Savior, Fool or Demagogue

May 05, 2010

My latest academic article came out today in the K.B. Journal (the K.B. stand for rhetorician Kenneth Burke). The article is entitled "Savior, Fool or Demagogue: Burkean Frames Surrounding the Ten Commandments Judge." It examines responses to Roy Moore during his struggle to keep his Ten Commandments monument in the state courthouse. The piece explains why Moore's effort was unsuccessful and what it means for his future political career (he is currently running for Governor of Alabama).
