Defending The Family 2008 & Beyond
Charmaine will be in New Hampshire tomorrow, Friday the 6th to give a talk to strengthen the conservative, pro-life movement.
See the Family Forum Flyer,
Learn how to recapture Traditional American
FRIDAY, JUNE 6 – 9AM-3PM*
WHAT: A grassroots training seminar designed to educate and equip citizens to promote traditional family values in your community. Learn practical how-tos for effective communication and creating and managing your message to be persuasive in the public debate!
WHERE: Thomas More College
Charmaine will be speaking on the power of words to frame a debate. She noticed that Your Business Blogger(R) has a line drawing of the HMS Victory over his desk; a profile of the body of the ship that Lord Nelson made famous in the sea battle at Trafalgar against the French; against Napoleon. The English won, as usual.
VICTORY. There is no ship in the Royal Navy named “Success.” And this is where President Bush gets the Global War on Terror wrong: Men don’t die in combat for “Success in Iraq.” They will sacrifice and die for “Victory.”
We don’t have “Success in Jesus.” We have Victory.
The wordsmith knows the difference. (And the Christian…)
Charmaine will also speak on Bimbos. If you are anywhere in the Northeast, go visit and sey hey to Charmaine.
Thank you (foot)notes:
“Bimbos” as we are using it, is the intellectual property of Merrie Spaeth. Another brilliant women who knows the power of words. And like Charmaine, she worked for Ronald Reagan, of course.
Spaeth reminds professionals and public speakers to always recite the positive and to never repeat the negative accusation — usually advanced by a commie reporter. Public affairs should only be handled by professionals.
When I say ‘public affairs’ I am not speaking of Bill Clinton’s weaknesses…
Most Americans think the country is on the wrong track. Representatives like Heather Wilson may have been a part of the deterioration of the GOP branding and why citizens are dismayed: Republicans are not behaving like Conservatives. Wilson she wanted women in combat. She advanced abortion. This is not a conservative. Wilson just lost her primary race. Thank goodness.
Watch Charmaine’s debate with Heather Wilson(R) from New Mexico a few years ago on women in combat. Ignore the Army women exposing their breasts.
More at the jump.

From Spaeth Communications,
The 2007 Winning BIMBO’s were:
From then-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales about his role in firing eight U.S. Attorneys:
“I have nothing to hide,” “It certainly was not in any way an attempt to mislead the American people,” “Nothing improper occurred,” and “I never sought to mislead or deceive the Congress or the American people about my role in this matter.”

WINNING 2007 LAWYER BIMBO:
James Ecker, attorney for a funeral home, which stashed the corpses of 19 stillborn infants instead of burying or cremating them.
“He didn’t abuse the corpse. He didn’t stab the corpse. The fetuses were given to him by the hospital to get rid of. As far as their parents were concerned, their children were already gone.”

WINNING 2007 ATHLETE BIMBO’s CO-WINNERS:

“There was no intent to deceive anyone.”

Terry “The Tank” Johnson on being signed by the Cowboys after being released by Chicago following arrests involving weapons.
“I was never involved in violence. I never harmed anyone. I never was out-of-control. I’m not a gun toting thug.”
The Dallas Morning News, “Getting Tank back on track,” Oct. 2, 2007, November 2007 Bimbo Memo
WINNING 2007 CELEBRITY BIMBO:
Isaiah Washington, former co-star of “Grey’s Anatomy.”
“I did not call T.R. a faggot.”
(He was even caught on tape. As a reminder, today everyone has a cell phone or video camera.)

ACADEMIC FINDINGS and BIMBO validation:
Spaeth Communications noted an experiment by University of Michigan social psychologist Norbert Schwarz, who tested what volunteers remembered from a flyer from the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The flyer tried to correct myths about the flu vaccine, such as “only older people need flu vaccine.” Contrary to what he and the CDC expected, instead of retaining the new, correct information, most of the volunteers recalled only the incorrect myths. In other words, repeating and denying the myths only pounded them into readers’ minds.
In addition, during the past year, Peter Kim, an organizational psychologist at the University of Southern California, published a study in the Journal of Applied Psychology finding that if accusations are met with silence, they are more likely to be regarded as true.
