Seeing Red

Malkin has a great piece on a New York Daily News story about the President’s body language during the State of the Union address. She points out that the article “quoted a single source, Karen Bradley, ‘a certified movement analyst at the University of Maryland, College Park,’”

Needless to say, the article contains a smarmy analysis of the President’s body language from the “Certified Movement Analyst”. There's really nothing like a good, certified movement is there?

Most telling is the link to her biography at the Democracy Cell Project. Apparently, “Karen Bradley spent the 2003-4 electoral season choreographing volunteers and developing her political awareness, mostly by listening to fellow travelers.”

Fellow travelers? Waaaaaait a minute. Where have I heard that term before? Lemmee think….

Oh yeah, Freshman Year. ‘History of Communism’ course.

Wikipedia (yeah, I know) defines the term here.

As long as we understand the foundation on which she developed her political awareness.

I've been thinking about having all my movements certified. I wonder if Ms. Bradley is available.

Possibly. We could all try sending her a sample movement to be certified. Maybe you'll get a certificate suitable for hanging.

Neurolingistic Programming has been popular over the years - how a person moves their eyes can suggest if they are accessing memories or if they are making things up as they go. Touching your mouth during a conversation can for example indicate the person is telling an untruth. It is an interesting science but must be in the context of the situation.
