Can Republicans Talk?

But Mr. Sowell, I believe it's still unlawful to use a hammer on their heads (about a 16oz ball-peen) to wake them up. I'm tired of shouting at the TV screen and radio speakers from all the lies and the Republicans stumbling from either the inability or timidity to refute them as you say. I still believe PBO is going to be soundly defeated in November. The country cannot be that blind and ignorant twice in a row.
The first time I saw Chris Christie on television, shortly after he became governor of New Jersey, my immediate reaction was, "My Gosh! A Talking Republican!" It was almost like seeing a talking giraffe or a talking salamander.

Technically speaking, Republicans do talk, but talking is definitely not their strong suit. Nor do they seem to have put a lot of thought into what they say or how they say it. The net result is that articulate Democrats can get away with the biggest lies, without any serious rebuttal from most Republicans.

I have not heard any Republican official or candidate even try...
