Getting Over Yourself

Who wouldn’t be outraged?

At least that’s what I thought when I heard a radio political ad proclaiming that the scoundrel (my words) had spent $2300 redecorating his office! I could hear the outrage the speaker’s voice but I wasn’t actually listening and thought he must have said $23,000. The next time it came on I paid a little more attention and, indeed, this low-life had spent $2300 redecorating his office!

It’s true, that how you say something affects the listener’s perception of the importance of your words. But I’d think the people in that voting district might just find this so ludicrous that it has the opposite of the intended effect.

Have passion about your message, yes. But first, have a credible message.
