Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This story here in The Atlantic, Mike Lee, talking about how the GOP has got to part with spin and personality.  Well, now, Lee is wise to say this because spin and personality are what?  What is that?  That’s sophistry.  It means nothing.  All it does is allow people to use the term “conservative” to personally and monetarily benefit from it.  In other words, it’s nothing more than a marketing slogan.  He’s right.  Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mike:  This story here in The Atlantic, Mike Lee, talking about how the GOP has got to part with spin and personality.  Well, now, Lee is wise to say this because spin and personality are what?  What is that?  That’s sophistry.  It means nothing.  All it does is allow people to use the term “conservative” to personally and monetarily benefit from it.  In other words, it’s nothing more than a marketing slogan.  He’s right.  He gives a speech at the Heritage Foundation last Tuesday.  He gave a very harsh criticism of his colleagues in the Grand Old Party.  Listen to this, Lee said this:
