So, what’s the point, and what lesson can we learn from these videos?
Conservatives have to loosen up a little, and be willing to have fun in the realm of pop culture and look relatively cool while you’re doing it. If you’re a stodgy ol’ white man without any ability to relate to the voting population, you aren’t going to earn endearment points, and ultimately, you’ll probably lose.
Why is this? Because people want a president, or an elected official, with whom they can have a beer (or a dance). If you are someone with whom they couldn’t even strike up a conversation for fear of it ending in silent boredom, get up to speed.
It’s the different between being stodgy and being someone with whom a voter would actually want to spend an afternoon.
