"There is nothing voters hate more than having things explained to them as though they were idiots."
For Mr Westen, stories always trump statistics, which means the politician with the best stories is going to win: "One of the fallacies that politicians often have on the Left is that things are obvious, when they are not obvious.
For example this morning my mom was like we need to get to the bank by noon before it closes and I said no I just checked online and it doesn't close until 1 pm.
Then my older sister butts in and says her boyfriend also says they close at 12.
Okay so we show up to bank and right on the door it says it closes at 1 pm as I already knew.
So I tell my mom after I leave the bank and she just says oh well at least we'll know for next time -- DOH!!!
