Holy cow Tom is amazing in this interview with Dennis Miller. If some of you up-and-coming libertarians wonder, “Why is Tom such a big deal, and I’m stuck arguing with people on Bob’s blog?”, here’s your answer.
I am not even going to spell out all the subtle nuances in how he managed to intrigue Miller without coming off as a “Paultard.”
Beyond the expert sense of persuasiveness, Tom also exhibits courage. I have to confess, I think I would have been afraid of having Dennis Miller not think I was a cool kid at the end of the interview. But Tom was willing to risk it…and hence Dennis Miller thought he was a cool kid.
Hey Tom, “What’s it like?”
(I’m trying to be funny of course in this post, but really, I am going to listen to this interview again tomorrow and study it. Tom might not even have realized why it “worked,” but I noticed several things that he did to lead to the climax.)
