Free Advice For Political Consultants

As I sit with my morning tea watching Bob Dole on The Today Show, I'm again struck by his charm and disarmingly self-deprecating, yet razor sharp wit.

I still disagree with his policy, of course, but had his handlers let him be himself instead of trying to make him the un-fun, humorless big brother during his presidential bid, perhaps things would've gone differently.

Lesson: if your candidate is funny, let him be funny. Bob Dole is a natural - and Phoblographer* always rewards the funny.
