POLITICS AS USUAL: BASS FISHING AND THE U.S. ELECTION

Did anyone catch The Daily Show last night? There was a segment about President Bush appearing on a U.S. Fishing show.

While funny, am I the only one that thinks that was a brilliant tactic?

You speak directly to your base, you contrast yourself against your opponent (in this case, a wealthy career politician) while playing to your strengths as a regular guy who understands regular people.

I think Bush got voters.... hook, line and sinker (I had a lot of them, that''s the one I went with).
