They can't do that with his college records. They can't say, on the one hand, he's such a brilliant guy, but on the other hand, you can't see his grades and term papers, just take our word for it, he's brilliant. Anyone with two brain cells left can see it doesn't wash. Especially for someone who can't go off-teleprompter without going into "uh, uh, uh, aaaaaaand, uh, uh, uh" mode.
The other day I watched an 18-minute speech from Anita Moncrief, former ACORN heavy, now Tea Partier. Now, that's what I call a speech. She unloads a ton of information in 18 minutes, no notes, no teleprompter, and nary an "uh".
If you've got a link to that or can point me in the right direction it'd be much appreciated.
