Fred - Campaign Speech

Blogger for Newsweek, Andrew Romano, wrote an entry about a "feisty Fred." A telling line from the story demonstrates the media's, thus the American people's, distaste for principle-centered discussion.

And the opening movement of his stump speech--a drawn-out disquisition on the Founding Fathers--belongs in a high-school history classroom, not on the campaign trail.
There it is...a discussion of our first principles should not be in this type of setting...it's boring! We want titillation and entertainment! It's much easier to be charmed than taught!

I heard a bit of Fred addressing his supporters tonight, sounded like he might be coming to an end.

Yes, I'll be interested in who he endorses...though I may still vote for him on February 5th...

Were you having nightmares about the face?

Daniel said...

Never!

Thank you Daniel for your support. Gary, I do believe that your so called "nightmare" would be a dream come true or even a fantasy for Dan.

This is a public blog, lets keep that trash talk behind closed doors where it belongs.
