You might want to take some of ham out of the hands you have all over that diatribe. Seriously. If your goal is to enlighten, then pull back on the rage a little. No one is convinced by hyperbole. That never occurs, regardless of what you might think when tuning into cable channels during political campaigns. Relax on the hatred for a moment, and allow yourself to give a little quarter. Even if it ends up taking some of the snazz out of the piece for you. You aren’t supposed to be selling yourself with this stuff. You’re supposed to be working on the soft, chewy center of the electorate. They don’t trust caricatures, so try to refrain from becoming one with your opinion pieces.

Then again, if all you’re working toward is an air-shift on AM talk radio, then rant away. Every circus has its clowns, when all is said and done. I don’t know. I’m probably not one to talk. I hate as viscously as anyone when I opine.

I guess it just depends on what you’re trying to accomplish with this kind of screed.
