Write Michael Walgrenbach:
"It just occurred to me why Ron Paul is so effective at taking down the latest surging stars of Santorum and Newt. Ron tells the truth with rueful tones and a subtly judicious almost imperceptible shaking of his head that affectionately indicts the candidate. Try as they might, the candidates laugh nervously over the gentle public and personal exposure of their hypocrisies. But the indictment sticks indelibly with the audience's conscience. Is Ron Paul a master dramatist too!"
UPDATE from Luis Almeida:
"I respectfully disagree, I don't think Ron is a 'master dramatist'. I think his demeanor is a reflection of his deep knowledge of history and politics.
"He knows that the talking points his opponents are voicing are not their own. He has been fighting the same opponents for 30 years regardless of the politician who's lips are currently flapping. He also respects them enough to know that they are not stupid but disingenuous and misleading those that they purport to serve.
"When he shakes his head and speaks in a rueful tone he is speaking directly to his opponents. He is letting them know that he knows who they are and that he is sorry for the price they will eventually have to pay."
