He was madelaughing stock in Europe as well, because our press just quotes the MSM uncritically (what's the point of sending a correspondent to the US for that) and because it looking down on a pro westler turned successful politician is just so much up the alley of European intellectual snobbery about the US. When I went to the US and I found out more about him, heard him speak (on radio shows), etc, I got a completely different picture of him.

Blue collar, straight from the hip. No cronies, no silver tongue, no cashing checks behind closed doors, no baiting the public. I wanted him to run for president in '00 and '04 like you can't imagine.
