Great Article from the editors of the New Yorker
Twice today I have had a similar conversation with two separate people regarding the next president. Both times had the same outcome.
I am not ‘Joe Six Pack’
I am not a ‘Good Ol’ Boy’
I am not ‘Down Home’
I think saying ‘Gee Golly’ makes you sound like a moron
I think saying ‘gosh darnit’ makes you sound like a repressed moron
I do not want to sit down with my president and have a beer
I WANT my president to be highly educated
I WANT my president to speak eloquently
I WANT my president to be respected by the international elite
I WANT my president to be even tempered and thoughtful
We’ve had eight long and horrible years of morons in Washington. We need some one smart and serious in there. A man that will think first, ask the hard questions, and then as needed wield the stick. We do not need another gun slinging hothead and his trusty yet shady sidekick. A man of the people does not need to relate to the people on a personal level, a man of the people has to do what is right for the people as a whole.
I do hope that my choice does turn out to be the right choice.
