4 more years!Posted: August 13, 2012
Ever since studying American political science while in university – taught by the incomparable Professor Hodge – I have remained fascinated with U.S. politics. Eighty-five more sleeps, but, hey, who’s counting?
The spin on this article interested me – that the unveiling of Paul Ryan as the VP nominee was a PR victory – but not as much as the tactics the Romney team used. The Republican presidential nominee is a devout Mormon, and a teetotaler, but yet his press aides “kept the media distracted” with booze, among other things. Stupid to brag about duping the media, in the media, however. They will not be doing the Romney/Ryan team any favours – which they will undoubtedly need – over the next few months.j
It’s an interesting read, particularly the visual you get imagining Paul Ryan skulking through the forest on his way to the rendezvous point.
