The Psychopathology of Everyday Life

Right-wing blogger John Hinderaker visits the White House:
The conventional wisdom is that Bush is not a very good speaker. But up close, he is a great communicator, in a way that, in my opinion, Ronald Reagan was not. He was by turns instructive, persuasive, and funny. His persona is very much that of the big brother. Above all, he was impassioned. I have never seen a politician speak so evidently from the heart, about big issues--freedom, most of all.


  1. Lovely stuff. Ha! By their own words etc

  2. Eventually, it is hoped, politicians in the Free World will be able to speak entirely from the heart, with no intervention from the brain at all. It should then be a fairly simple matter to eliminate interference from listeners' brains, and ensure that control of the actual cardiospeechification resides with the Appropriate Authorities.
