Another Possible Candidate

This seems to be some sort of Weekly Jackass preview night. For a couple of years now (at least it seems that long), George Lakoff has been going around the country, giving speeches and writing books with the premise that the Democrats don't need to change their ideas that are continually rejected by the voting public, but merely the presentation. It's the ultimate in style over substance, and it would be sickening if it weren't so hilariously wrongheaded.

The always excellent Viking Pundit has this one pretty well covered, so I'll refer you to his excellent post, with only one addition: here's the coverage of Lakoff's visit to Austin recently by local progressive rag The Austin Chronicle. For an awesome party game, try to decide which is funnier: Lakoff's picture, the purple prose of the article, or Lakoff's message. It's a tough choice, believe me...
