Our Fake-O-Meter Is Pretty Good December 3, 2007Posted by fitsnews in 2008 Presidential Primaries.
AND WE’RE NOT JUST TALKING ABOUT IMITATION HANDBAGS, PEOPLE
FITSNews – December 3, 2007 – We’ve always prided ourselves on our ability to spot a fake, whether it’s bogus Louis Vitton, Gucci or Fendi bags or 2008 presidential candidates like Mitt Romney or John Edwards (pictured above), both of whom would probably change gender if they thought it would score them a majority of voters in their respective primaries.
Anyway, turns out we’re not alone, because someone who is a political expert (as opposed to our own Sic Willie, who just plays one on the Internet) had this to say about these two imitation windbag campaigns:
The candidates who are the best at politicking keep it hidden from public view. They thus seem non-political. The candidates who are the worst at it either do not know to or simply cannot keep it hidden, and thus seem hyper-political … Romney’s campaign is, I must say, the least authentic seeming of any on the GOP side. Only John Edwards, the other candidate with but one electoral victory under his belt, matches it in this regard.
You can read the rest of the story over on Real Clear Politics, but in the interest of full disclosure it’s doubtful a “Salma Hayek” search of their website would produce anything, whereas here on FITSNews, a similar search would produce these. God Bless Mexico, people. And sweater monkeys.
