Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

What happened to gravitas?

Elections, McCain 2008, Obama 2008

Remember the 2000 election? Governor George W. Bush ran against Vice President Al Gore. The buzz in August was, who was George going to pick as his running mate.

George W. Bush was considered a light weight by the left and the media. (Yes,  I realize that is really one and the same.) No matter that Bush was a governor of a large state--something that is usually considered desirable in a presidential candidate.

When Bush chose Dick Chaney, the media, overnight, all spouted the same mantra: Dick Chaney gave Bush the needed "gravitas."

What in the world is that? It was hardly a household word.
