I like listening to convention speeches. I like listening to analysis of speeches from analysts I respect. Then why can’t I enjoy both on television, PBS?
Why doesn’t the “sound-proof booth” of old game shows turn up at the conventions to keep the sound of the speeches away from the voices of the analysts, and vice versa?
If you let your speechwriters plagiarize, wouldn’t you try to pick out something that wasn’t a platitude or a song lyric?
Hasn’t anybody in political life heard about “Under-promise, then over-deliver”? Or must they all say everything will be perfect, then run for the microphones (or away from them) when it’s not?
Most of the U.S. is in a heat wave. Why is it an excuse in Philadelphia?
