From Ask Figaro:
This guy says almost the exact same thing that’s in your book, and I think it’s called decorum.
The blog you refer to quotes a friend asking why the Democrats keep nominating Frasier Crane. Why doesn’t the party of “the people” run people who talk like, well, people?
You’re right in thinking this is all about decorum—not the teacup-and-lace variety, but the rhetorical kind. It’s from the Latin word for “fitness.” Decorum is all about fitting in. Through your words, gestures, and appearance, you make the audience believe you’re one of them.
George W. Bush, a millionaire Yale graduate who vacations at the family compound in Maine, sounds much more like a good ol’ American than midwesterners like Hillary and Barack. The Dems’ main problem: they’re not decorous enough.
