Comic Book Apologia: The "Paranoid" Rhetoric of Congressman George Hansen.
Short, Brant
Western Journal of Speech Communication, v51 n2 p189-203 Spr 1987
Analyzes George Hansen's apologetic rhetoric from the perspective of a generic, "paranoid-style" of discourse to show why the Congressman was able to defend his character to the satisfaction of nearly one-half of his constituency. Uses the Hansen case to illustrate the development and function of a rhetorical genre in a given historical context. (JD)
