Spouse and I have been excited about 2007-2008. Why? Because the year (and $25 million per candidate) might produce the finest political spectacle ever. So far I haven't been disappointed.
Let's start off with our current president, Mr. George Dubyuh. Quite frankly, I don't listen to a word he says and therefore I don't know if I agree or disagree with him. His speech delivery is pugnacious. I'm unable to sit through (let alone listen to) any of his speeches/press releases. And so I decided a bit ago that I would vote solely for the best speaker. As an aside, why does a speaker deliver a speech instead of a speach? I will never understand our language.
Anyway, if my precious morning TV will be interrupted on a regular basis to hear the new Mr or Ms President speak, they better be able to deliver the precious words their precious speech writer wrote for them - and in a somewhat entertaining fashion.
So far Mitt Romney is winning. It's not because I believe in his political agenda or his integrity (we all know how disappointing his abortion flip-flop was). It's because that dude is an awesome speaker! Admit it, you know he is.
Let's use today's speech on religion (that was given in some Texas Bush-named college library). His delivery was eloquent, downright tear-jerking. He spoke of freedom and faith and religious tolerance.
Had I not already been a Mormon, I would have run right out and grabbed the nearest missionaries. Or at least called the 800 number. Seriously. That good.
