Joyner on RTAmerica

I taped a segment for RTAmerica yesterday afternoon on the matter of Obama’s second anniversary in office.  For some odd reason, they’ve edited it into one long ramble by slicing out the interviewer.

  1. Dave Schuler says:

    A bit of distinguished gray there, James.

  2. James Joyner says:

    More distinguished every day!

  3. Trumwill says:

    It’s interesting, with the beard and your mannerisms, you look almost a little like Stephen Root. Maybe it’s assisted by their cutting out the interviewer questions, making you seem kind of like you’re rambling.

  4. Janis Gore says:

    I’m not crazy about the checked pocket square, but an attractive package overall. I like the facial hair. Does it give you something to fondle while you write?

  5. Janis Gore says:

    Sorry, plaid square.

  6. James Joyner says:

    @Janice: It’s more of a Tattersall. But maybe too much in conjunction with the larger grid on teh shirt.

  7. Janis Gore says:

    I think so. A little too much going on. Don’t forget the striped tie.

  8. I, for one, approve of the facial hair.

  9. Janis Gore says:

    Do you fondle yours while you write? I’m sure I would.

  10. James Joyner says:

    Steven: It’s growing on me.

    Janis: Probably. It’s only about a month old, so still not used to it.

  11. Gerry W. says:

    A pretty good assessment. Here is a long winded article on the Obama administration and his fumbling around looking for jobs. Seems like none of the advisors have come up with any answers. And therefore a change at the White House.
