Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You base your impression of political parties onf how they look?  You know who looks great? Sarah Palin.

Morons with good skin and great suits are usually the ones who get us into trouble, aren't they?

Call if professional deformation. Sven works in branding. Political parties are electioneering machines. Do the math. Well, don't: between that and your black wardrobe Sven might get a bad first impression.

Anecdotal evidence demands to be embroidered. All anecdotes do. Anyway I'm an entertainer, not a scientist. The only science I'm involved in - and you could hardly call it a science - is that of discovering any individual's or group's general motivations. I deal with people on the basis of my own perceptions of those motivations.

What people say, how they say it and to whom, their dynamic in a group, body language, dress, hair, possessions and so on - all contribute to those perceptions, with some salient features negating and some amplifying other characteristics.

The only thing I have not found indicative of character is RW names. (because they are not chosen by the user). But nicks are.

You can't be me, I'm taken
