Judging People By How They Speak

From a Wall Street Journal column by Michael P.H. Stanley headlined “John Fetterman and the Gravity of Language”:

As a neurologist, I had two reactions to last week’s Pennsylvania Senate debate between Democrat John Fetterman and Republican Mehmet Oz. First, I thought it was admirable of Mr. Fetterman to participate, even though the effects of his recent stroke were grossly apparent. Second, the alarm over Mr. Fetterman’s fitness for office tells me that even in this image-saturated age, the American people are hungry for serious thought.
