Be Wary Of Republicans Speaking In Modifiers
Adverbs, adjectives - - you remember your junior high school English lessons, yes?
But in the political world, they can be a "tell" for hiding the 'truth' being highlighted.
So - - sincerely, a modest, modest question? Why do these guys need the qualifiers?
This headlined example from US Sen. Ron Johnson late last week - - Johnson tells immigration advocates: "I sincerely want to solve the problem" - - reminds me of this classic, double-dipper by Scott Walker when describing his Act 10 demands - - "these are modest, modest requests...."
I like this. Johnson isn't the least bit sincere so he projects.
"modest, modest" reminds me of john erlichman's "twisting slowly, slowly in the wind."
