I was just thinking of making fun of Tom Leppert this morning and, as if on cue, he gifts me with a new campaign commercial. This time it’s set in a warehouse of some sort, full of people working because he is a job creator and, even though he didn’t create those jobs, per se, he has created jobs — so many jobs, you guys, you don’t even understand. Anyway, as usual it is stuffed to the brim with Leppert’s usual arsenal of sweeping hand movements. I’ve picked out my favorite four, which you might have noticed I already mentioned in the headline. If you didn’t, I’m not sure why you read this far.
"GRRR. MR. OBAMA, DON'T MAKE ME ANGRY. YOU WOULDN'T LIKE ME WHEN I'M ANGRY. RAWR! Whoa whoa, hey, I'm just kidding. But I am quite perturbed! OBAMA! WASHINGTON! RT if you agree."
"I mean, sometimes you just gotta say, 'What the f---?' Right? Huh? This guy knows what I'm talking about."
"It's a little brown dog, about yay big, answers to Hugsy. No? Nothing? You sure? Well, yes, Hugsy *is* an unusual name, but I assure you, if you saw this dog, oh, man, you'd know why I named him that! Anyway, my information is on the flyer."
"Jeremy, you know very well I specifically -- specifically -- said no one was allowed in your room with the door closed. We have been over this time and again. I really don't know what to do with you anymore. I mean, first the rock and roll music, and now this. Listen, when your mother gets home, the three of us are going to sit down and have a real discussion about this. Now, go finish your homework. I have a speech to finish."
