CAN’T MCCAIN

Posted by PrestoPundit on 02/20/2008

get a better writer?  This stuff is just dreadful.  And it’s even worse on TV the way McCain reads it — halting, monotone, and passionless.  Certainly not as if they were his real thoughts and emotions.  His writers have no sense for McCain’s own voice, his own passions, his own ideas.  McCain may not have many, but he has some.  Someone with talent please help this man.

You try to do a reading of a line like this:

I will fight every moment of every day in this campaign to make sure
Americans are not deceived by an eloquent but empty call for change
that promises no more than a holiday from history and a return to the
false promises and failed policies of a tired philosophy that trusts in
government more than people.

This is almost the definition of bad writing.  Can’t Bill Kristol or the Journal spare an office boy or two for this man?
