DISINGENUOUS RHETORIC....Shakespeare's Sister sez:

Americans on the Left and the Right, any who arent blind ideologues, have a natural distaste for disingenuous rhetoric clearly designed to appeal to a crowd they havent previously; its the worst kind of artificial politicking....

I don't know about that. If my reading of history is any guide, I'd say that Americans have a disturbingly healthy appetite for disingenuous rhetoric. It just can't sound like disingenuous rhetoric. As long as the acting job is tolerable, though, it seems to work pretty well.
