Democracy in Action

25th June 2004

After work, we head out for dinner. Conversation turns to the convention.

Pal 1: Who do you want for VP?

Pal 2: My money’s on Edwards.

Pal 3: Yeah. But you know what bugs me about Edwards? He bends at the wrist when he’s making a fist.

P1: What?

P3: You know, when he makes a fist to make a point? His wrist bends back. It looks weird. Like he’s trying to make this strong point, and his wrists are all bent. Little thing, I know.

P1: But this is how people think.

P2: I would want him to lead our country, but…

P1: …he does that freaky thing with his wrists.
