With all due respect to this individual and his descendants... As I understand it, simply being a representative in local state government is not necessarily enough notability to justify a Wikipedia article. Are there any other sources which can be used to prove this individual's fame? Please see Wikipedia:Notability (people). --Elonka 16:36, 29 October 2006 (UTC)
- I will add a reference to William Safire's book in which he categorizes Soggy Sweat's speech as one of the best political speeches in history (pg. 876) --Acadac 20:42, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
Would someone please explain how this speech is an example of doublespeak?
Done You're clearly right about this. Even if "doublespeak" had some different meaning in political discourse, there's no evidence for that. Also the statement that the speech is doublespeak that was formerly in the article was an unsourced opinion. Thus I took it out.— alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 17:51, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
