Speech Predictions

I predict he will speak in short, declarative sentences, in a style designed to hide the dank and murky swamp behind his rhetoric. Prevarication hiding in plain site. Because it is engrained in us Americans to believe that the more plainly a man speaks, the less likely it is that he's lying. Any man who speaks in setences with commas in them must be hawking some gall-dang snakeoil.

His remarks will be full of nationalist fervor but lacking in moral bedrock or lucid motives. I predict the vast majority of people will believe him. So we’ll see that, as usual, most of the fools are on the same side. That's the quick definition of a majority, right?
