We need more warm and fuzzy anecdotes- stat!!
Throw a couple barrels full of “polecats” into the convention, and you’ve got your “warm and fuzzy”.
…ha ha…no depth…
Even Nixon has more personality…. probably more honest as well.
Willard, tell us the one about the dog on the car.-Or dressing up as a highway patrolman.-Or how corporations are people.-Or how you became a ChickenHawk by supporting the war in Viet Nam, while dodging the draft.-Or how you will never interfere with a woman’s right to choose.-Or how your primary residence was in California while you voted in Massachusetts, a felony.-The crowd will just laugh and laugh.
Ketira: they don’t run away from their “advisors” and campaign managers.
I watched some of the Republican convention Wednesday night. One big infomercial. Main theme: “Obama has done a rotten job! “ Over and over and over. Then there were glittering, empty promises of what will be done by Romney: Energy Independence! Lower taxes! Jobs for Everybody (Not Too Lazy to Work)! No Rich Person Left Behind! America Will Once Again Rule the World!.This is The Party for Business? I make a point to never buy from salespeople who merely badmouth their competitors. Mitt, show me your specifications, show me the spreadsheets for the projected business plan. Screw any “secret plans.” .I couldn’t watch more than five minutes at a time. I was appalled and kept going back to confirm it was really such an idiotic spectacle. Have presidential nominating conventions come to this? It was like “Joel Osteen as Fox Political Commentator” or “Rush Limbaugh in the Style of Henny Youngman.” Grin and Sneer. Smile as you stick in the serrated knife. Lick off the blood when you pull it out..I felt very disrespected.
