Did Kerry Flip-Flop on Debate Rules?

Bill over at INDC Journal has caught kerry in a new flip-flop, this time Kerry agrees to the debate rules before he decides to break them. Bill writes(and has the video) an exclusive observation:

John Kerry brought prohibited material into last Thursday's Presidential Debate. From section 5, pages 4-5 of the binding "Memorandum of Understanding" (pdf file) that was negotiated and agreed upon by both political campaigns:

(c) No props, notes, charts, diagrams, or other writings or other tangible things may be brought into the debate by either candidate.
(d) Notwithstanding subparagraph 5(c), the candidates may take notes during the debate on the size, color and type of paper each side prefers. Each candidate must submit to the staff of the Commission prior to the debate all such paper and any pens or pencils with which a candidate may wish to take notes during the debate, and the staff or commission will place such paper, pens and pencils on the podium, table or other structure to be used by the candidate in that debate.

Read the story and all of the updates, it appears that John Kerry pulled paper of some kind from his jacket as he approached the podium. Zombietime has the frame by frame breakout of the alleged infraction of the rules.

View all of the posts above and see if Kerry flip-flopped on the agreed to rules of the debate.
