the media, if nobody else. We've got either one year or five years of it to look forward to.
