Yup, Nailed It!

Andrew Sprung, a fellow blogspot blogger, just eviscerates Rick Perry's latest interview with Time magazine.  His delicious conclusion:
Perry's rules of rhetorical engagement boil down to 1) constantly impugn your opponents' motives by insinuation; 2) shamelessly misrepresent their policies; 3) tag existing federal programs and functions with inflammatory and manifestly inaccurate labels; 4) eschew presenting any specific reform programs for "broken" programs; and 5) when you do offer policy prescriptions, ignore any likely obstacles to their success.
A democracy that allows such a candidate to get anywhere near consideration for its highest office is in danger of not remaining a democracy for long.
As if we'd never thought that about GW Bush.
