  • Words don't lie, part II: Perception Analyzer reveals no Jack Kennedys at vice presidential debate

Comments Oct 4, 2008 12:52 pm

I enjoyed your post and the good humor toward our Perception Analyzer technology.  It has indeed been used for 25 years during every presidential campaign as well as political campaigns around the world and is in use at more than 30 colleges and universities worldwide.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you'd like to discuss or learn more about it.

Joe:  It's literally a shame--let me say that again--it is a real and total shame--seriously--that we must use a light dimmer to express our political opinoins.  It is a solid fact--a dark truth--that American political discourse is completely lacking of any substance.  Literally.  Check the record.

Sarah:  Say it aint so, Joe.  There ya go again, talking about stuff instead of turn'n the dial.  You sure aren't one of the Joe six-packs out there, do'n their best, use'n their fingers to twist that knob.  I'd like to give a shout out to all those 3rd graders out there, make'n their voices heard by spinning that circle!
