Several of us have noted below President Obama’s descent into ever-drearier sludgelike rhetoric, to the point where even the most drooling media Obammysoxers have given up swooning over his silver tongue.
By contrast, Scott Brown seems to deliver very nice lines on a regular basis:
“It’s not Ted Kennedy’s seat, it’s the people’s seat”: Brilliant. Popular democracy vs. the House-of-Lords Democrats.
“Scott Brown believes in evolution, but in the case of Bob Kerrey he’s willing to make an exception”: Lovely. A genial throwaway response to a demented line of attack that makes the attacker look ridiculous.
“The leader of the free world is talking about my truck“: Bullseye. It underlines the David-vs-Goliath nature of the race, and also reminds you that, by having to intervene to prop up his flailing candidate, the president of the United States demeaned himself.
All these lines are beautifully poised, certainly when compared to the Hopeychanger’s leaden oratory. I dunno who Scott Brown’s writer is, but if Obama wanted to do himself a favor he’d hire the guy.
