Landrieu -- Sugar and spice

WASHINGTON, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Abraham Lincoln said, "You can fool some of the people all the time. You can fool all the people some of the time. But you can't fool all the people all the time." But don't tell that to the Mary Landrieu for Senate campaign.

Paul Harvey Aurandt (September 4, 1918 – February 28, 2009), better known as Paul Harvey, was an American radio broadcaster for the ABC Radio Networks. He broadcast News and Comment on weekday mornings and mid-days, and at noon on Saturdays, as well as his famous The Rest of the Story segments. His listening audience was estimated, at its peak, at 24 million people a week. Paul Harvey News was carried on 1,200 radio stations, 400 Armed Forces Network stations and 300 newspapers. His broadcasts and newspaper columns have been reprinted in the Congressional Record more than those of any other commentator.

The most noticeable features of Harvey's folksy delivery were his dramatic pauses and quirky intonations.

His success with sponsors stemmed from the seamlessness with which he segued from his monologue into reading commercial messages. He explained his relationship with them, saying "I am fiercely loyal to those willing to put their money where my mouth is."
