The Declaration of Independence Was Handwritten Too. What's Your Point?
So maybe it's a little odd that Rick Perry was the only major candidate to submit a hand written Statement of Candidacy to the FEC (everyone else typed them up). But it's hardly enough evidence to merit jumping to any major conclusions.
Over at UMN's Smart Politics blog, Eric Ostermeier asks,
[W]as Perry's decision to hand write his form an intentional man-of-the-people gesture, or is it a symbol of a hastily put together campaign that finds its candidate struggling to be disciplined and communicate effectively in the debates?
I'm going with 'none of the above.'
America's first printing press was set up in 1638 at Harvard. And yet, most of this country's founding paperwork was handwritten. What shall we conclude about that?
