"It’s Time for a Change"
[haven't we heard this one before]
In 1952, there was no precedent in presidential elections for the use of television "spot" advertising—short commercials that generally run between twenty seconds and a minute. Governor Thomas Dewey, declaring spots "undignified," rejected their use in his 1948 presidential campaign. In 1952, most campaign strategists preferred thirty-minute blocks of television time for the broadcast of campaign speeches. What distinguished Eisenhower’s campaign from Stevenson’s was that it relied more on spot ads than on speeches. The campaign pioneered their use with a series of ads titled "Eisenhower Answers America."
no offense taken but that word (incredulity) was a surprise all the same

I suppose I could have used the word 'surprise' but honestly, I truly can't believe I'd never bothered to dig deeper than the standard clip that everyone knows quite well, so both a) no offense intended and b) thanks for the additional material! I guess I was projecting my own incredulity that I'd left a nugget of nearly prophetic wisdom like this on the shelf for so long. This thread has me re-evaluating Dwight quite a bit
Then again, I read about 90% of Heinlein's stuff before reading Stranger in a Strange Land so maybe I subconsciously save the meaty stuff for last

English is not my first language, and must admit that I am having a hard time understading your points on the scientific-technological elite, and how it relates to the quote. Could you dumb it down a bit?
Either way - thank you for sharing the full quote.
