There’s not a thought in my head I can’t explain in thirty seconds.
Although this quote could imply Dick Morris’ head is filled with simple thoughts, I don’t think so. Instead I’m impressed and here’s why.
In high school composition class we complained that we couldn’t write our thoughts down. The teacher responded that we probably couldn’t write our thoughts down because we didn’t have any. In other words, we couldn’t write what we didn’t know. The process of writing or speaking exposes the limits of our knowledge.
Dick Morris has made advocacy his life’s calling. Through experience he has learned what he knows (and what he doesn’t) and how to explain it. Having a thirty second “elevator pitch” for each thought is icing on the cake.
