Sat in on Jim Hightower's presentation yesterday. Jim has been the Agricultural Commissioner for Texas twice, and does a bunch of books and radio work.
My first impressions? Jesse Jackson has nothing on this guy when it comes to catch, angry rhyming. In the first three minutes we've had the phrases "strategize, organize, and mobilize", "Walmatters and Exxoners", "Warmongers and Fearmongers", "autocratic, theocratic, and plutocratic", and "Bushites and Bullshitters". Okay, well that last one is more of an alliteration, but you get the idea.
Jim seems pretty angry. Angry at Bush, angry at corporate America, angry at the oil companies, and angry at anybody who has money. He definitely feels that the Bush administration is immoral.
Interesting fact he points out: "Did you know that you can take the word "Presbyterians" and rearrange the letters, and it will spell "Britney Spears"?"
Not much environmental content in this particular speech. Jim is here to incite liberal rebellion and evangelism.
