Stop With The Stumping
Stumping is clearly a throwback to the days when politicians campaigned in small towns, didn’t have PA systems and there was no such thing as TV coverage. They stood on a stump to be seen and heard.
When’s the last time you saw a politician standing on a stump?
Bill Clinton Stumps For Wife in Baker City. In the pic, he’s standing on concrete steps.
No politician is going to be seen standing on a stump for fear of someone from the Green movement asking why the tree was cut down. No more stumping. Or soapboxes for that matter. When’s the last time you saw one of those?
