Remember speech class? I do. You had to give a 20 minute speech, from memory, with only a small 3 x 5 card to remind you of your basic outline. You were not allowed to write the entire speech up on the chalkboard at the back of the class.
Did you ever know someone who was really popular. They just had a way with people, and always drew a huge gathering around them. Others liked to listen to them and could easily relate to them. When they spoke, they made a lot of sense, and people like what they said.
It seems that Sarah Palin gave a speech last week. She gave a pretty long speech, mostly from memory. She listed her basic outline on her hand, as a sort of memory jogger. Kind of like in speech class. Her detractors are going nuts.
She is dumb. She can't even remember to talk about some basic points. She has to write on her hand? How regular American is that? Does she drive a truck?
Being an elite must be very difficult. They just do not understand how all of us "normal" Americans exist. We drive trucks and we write on our hands. We do not like to be spoken down to. We expect our Congress to lead by example. We expect our money to be spent wisely. We expect our leaders to be a little off the cuff when speaking, not to read a teleprompter. We do not think Hollywood actors are smarter than a rock. We do not care what Al Gore says. We call a terrorist the correct name and do not want them tried like a common criminal.
The lefties just do not get it. Hopefully they keep on telling us just how stupid we and our Tea Parties are.
I own a truck.
