Oh Lord, Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood...

Oh Lord, Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood...

The whole purpose of hopping into the Presidential Election (other than scoring a huge, awesome job,) seems to be introducing yourself, and making a whale of an impression on 260 million of your neighbors. Why then, does it seem like even some of the most successful candidates struggle to make their true selves shine?


The Associated Press asked the candidates (and their staffers) what mistaken reps they fight against most often. Hillary's staff's answer was great, "Too many to choose from; she is the most famous person nobody really knows." This answer strikes me as almost astonishingly honest, and is much more telling than using the question as an opportunity to pound again on the fact that Hillary's a warm person—really.

The best, best answer came from ol' Fred Thompson, "Really not much of a break dancer." Which doesn't answer the question in the least, but paints quite the mental picture. Ladies and Gentleman, The King B-Boy himself, Popping, Locking and Crumping his way from Tennessee, Fred Thompson! Awesome.

Maybe this is where Fred picked up his tricks...
