Alvin Greene, the surprise Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate in South Carolina, has a way with words. It’s the way, though, of Sarah Palin and George W. Bush—a tortured relationship with the English language that prevents him from making his points, and that says to voters he may not be up to the job.They just can't see the point. It's actually on their head. Like Bush and Palin, Greene is a winner, regardless of his rhetorical skills. He won. Meanwhile the guy with the gift of gab is polling under 50 percent as he stammers and yammers his way through gaffe after gaffe exacerbated by less than gifted leadership qualities. In other words, talk doesn't always equal action.
Perhaps this can be a teachable moment for this Newsweek reporter. Ya think?
