Behind the Spin: What Americans Want

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Frank Luntz is a long-time Republican operative: a virtuoso of the focus group, a pollster extraordinaire and a master of message. In his latest book, "What Americans Really Want...Really: The Truth About Our Hopes, Dreams, and Fears," Luntz asks what ordinary Americans want – not from their government, but from life. And the results are a little surprising.

I love Todd Zwilich, but I can't believe that he is talking to Luntz as if he is a neutral analyst, a disinterested party, and not one of the linguistic architects of the irrational craziness that is overtaking our political discourse. He was instrumental in bringing political rhetoric to the depths that we are seeing now.
