SUBSCRIPT: Huberman's cadence count goes all the way to the right. Right?

More and more people have been noticing that when Ron Huberman nervously moves into a Big Lie in his narratives his nervousness shows by his interspersing every sentence with "Right?!" "Right?!" The word seems to be half-question, half tic. But in reality it seems an unconscious way of proclaiming his political direction as well. Like many of the other homebound heroes who've paraded as tough guys over the past decade ago (think Richard M. Daley and George W. Bush, whose National Guard service during the Vietnam War saved Springfield Illinois and Austin Texas from being overrun by the Viet Cong), it also seems to indicate the direction they've been marching and their plans for everyone else if they can get away with it. No wonder they're hiding behind verbal tics and bombastic claims... 
